I need to post an update on here. We have been busy. Seems like so much has been going on.

Went to Oklahoma. Went to Kilgore. Those two trips were back to back weekends and we were worn out from all the driving. Fun, but glad to be back home.

I have also been working on my classroom trying to get things in order. First I had to pick a theme -- it took a while. I was having a brain block so I decided to steal my sister's idea and do monkeys. I really like how it is turning out so far. Way cute stuff at the teacher supply store. I also found some great stuff at Target. I {heart} that store. I have a lot of work to do still but it will get there.

The girls have been doing swimming lessons every morning at 8:00 these past two weeks. Friday is their last day. They have really enjoyed it.

On Saturday the 19th Mike's sister and kids will come to town for a wedding. They'll stay with usthat night. Then, on Monday the 21st, my parents, sister and her kids will be here to get me and the girls. We are following them to Oklahoma and then to Kansas for our first family reunion on my mom's side. I'm pretty excited about the reunion. Allison is too. She really enjoys visiting the Kansas family.

I have pictures to upload from the camera. I have some pictures from the 4th that I really like. Some fun family pictures. I also have some of the girls. They are such hams! Every time that camera is out Ally is posing! She is such a crack up!

Well, I didn't mean to ramble tonight. I'll do a better update tomorrow. And, I might even change the blog color. I think the pink is working my nerves. Got any color combo suggestions?

More later!

I raided Target's dollar spot also--love the flash cards and maps. Good thing that I got to it early because all 3 of my T's are just about sold out of the teacher stuff...It must be fun picking out a theme. I'm kinda doing that too. I'm trying to mix it up and not do so much of the "traditional" social studies stuff.

Oh I heart Target too! :) Your room is sounding so cute. Have a nice visit with your family this weekend too!
