Chad has been very busy with beginning of the year activities at the BCM and we are slowly getting into our own routine. I've been subbing a lot and am learning to enjoy the flexibility! I would be lying if I told you I weren't ready to get back in my own classroom, though! I'm definitely looking forward to that and missing it! In the meantime, I'm loving being able to go to events at the BCM and spend extra time with Chad (when possible!). The picture above is from our first Arkansas StAte game. It was hot, hot, hot!!! Anyone who knows me well knows that I was totally over it within the first quarter! Luckily we were winning and Chad was fine with leaving at half-time. I like going to games later in the fall...especially when I can wear a cute outfit that I won't sweat in :). We see where my priorities lie.
Jonesboro is a sweet town. Everyone is nice and I'm finding my way around to all the shops in town! We definitely miss the good food in New Orleans, though :(....living there made us food snobs, for sure!
This weekend we took a spur of the moment QUICK trip to Paducah to see my Grandma Nell. She's not doing very well now and I really wanted to be able to spend time with her while she is still somewhat coherent and able to recognize me. It was sad to see how much she has declined (especially mentally) since the last time we were with her. Chad and I took our wedding pics and the wedding video for her to see. She enjoyed looking at the video and understood bits and pieces...especially when I walked down the aisle. It was sweet to see her enjoy that moment! Being with her this weekend was very sad, but made me so thankful for all the wonderful memories our family has with her. She was and always will be a wonderful Grandma!
The next few weekends are packed full of football games and family! We're looking forward to some much needed time with our family (my parents haven't seen us in almost three months). I'm sure we'll have many pictures to post next time.
Hope all is well...
