This will be our first 4 home team mash up ever! Very exciting.

These are great ones but you have to register a school. The few they do have are usually double than the ones above. Well worth it.

Very Powerful!

James Lankford was a speaker about 16 years ago at a church camp that I went to. About a year later we were able to get him to come speak at our school. Even back then he made quite an impression. Last year he ran as State Rep. of Oklahoma against a very tough opponent and won in a surprise victory. Since then he has been making an impassioned mark in political circles. And he still has a knack for making you think with his speeches. Here is a recent video on his view of abortion. Definitely makes one stop and think.



And here is another story that details the Dr. arrested yesterday in regards to the murder he was committing. As well as some other sad things that brings tears to my eyes.

Happy 30th birthday to my hubby

It was actually yesterday but my internet was out. We did our celebrating today anyway as I worked literally all day long, catching up from the snow days. We went to Red Lobster for lunch and then Cold Stone Creamery for dessert. The kids from his class got him a huge birthday cookie cake with a atom on it. Thought that was very nice.

On repeat...

Two snow days in a row...

Leaves a lot of free time. It's rare that I find a new song I like anymore. Seems most new music these days "sucks". Occasionally one comes out and I get really excited that I like it. Adele is my new fav with her song "Rolling in the deep". Just downloaded it off of Amazon and I have been listening to it for about 30 minutes straight so far.

Check it out!

Chicken Pox, dead birds, and other randomness...

Had our first and only case of Chicken Pox this week. Gage began showing spots on Sunday. No other symptoms other than the spots so that was good. He had a shot when he was younger. Ryker had his second shot a couple of weeks ago and we wondered if maybe that was the cause. Turns out there have been several outbreaks at his school. Luckily, he only missed three days of school and Steven got to stay home with him (I don't get paid days off like teachers do). He went back to school today and was actually ahead of where his classmates were because he finished a homework assignment that they were still working on.

On a totally different bird note. This is totally bizarre! Read down near the bottom to see where it all is happening. Not just Arkansas.

This week also marked the beginning of the 2011 derby season and I have already managed to pull a glute (butt) muscle. It's nice to be back in the swing again. Got me a new helmet finally today and some decent wrist guards. Had the same helmet for the past 2 or 3 seasons I think and I usually just buy cheap kiddo wrist guards. Our 4 home teams are making a splash and I am loving the competition it is bringing out in us. Good competition of coarse.

Tomorrow is my day off and Ryker and I are going to sleep in and just sit around relaxing. In the evening I am going to head over to my Captain Slamie's casa for some shirt decorating and hot tub hopefully. Maybe it will help heal by injured butt muscle. You know what it feels like when you get dead legged in the thigh? That's what it feels like in my left butt muscle. What do they call that? A dead butt!?!
