Denver Bound/This and That

We put Chandler on a plane this morning for Denver, Colorado. He is going to a soccer camp that he was selected to attend along with 99 other soccer players from across the country in his age group. He was so excited to be going. As soon as the lands here in Memphis we will drive him to Tuscaloosa, Alabama for Olympic Development Regional Camp. I hate for him to be gone so long but know that he loves to play soccer and he will have a blast, not to mention all the wonderful training he will get.

Carson, Cameron, and I along with some friends went to see Ice Age 3 on opening day. We knew it was going to be crowded. We rushed to get there and just take a look around the boys seats .... no one there... There ended up being about 40 people in the theater but nothing like what we anticipated. I liked the movie but did prefer Ice Age 1 and 2.

I am going to start teaching 5th grade this fall so I have been racking my brain trying to come up with bulletin board ideas and been purchasing posters etc. for my room. It has been fun and overwhelming all in one, and quite expensive. I guess the first year always is. I am excited about this new chapter in our lives but am a little worried at how it will all come together. I am going to have to be organized (a trait which I lack) and prepared both at school and home. But I don't want to fall into the trap of thinking I can do and have it all because I know it will not be possible.

Any of you who teach school that might have ideas for boards please let me know. Thanks

I know I haven't been a great poster lately but I have been a lurker. So I am keeping up with everyone. Please forgive me if I don't comment. I am usually just checking in and logging off.

Blessings to you and have a wonderful 4th of July.. Happy Birthday America!

You must be so proud of him being chosen to attend the soccer camp. That is wonderful! Love the pics!
We also went to see Ice Age 3 and I thought it was pretty cute. I never saw 1 or 2 so we probably need to watch those as well.
Happy 4th!
Thanks for following my new blog. :)
