We enjoyed the shops and fun of Seaside and took lots of pictures which I can't see to find or keep organized.
I got back to life for a short time before leaving for a little girls' getaway. Due to the fact that three of us are moving in the next few weeks, we decided a little fun was in store. Rachel got to searching and found a wonderful cabin for our lodging. Seriously, Gravette, Arkansas, sounds pretty lame, but this place was wonderful! I have no clue what it's called, or I'd put a link to it. It's that good.Picturesque, if I do say so myself
There was a lot of eating, a lot of dancing, and lots of laughter. The only time we left the cabin all weekend was a quick run to the local Sonic. (We just can't seem to stay away from that place.) Too bad we didn't get a group shot...
Then, sadly back to reality. Now, y'all know I'm about to embark on the quest of being a 3rd grade teacher. I'm a bit of a perfectionist and can't stand the thought of posting pictures of a not-quite-finished classroom. But at the same time, I have had some help from others that deserves a quick mention...
Curtains by dear old mom are sure to be a hit! Don't doubt the burlap--it sure is cute!
He finished reading just in time to pose next to the finished easel/marker board thing. Whew! What an undertaking (lots of screws and parts)! I think he could definitely replace the woman in the ad for the catalog.
Mel got to work in the classroom library. She determined which books were worthy of a read and which were too sad for third graders. Such an avid student, that Mel!
Then, if was off to Austin! Sadly no pictures on my camera, but we had a blast! It was the reunion tour of the Four Shrewd Shoppers, and we lived up to our name. Erin served as the resident guide and took us around her old stomping grounds from her UT Law days. Seeing that 1/2 of the Four are currently preggers, lots of food was in store. The heat was manageable, and the weather cooperated all weekend. We shopped til we dropped and had tons of fun!
I got back from Austin just in time to get back to work in my classroom. It's still not there, but pictures to come soon, I promise!
Then, the best day of the year arrived! What day is that, you may ask...my BIRTHDAY of course!
The weekend was perfect! Dinner at Bonefish with my family and a day-trip to Branson with Will were in store. We had a wonderful time!
P.S. Have you ever played Gator Golf??? I certainly have. It's a must on my summer list! I'll leave you with a glimpse of the fun!
