Weekend fun

I just love my weekends with Madeley! Here are a few pictures from this weekend...

Early morning coloring. Of course she's flashing that beautiful smile!

Ice cream sundae

Nighttime play date with friends

During their bath, Madeley grabbed Dalton's behind and said "booty booty booty!" Rebekah and I laughed and I thought... oh dear!

In this picture, she had just stolen Jessica's phone and had no intentions of giving it back.

We spent a lot of time outside Dad's house tonight. Madeley was wearing only socks, I don't even know why I didn't put shoes on her. By the time we got into the car, she had blown a hole in the toe of her sock. And let me tell you, that just sends her over the edge. It's all she thinks about or talks about for an hour after she realizes the hole is there. We had tons of fun though!

Sometimes I miss being in school. I absolutely love the feeling of success... receiving a 98 on a research paper, finishing an extremely hard math problem, or memorizing some crazy facts (that I probably don't remember now). I just LOVE doing well! In teaching school, my success is only seen in the successes of my students. I truly don't feel successful unless the kids are trying hard, passing tests, and are proud of themselves. I saw some of that today, and it was wonderful! Students that have previously made F's are making A's... it's like nothing I've ever seen. I guess this is the reason why we teach. Right teachers?

Back to the back to school discussion, I miss it. When I was in high school, I liked the subjects in which I performed well. I did not like to read though, so I didn't like history and I somewhat liked English. Now, I could talk about books all day and so much of history interests me! It makes me wish I could go back to these classes and pay attention. Maybe one day I can get my masters. I've always thought about it, but it's a big commitment. We'll see.


Derrick and I really enjoy The X Factor. There are lots of contestants we have enjoyed watching. I don't even think I could pick a favorite right now... except I did LOVE the Bobby Brown performance by Marcus Canty last night! Good stuff!


I love these pajamas Barbie got Madeley for her birthday...

They say "All I need is love and hot cocoa!" So cute!
