No no no, not that kind of clubbing.  The golf kind of clubbing has been our most recent obsession and I was given brand spanking new golf clubs for my birthday!  Yippee, it is so fun to find things we can learn and enjoy together.  So if anyone out there needs some golf partners we are just waiting for your call....

This is why I teach...

I was going through stuff at school today trying to get ready for the end of the year and I found this note, it is acutally pretty big (2 ftX 3ft.) This was probably one of my very first days teaching and this is a Kindergarten class who was a bit rowdy.  They lined up to leave and the teacher had them all say "Sorry, Mrs. Davis..."  but then three of them came back an hour later and handed me this giant note.  They looked so cute and sincerely sorry, and the teacher smiled and said... "this just took us an hour..."  It was so endearing, and absolutely adorable!  I just had to post it.  So this is one of the reasons I teach... you never know what might happen and the kids are so funny... I laugh every day.

Cutie Pies!

 We got to babysit baby Elliot today he is such a cutie patootie.  Ralph was making faces and he would try to make the same face back, awww he was so cute.  It is always so fun to see how, especially if you don't have kids yet, how your husband acts around kids, Ralph is a natural. I also had to show our niece Lizzie's birthday present to her uncle Ralphy, first of all as a teacher I have to acknowledge how good her handwriting is, seriously, way to go Lizzie!  And the best part is the paper tube is the gift it is a telescope she made him.  I don't know why but I think that is one of the coolest presents Ralph got, she made it herself, and I can just imagine her thinking he would have fun with it.  We love all our nephews and niece we are so glad they are in our lives.

May is Birthday Month!!!

Most of my loyal blog readers are my family so too bad if you are sick of the birthday shout out's most of my family was born in May and a lot of it in the first week, so here is the B-day shout out to Kelly and Eric.  I can't believe this is the only picture I have of Eric but I love it, it's one of those timeless and beautiful pictures where every sibling in your family thinks it is them or at least wants it to be, but nope, it is Eric.  Shucks.  Eric is an awesome brother and he and his wife Maere have set a pretty high standard in producing a beautiful boy and in raising him, lets hope the rest of the siblings can take a cue... honestly though, I've loved seeing him become a father it really suits him and you can tell he loves it! Happy Birthday Eric I love you!
Kelly is the one making the most incredible face I've ever seen her make and let me tell you she has some good ones.  Kelly is... well... just look at her... she is funny, and creative, and beautiful, and is stubborn sometimes about some really funny things.  I specifically remember the moment she stopped doing everything I told her to... aww come on you know how older sisters are and I was like twelve... anyway, she just said no...walked away, and she has never looked back since.  Kelly likes doing her own things, her own way, with her own style and I love that about her.  Happy Birthday Kelly, I love you!
