Today we were playing with fake tattoos. Rachel was putting them on Lance's back and arm. She found a heart and wanted one like mine. She has a lightning bolt on her arm since she is "Bolt". You need to check out Lance's Blog to see her putting them on him.

Lance brought home Rachel's birthday present last night, and we are HORRIBLE at keeping presents hidden. So, it was so nice today that we went ahead and gave her the present we got her. It is a Cadillac Escalade. We went for a drive, and she is getting better. She loved it! It goes pretty fast. I had to jog to keep up a few times!!

I came home at 6AM and showered, dried my hair, and went to bed by 6:30. I got up at 12:30PM. After being up a few hours, I just couldn't take it anymore, and I just made a bed on the couch and was in and out of sleep ALL DAY!!! Thanks to MeeMee and Poppy for keeping Rachel while I slept and Lance played poker!!!

I was on the Jacksboro Elementary Relay For Life team and decided to stay from 6PM to 6AM. It was fun, yet exhausting. 2 of my students put me in jail (paid $10 to do it too). I took $9 with me to eat on and had already spent $6 to eat, so I was in for the long hall since it cost $10 to get out. 2 of my other students came and rescued me not 5 minutes later. I had 2 students from last year and my team members come too, so I knew I had back up to get me out later. It was a fun night, and Jack Co. raised $114,000 for cancer research.

Today we heard the fire alarm go off, and since we were supposed to have a fire drill yesterday, we all just went on as usual. Then we heard the announcement that this was not a drill, so the kids walked a bit faster. After being outside for about 5 minutes we had the kids sit down, because they were getting tired of standing. Finally, we were able to go inside, and found out it was just a false alarm. Thank goodness. It was my first official fire escape.

Last year I had at least 6 hummingbirds that LOVED my feeder. It was awesome to have them with us everyday. They even got so used to me filling the feeder ( I had to do it about twice a week) that they would swarm me when I was hanging it back up. So, over Spring Break I hung it out again for the summer, and this is the wonderful view that I have had the last few days. I took this early this morning while he was trying to be just like the other birds all getting breakfast out of the bird feeder. He kept flying from the food to a chair and perching there just like them.

Today was Mrs. Bumpas' birthday. In keeping with 4th grade tradition, we let her choose what she wanted for lunch. Thank goodness she chose the BEST hamburger that I have ever eaten. If you know me at all, you know I have lived in MANY different towns, and had lots of burgers. These are WONDERFUL!!!! If you ever make it to Jacksboro, TX; TUES.-SAT. before 4, you should have one!!!
