The light at the end of the tunnel...

Yes, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel,umm I mean school year! I am beginning towrap things up fro this year and look twoards next year. No cases of swine flu, here, that we know of. Of course, Coy said the health department says a flu test takes 7 days to complete now, so who knows!!! JoGail is reading like a crazy girl trying to get to 100 AR points by Wednesday. I think she is at 94.5. It's been neat watching her grow as a reader since she struggled so much at first. She's also getting a little taller and thinning out a little. Grace was about that age when she starting thinning out, too. Grace is looking forward to her summer workouts at school. Every morning at 8. She lives for that just finished a workout feeling. She has her first band contest Friday in Canton. She's trying to get out of wearing a skirt on the bus on the way over there. We'll see. Both girls are in the TriCounty 3 on 3 tournament this weekend. As always our goal will be to avoid getting sunburned! It's a wualifying tournament, so if either on ewas to win first they would get to participate at the next level. 3 on 3 is hard because the field is small, the goals are really really small and it goes fast. An entire game lasts 23 minutes. It's not about power at all. Grace will have to tone it down a little! hahaMade fish for supper with spinach, blackeyed peas and roasted veggies. I'm sure this recipe has been around for awhile, but it was new to me and was really really good!

Roasted veggies

8 red potatoes washed and quartered
16 baby carrots
1 can chicken broth
2 teaspons seasoned salt
1 zuchinni cut into small pieces

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Spray roasting pan with pam. Combine potatoes, carrots, salt, and 1/2 can chicken broth in roasting pan and cover. Cook for about 30 minutes. Add zuchinni and remainder of broth and cook for additional 15 minutes or until vegetables are tender.

More rain on the way........wahoo!!! Just what we need--another 4 inches!!!
