Last weekend, I went with some friends to a tractor party!! We've been talking about this party for several weeks now! Elizabeth has been so excited!! I had a good picture in my mind of what this little festival would like... I'm from Iowa. These things happen all over the place in the summer! I couldn't wait to go because I wanted to compare it to the good ol' midwest!
Well... as soon as we pulled in, I couldn't help but miss home! It was exactly as I had pictured. The cars parked in the field, the equipment was all parked in rows, old tractors that have been fixed up. It was so great!!

I love that he is so resourceful and can take care of anything for me.
I love that he is so responsible and handles so many things that I don’t understand.
I love that he is so brave and puts his life at risk to give me freedom.
I love that he is so loving and fills my heart just by being who he is.
I love that he is my husband for the rest of my life and that I get to enjoy him forever!
I sure miss you Jay, but know that you are in my heart always and forever! I love you!

Starting with drinks and TONS of food led to REALLY full tummies. After that, we were all so full that we jusy layed around and chatted.

Most of the ladies were going to walk through the race, instead of run. At the start of the race, I walked with the ladies for the first 100 meters, but then decided that this was going to be too slow for me. So, I took off and ran the rest of the race by myself. I ended up doing only the 3K, so it wasn't all that long. I didn't want to push my lungs too far in the cold weather. I was the first one to the finish line, but that wasn't too big of an accomplishment. Our commander came in 100 meters behind me and he ran the 5K. After I finished, I wished I would have kept going. I think I could have handled it. Ohs wells! I can do that on my own!

On Tuesday night, we had Dr. Seuss night at school. Each grade level had an activity for the kids to do. I helped the kids do readers theater. We had several scripts prepared, along with neck signs so the kids knew who they were. The kids were able to go around to the different classrooms and participate in the events. At the end, we had birthday cake and one of the teachers did a skit up on the stage.
Here we are doing one of our readers theatre.
It was a fun week, but it kept the kids very hyper! I enjoyed dressing up and being silly with them though!! That's part of the fun of teaching.... being able to act like a fourth grader!
