What the back?!?

Some of you have been asking how I've been doing since my car accident, with my back and the babies... Last night I ended the night just about crawling around, my back hurt so bad. So I got up this morning and went to work as usual right? Wrong! I made it through 1st period with my class, but before 2nd period started I went to fill up my water bottle (which is only 2 doors down) and I couldn't make it back to my classroom! I was hanging onto the wall hoping not to fall over. Luckily someone from the office came rushing out to see if I was OK. When the tears started to well up in my eyes, she said she would call for a substitute to come in and take my classes the rest of the day. My sweet kids were very concerned and kept asking if the babies were OK. One of the boys said he would carry my purse out to my car, while another student was my crutch. They are such a great group of kids and I am going to miss them! So there's the update on my back! Hopefully it will get better in stead of worse.

Here are a few of my sweet students (ahhh Jr. High - you've gotta love it!)

Love the weather!

This week has been great! Yes, there were a couple of rainy days, but the weather really has been nice. That is the one thing that I really love about spring. I can finally just sit in the backyard and relax without freezing to death. Ella had her first encounter this week with a worm.

First the discovery of the worm, then the taste test!

We did a lot this week, we went to TJ's baseball game (where of course they won)

We also went to TJ's big race where he took first place in Jr.'s and 11th place in CAT 4 Yea TJ!!!Now some GREAT family news! John has recently applied for the FBI and made it through the first round of testing. He is so amazing! I am so blessed to have married such a wonderful man. Even if he doesn't get the job, I am so proud of him for following his dreams!
