Who are those firefighters?

I love a walking field trip!  The Williston community is so wonderful to open their doors to the JBES students.  On Tuesday my class headed out to the Williston Fire Department! The firefighters are so great with the children.  They want the students to understand what the firefighters look like and will sound like if they were to have one saving them in a house fire.  The guy was such a great sport, putting all his gear on and then letting the child come up and check him out!

Then it really got interesting. Mrs. Inman and I were asked to put on the firefighter gear so that they could spray us!  I said what?  It was something I will never forget and neither will the children.

Couponing Much?

I have been trying to keep up with coupons, but it can be super time consuming.  While on the south beach diet most things we needed to be buying and be eating were not coupon worthy, so I got a bit behind.  I spent a Sunday afternoon/evening a few weeks back getting cleaned out, searching and cutting up several booklets. 


I am now back on track and trying to get back to saving.  I have found the time to be worth it most of the time.  Any luck with couponing?

Oh Lily…

For those that have  a cat you know the insane sound they make when they spot a bug.  One afternoon she found a target and had us laughing.  She wanted that moth, but he was a smart one and never moved before she got bored. 



Lily’s target or you could say toy…haha


It’s like she was saying “what?”

Happy Monday!!

Our Life in Pictures

I was looking through our camera today and thought I haven’t blogged in forever and I have so many random pictures!  I began to think…WHERE DO I BEGIN?  I am just going to start at the first bunch of pictures and go from there. 

Sadie and my families dog, Bootsie met for the first time in August!  Sadie is not a dog who does well with other dogs but she survived and there was never any blood. 



I got to visit with my Granddaddy and Grandmommy while in Tampa!  It was a great visit and makes me wish I could get to Tampa more often.  DSC_0137

Fantasy Football began but Lily was less than thrilled.  She sat on Adam’s fantasy football magazine.  He just informed me as I was typing this that his team is going down hill!  Maybe next year hunny :)


Willie turned 1 and we were not able to go to his party, so we made a home visit!  Uncle Adam enjoyed reading his new books with him.  I can’t believe he is a year old.


This little gator guy turned 1 also!  I get to teach with his mom,  Heather everyday.  I have enjoyed watching her two little ones grow up.  We couldn’t miss his Tennessee gator football party.  We also enjoyed seeing their house decked out in orange and blue since his Dad is a die hard Georgia fan.  


Gator football began!  Adam and the farm crew made the HAY GATOR.

AB’s the GATORS #1 cheerleader!

DSC_0378  More teacher friends cheering on the Gators…seriously how come they can’t get it together with these gorgeous women cheering for them.  



I know these are random moments in our life, but they have kept us busy.  I hope you all have a wonderful week!
