First day of School

I've not posted in quite some time, so I thought I would share some pics. I asked my kiddos if they would send me a picture of themselves on their first day of school this year since I couldn't be there with them. Here is Anthony - first day of seventh grade! He's so handsome!
And here's Krissi on her first day of college - San Jacinto Community College. I remember the campus like it was yesterday. She looks more and more like me every day! Scary, huh?
No matter what has happened or will happen.... I love my children with every bit of my soul. They are my life. I am blessed.

The party was a huge success! Mom and Dad really enjoyed themselves and the pictures that Mem and I gave them. Those that came... THANK YOU! Those that couldn't make it... you missed a super great time! I am proud to say that my parents have celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary.

The Party!

Wow! It's time for "The party". I can't believe it's already here. And of course, true to nature, I've not completed the table decorations. I work better under pressure. Kari is on her way right now... I can't wait for her to get here! The music is all downloaded. The food is all planned. The tent is set up. The yard mowed. I'm so nervous about this going off without anyone getting hurt or anything getting broke. Pray for peace this weekend!!! I'll post pics as soon as I can.

The Kent Girls

I sure hope you guys like these pics. We were very excited that Kari did these for us. HOWEVER, please do NOT tell Mom & Dad. They do not know about them yet!

What I have learned....

What I have learned while being in Louisiana, the Sportsmen's State:

Every gas station has at least one gambling game.
I don’t like gambling.
There are lots and lots of trucks stops and the truckers don’t look for little cars like mine.
Basketball is lots of fun to watch.
The capitol building and the new bridge are beautiful at night.
There are two bridges in Baton Rouge – the old one and the new one.
Grosse Tete (the town we reside) means Big Head when translated from the French language.
Baby cows don’t always live – no matter how much you love on them.
Kevin can hunt! And is a good shot! (no luck fishing though).
I really can’t get along with my dad – no matter how hard I try.
It is possible to make new friends.
There really are stars (lots of them) in the skies at night.
My mother is fragile. She isn’t the strong woman that I remember from my youth.
My extended family does accept me and Kevin in their world.
T-mobile doesn’t get good reception “down the bayou”.
Blue Bayou does exist (even though I think it is actually spelled “Bleaux”.
You do NOT go to Baton Rouge on an LSU football game day! And you don’t leave your house on game days without your purple and gold on.
Email really is awesome!
I have terrible road rage and would prefer taking the scenic route to/from work.
“Living off the land” isn’t quite what I expected (a person can’t live on radishes and mustard greens alone).
How to knit.
The drive to Texas isn’t bad; but the drive back is just plain cruel!
I have yet to figure this one out – people are buried ABOVE ground – sometimes stacked on top of each other.

I have lots to blog about... but, I just wanted to share a moment of ecstasy (yes, I had to look the word up to spell it correctly). Is this but the most perfect moment for any dog??? You know he's thinkin he's in heaven! Beautiful sunlight. Perfect fishing. Wind in his hair. Eyes closed. Nothing better!

Have a beautiful weekend everyone!

I need a change!

I want to change my blog. I'm not sure how though. I know how to change the template, but can anyone recommend a site that will help you personalize it? Any help would be greatly appreciated!
