Our Next Vacation

We are leaving for Myrtle Beach tonight after Parker's game. We were suppose to leave last night, but since he had a game tonight we decided to postpone it for a night and stay and play this game. We will be back on Monday night. The extra time I had today was used moving my room at school. I am going to teach first grade again but had to move my room down the hall. I will have one day when we get back from the beach to get that finished before I go back to work on Wed. next week. This is a short vacation but considering this is our 3rd this summer that isn't so bad. Our next vacation will be Labor Day weekend we are going to New York to see the Yankees play, well some of us are going to the game and some of us are going to the American Girl Doll Store. We are all real excited about that trip.

I've been given an award

This award has been passed on by several people starting with the creator My friend Tanya at has awarded it to me. This is what she wrote: Amie because when we moved back to my husband's home town eight years ago, she was the first person to reach out to us and invite us to dinner at her family's home. And she's been that warm every time I've seen her since then, which really just isn't often enough. Thanks Tanya I really appreciate it!!!!

On Saturday I had my last class for my Ed.S (educational specialist) degree. We don't actually walk until the Dec. graduation but I am finished. Even though the degree is finished in order to get my license changed to a principals license I must take a leadership test in Sept. The only thing left is a doctorate degree and I don't think I am going there. I am just so glad to have this over. So I guess I can attach all of these letters to my name now. Mrs. Mumpower BS, MA, Ed.S. It sure does make you look important. I am not quite ready to leave the classroom just yet but in a couple of years I am open to what comes my way. This will be the first year in three years that I get to just teach school and not go to class at the same time. Thanks Robin, Karen and Becky for helping makes this not so bad. Congratualations girls, we did it!!!!

Our Disney Vacation

Well we have been back from Disney a week but we haven't been home much. Parker has had a lot of baseball games and even came in 2nd place in the last tournament. We are in the middle of another one now. I am trying to catch up on all the things we have been into. We came home from Disney on Friday night played a game and played 3 games on Saturday and then left after church on Sunday to go camping with Mamaw, Grandaddy, Lorie and the kids. We came back home on Tuesday to get ready for the fourth of July and more games. I will post those pictures as soon as possible. We had a great time in Disney. We stayed at All Star Movies this was the last All Star resort that we had not stayed in yet. We even got to stay in the Toy Story building which is what we requested. Meredith had a great time having make over at Bibbity Bobbity Boutique at the Castle. We did the dining plan this year for the first time and it was wonderful. We had buffets and character dining every night. The food at Disney is great and well worth the money. We back to some of our old favorites like O'hana at the Polynesian, Chef Mickey at the Contemporary and Crystal Palace. We also tried some new places like Libery Tree Tavern. Parker was really into rides this time. He even rode Expedition Everest in Animal Kingdom with Don and myself. It was an awesome roller coaster. Meredith got the nerve up and rode Thunder Mountain Railroad and Splash Mountain this year. She still liked Peter Pan and Winnie the Pooh the best. I am afraid to say how many times we rode those. A lot I know that. She and I would go look for characters while Don and Parker would ride some of the rides she didn't want to ride. We love having our Parker hopper passes. We would sometimes do 3 parks in a day. We always go back to the Magic Kingdom at night it is the best time to ride the rides there with hardly any wait. We can't wait to go back!!!!
