Before I Get Disowned....

My dad actually asked me earlier in the week if I had changed the address to my blog. How sad is that?! It's been that long since I updated....sorry about that. One would think since I'm at home now (instead of working) that I would have a ton of free time on my hands. One would be wrong. LOL!

Field Day Fun Day
At the end of every school year the school has an activity day for the kids. Parents are asked to volunteer to help, which I have always done. This year I was assigned to the baton relay. Let me preface this by saying that it was honestly 98 degrees out and for whatever reason, our 'station' was the ONLY one that didn't have a tent for shade. Awesome. I won't go into a lot of details, but suffice it to say that between a water slide (that the parents didn't know about, therefore didn't dress our children appropriately), wet/sticky clothes and shoes, hot, thirsty and ill, it was pretty much a disaster.

I knew the minute I saw the water slide that if that was the first thing Anna Kate's class go on, she would be ready to go home as soon as she got off of it. And I was right. Our station was right after the slide, so putting shoes on wet and dirty feet to run a relay was not what those kids wanted to do....AK chose to sit out for the relay, so I took pictures of her BFF, Anslee.

She was so hot!!!

This was the only picture I was able to get of AK
Jumping hurdles :)

Between finding a snake, breaking up two fights, hauling one off to the principle and having two special needs boys wondering around without a teacher in sight, well, I was so relieved when my three-hour shift was up! AK and I bolted before anyone could stop us....
