Random thoughts

I haven't posted in a while but nothing much is up. Here are some random thoughts.

VB update: We are now 9-1. Team that beat us had 2 jump-servers and they were very good. We are now preparing for the finals next week. Still having a great time.

Thoughts from Colorado: GO BRONCOS! Yep. 3-0. Rock on.
All over the news lately has been the reports about man living in Denver who is a suspected terrorist who bought supplies to make a bomb or something at various beauty supply stores. Crazy.

Thoughts about School-Health: H1N1 seems to be hitting everywhere in CO lately. I have been washing my hands after every class lately just to be safe. I heard on the radio that when any sickness comes the people most likely to get sick are: #1 People that work with kids, and #2 People that work with computers. As a Technology teacher...and a computer lab full of kids...I am probably prone to get sick.

Thoughts about school-Money:
There are all kinds of ways to give money to the school you support. Even if you don't have kids in school-support a school! In this economy schools need all the money they can get. Even though I am a teacher, I didn't really do anything extra until my sister told me to start saving Box Tops for Education. Now I save Tyson Chicken bag tops, Campbell's soup labels, Box Tops for Education, and I entered my Safeway receipt online (this promotion goes until Oct. 13 and details are HERE) and got $10.38 for my school. Please save these things and turn them to the office of whatever school you support:)

Other than that...fall just blew in! Time for Pumpkin, coats, and crazy costumes.

Go Broncos! Win #1

In honor of the Broncos victory today I made cupcakes.

I made a Bears one for my nieghbor. In some of these other ones I got bored...then I ran out of green M&Ms. Oh well.

If you want to see really funny cakes check out

We also had a church get together yesterday.
I love how the card is flying in this picture.

Hanging out with our Neice and Nephew

We spent a few days over labor day weekend hanging out with John's family.
Sunday afternoon we hung out in the backyard:

JT Swam,

John and Cherry took a nap on a blanket,

and Davina and I clipped coupons.
We even got JT into couponing:)

We went to the playground,

Played Drums,

and did a puppet show with a cloth puppet theatre I got for $1 at a garage sale.

Thanks for stopping by!

Oh for fun!

On Monday we hung out at Jack and Cherry's.

Camille tried to give John lots of "raspberries" on his stomach.

And this is what Davina gets for taking this picture of herself on our camera....

Like Mother...

Like Daughter:)

We had a blast hanging out. Come back again!

Mud VB tourney

I was a part of the Firebirds- a mud vb team made up of a bunch of teachers and people associated with our school.
It was kind of cold this morning.

We lost our first game (in a double elimination tourney) but we came back and won a LOT more to get 5th place (out of 30 teams)!

I had to leave early to go to a wedding:( I showered and got ready in 15 min. and did my makeup while John was driving! Thanks for playing with me guys!

Hip Hip Hooray!

My VB team (the Middle School "A" team at the school I teach at) is 4-0! We won 4 games in a row. This is pretty awesome for our school (we have always been small and not that good).
I am the main coach of the A team, but I coach with another amazing coach who is also my friend (and used to be a college coach). We are having a lot of fun this season and the hours are so much better than coaching HS.
