Strawberry Picking

One of my VERY good BFF's Heather ask us to go strawberry picking after school Monday. Heather is such a great mom, gardener etc. lets just say she has her own chickens and that's where she gets her eggs. So of course it made perfect sense to her to pick these yourself in stead of get the pre-picked baskets they had sitting waiting on you to buy! No seriously it was a lot of fun The kids LOVED it! Of course the funniest part was at my expense when I was fussing at my kids for getting in the mud while I stomped right through it in flip flops!! By the time we left Ella Blaire had mud up past her knees! Lots of fun I'm sure we will be going back  this one bucket will NOT last long!!!

Golden Apple Awards


Last Year Delaney's school participated with the Huntsville Times in writing a letter to nominate a teacher for a Golden Apple Award. Huntsville City, Madison City and Madison County school systems all participated elementary through high school. Ten letters were chosen and 10 well deserving teachers were recognized and awarded with the Golden Apple Award for doing all the MANY things a good teacher does.

Delaney nominated one of her teachers from Walnut Grove  Mrs.Wright. I can only skim the surface in telling you what a special teacher and person Mrs.Wright is because she is so wonderful this blog could turn into a novel. We knew Mrs.Wright was a special person in our lives way before these awards came about Delaney just put it on paper for other people to see. Mrs.Wright is a Godly woman and it shows in her daily walk through life. She is also a WONDERFUL teacher she has been there for Delaney while Delaney was in her class and after both through educational trials and personal trials. She is truly a beautiful person inside and out and we are forever grateful she was brought into our lives!!

The dinner was very nice Mrs.Heard (Walnut Grove's Vice Principal) and Dr.Terry Davis (Madison County's Superintendent) also shared a table with us. It is nice to have school officials that take time out of there awfully busy schedules to share things like this with their students and teachers.

So we are proud of Delaney and forever grateful and thankful for Mrs.Wright!

Hunting Season 2011

Today is the day to say GOODBYE to your husband until January if he is a hunter! Bye to spending time together on Saturdays, Bye to staying out or up late on Friday nights because they gotta get up early and if you really got it bad Bye to seeing him even during the week in the afternoons! Dove opening day starts it ALL we go from this to Deer Season and from that to Duck Season and anything else that has feathers or fur.
Really Mark is not  that bad though he does not hunt nearly as much as he has in  years past. Today Ella Blaire is going dove hunting with him. She was sooo excited her and Mark train his new dog Nellie (named after the gun brand Benellie) almost every afternoon. Today is Nellie's big first day! Hope she does good.
Well to all you hunting wives be patient with them they are still little boys at heart but make sure you get the same  amount of money they spent on guns, bows, hunting club memberships and whatever else to go shopping with every Saturday this fall!LOL!!

Happy Birthday Grandaddy

Happy Birthday Grandaddy this is your first birthday in Heaven. Right after you passed away in December it was Christmas very soon after and I remember thinking your first Christmas in Heaven is probably so much more beautiful than what we see down here. That's what I am thinking today on your birthday also. You are probably celebrating with your old dear friends you could not wait to see. I do not just hope you are having a wonderful birthday because I know you are and I take comfort in that as you would want me to. I still miss you though. You have a Happy Birthday Grandaddy and go sit up on that green hill looking over the River of Life you talked so much about. I Love You.
