The latest.....

It seems like it's been a while since I've posted an update so it might be time to do that. Actually, though, there's really no a whole lot going on right now. My job is pretty much the same. I work days now except for Friday and Saturday nights. I really like this schedule because it allows me to spend almost every evening with the girls. And every other weekend Ryann is with her dad anyway so she wouldn't be home even if I weren't working. The job is good.....a little monotonous at times....but I supposed everyone's job is like that.

Ryann is doing extremely well in school. I spoke to her teacher just this morning about her progress. Mrs. West told me that she's been VERY impressed with how smart Ryann is. It's actually shocked her a little bit how advanced she is compared to the other kids in her class. I told her that I knew she was very smart but sometimes I wonder if it's just me being biased since she IS my child. She said that it was definitely NOT me being biased. Ryann's very intelligent. So, I'm a beaming mommy today!!! : )

Kamri is FINALLY back home. It was absolute hell trying to get her here......but I guess what's most important is that she's here. And we're all SO happy to have her back. She got to do a lot of fun stuff while she was gone but says that she's very excited to be back home. She missed her sister a lot. And she and I have been enjoying our one-on-one time today. Lots of hugs and kisses!!!!!!

Other than that I can't really think of anything else that's going on. I'm starting to look forward to the holidays and try to make some plans. Haven't started my Christmas shopping yet which, in my family, means I'm behind schedule!!!! LOL Guess I'll start working on that soon.

Hope everyone is doing well. Love from all of us to you!!

Texas A&M 17, Miami 34

Kyle Wright, QB for the Miami Hurricanes threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns to lead Miami to a 34-17 win over No. 20 Texas A&M tonight. It was definitely a disappointing game to all Aggie fans. And if anyone watched the same game I did this evening, can I get an answer please.........Where were the Ags???? It seemed like they didn't even show up for this game. They were slow, clumsy, and seemed uninterested!!!! As a true Aggie, I'll always be here to support my guys...but I have to say, this season isn't going to get easier. So, I think they have a lot to work on before meeting up with the Big 12.

Gig Em and God Bless!

Texas A&M 54, Louisiana - Monroe 14

Well, the guys did a much better job this week at outscoring the opponents. However, I have to ask one point does it stop being a game and start being simply a massacre?????
Regardless, TAMU fans all over are proud of our boys for bringing home yet another victory. Next up......Miami.
Gig Em and God Bless!!

Texas A&M 49, Fresno State 47

It was an emotional day for all Aggies.....elation, fear, happiness, and a feeling that to me felt a little like a coronary. But, TAMU finally pulled it out in TRIPLE OVERTIME!!! I swear, by the end of the game I was so frustrated that I didn't even want to watch anymore!! Good thing the game ended when it did, I guess.

Regardless, the Ags are still undefeated this season and I sure hope their winning streak continues for several weeks to come!

Gig Em and God Bless


2007 School Year

I can't believe that it's actually happened, but Ryann started kindergarten on August 27, 2007. She goes to Travis Elementary, a part of the Greenville Independent School District.

Her teacher is Mrs. West. And she really likes going to school. The goal for kids in kindergarten is to learn how to read by the end of the school year. Ryann's already got a really good start on that. She's been able to identify her own name and several family member's names for quite some time. And she can even spell and write those names. I'm so proud of her!!!
We'll keep you updated with changes and interesting news this year.
