You put a smile on my face.
You are pretty as lace.
You are full of grace.
You are my comfy place.

Poem I received this morning from Grace. Oh yeah, made my cry....JoGail gave me decorated paper plate full of good food (strawberries, cherries, sushi (thanks TAC and Joey) and watermelon) with a paper towel taped to it that she had drawn a fork, knife, and spoon. on. Priceless......oh-Grace also gave me coupon to 1 ( and only 1) of her books from her 'collection'. Pretty priceless......have to take her up on that one this summer!

Had the 3 on 3 tournament this weekend. Pretty much like a day long picnic. Grace was the only one who got a little sunburned. So I felt like it was a successful weekend. Both girls won and lost some games. They said they had fun. One more tournament for Grace-Memorial Day weekend in Tyler. She play some teams we haven't played before so that will be interesting. Hope we get a chance to see Jason, Rebecca and maybe Leigh Ann and Trey that weekend. We probably won't get a chance to leave to soccer field, so they will have to generously come see us there!

Banquet week is this week. One on Tuesday and one on Thursday. (Top Ten and National Honor Society) The Top Ten one is cool. The top ten in the graduating class choose their most influential teacher and read an essay about them and present them with a plaque. Pretty cool.
Looking forward to graduation finally being held in Eustace! I have to make arrangements to go since I have a workday in Mabank on that Saturday. The gym is almost ready. Coy keeps telling people ready or not it's happening there. For pictures on the new gym, you go to and click on the superintendent's blog link on the right. He writes a blog every day. He's been busy trying to mow this afternoon. Finally have a chance! We were talking this afternoon and it's going to be weird not having soccer next Saturday! I secretly wish it was Canton weekend! haha

Oh yeah1 The BIG news of the week--JoGail made 100 AR points! It was truly a family effort to get her there, but we got her there by the deadline. So she gets to go on a field trip to Chuck E Cheese and she was the only one in her teacher's class to get there! Plus she will get 5 balls to throw at the teacher in the dunking booth in a couple of weeks. She has come a long way with her reading! We are so proud of her!!

TAKS scores should be in Thursday or Friday for those wondering. At least that's about when it has been in the past.

Grace has her end of year band concert tomorrow night. The competition was postponed because of the flu scare, so she also has that this week. She's decided to wear capri pants (she hates those) in lieu of the dress!She was funny last week when she found out that 'waffling' was a verb. She thought that was really cool. I can't believe she will be a 7th grader next fall! WOW!!!
