Safety and flags

Caleb has been a busy little guy lately.  He joined the safety patrol team at school and helps load and unload students from their cars at the drop off lines at school.  He is a serious worker too!  I should know, I spied on him one day ;)

He also joined flag football!

Caleb even won the weekly sportsmansip award for RESPECT!

Caleb was given this sign to put in our lawn for the week.  He was so proud and excited!

Way to go Caleb!

Snow days!

Last Friday we had a snow day.  A snow day - in Texas!  The kids were beyond excited to be able to stay home from school and spent hours playing outside in the snow.

This much snow ;-)

Today is another snow day.  There is no snow on the ground (so no picture to show you), but the roads are icy and people in Texas do not know how to drive on icy roads - or when it rains.  This morning there was no announcement of today's cancellation.  In fact, I woke up the kids and got them all the way to the school drop off line only to see school employees standing with poster board signs that said TWO HOUR DELAY, GO HOME.  Well done, school district.  Great planning and timing.

We turned around and headed home and the kids IMMEDIATELY put on their Christmas pjs.  I am not kidding, they still wear them all the time.  We later got word that school would be cancelled for the day.

The good news is the kids are happy as can be.

The bad news is both of these days will need to be made up.

I learned something new!

One of my goals this year is to learn more about blogging.  I know the basics and that is about it.  Time to learn more!

So, this is what I learned today - adding a banner (or label) to my photographs.  I have been googling how to do this for days and never found an easy answer.  Today, I emailed a blogger (she doesn't know me) and she immediately replied with a few suggestions.  There are some nice people in this world!

Here is what my photo would normally look like...

And this is what it could look like... JUST by adding a banner.

AND, I can even add my blog name to a photo - if someone wants to pin one of my awesome ideas.  You never know, right?!

I still have a lot to figure out, but I learned something new today and that feels good!
