Some good friends and I went to see Drivin n Cryin this weekend. They were actually playing in McDonough. We had gotten a VIP table which we thought would be really close to the stage... but now we know for next year. But it was a great time, outside listening to music and just being with friends.... We were laughing at the fact that we were some of the youngest folks there... but they still put on a great show...

Trent was so excited to be awarded with the A-B Honor Roll. He worked really hard this year to maintain this achievement. I'm sooo glad our first year of middle school is almost over. He had a great year!

A jester, joker, jokester, fool, wit-cracker, or prankster was a person employed to tell jokes and provide general entertainment, typically for a European monarch. Jesters are thought to have typically worn brightly coloured clothes and eccentric hats in a motley pattern. Their hats were especially distinctive; often made of cloth, they were floppy with three points, each of which had a jingle bell at the end. The three points of the hat represent donkey's ears and nose and tail worn by jesters in earlier times. Other things distinctive about the jester were his laughter and his mock sceptre, known as a "bauble" or marotte.
Alyssa's Sage class is studying Medieval Times. They had a royal feast to celebrate the end of the term. Alyssa was a jester... she was so cute providing the entertainment....
A friend of mine, Amanda, won tickets to the premiere of What to Expect When Your Expecting... She was awesome enough to ask me to go. She knew that I had filmed on this movie last summer. We made our way up to Phipps... It was so exciting because you can actually see me!! I'm on the left of the screen near the end of the movie..... It's a scene with Carmen Diaz... Finally a good screen shot!

It's been an amazing 3 years with no injuries... but her streak as ended. I got "the call" yesterday from lovely Ms. Dooley, our school nurse. While playing Tug Of War in PE Alyssa had fallen and her ankle was hurt. I didn't really believe that she was all that hurt because she had been going through the "I don't want to go to school today..." thing almost every morning. But low and behold.... here we are...
