Verse of the Day!

Friday, May 12, 2006


Here is an update on the tree. I'm sure you are all just dying to know the latest. Both trees are officially goners! Mark went out last night to get an extension cord and heard the trees creaking again. I had the assembly line going for kid showers. I heard a loud BOOM and ran outside. I am glad Mark was not right under the trees. They are huge. We can't see any grass in our backyard. I think Mark was very discouraged that he was unable to save the Pecan tree.

The Artist Market was a lot of fun. The night was perfect for an outdoor event. We needed the time to just hang out. We loved spending time with those of you who had a chance to make it to the Market. We feel blessed to have such an incredible art department at Hillcrest. So many schools have had to cut "fluff" programs due to funding. I don't happen to think that music, art, technology etc are fluff but some of those political decision makers seem to.

Since our friend, Cliff shared his crazy day, I thought I'd share mine so far.
