Susan G Komen Race

In October we participated in the 5k Race for the Cure in Birmingham. It was a neat experience. So many people just walked so you didn't feel bad for being in the shape you were but I tried to walk/jog/run all through the race. I didn't think I did too bad. It was fun except that Ben beat me by 3 minutes:( and I didn't even see him pass me!

My class- 1st and 2nd grade activities

I have a great class this year. I only have a little class but I love them.
An aunt volunteered to do a fall art class.
They painted leaves on t-shirts. They loved it.
Having fun blowing bubbles, Wilson-1st grade, Joel, Randi, Devin, and Olivia- 2nd grade!

Grandparent's Day, doing crossword puzzles together
This is everything they told me about their grandparents! click on it to see closer! Pretty cute!
Deputy Smith came for Grandparent's Day.
Here he is testing out the handcuffs!
Prayer at the Pole!
We went to Stevi B's Pizza for our field trip. We joined 3rd and 4th grade.
It was a real neat experience. We got to walk in the back where they make dough, let it rise in the cooler and then watch them roll it in a special machine. They then went and finished their own pizza with toppings of their choice. They thought it was such a blast and I did too!
My kids -in yellow- with the pizzas they made!
A dental hygienist came and talked to us about taking care of your teeth. She even brought her friend, the snake and showed us he brushes!

Battle at Tunnel Hill, GA

In Septemeber we went to Tunnel Hill, GA. We love this reenactment. It was the first one that we ever participated in. We enjoyed it as well as the boys that went along with us.
Two cute guys!!!
Our company!The younger boys went out to the house for the battle.
They were able to watch it up close and personal.

After the battle. This was Jorden Messner's first reenactment that he was a soldier in.
He enjoyed it!
The boys 'camping out' under the fly.
Note they started the night up by the chair and slowly slid down the hill!

The electric went in the whole city of Tarrant, so we had service by generator, running a few lamps and a few window units for air conditioning! Making memories, having church in our basement.

We also had the dedication service for little Madelyn Rose
It was a very precious service

Here is part of the decorations in the church for the dedication
I like how they used my quilt, very pretty

Celebrating Leonard's birthday was a 'smashing' success!!
