I See the Beach In Your Future

Well I definitely see it in MY future! Tomorrow Josh and I leave for a week of "Fun In the Sun!" I can't wait to sit on the white sandy beaches and all I have to worry about is when was the last time I applied sunscreen to myself and Josh :) My sister and her husband are joining us for a few days, so I'm excited about that too!

My week has not be a fun filled one. I grocery shopped, vaccumed, wash clothes, had library duty at my school (students can come into the computer lab to take Accelerated Reader tests), and had lunch with Josh. Nothing too exciting.

Monday is the Fourth of July, so I hope everyone has a wonderful fourth and don't forget to spend time with family and friends. I'll leave you with a picture of my American Flag cake I made last year and will do so again this year!!

Help! I need to be destracted!

Yes, I currently have 2 Gigi's Cupcakes in my kitchen that I want to dive into oh so badly, but I have to wait until Josh comes home so we can enjoy them together.

Therefore I have to distract myself and what better way then to update my blog :) Yesterday as I was looking at other people's blogs I came to a conclusion: my life is not that busy to where I could update my blog 2 or 3 times a week! I mean who wants to hear about how Josh and I come home from work, have dinner, watch the Braves, work on schoolwork, and lay in bed watching reruns of Seinfeld and The Simpsons?? BORING! I love looking at people's blogs that have children because they usually have cute stories about something their little one did or said. However I am sure that everyone gets tired of me talking about how silly Bouncer and Shadow are! Therefore my goal from here on out is to update my blog at least ONCE week and give you every or ANY exciting thing that happens to the Fryers :)

Since summer has started I've been taking part in a program at my school called "Summer Knights" (the knight is our mascot, great play on words huh). I have had a Reading Improvement camp and this week I am doing a Math Improvement camp. I enjoy working with a small group one on one with things they are struggling with. Kids say and do the darnedest things! For example I have the sweetest, cutest, little black girl in my class. She came up to me while we were on the playground and told me that mosquitoes love to bite her because they think she's chocolate milk!! Oh that made my day! Please continue to pray for me and my job. 2nd grade needs 22 students for us to be split into 2 classes, as of right know we are at 19 with a possible 25. I just need 3 more students!!

Tuscaloosa is starting to clear everything out. 15th Street is pretty much cleared of all downed tress, and debris from buildings. I am truly amazed at people's positive attitudes during this time. If you read People magazine then you might have seen an article about a dog named Mason: the Tornado Dog. This dog is awesome and it made me think of Shadow. I know for a fact that Shadow would find a away to come back to Josh and I if something ever happend. Here's a different article and few pictures of this precious dog:

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Memorial Day Weekend Recap!

Hello Everyone! Hope you had a fabulous Memorial Day Weekend like I did. The Fryers spent it at the beach with a bunch of close friends, acquaintances, and even strangers! We coined the weekend "Cooperfest" because of the Cooper family who started this annual beach trip and everyone else started to join them. It's a lot of laughs, corn hole, "Flimsy", sun, food, drinks, and waiting forever to eat dinner. :) When you have a group of 30 going somewhere to eat you don't sit down right away. It's good to catch up with people we don't get to see very often because we live here in Tuscaloosa and everyone has a lot going on themselves! Here are some of my favorite pictures from the weekend. Enjoy!

There were LOTS of "Beach Naps!" :)

Happy Memorial Day from the Fryers!

I start teaching "Summer Knights" next week. Wish me luck, I'm sure I will have funny stories to share!
