Brandt's 1st day of Pre-K

Brandt started Pre-K today. He was so excited, and has been asking to go everyday this week. Dustin took off this morning, and we took the other 2 kids to daycare and then took him to school. As we pulled into the parking lot, the sky let go. The administration was outside with umbrellas helping people in, but lucky me got to park the car, and I was soaked by the time I got in the building. Brandt didn't even look back, and got annoyed with all the pics we took. lol

Brandt about to go into his classroom

Brandt and mommy, both of our 1st days at Brazos Christian

I am now officially a teacher. Can you believe that? I have been doing in-service the last week and a half, but today was the 1st day with kids. My very 1st class ever was Brandt's...pretty cool! Overall, today went well. My last class of the day is high school, and I have 3 classes in 1. The yearbook kids were out of control, so they aren't going to like me come Monday when 1/2 of them are sent to the principal's office. There are 33 kids total, so we are going to have to weed out some kids, that is just way too many in 1 little class to learn anything.

I WON!!!!

One of the ladies on a bargain board I am on had a contest in July. You had to buy as many household items as possible, with as little money as possible. I finally remembered to submit mine today and I WON!!! I was excited, especially considering there are a lot of people on the board.

Anyway here is a link:

Picture Overload...

You are looking at the face of the newest Vaughn family member. Smokey still hasn't come home, but we are still praying hard for him to return. I am devestated to think he might be gone. My parents are moving to the country as soon as their house leases and are going to take our cat Cassie with them. She is a great outside cat, and is really sweet to adults, but she is not fond of our dog or our kids. lol She hasn't really hurt the kids, but I don't trust her with them either.

So now we need a name for the kitten. I know this sounds terrible, but I can tell a girl cat vs a boy cat, but it is really hard to tell in kittens. So I am not sure if it is a she or a he yet. So any great names?

There is a place in Austin the boys get their haircut, and if you do a good job they put colored gel in your hair. When my nephews were here we took them to get a hair cut, and they asked for colored gel. They didn't have any, but my mom went to Sally's and bought some. So we came home and I colored their hair.

Dustin said he is practicing to be a macaw for halloween. lol

This is Brandt with his hair colored, but we were out on the boat so the wind had blown most of it out by then.

We went with a big group to the Children's musuem in Waco. Bryson was 1st scared of this bear, but after seeing a friend get on he decided he wanted to as well. His face still looks scared, but everytime I took him down he cried and tried to climb back on.
At the children's musuem they had a cool bubble maker. You get on and pull a string and try to get the bubble over your head. The boys all really enjoyed it.
Getting closer...
Got it!!!
