Playing Catch-Up through Pictures

MS' Rugby Team played the alumni a couple of Saturdays ago.  Guess where they played?

The view on my way to work on Thursday:
You'll have to excuse the quality.  The sky was just incredibly pink; the picture doesn't do it justice at all.

New toys therapy materials!
I probably shouldn't mention this, but my intern & I haven't figured out how to play "Chuckit  Chicken" yet.  It can't be too complicated, right?

 The Small Town High School won their quarter-final game last Friday, beating the #2 team in the state 14-3.  We beat them the last week in October 55-33.  During half-time a former player who is now playing for an SEC Team was honored.  This is a picture of him (on the right) with a former high school teammate who is now his college teammate:

You'd be hard pressed to find an athlete that's received the recognition he has but is still so humbled and an all around "good guy".  There had even been some Heisman talk.

Yesterday began a 2 week stint of bus duty.  Well, really just 1 1/2 weeks since this is a short week.  Here's what I saw when I went outside for my rotation with the buses:
Again, you'll have to excuse the quality.  This one was taken with my cell phone.  Bus duty was pretty uneventful, except for the 5th Grader telling on me.  He had cut the breakfast line, so I told him and the boy that was with him to go to the back of the line.  After he told me that he had been there, and the boys who he cut verified that he hadn't, I told him to go to the back of the line.  The principal came in at the time they got to the back, and he told Mr. Principal "she told me to go to the back of the line and we were all the way up there."  Mr. Principal asked him who told him, and he said "a teacher".  Mr. Principal told him that if that's what he was told to do, he needed to do it.  HA!  Take that, little 5th grader!  :0~


  1. Good for your Mr. Principal! Fifth grade boys can be alternately frustrating and loving -- as you well know having survived 3 of your own!

    I love the photo of the players because I think that it shows, in some small way, that we really ARE starting to 'get it' in looking at people as people and not colors! Twenty years ago, these guys probably wouldn't have been roommates...there would have been too much pressure for many communities for something else.

    Have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving! May all your boys be home and may you have enough food in the house nonetheless!

  2. Ah! That 5th grader's going to make an excellent middle schooler someday. ;)

    I love your pictures. Your cell phone does a good job.

    Looks like a pretty good week.

    Happy Thanksgiving.

  3. Love that mountain sky! Happy Thanksgiving!

  4. Love that Mr. Principal defended your cause and told the boy to do what you had already said to do! Hoping you can figure out how to play that game, I'm sure once you sit down with it and play a practice round or two, it will be a piece of cake :)


  5. Oh...the dreaded bus line duty. I had an incident with an 8th grader once...he was such a little stinker. It didn't help that his mother was the rich friend of the administrator.

    Great views of your surroundings.

  6. Beautiful sky photos.
    You-1 point.

  7. LOL at you getting told on by a 5th grader. Gotta love kids.

  8. Thanks for getting us caught up.
    Can't believe the nerve of that 5th grader. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

  9. Full moon or sun?

    Love sunrise pictures and views. Makes getting up in the morning worth it!

    Have a wonderful thanksgiving!
