Good times in SUMMER oh ten!! :-)

Wow!!! Where do I even begin! Summer 2010 has begun with a bang!! :-) Let's start with this.... enjoy

LOML and I headed up that day to his parents, LOML is in a golf tournament each year. They did a great job! LOML always picks a prize for me, and this year I got a really neat gift, considering last year's gift. :-) Sorry there is no pictures my camera has been acting up. We came back Saturday night, went to church Sunday and after church packed up and went down Raccoon River, which now after all the rain is flooded.

This week I attended a conference and even though it wasn't directly in STL, it was close enough. :-) I had a really great time and got to meet up with my parents!!! WE LOVE them!! :-)

I also enjoyed this little tad bit, that made me think about education in a little different way. This is a classic clip and try to relate it to education. What do LUCY and Ethel represent, what does the chocolate, conveyor belt, supervisor, and wrappers represent???

Do you see it as NCLB with the chocolate being students and the wrapper being the curriculum, Lucy and Ethel being the teachers and the supervisor being the administration. Some students slip though the cracks but the curriculum just keeps getting faster and faster??

I got back late last, and am now finally ready for our summer to start if we can just keep the rain away and sun out we could get outside, but we are starting to get little tomatoes!! ;-)

LOML and I are reading through this book called "CRAZY LOVE" my parents gave us and just watched this video that just totally opens your eyes to how BIG our God is, and how small we are!! :-)

Matthew 22: 37-40~ "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. " This is the first and greatest commandment. and the second is like it: "Love your neighbor as yourself."

Life is G double "O" D Good !! :-)
