The Boy is on Spring Break

Landon, my big Kindergartener, is on Spring Break. While the weather hasn't quite cooperated, we have still made many plans. Today he is playing with his friend Brooklynn. They are headed to Jumpin' Joey's and out to lunch while the rain keeps them from playing outside.

Nate took the morning off yesterday and we enjoyed a few hours with him. My boys are all about their Daddy. He can do no wrong in their eyes. It makes my heart completely happy. We made our fruit smoothies and got ready for the day. We didn't tell the boys where we were going as we told them it would be a surprise. Landon kept guessing where we might be going. It was hilarious. I kept asking him where he thought and he of course was naming all of his favorite places. He did guess it but we didn't confirm until we got there. It was Bass Pro! Landon and Liam both love this place and could spend hours and hours there. We look at everything and learn about everything. I think Landon thinks we are going to purchase one of their boats for him someday. Hopefully he won't be too disappointed.

I did accept the PTA president position. It is going to be a stretch for me but I feel like it is the thing for me to do. To be honest after learning about what PTA is, the responsibilities, etc. it made me want to say "heck no!" Nate quickly reminded me what I had been praying about. I had been praying about helping Landon's school in anyway I could. There didn't seem to be any needs at the time until this. Obedience is the word that I am proclaiming right now. So, if you are like me and used to make fun of PTA Moms, think before you speak. You might be one of them someday too.

Springfield P2G Conference/PTA

This year’s Springfield P2G Conference was held last month and brought together principals, counselors, assistant principals, teachers and community organizations interested in helping the district. Together they discussed strategies used by each of the 52 schools to keep students engaged, motivated and on track to graduate with their classmates.

Nate and Landon were asked to be a part of the closing video for this conference. Here is the link.

We love Springfield Public Schools and will continue to support their principals, teachers, and therapists.

I got to meet with Landon's principal today. She stopped me yesterday as I was picking Landon up for school and asked me if I would be interested in being the president of PTA. My first initial thought was to laugh. I remember making fun of PTA Moms when I worked full-time. I even remember myself saying I will NEVER be one of those. I think it is funny how God directs your life. We are going to pray about it over the weekend and see what we feel like the first part of next week. Until then....
