IF, by Rudyard Kipling

I ran across this poem last year while looking for a poem to do a research paper on - it has stayed with me since then.  I love this.  This is another prayer I pray for my son!

New Discovery

Source: via Shonz on Pinterest

Yes!  I have discovered Pinterest! 
What an addiction this is going to be. 
I have found fun ideas for teachers gifts, treats, Sunday School, etc! 
 I suggest you check it out.






I've had my doubts about the daily pictures.  The uniforms make every picture look just alike!  However, maybe you have noticed his PERSONALITY coming out!  He's quite a ham!

This week there is another difference in the pictures.  BLUE JEAN SHORTS!  Hudson PEP took up donations for the local Firemen.  If students paid $4 they were able to wear jeans all week......well, everyday but Friday, they still had to earn them for Friday.  Hudson PEP raised over $3000!  Approximately $400 of that was from Logan's class.  They collected more than any other class and won an ice cream party!! 
 Friday was an exciting day.

I got a new camera!  I do NOT know the first thing about cameras.  I want them to do all the work for I have a new challenge in front of me.  Below are some of my first pictures taken - YES!  I know I have a long way to go.

 I hope your week was blessed!

My Logan ~ Our Life

Ten years ago America was attacked. 
 I will never forget that day: 
where I was, who I was with, what I was doing....
I will NEVER Forget.

And now....our week in pictures!

 (There isn't a Monday picture because...I forgot:(  It was Labor Day.)


(I sure think he is handsome!)

He earned his jeans again!  GO Logan!

Quotes for Moms

When you are a mother, you are never really alone in your thoughts. A mother always has to think twice, once for herself and once for her child. ~ Sophia Loren

Don't worry that children never listen to you; worry that they are always watching you. ~ Robert Fulghum

The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. ~ Osho

What a Week!

I've actually made it two weeks....I have taken a picture of Logan each school day for two weeks now!  THAT is quite an accomplishment for me.  The only thing about these weekly photos are they all look the same because of the uniforms but trust me - it IS a different week.

As I sit here posting to my blog there are people fighting for their homes due to extreme wildfires popping up all over Texas.  There happens to be one not too far east from my house.  Scary.
