Lesson Planning

I really love my new job as an elementary art teacher.  It certainly is keeping me busy but it is really fun.

Packed Full of Fun

The Nelsons attended Carter's soccer game and Gavin's football game with us. Carter is getting a little more aggressive.  We also went to the Crawford Farms Fall festival.  We ate a lot of cotton candy, pet some animals, and the kids got to ride in a barrel train.  Gavin's football game was at Central High School's practice field.  Alycia fell asleep in the stands and got a sunburn.  The Scorpions won again!

Nelson Weekend

Alycia and her kids came down for the weekend.  We went to the IMAX theater at the science museum while they were here.  It is always fun to have them back in town.

Chihuly at the Arboretum

There was a Chihuly exhibit at the Dallas Arboretum along with their Pumpkin Village.  We spent a lovely Sunday afternoon taking pictures of the kids with the pumpkins and the glass.

Asking First

I asked Renee what she learned at church today and she said, "We learned that Satan wanted to be the Savior but Jesus asked first, so he got to be the Savior."  I think she missed a few very important points too that story.

Our Saturdays

Our Saturdays are filled with soccer and football games.  Carter does really well for about one quarter and then he gets a little bored with soccer.  He is really excited to go and says how "awesome" it is to play.  
Rene'e's cheerleading squad preformed their dance routine for the first time at the football game today.  The girls did a really great job.
The Scorpions won another football game.  Gavin is loving being on such a fantastic team.

Pumpkin Patch

I called off work today because I took Carter to a doctors appointment.  After we were finished we picked up Gavin, Renee, and Nathan (who I watch after school.)  We left school at 1:30 and went to the Flower Mound Pumpkin Patch.  We have been going every year since we moved to Texas.  There have been times when the kids have played their for four hours and they were closing.  Today they lasted an hour and were ready to leave.  This might be it for the pumpkin patch which is really sad.
