We went to the Wilderness at the Smokies resort on Sat and came home on Sunday night with some friends. We had a great time. The kids were so worn out they almost fell asleep before we got home. The room was super nice and the water park was awesome.

Snow Days

Well contrary to what a lot of people(who are not teachers) are saying about Sullivan County being out of school. I for one am very excited. We need these days every once in a while. For starters the stomach bug is running crazy, even at our house, Meredith had it over the weekend. This will at least give some time for that to settle down, I hope. These days are great for teachers because I don't have the luxury of having all my laundry caught up, house picked up and supper started before 4:00. So I have to say I am glad to have a little time to just sit and not be on a schedule. I do like this in January and February but after that I am ready to get it over with and get to May. These snow days are one of the only perks us teachers get so we definitely enjoy them.
Other things we have going on right now is baseball sign ups this weekend. We are all excited about that. Even Meredith said yesterday I can't wait for Parker's baseball to start I like it much better that football. It may have a little something to do with Amanda being there. Meredith is taking ballet and tap and loving it and can't wait for her recital in May.
Also Lorie is in the hospital for a severe kidney infection and is expected to be there until about Thursday, so please keep her in your prayers. We are all juggling everything around to try to keep Mylie and Carter on their routine. Well now we just wait for the snow.

Vacation Plans

Well we made vacation plans for this summer and much to our surprise, we had not planned on this, we are going back to Disney World. The one different thing this time is that we are staying at Coranado Springs in Disney World. We have not stayed here before. We are very excited. This is a picture from the water side of the resort.

January is here.

Well we are back in the swing of things and back at school. But we can always hope and pray for snow days. To catch up a little Parker had a great time at baseball camp at UT, he must have hit a thousand balls in those two days. It was great getting together with our baseball friends which we are about to start seeing more of. Baseball registration in in Feb. Meredith started back to dance classes and loves it. She is taking ballet and tap. We have also made the move from a van to an SUV this month and happen to love our new Explorer. Well hopefully we will get some snow to play in and have some great pictures to post.
