First Day of School

I can't believe my sweet Aubrey is in Kindergarten!! I am so excited for! Her first week went great and she acted like she has been going to school for years.  Rebekah is still going to preschool and this will be her first time not having her older sis with her all day.  I think it's going to be great for both of them.  It was my first day as well! I am really excited about this school year. I have huge classes, but he kids seem really great.  Also this year I am teaching a journalism class - finally using my degree!! Ha Ha!! Rolland starts school in about a week so all of us will be in school (I am getting a second degree).  He thinks he is going to change his degree to Tourism / Hospitality Management.  He would be perfect at that! I am really excited for this year's opportunities for all of us!

Fun With My Girls' Hair

Before I was a working woman I used to do a bunch of crazy stuff with my girl's hair.  I love making "art" of their hair-dos.  But then work started and I resulted back to the boring stuff.  So as we gear up to start another school year my goal is to bring some of that creativity back.  I wish I could take the credit for all the fantastic hair ideas, but I can't, there are some amazing bloggers out there dedicated to making little girls look FABULOUS!!!  There are a bunch of links on the right if you are interested.  Hope you enjoy some pics of a fun summer day and a couple of cute girlie hair-dos!
