2. I haven't blogged at all in the past week. Honestly, I haven't accomplished much at all. Two nights of storms kept me glued to the TVphonecomputer. I have my own little weather nest around me, and I can't quit watching. I have always been scared of storms but thought that I was getting better; I was sadly mistakened. All of the available technology just allows me to feel somewhat in control (which I truly know can't happen).
3. Tuesday afternoon, just after I got home from school, we stood on our front porch and watched this funnel cloud form about two miles north of our house. It was heading east. My brother lives east of here. I called/texted him, his wife, and each of their three children about a thousand times. I wanted them to get in a safe location. My brother thinks I sometimes overreact - I am going to church with him in the morning; I think I'll take my computer and show him these pictures.
4. Baby Jus just finished his last full week of high school. He only has two more days of school. He is extremely happy about this; I am sad. Because I am one of the senior class sponsors, I was able to attend his senior picnic on Friday. We had a great day. The weather was beautiful, and the food was delicious. The kids spent the day fishing, playing volley ball or kick ball, throwing horse shoes, and eating crawfish. I hope that each took away some great memories. I taught them in 7th and 8th grades, watched many of them play ball since elementary, and have been their class sponsor since 7th grade - I already miss them. I won't make it through graduation ceremonies.
(I love this pic. The mud boots at the end is a girl, and she was the only one fishing.)
5. I am linking up with afamiliarpath. Melissa has a really cute button; I don't know how to get it here.
