*I'm having a 'big' birthday this year, as is my daughter. So we decided to take an all girls trip to Las Vegas. My Mom, sister Lori, and both daughters, Lynsi and Lacy are going. We are going during spring break. None of them have ever been there, so it will be quite a site. My Mother is very excited about it. When I was in Amarillo Tues. night, she had me to buy her some luggage for her trip. I told her not to pack just yet!

*I'm still a graduate student doing my practicum this semester. I had to have a supervisor that was an experienced counselor so I asked Liz Jones. She said she would do it. She has been a big help to me during my first year as a counselor. There is so much to know that they don't teach you in school. I've had to learn on my own mostly, with calls to Liz for help. I hope to graduate in May, but it may be August.

*Lacy is getting married in Sept. She first set the date to July, but decided that didn't give her enough time to plan. She is very organized and obsessed with everything being perfect. It's going to be a stressful time as well as a fun time planning this wedding with her. My family has never had a big wedding before, so it will be fun. She cannot wait to get married and to move back to Dallas. She likes the city.

*I'm having our financial aid workshop here in Chillicothe tonight. We only have 10 seniors, but I think they are all going to college. Most of them to Jr. College, but that's still a good place to start. I think kids from small schools should start that way, at least for the first year. I have to go now and get ready for the workshop.

Christmas 2007

Time Flies

I found this picture of my 4 grandkids in a scrapbook that my grandmother had made for me. It's so cute. I wish they were still this small. They are growing up too fast.Lynsi's 3 live in Quanah. Ethan is 10 and a very good athlete. He scored all the points that his team made last night in his basketball league in Vernon.He sold the most raffle tickets and won a dvd player. He was very excited. He is also on a tournament team in Quanah. Erick is 8 and he loves spy gear. He got a lot of gadgets for Christmas and is always spying on us and leaving gadgets hidden that start beeping when we walk by. He loves doing that. Erynn is 7 and is a talker. She talks all the time. Her T-pa calls her motormouth and she doesn't like it. She is into Hannah Montana and High School Musical. I think everything she got for Christmas had one of those things on it. Bailey is 8, also. She belongs to Joe and Erika and they all live here in Childress. She also loves Hannah Montana and High School Musical. She plays video games with her Dad all the time. One night during the holidays, they stayed up until 5:00 in the morning playing games. She sings at church and in public. She is a member of the Togetherettes. I guess that's all for now. Maybe I'll get the hang of this blogging thing and do it more often.
