As you know I havn't had time to blog lately because I've been working at Oakland High School as the Substitute Secretary. I have truly enjoyed it and it looks like it could be turning into a permanent position. One of the things that I have really liked about it is getting to know the students. I'm lucky enough to have 3 of the starters of the basketball team as office workers which promted Joey and I to actually start going to the basketball games. We have had so much fun watching games and getting to know other parents and teachers. The team has worked so hard and it really had paid off by being ranked 2nd in the state. But last night was the last game of the season. They lost in the second round of the state tournament in a 3 overtime game...yes, that's right...3 overtimes. It was the most exciting game I have ever seen. But by the end of that last overtime they had played so hard and I could see the frustration and disappointment on their faces. The other team had scored 4 points and it became a reality that they couldn't fight back enough to get a win. I actually left with 20 seconds left on the clock because I knew I didn't want to see that look of disappointment in their eyes. It was heart wrenching. :(
But I am so, so proud of them! Here's a link to the article in the paper about the game.

Other news in my life: Yesterday we celebrated Lillie's birthday. She will be four on Wednesday and since Joey and I are going out of town (Yah!) we had a little party for her. Can you believe she is 4?!!! 

And.........this afternoon Joey and I are heading down to Palm Beach Shores for the week. For a whole week I plan on laying on the beach, reading a couple books, doing absolutely nothing. Pure enjoyment!
Of course I post a couple pictures when I get back.

Hope you have a great weekend!
