It's been a while.... & updates

I can't believe that it's been since Aug that I actually updated this blog. I really like my blog & I enjoy the idea of keeping some record of our adventures for the kids to read when the get older. But August...geesh! I really need to make some sort of monthly goal for updating "Daisy Mae's thoughts."

There is really too much to give you a play by play of what's been happening so I'll do the best I can & hope I don't leave out anything too important.

D - got promoted to Lieutenant of patrol shift. Yay for the promotion! Boo for the shift(1800-0600).

E - Started 7th grade. Currently, dating a "Rebbecca." Still in band. He played basketball for the Upward league and is currently playing rec soccer. It's been a bit of a struggle getting him to keep his grades up this yr. He participated in the Helen Ruffin Reading Bowl. He is now a teenager. ugh.

M - Started 2nd grade. He's doing really well in school. Such a social butterfly! He calls in friends on the phone all the time. He's even been known to call his coaches to chat on the phone. He loves to spend the night at his friends house. He has played fall soccer, Upward basketball, and now spring soccer. M is an amazing goalie & the last game he scored a really cool goal when playing offense.

Me - You know I didn't find a job when I graduated in May. So what have I been doing since then? I have put my name on several substitute teacher lists with different counties. Well, since then, I have been working most everyday. While it's not a whole heck of a lot of money, it does get my name out there. The hard work has seemed to pay off a bit as I was able to land a long term sub position. I started subbing for this kindergarten teacher in Feb. I will be there 'til at least the end of April. That's pretty cool huh? I NEVER thought that I could teach kindergarten & I was really scared to take the position but I sure am glad that I did. It has really given me a lot more experience than I had when I graduated.

Daisy Mae, Barnaby, Bandit, Squeakers, Rupert, (and the occasional visit from Stranger Cat), are all doing fine.

We are trying to save up money to make out fantasy vacation real this yr. You can ask me what the heck a fantasy vacation is. We have decided on Panama City Beach in this listing.

D & I took a trip to Huntsville, Al in Sept to visit the Space & Rocket Center. We had a free pass.

We have been walking a lot over at Stockmar Park. They have added farm animals to their exhibit. The pigs are SO cute. You can feed them saltines. When you walk by their pen, the pigs run up to you & wag their little piggy tails & snort & drool. So cute.

I have been taking video's with my phone and uploading the video's to my channel on YouTube. Be sure to check that out.

'Till nxt time :0)
