Having Fun in Lower Alabama

This past Sunday night I had nursery duty, so I snapped a couple of shots (not good ones) of Justus and his nursery buddies. Justus is the oldest. The other boys are all 15-16 months old.
We also squeezed in a family mall trip. The kids rode the carousel.

Everything is business as usual around here-busyness! We have many upcoming events at the church. Several ladies' and I are attending the Deep South Ladies' Conference this Friday and Saturday. I am looking forward to it. It is being held at our school's home church. There will be about 300 other women there. The theme is "Under Construction." In a couple of weeks I have another ladies' LIFT meeting. My theme this time is "Turn Up the Heat." The focus will be on not being a lukewarm christian. The decorations and food will all be chili peppers/Mexican. The other events coming up mostly have to do with the holidays--from Fall Festival to Thanksgiving Service and Meal to Christmas Pageant to Choir Cantata to New Year's Watchnight Service to Valentine's Banquet to February Missions Fundraiser to April Missions Trip. WOW!! What a list!!
School--I had one student slap another student today in my homeroom!! The thing is it wasn't a girl that slapped someone. A boy slapped another boy. Then we had a student have a seizure during chapel today. He is fine and doing well. He has had problems with seizures for sometime. Needless to say, it was an eventful day!!
Progress reports came out yesterday. Chloe did alright she had 4 A's and 3 B's. That is not her best. We found out that her B's (other than penmanship--she has terrible writing) are due to her not completing her homework. She also received one "Needs Improvement" check and the rest "Satisfactory" on her conduct/participation/attitude. She has lost her t.v. privileges until this improves. We have 3 weeks until report cards come out. Abigail did very well. She got all A's and all Excellents in her conduct/participation/attitude. The results from the progress reports are sort of ironic to us, because we have lots of problems from Abbie at home right now and hardly any from Chloe. :)
Enjoy your week!

WOW _ makes me even MORE weary to read of your upcoming events :)... but that I because I read it like they are all happening at once :D Glad you are well... and the girls are doing well/OK in school. I do understand about the girls - Kyria brings home the "excellent sticker" every day and then I have to deal with some major attitude some nights... maybe she saves it up - HAHA
the Deep South Ladies Fellowship sounds fun - who is hosting it?
well... have a great day! said...

Hey, I'm just wondering ...

I work with ThumbPeople - we 're all about intentionally speaking positive and affirming words to kids and adults that help them to see themselves as the precious miracles God created them to be!

We do this with kids books and with encouraging music for both kids and adults that speak Gods blessings and promises into their lives.

Sounds busy! .... like my life! Sometimes I'd like to just crawl in a hole and take a rest.... but, I guess I'd be dead if I did that:)

Have a great weekend!
