morning and settled in for a cat nap. We ate in town and then headed
to Jenny Lake, made our way to two national parks and grilled in the
parking lot! We had some sickness along the way and so far we have
had two hurt baby knees, but everyone is still in good spirits!
Oh may all who come behind us find us faithful
May the fire of our endurance light their way
May the footprints that we leave lead them to believe
And the lives we live inspire them to obey---
I have always loved those words and what they mean to me as a
teacher! Today I saw Old Faithful and I was reminded at how important
our faithfulness as Christians can be, and how we depended on the
geyser to be there--- we should require that same amount of consitancy
in our daily relationship with the Lord and those we come in contact
with who need our example..

it inside as I had just woken up from a long summers nap- I did wake
up in time for a photo moment! I'm pictured with trip mate Amanda
Campbell Puckett whom I went to North Pontotoc with! Her husband
wanted to male sure I didn't miss the opportunity to blog about this
store as it is the only place that he knows of where u can by a fox
bodypart that can be used as a toothpick--- and that's all I'm saying
about that! Love from Wyoming!

art online. A mom in my class had the children select their favorite
piece, bought quilt blocks, pieced the quilt and had her mother hand
quilt it for me! Here is the shocker-- she made two- my teaching
partner got one as well! I cried, because it was a perfect gift, I
cried because so many hours were spent creating this gift just for me,
I cried because this class is unlike any I have ever had before or
will ever have again, and I cried because the parent spokesperson made
a very touching speech!
begins the week of graduation for Meagan, and this time is very
stressfull! Pray for Miss Julie as this is her baby and it could
prove to be an emotional week! And since you're praying u could lump
me in, too-- just for good measure:)

Also this rain is not fun for my cake decorating days either. I hate delivering cakes in the rain, and as I have started working more and more with fondant I surely don't like the humidity as it causes the fondant to droop and sag...
Yesterday I journeyed to Oxford in the rain with my two favorite seniors, Anna and Meagan, along with "Mrs. Koon" as they call my friend Kim. We shopped around the square and found refuge from the storm in Boure. A fun time in the wet weather.
Today I am procrastinating making a sign for church tonight and not wanting to get all my paints and stuff out. But duty calls and I am ready to get it over with... so I'm off to paint. Then I've been wanting to sew some things.
Happy Rainy Sunday.
Thinking about this rain and being in Oxford yesterday reminded me that every morning when I was venturing to find a parking place in the rain Clint Black's song "I Never Liked the Rain" always seemed to play on the radio. And for now and forever I think I will always hum that song when it rains like it has been doing the last few weekends.
