Staff Development at Camp Thurman

This has been a long week for me. It was a week filled with staff development. However, on Friday our principal took us to Camp Thurman in Arlington for team building activities. It was a great day. We had so much fun. We also had fun getting to know one another outside of school. I packed my camera and took as many pictures as I could while we were performing activities. It was the best staff development I have had in years. Just the fact that we didn't have to sit through another meeting was the best part. It was hot, but well worth every minute. I hope you enjoy seeing some of my collegues hard at work.

Anna Beth's Birthday

It finally happened. Rocky and I finally gave AB her birthday party. Her birthday was June 21 and we were in Chicago. She had a family birthday party in Louisiana and has been asking to have one with friends. We finally were able to fit it into our schedule before school started. She invited four friends to "Let's Jump" - an indoor facility with large inflatables. We left our house at 10:15am. Upon arriving at Let's Jump the girls went crazy. They were sweating after about 15 minutes. We jumped until noon and then headed for Chick-fil-A for lunch. After lunch it was back for more jumping. We left to head home at 2:30. It was a full day of jumping, but I think they had a blast. Rocky and I had fun just watching them and taking pictures. Check out the pics and a video of all their fun.

Sunday Fun

Sunday was a great time for fun in the sun! After church we ventured to the Rutledge's house for burgers and swimming. There were several families there. We had a great time. Chris and Debbie taught our girls to dive off the diving board. Parker and Anna Beth both learned to do a cannonball...alot of swimming firsts for the girls. They had a great time and we had a great time watching them.

After everyone left, we hung around to play cards. However, we ended up playing dominos...after we made our Dairy Queen run! You know "everybody likes parfaits." Chris was the winner of mexican dominos and BJ was the "green weinie." The boys kept us laughing the entire game.
