August Arrived

Swimming with Dumb and Dumber!!!
HA HA HA!!!!!!!!!!
Fun with the HAWKINS!!!
We decided it was time to pass
on Hadlee's beloved doll house!
It kinda hurt...but Troy wasn't going
for me saving it for the grandkids.
He said he will buy them all new everything;)
Thankfully sweet Brandy's precious
girls were excited to take it 
so that made it much easier!!!
Ryan passed along this catcher's gear to Huds!
Sometimes this little girl takes
my breath away...
She has the aerial down 
on the trampoline!!! :)
I love some alone time with her!

All.Day.Every.Day.
Except when Sister is making him
play "school"!!!!!!!
Lunch with Baby Mallon!!!!!!
She is sooooooooooo precious!!!

Swimming over at Mrs. Neuhaus's!

After MUCH debate (and a lot of begging
and pleading!), we let Hadlee
create her own Instagram!  
The teacher girls were her first post:)

My Happy Place!!!!!!!!!!
Daddy got a new truck!!!

Unfortunately Hayden G moved away:(
He was such a cutie. He and his family
will be very missed.  He had a few kiddos
over to swim before he left.
He was the first boy that I know of
to have a crush on my girl;)
Blonde Boy

Hadlee LOVES how her mama is
loud and crazy in stores just to 
embarrass her!!!!!!!!!!!  
Visiting our dear friend, Mr. V!!!
I'm so thankful that we got this pic

Mr. V is such a special soul!

OR their silly antics!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Cromie Time!!!!!!!!!!
Ella had stayed over for the night.
I cracked up at Hadlee's text to me
at 3:27 am..."We are still awake
if that's ok"!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Sadly, I received word in August 
that one of my former students
had died in a tragic diving accident 
in our lake.  I immediately had to 
pull up pictures from his class
and there he was...........
I LOVED this group of kiddos
that I had in Pre-AP English II.  
We held a very special candle light
vigil at MHS in honor of Nick.  

The year I had Nick I was searching for 
a white football helmet for Walker to 
wear for Halloween with his A&M 
football uniform.  Nick was so quick to 
tell me that he had one and that he would
bring it to school.  Sure enough he did.
I had it for a while and then Hudson
came upon it and he LOVED it.
Nick let us keep it(: 
Coach V then gave Hudson Midway
stickers for it.  Hudson is in this helmet
soooooooooooooo often.
Such a reminder of Nick❤

This was my Facebook post about Nick...
"Larger than life, a force of nature, so lovable, quite the character" ... all words used to describe Nick at his service. As his former teacher, I couldn't agree more with those words!!!! My heart is broken for his family and friends. It's just unfathomable. As a parent, I absolutely loved what his dad had to say about leaving it all out there - all the time. I'll never forget Nick. In fact the year I had him, I was searching for a white football helmet for a costume for Walker. Nick jumped up and said he would bring me one and sure enough he did! That was Nick! Well, Hudson became attached to that helmet and Nick let us keep it and we even got Midway stickers for it. There are VERY few days that Hudson doesn't have that helmet on his head at some point in the day. We will treasure that most special helmet even more now...forever❥❤️ Nick was in one of my most favorite classes of all time. May God comfort his family and friends as only He can. So many prayers...."
Putting in some work!!!!!!!!!
Grandmother and her high school 
friends meeting up for lunch & fun!!!
Just like that, I was on my way back 
to school praying for an amazing year
and asking for God's grace and mercy 
 as we adjust to back to school!
Getting my new classroom ready!!!
I moved directly across the hall to get a window!!!
I'm so thankful that my boy attends
