This blog was created with the intent of keeping you in touch with our family. I am a secondary school teacher and an adjunct history instructor. The last 25 plus years of my life have been shared with my husband Randal. He works for an Electric Coop. We have one daughter, who graduated from Tech this year. We are amazed daily at how God works in our lives.
We are finally moved in and have got most of everything unpacked and put up in its place. Our house is starting to look and feel like a home. It is not home yet, but I know God will make it home. I keep thinking back to my childhood years when our family moved from town to town every couple of years. Back then I was certain the next place would never feel like home, but in the end it always did. I am sure we will in time call this home too. We have met several of our new neighbors and they are all very nice and friendly. I have had the chance to get acquainted with some of the staff at New Home ISD and they all seem very nice. I feel I am really going to like being a Leopard. Yesterday, Ashley was helping me get my classroom ready. I was putting up a bulletin board and I laughed because I didn't even know how to spell Leopard's. I couldn't decide if the A should be an E or an A. Ashley laughed and said, "Don't worry Mom, they will just get to know the real you." I am not sure exactly what she was implying..... I will always be a Bobcat at heart.
1. Gathering around the table to eat as a family 2. Playing card games and etc. 3. Family albums (especially old ones) 4. Laughing so hard until you cry or until someone starts snorting, which makes you laugh even harder. 5. Reminiscing about the past. It usually means dragging up some old story that probably needs to be kept in the past. 6. Watching movies and eating popcorn together. 7. Family vacations are the best. 8. Birthday dinners and etc. 9. Giant get togethers with my family. 10. The fact that I am a wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt and belong to my family.
