My Hubby is sooo cool

lately I have been major stressed. Stressed about starting school, teaching,and not having a classroom. Woody has been the best. He listens to me as I cry and whine about being stressed and then calms me down, makes lists with me of everything that I can do. He is just the best.

Today he went with me to run some errands, one of them to the teacher store. He loved it! He kept saying oo this is cute, you could get this. He helped me pick things out that would work for my theme, and gave me suggestions. And afterwards he said, this store is fun!

I just love him and am so grateful for him and how much he helps me and does everything he can to make my life easier.

Just thought you should know :)
for Brighton's birthday this year we bought him a T-ball and it was a total success!! He has gotten pretty good at it too

His birthday was a while ago, but it took me forever to upload the pictures so I decided to post them anyways
Welcome to my school!!! Wood went up with me on Saturday to drop off my bookcase and laminate some stuff so I had him take a quick picture of my new home away from home!
Good news: The new date for my classroom to be done is on the 22nd!! I sure hope it is :)

Today, I painted

My sweet sister Shani had donated lots of things to my classroom, one being this lovely bookcase!! Well I decided it needed to be spruced up a bit! (P.S. that is an article of clothing hanging from the tree in the upper right hand corner... my neighbors are wishing for a clothes line)
So I took some red painted and some paint bruises and a tarp :)
and painted!! And woody painted too! AND I wish I had stood farther away so you could get the effect of looking through the bookshelf at woody, o well I'm working on it!
And here is the final product! I think it looks good if I do say so myself. AND sorry for the shadows it was being very picky as to where it would stay standing.. it's stubborn

Back to School!!

I can NOT believe that it's already August and school is starting sssoo soon! Today I went down to my school to drop off all of the stuff that Shani had donated to my classroom and to kind of get started with everything...

the good news: I got keys!! wad up! I can now enter the school when other people are not there, if I so desire!

the bad news: classroom is still being built and it looks the Saturday before school starts is when it'll be done..... if it doesn't rain.

SO I'm not really sure how to handle back to school night, not really sure how I'm going to get my classroom ready in one day, but nothing I can do!! So right now I'm trying to get stuff cut out and laminated and shop for all the things I need, that way it can just all be thrown together, wish me luck!!

Flag Football!!!!

Wood has been playing flag football with some of the boys from the ward and they just had their semi-final game! Sadly.. it did not end so well But I got to bring my fancy camera and try out my ZOOM lens! SHVEET! Well I learned that it's a lot harder than one may think, you have to ALWAYS be ready and focused on the person you want. I definitely did not watch as much of the game as I would like mostly I just tried to stay focus on Woody.. here are some of the end results:

This one I'll probably end up playing with in photoshop, but it turned out O.k.
Poor kid, couldn't keep up with my man

this is a pretty good one, if I do say so myself
this one isn't really in focus but he's got a cute smile
After spending almost the entire game with my eye in the lens I now appreciate why my mom did not like video recording or taking pictures of events because you really do not get to truly enjoy it! But the pictures are fun!!
