i don't like THOSE fish

PawPaw and Steve cleaning catfish they caught today... Macie informed us that those were NOT the fish she liked to eat. She was totally grossed out by all the guts. We had fish for dinner, but not THOSE fish... just the ones that MiMi and PawPaw caught the day before :) Thanks to Steve and PawPaw for ensuring that we will have enough food to eat this winter...

school's out... for the SUMMER!

Last day of school... Macie has had a wonderful year! She had the best teachers... Ms. Rosa and Ms. Amy - we LOVED them!! They sent her home with lots of goodies, including a sand bucket with her name on it, shovel, beach towl, and pool toys. Plus a super cute framed class picture.
Macie brought home a couple of projects she has been working on this school year. One of them was an ABC book.... so stinkin cute!!! I wish I could post a picture of each page/letter...

Here is one page from the book... pig is made out of a paper plate, water-colored by Miss Macie

They also created their own "Brown Bear" book... again, just so adorable. At the end of the book, when it gets to the part about the children, there is a picture of Macie's class, and the teachers are of course, Ms. Rosa and Ms. Amy!

Trophy Time!

Macie got a trophy today at gymnastics!
She was a little proud... can you tell??

Stucture Collapse During Practice...

Thanks to everyone who has checked on Steve... he is OK. He took a hard hit to the head, trainers sent him to the hospital for a CT scan just to be sure. A few of Steve's co-workers sustained serious injuries... please keep Greg, Rich and Joe, and their families in your prayers. I am posting a link to Dallas News... Steve is in several of the pictures.
