I thought I’d back up and share a little about the past few days.

It’s all about testing at school…….

Our school’s testing theme is  “Topping The Charts,” so we’re decorating our doors with music themes.  This is my classroom door. 🙂  Thank you, Lela and Brittany, for helping me!! We’re working on summarizing this week in reading class. Today we did a “Get the GIST” activity where the kids had to choose an article and determine the “who,what, when, where, why, and how?”

Yesterday after school I took Olivia and her two friends, Sarah….

and Cameron…..to KCU for dinner.  We did our weekly after-school Bible study on the book The Me I Want to Be: Teen Edition.   The girls summarized each of their lives into a coat of arms showing things about them that God could use…Olivia was too tired to be photographed (I thought it was because she had taken an allergy pill that causes drowsiness).  She’s had such a rough spring, missing school several days already in the last two months.  Later, I realized she had a fever.  🙁

Have I mentioned lately that I won’t be running for Mom of the Year?

Now we know that Olivia has a double ear infection and her lungs are not great either, so she’s on an antibiotic, taking cough medicine regularly, and using an inhaler three times a day. 040711005

This was dinner tonight.


As Olivia and I are cuddled up on the couch this evening, Friday night is sounding really good to both of us………..

Thanks for praying for her.

There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.

Eccl. 3:1

In the midst of all the the other things going on in life, I am looking forward to a time of healing for Olivia,
