this bad boy is going to be sooooo much fun during our professional development days
do I dare live by the pen... 

OK my fam is OBSESSED!!!
whenever we make a short trip to New Braunfels
we have to stop at 2Tarts Bakery...
they have the cutest cookies and all
and I mean
ALL of the other goodies are YUMMY too

Thursday was a surprise... Bub and I went to my parents house to hang out and they invited us to the WNBA basketball game...
It was kid day and so there was all kinds of schtuff geared towards rowdy rugrats...
bub had a great time

After the game my mom and a few other breast cancer survivors were invited to help paint a court PINK...
for the upcoming breast cancer awareness game
Bub got to help his Mia...
It was bitter sweet to have her paint this court...
I kinda wish she never had the qualifications to even be considered to paint it... know what I mean
BUT my mom proudly has battle scars from that part of her life and gosh darn it... PAINT AWAY MOM PAINT AWAY

went to this yesterday.... it was a great test of my OCD germ phobia
and let's just say I almost ran out of my hanitizer... (are my kids the only ones that say it like this?)

got some learning in there too... these are silhouettes of the smallest and tallest humans

in the ambulance working on his dad-oh... Hubs was a good sport until Bub
decided to test his reflexes... HA HA
of course we got our geek on in the space section

and my future DR... was practicing on a giant...
OPERATION... pretty cool

and this was the last thing we did...
Bub stood on a scale and typed in some other info about himself and this thing
calculates his bone mass, fat, blood, muscle. and organ weight and then displays them in those tubes...
the blue one was the most... it was organ mass
and of course my tiny hiney kiddo... had the smallest amount in the yellow (fat)
it looks like a lot... BUT there is hardly any in there... PROMISE... it is stained
and it is stained way to the top... HMMM any inferences here???
if you are wondering who that other kid is... we are too 

sooooo none of these are school related... well  maybe the flashcards and pen were BUT not really *wink*
well because I can't get into my room WHAAAAAA 
my room was last to be cleaned and waxed
and I haven't really been doing much school stuff... denial maybe!!!

I am going to start on a stool make over
and a back to school goodie
and a meet the teacher goodie
BUT that is for Monday...



  1. You have had a fun summer. I just love all of the fun pictures and that pen would be great for PLC meetings and PD. I need it. Bubs is a doll. Were you brave enough to step on that machine. I would have died!!!!I would have blown the yellow off the tube. How has your walking been this summer? You know you have inspired me to exercise.

    Thanks for linking up. I can't wait for August Currently.

    1. my walking has been nonexistent... I have been able to maintain my wt at -45 pounds BUT I need to kick it back into gear and get walking again!!! I want to be at -85 so if I could get there... that would be a dream come true!!! thanks for the reply... and your message had made me put this walking thing back on my list to do... thanks!!!!

  2. I love the pen!!! Where do you find one??? It would be so fun to use at meetings. Love all the picts. Thanks for sharing.


  3. Hey Farley,
    I just started following you on IG. . . did you know there is someone called farleyfarleyfarleyfarley? That's so weird!
    I love reading your stories about your family.
    Second In Line

  4. Those flash cards look cool. Where did you find them?

  5. That is so cool that he got to help your mom paint the floor! I have a parent that is a cancer survivor...may they both have many, many, many more years cancer free!

    Flamingos and Butterflies

  6. I SO want those vocab cards!!!

  7. I LOVE the flashcards! I picked some up back April and used them in my room at the end of the year! :) So much fun!!

  8. I love the NB Children's Museum! It's so much nicer than it was when I went there as a kid...sigh. And 2Tarts - yum! Looks like y'all had a great NB day! If you're a bbq fan, try out Granzin's when you're in town sometime. It's delish! Sweet tea and a turkey sandwich would be up there in my top meals of all time. :)

  9. I thought my daughter was the only one who said "hanitizer" ! So funny to hear it elsewhere. She started when she was soo little and now at 7 it is still stickin.
