Blog neglect

I have to confess, I have been spending too much time with another online obsession. I fought it for a long time but ultimately, I was sucked in. I am a FACEBOOK addict. It began as a way to keep up with the students I supervise. Then I connected with people I hadn't seen in a long time. Soon, I was staying up late on the computer. While I don't like sitting around wasting time, I think it is fun to travel the world, go to prom, see new babies, etc, all at the click of a button.

So, if you are on facebook, I'd love to be your friend.

A new scout

It's official. Drew has made a commitment to scouts! He has his eye set on the EAGLE!

UIL District Champ

UIL results are in. Evan decided not to compete this year. That won't happen again!

Drew did well. He placed first in Number Sense and first in Maps, Graphs and Charts.

He placed 5th in Social Studies. I didn't even know he was competing in this subject until 2 days before the competition. He thought it was easy so he was a little surprised that he didn't do better. I don't know how he was suppose to know some of the answers. One question he asked me about after the test was "Who was the founder of the NAACP?" I don't have a clue and apparently he doesn't either.

School is almost out for summer. I am looking forward to it but also a little worried about keeping the kids busy.

Earth Day

I just had to share this with all of you in blog world. The cool people from Baylor created a bicycle powered smoothie machine. We talked them into taking it to Hillcrest for our Earth Day celebration. The smoothies were YUMMY!

Race for the Cure

The guys in our family ran the Race for the Cure Saturday morning. It was a chilly morning. They all ran well. Evan ran with his friends from school. They had a great time for a great cause.
