Our Old Kentucky Home

I took these pictures the morning after our last night in our house. We were about to load the moving truck for Missouri. I wanted to remember the view of our neighborhood from our house. We loved living here. It was a perfect location in the city and was such a peaceful, quiet and pretty setting. And, it can be yours! We're still trying to sell the house and are praying for a buyer to come along soon. We'll miss you Kimberly Drive!

Moving In

We moved in to our new house this week and things are a mess! We still don't have the computer hooked up so I haven't been able to download any new pix to share. Hopefully this weekend we can do that. We are enjoying getting settled and are looking forward to Paul's first Sunday in the new church this weekend. Today was a holiday for the kids and for me too! I tackled a few more boxes from the garage and the kids played with Taylor next door. She is in 2nd grade at the same school as Mallory so it's nice to have a friend next door for the kids to play with. We drove to Sikeston and looked at three furniture stores for a chair for Paul. No luck.

Tonight the move Tooth Fairy was on. They were playing hockey and Michael looked up and said, "Look! They're playing skate golf. That's dangerous. You shouldn't try to play golf while you're skating on ice!!"

My first day of school

I started my new job today and really enjoyed it. The kids are great, there are five girls and ten boys in our class. Mrs. Leslie is awesome and such a great teacher. I am so thankful to have this opportunity and look forward to learning the ropes and helping out in any way I can. There are several people who work at the school who go to the church so it was nice to see familiar faces throughout the day. I ate lunch in the teacher's lounge with the other grown ups while our kids ate in the lunch room. I helped get the cookies and milk ready. I played with the kids during play time. Mrs. Leslie had chocolate for me when I arrived. I'm going to love my new job!

The Game Farm

I took the kids to the Salato Wildlife Center, or as most of the locals call it...the game farm, one last time when we were in Frankfort a couple of weeks ago. We met my friend Kimberly and her daughter Sutton for a nice morning. We have been going here for years and it's really great because it's FREE! I used to push the kids in strollers and now they run all over the place and wade in the streams.

I got a job!


I got the news tonight that I have been hired as a preschool teacher's assistant at Mallory's school, Doyle Elementary. I will have the same hours as she does and we will ride to and from school together. This is also the preschool where Michael is number one on the waiting list so if and when he gets in we will all be going to school together. I have met the teacher I will be working with and she is great. When I told her about my degree she said having a degree in theatre was perfect for working with a class full of 4 year olds! ha!

The job sounds awesome and I am so excited and thankful!!! I haven't worked outside the home since I was pregnant with Mallory so I was really hoping to get a school job when I did go back to work. Having the same schedule as the kids is really ideal. I will have the holidays, snow days, Christmas and Spring breaks and, of course, the summer off with them. And get this...the schools here get out on May 4th! Nice! So, hi-ho, hi-ho, it's off to work I go! Praise the Lord!

Oh man I hate to leave this place!! Magee's Bakery has been in Frankfort for over 40 years from what I understand. Even though we have been in Frankfort for five and a half years I didn't discover Magee's until about two years ago. But, once I did, I became a regular, unfortunately, and always enjoyed their yummy donuts and pastries. We had to visit this past weekend during our Labor Day trip to Frankfort.

They have wonderful donuts in the morning. Usually I would catch them when they were still warm. Oh so awesome.

Charlie and Alice are the owners of the bakery. Alice always looked beautiful, even at 730 in the morning and was so nice and friendly. She would often give Michael some free donut holes. Charlie makes the best petit fours!! MMMMMM Good! I must make one more trip there when we go back for the last Sunday in a couple of weeks.

I will miss you Magee's!!!!

Michael and Freya were pals all through out their first year of preschool last year. They played together and just got along really well. We don't push the whole boyfriend/girlfriend thing with our kids but if we did you might say Freya was Michael's first little crush. One day he told me, "Freya was in purple today." So cute. Freya's birthday was going to be after we moved to East Prairie so we had a little mini birthday celebration at the Y in the child care room where they also played when their mommies were working out. Freya told me she liked Hello Kitty so we got her some Kitty cupcakes and a bag of Hello Kitty goodies.

When I took this picture I said we need to get a good one for the rehearsal dinner one day if they ever were to get married:)
