Snapshot a Day (5.15)

It's "fun day" here at work, so I only have a quick second to get on. I hope everyone has a great day! It's cooler here, but it's almost Friday, so no complaints from me!

Here's an IG shot. This little boy has my heart!

Aw, Sadie, that's super sweet. What a beautiful smile.

Super tired this morning, but I got this one on the walk home from school this a.m.

great shots from both of you!

What a sweet smile, Sadie! I'm glad you had time to share it w/ us. It really brightened my morning.

Tracy - all I can say is WOW! I mean ... W.O.W.! Biggrin I want to walk home from school w/ you one day.

things here are tough - my dad had a heart attack yesterday. he is doing much better today and may actually get to go home in a few days. but I will likely just be lurking most of the time for the next few days as I drive back and forth from the VA hospital in Houston (about a 2 hour drive one way).

TFS ladies! I really needed to see these this morning. Biggrin

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear about your dad, GiGi Sad HUGS!

Sadie, that boy is growing up too fast!

Tracy, is that lily of the valley?? It almost looks like it, but isn't quite as bell shaped as I remember.

I think we're finally on the mend! A stomach virus made its way through the family, then the big boys came down with strep throat. Everyone was back to school all week this week. Jackson had his last day of school Sad I'm SO sad that he won't be with his teacher anymore. She was incredibly wonderful, and the best personality for Jackson. No only is the school year over, she's also moving to AL Sad I can't say that I didn't well up when we said goodbye yesterday.

Great teachers are worth their weight in gold, aren't they? I can't tell you how excited I was to hear Nora's kinder teacher is not retiring after all. There's a very strong chance Micah will get her (she loves him, and I have requested her in writing, so between the two things, it will probably happen). Meanwhile, Nora's grade 1 teacher is also awesome, but will be leaving the school and I know Micah won't get her, which is sad. It's just great to have awesome teachers, and so sad to say goodbye to them!

Apparently this is not lily of the valley, but Solomon's Seal. I knew the shape was wrong for lily of the valley, but it was Amy who told me on FB that it was Solomon's Seal. She sure knows her stuff. Biggrin

Teachers are people, my 15 year old had 1 bad teacher in all of elementary school (Grades JK-8 ), and she was older so sorted it out on her own when it happened.

Natalie on the other hand has started off with a bad teacher I will be requesting a different teacher for her SK year. That said Dana's JK and SK teacher is now a grade 1 teacher, she is fantastic, so I'll put a request in for her when the time comes, she gets back from maternity leave the year Natalie starts grade 1 (the teacher is a friend of my BFF through church and the school board).

Tracy- another AMAZING shot! Love this one!
GiGi- I will be praying for your family. (((HUGS))) Thinking of you.
Steph- Ruthie's teacher this year has been PERFECT for her and I am so sad that Ruthie has to move up. Randy starts K this year so I am worried sick...IDK which teacher I want him to get.
Amanda- Sorry you have had issues with teachers. Not fun. Hope you get the one you want!
