Have you seen them?!

My latest reviews, that is!! Hop on over to my review blog and see what I've tried out lately!

We've been keeping the roads hot! We just spent several days with Chris' parents, but now we're back home and gearing up for Vacation Bible School (woo hoo!) It will be a long week, but it will SO be worth it to share God's Word with the kids! I'm helping out in music this year, and am very excited about that!

I've gotten to enjoy reading some books for PLEASURE! Can you believe it?! It feels so good to have completed my goal of getting my Master's and becoming a reading specialist. At the same time, I'm excited to have a little more free time on my hands. Now if I can successfully complete the VRA (Virginia Reading Assessment) next month, I'll be one happy camper! I've already had one dream where I'm back in class and have forgotten to do my assignment for class...I knew those would start again! :)

Hope ya'll are enjoying the summer!

My attempt at photo editing

This is a cinema setting, and Adam chose the coloring.

It reminds me of the plates and cards and paintings and such of babies sleeping from bygone days, what do you think?

Wordless Wednesday: Graduate

Though we have already 'walked' in our graduation ceremony, we still had to finish two classes before receiving our diplomas. I have two papers to finish and one class meeting to attend, and I will have completed my Master's Degree in Reading! I'm very proud of all I've accomplished, especially when we threw lil Robbie's growing and birth in there! Thanks be to God!

Shew! Glad that's over!

I am officially on summer break! :) I went back to school for the last 7 days and 2 workdays. Mom and Dad kept Robbie while I was at work, and that went well. Work went just fine..I did lots of my homework since most of the time students were on field trips, having parties, field days, graduations, etc. I have two class sessions left and then I'm FINISHED with my Master's! Wooooooo hoooooooo!

Robbie is growing like a little weed! He loves to play on his little Infantino gym, and enjoys swinging in his swing. He also does well being carried around in the sling. He even went on a shopping/errand trip with me yesterday and did wonderfully! Isaac made advanced on all his standardized tests....actually made a perfect score on 3 of 'em, and only missed 1 on the 4th! He is now in the Honor Society at his school! Adam finished up his T-ball season and Kindergarten, and is raring to go for 1st grade! Chris is working at the day camp at our Tae Kwon Do school this summer, so the big boys will be going with him on the days he works. Though I didn't love the idea at first, I think it is gonna work out well.

So there's a little update from us! We're off to Annual Conference tomorrow at Lake Junaluska for a few days. Can't wait!
