Three Weeks into Summer...

I was so excited when I received an e-mail saying that my blog has been nominated for this fantastic award! Voting begins June 25th and ends July 2nd.  I am still working on the details of how friends and followers can vote.  I'll get back with you when I get the nitty gritty...

A little over 12 hours ago we pulled the family truckster back into our driveway.  We went to Phoenix, AZ for the Far-West Championships.  It was HOT, HOT, and well, HOT.  Unfortunately my son's team did not make it past the semi-finals.  However, they played with heart and soul and battled with the best from the western states!  Christopher has been playing with an injured ankle for over two months.  It is actually a blessing that they didn't advance.  Now he gets a break to let his body heal and go through the necessary repairs {which we will find that out on Monday}.  Fingers crossed that is isn't serious. 
I love this kid more than anything in the world and watching him play makes me smile.

As of today my summer TO-DO list has not been touched.  But, I finished reading the first of the Fifty Shades...I couldn't put it down.  I'm four pages into Darker...not wanting to put it down.  I'm also continuing the Daily 5 book study with other fantabulous teachers.  My focus now really needs to be on Christopher's ankle and getting him healed.  And, on cool mornings/evenings I will be tending to the garage that is overflowing with themed tubs that need to be organized...again.


  1. I am just getting into 50 Shades Darker too. I literally read 50 Shades of Grey in 1 day. I could not put it down. It is such a good trilogy!

  2. Thank you so much for stopping by my blog today and for following me. I am now following you too! Seriously, the 50 Shades series was so awesome... I was reading until WAY too late each night and even would pick it up in the morning before school! I think the first and third ones were better than the second. Just my opinion though!! I hope your son's ankle heals quickly. Take care,
