So, I have been absent from blogging for a couple of weeks, but it is with good reason. School started back, church activities started back, my hours got increased at work, and I was finishing my last class for my Masters degree!! I submitted my last final exam last night at 11:45 pm and I am officially done (pending the rest of the grades being entered). I feel pretty free at this point, and I am definitely ready to get back to blogging. I have missed being able to vent on here and missed my readings and communicating with all of you.
On with the news of the week. Prissy B is learning how to study and what it is like to put forth some effort on her schoolwork. She has always been so far ahead that everything came easy, and now it comes easy, but she is having to put forth the effort to slow down and take her time with what she is doing. She seems to be loving the things that she is involved in right now, though, and I can't wait for the first time she will get to ring handbells in church. It is hard for me to fathom that she will be starting our youth program at church in just 4 years. She is getting so big and looking more and more grown up every day. Fireboy B is having a blast at school. He loves all that he is getting to do, and has been so excited about getting to start choir at church. He seems to be enjoying all that he is doing right now, and is coming home worn out everyday. He came home with a paper where they have been tracing letters at school the other day. He says his favorite letter is B because it is "his" letter.
Mr. B and I have just kinda been plugging along. We are getting more and more used to him being home at night, and I have a feeling it is going to be a lot harder when he leaves for trips now. We are looking at buying some land, and hopefully moving out in the country. It is definitely a process and will be a continued process for the next few years, but we are really excited about it.
The big excitement of the week actually happens tomorrow. You see, tomorrow is GAMEDAY!!! I am a University of Tennessee FANatic, and football season starts tomorrow. For me this is one of the best weeks of the year. The anticipation leading up to kickoff at 6:00 pm tomorrow is as big, if not bigger, for me than a kid leading up to opening their Christmas presents. If you have never been to a UT game, then here is gameday in 5 minutes. http://kiwi6.com/file/zbrqbi10y8?autostart
That is all I have for today. I won't be on tomorrow, I have to sing with the church choir at the funeral of a longtime choir member, and then head to Knoxville for gameday. Until then GO VOLS!!!
