Zelda called and left me a message saying thank you for some books I sent to her - in full sentences. "Thank you for the books. They were good. I love you la la. Bye Bye." I listened to the message about 10 times and then I just burst into tears - literally sobbing, because I feel like I am missing out on so much with her and I miss them so much. It has been nearly a year since I've seen them. That is toooooooooooo looooong!
Do you know how happy two people are going to be come Wednesday of next week. Then Thursday family will start arriving for graduation! Graduation, Graduation, Graduation!!!

Gotta put the tie behind your back when you're eating. It just wouldn't do to get queso on the tie
Are we late?
Just like dad. How sweet is this!
Grandma is blurry in this picture, but I just love the boy in this picture.
Kaitlin mohawked his hair. It was so cute. We got lots of comments through the night.
This could needs to get recruited by catalogs and make tons of money as a model to pay for college. You've gotta love the two tie look he was sporting.

Jonathan could have spent all day there picking grass for the horses. He is my animal lover.
I love Kaitlin's expression here. Ah, the care free days of childhood. The feel good days of spring breezes.
You should see this little horse trot and jump around next to her mama. It is so precious.
Meet Sassafras ("Sassy"), my friend Connie's new miniature pony. It looks like Sassy is actually going to be a dwarf, and she is as precious as they come. After book fair today we went to get sno cones and then headed over to Connie's to see the new baby (she's a little over a week old). The kids had a blast feeding the ponies grass and jumping on the trampoline.
Its been a great week at the Book Fair! I got so many great books! Here are Kaitlin and Jonathan in "Hollywood" which I helped to decorate for the "road trip". These are all the books I got this year. You can't even see them all in the picture. I love book fair!!!

2 tests (both a 96 oddly enough) and 2 projects turned in along with GT, GA, rehearsal, book fair and many other odds and ends. Yippee!
I have to register for Summer and Fall classes later this month. I will be very glad for a little break between this semester and Summer I. I am READY! I have 4 semesters left (if I go full force in the summers), then I will go one of two routes (choose your own adventure if you will)...I can do something like I Teach Texas to get my teacher certification (I am too far from the school for traditional student teaching) or I can go straight into my masters degree and get my teachers cert after that. Either way, I want to get my masters in one of two adventures....elementary ed focusing in early literacy or library science (I would love to be a librarian for an elementary school, and in Texas the latter degree is required.)
Pray for guidance in this school business. My degree is 127 hours. I already have about 130 and I still have 4 semesters to go - figure that out and you can see there are a lot of hard earned hours not counting for a hill of beans! I have 16 hours of spanish. I wish I could sell this stuff on ebay. 16 hours of unused college level spanish. I'll start the bid at $1000 to cover tuition, books, fees and hours studied! 16 hours of unused psychology including abnormal psych! I could go on, but now I am depressed!

I'm trying to design a graduation announcement that I like. I happened to have my camera today and got a few shots, but Charles hasn't really felt like modeling for me(big surprise). Maybe I should get some feedback from my loyal blog stalkers? What do you want to see? I'm going to be mailing out like 50 of these.
Mommy: "Oh, I love snuggling and hanging out with you too!" [Big Hugs]
"Kaitlin, what are three of your favorite things?"
Kaitlin: I-pod, Cake, and Presents (she is planning her birthday party and has decided she wants and i pod. Her birthday is in OCTOBER!).
