A visit from Mrs. Jennifer

Enjoyed our visit from Mrs. Jennifer today! She stayed and read a book to the children. She should be back within two weeks! Praying for a speedy recovery.

Fire Safety

The children had a blast when Mr. Robert  (Noah's Dad) brought the firetruck, and other special firefighting vehicles to the school. The loved when the other firefighters sprayed water and foam. They loved hearing the siren. They really learned a lot about fire safety this week and had fun learning too! Thank You Mr. Robert!!!!! Pictures comming soon!

Pumpkin Patch Fun!

Had a great time at the Pumpkin Patch!  Look at the Little ones dressed in their school shirts- so sweet!  More Pictures to be posted later. I love Fall and loved looking at the beautiful fall colors. Humbled that God created it all for us to enjoy.
So proud of Tracer! All A's on his report card! Way to go Tra!

Our adopted cat - Addy- enjoying the fall decor
My front porch fall decorating- So much that I need to do, like paint the concrete floor and door, and hang up my vintage sign but who has the time. Please don't notice the pink Easter bunny left behind from Easter /Spring decorating by the front door. Ha!
Had a great time this weekend in Washington, Louisiana, enjoyed the Antique stores and flea markets, having lunch with my hubby at the School House Cafe, loved the Queen Bee seasoning, and the beautiful old oak tree at a Plantation home.

Had a wonderful time this weekend! The weather was absolutely perfect! It is a rare treat for my husband and I to have a day to ourselves much less a weekend- so this weekend was extra special to me! We went to Washington and visited all those wonderful Flea markets and Antique Stores. They also have a great Bed and Breakfast.  My favorite place was the the Antique School House and Gym. Two floors of  stuff!!!!!  I picked up some great items at great prices! I love a good deal. We ate at the Old School House Cafe and wrote our names on the wall. Perfect thing to do for a Pre-K teacher! We also met Taylor for cheesecake and sweet tea. It was so nice to see our baby girl again. She showed us her pictures of her "friend", I don't think Daddy Gerald liked that very much! Ha! She is a very sweet girl and makes good grades. She is very involved in church activities and missionary  work. She has a trip planned in January for Missionary work.

The weather was perfect for our trip to the pumpkin patch! We had a great time! The children enjoyed playing at Kiroli and we adults enjoyed our selves as well.  Pictures will be posted soon. I hope the weather is pretty this weekend. We plan on taking a little trip to some flea markets and  hope I come home with some really neat things. Looking for an old map for the Living room. It has to have a certain vintage look and while I found a few - none of them have that coffee stained look I'm wanting. Oh well- that's part of the fun of going to flea markets- not knowing what you will find!
Hope all of you have a great weekend and hoping a few little ones that are under the weather feel better really soon! (Kelly-Jo, Rhett, Ethan, and Gracie)  Also, this year we have decided to skip the 50 days of school celebration that Pre-K and K usually have. K has deceided to do their community helper day and Pre-K has a Teddy Bear Picnic in the works. I hope the weather continues to be as beautiful as it has been lately so we can host it outside.

Mrs. Donna & Tracer
Our family
The Boys!
Tyler, Jake, Tracer, and Colter

So proud of Tracer! He killed a 6 point on Saturday's Youth hunt and then Monday was inducted into OBCA Honor Society!

Book Character Pumpkins

How adorable! These turned out way better than I imagined. They are currently on display at the Library downtown. They are all so adorable and the children are enjoying when I read "their" book at storytime!

This is something that those of us who care for children should think about. I was so happy to see that all the drawings had a smile on their face!

Message to Jennifer!

Christmas Play comming up soon..........

OBCA will feature a Christmas Play in December. The Pre-K class will ALL be in the play and they will be all be mice.

I will send home the list of items and how your child should dress for the play soon. ALL items must be ready by December 3rd.

Pumpkins on display at local Library.

Character Pumpkins are on display at the library downtown! Go by and take a look and see. They are adorable. The ladies at the library loved them and loved the fact that the children and their parents read a book together first before making the pumpkins.  Pictures soon!

Weekend news

What a very busy weekend! Fun but busy! Was able to talk to Mrs. Jennifer. She is doing better and appreciates the continued prayers for her. We are going to do something special for her as a class. Throwing around a few ideas let me know if you have a suggestion. She hopes to be out of the hospital by Thursday but looking at a recovery period of several weeks. I miss her extra help- Yes I do!!!!  God is good! He is always faithful. Like I was telling her, we don't always understand why things happen but God knows. I told her that now she has an awesome, awesome testimony about God's love.   Art & Folk festival was this weekend, but I didn't go, Tracer had to work the 4-H booth and I went to several yard sales. Picked up a cloth Nativity Set with a complete backdrop for the kiddos for $ 1.00! Found an old grain bin scoop for 50 cents, a wooden reindeer for the front porch (Christmas) for $1.00 and a complete set of wooden ABC/occupation blocks for the classroom for $5!  I  love finding a good deal! Tracer and Gerald went hunting Saturday morning for the youth hunt. He was only out in the woods for around 45 min. when he shot a 6 point. He was so excited! We were all excited for him!  I also helped make Hello Kitty cupcakes for Riley's birthday party and enjoyed church services this weekend.

The children had so much fun bringing in tools from home for Letter T day! They each told about their tools and passed the tools around so the other children could see. They loved being the center of attention! We learned about flat head and phillips head screwdrivers,all about levels,  how a hammer works and more.
