TGIF!!!!!

Updated....my aunt Glenda who was only 47 years old passed away early this morning. She had diabetes. Please keep my family in your prayers. She has a daughter Ashley who is her 20's.

Good Morning everyone! Well it's another nice day. The sun is shining...not sure for how long..but it is shining. I have showered and fed Madison gotten her up and going as school pictures are today. Miller has his music class this morning...pray for me....we have been twice and he continuously wont listen to me. He wants to play the darn keyboards and they get to play these but for only a couple of minutes and they move on...well he doesn't want to move on.....so give me some strength and courage today to walk back in there and wrestle with him.
Yesterday I took him to see what we call Touch A Truck.....the area businesses bring their BIG trucks to the park and close areas off so little kids can get up in them and get pictures made with them...we did the Post Office Truck, Dump Trucks, Concrete Trucks, Military Vehicles, a Helicopter, an Ambulance, Firetruck, a semi...you get the idea...pretty cool....Miller enjoyed it but not the lines we had to stand in..that was an obstacle for me.
Tonight is our first home football game....and its Homecoming. We are going. Actually with 20 of our friends and their kids...we are eating dinner and heading over. I always loved Homecoming...you all know I was queen in 1991....so it's always a big deal for me....and Madison.
I guess I have rambled on enough...I hope you all have a great day.

I meant to tell you my stepdaughter's name. You said she look familar. Her name in school was Amy Williamson and she graduated in 95. Did you know her?

I was wondering how the Touch a Truck went. I think that is such a neat idea. Minus the lines that is!

The truck thing does sound fun, yeah, lines not so much! Katelyn would have enjoyed that. Those 2 year olds have minds of their own sometimes don't they!
Enjoy the game!

We have school pics today, too.

The Touch A Truck sounds like an awesome idea! What fun.

Boy, you guys are having homecoming early, huh? Here is usually about 1/2 way into the season or so.

Have fun and have a great weekend, Jen! :0)

I'm so sorry about your aunt, Jen. It scares me when I hear of someone dying so young due to complications of diabetes. She was way, way too young to die and I'm so sorry for her family, especially her young daughter.

I'll keep all of you in my prayers.

Sorry to hear about your Aunt. I will pray for her family.

That's so funny that Miller wants to play the keyboard. I know boys can be very persistent, but he knows what he wants and he's going for it. Can't fault him for that. Why can't he just stay with the keyboard? I know it's a class but maybe the teacher can be flexible here. Boys are headstrong, but it's part of what makes them achieve. Just try to go with the flow because I can tell you it will make your life a lot easier. With boys just discipline on the big issues, the rest don't sweat, otherwise you will be disciplining him the entire day, as you've probably figured out. Good luck and let us know how the next class goes.
