Band Camp, Auctions, Etc....

Band Camp: Since this week has been filled with band camp and working to put my classroom back together, nothing exceptional has happened. This was the easy week of band, with only freshman being there. The next two weeks will be hard.....8 to 6 everyday. I'm pretty sure I'll be worn out by day 3 or 4......but with 10 days of it ahead of me, I have to be positive! Hey, no "this one time at band camp" jokes either people! ANNNDDD no making fun of my ankle tan line....stark white feet, with a hint of a flip flop shoes are a MUST! I can't get around it! Whitney, you understand what I mean, right?

School: My classroom is almost done. I still have to put up bulletin boards, and the piles of stuff I didn't want to deal with have been shoved in my I'll have to mess with that eventually.......but the furniture is back in it's place! Curious George stuff has been strategically placed upon my bookshelves, and my classroom library is close to being arranged. Oh, and I dusted, which is a rare occurrence for me. Mom will be proud.

Dark Knight: Amazing movie......made my heart pound! GO SEE IT!

Farmer's Market: My new favorite thing! I went to the one by the mall with mom. It had a family playing fiddles and singing (think SDC type music), all kinds of produce, and the most beautiful fresh bouquets I'd ever seen. I bet it'll be even better in the fall with pumpkins and mums!

Auctions: An old favorite thing! I love auctions (Jill, you are with me on this, I just know it). Don't make it to them very often, get nervous when I bid on anything, and am pretty determined when I find something I want. Met dad at one today. I found some old chairs that I really wanted. I left dad in charge of getting them for me (because I couldn't stay) annnddd he got them!!!! Three chairs for under $10! HOT!!!!!!!! Thanks dad!

Babysitting: I am babysitting for my wonderful friend Julie tonight. I am nervous already. Yes, I can handle 25 ten year olds on a daily problem! But can I take care of 3 little kiddos under the age of 5 all by myself? A baby going on 7 months, a 3 year old, and a 5 year old. Julie, you might never ask for me to babysit again!

My new favorite song (click on it!!): Beating My Heart by Jon McLaughlin. I play this over and over. Whitney: On an unrelated note, every time Kenny and I hear Viva la Vida by Coldplay (another fave song), one of us does Chris Kattan's head move and the other breaks into Tracy Morgan's hand/wrist shake. Picture that! Good times....


  1. Yesss! You figured out the YouTube mumbo jumbo. Yeah!
    (Man, I like that song too.. stealing it presently.)

    And yes, I'm with you on the untanned feet and the Coldplay dance. You be Chris Kattan and I'll be Tracy Morgan. (But, shoot, we need sweaters!)

  2. You got a great deal on the chairs! There is something addictive about auctions. Miss seeing your room. Feeling sorry about you and band camp.

  3. So I played the song you listed by J. McLaughlin, I liked it! Thanks.

  4. Jill, I'm so glad you liked it!
