We are so lucky to live across the street from our church. We spend many afternoons playing on our church playground. Jett loves to climb and slide and run his trains through the mulch that covers the ground.
My totally awesome friend, Roxie, put on the best show ever with her youth dance troupe. They were awesome. She spent all summer rehearsing a group of Tupleo's young talents to perform at the Civic. There was an outpouring of support and it was a phenomenal evening that almost transported you out of Tupelo for a few hours.
School started and on the first day we held an active shooter training. I volunteered to ride in the helicopter as a critically injured gun shot victim. It was a gut wrenching experience listening to kids acting injured. The ride was a chance of a lifetime, but knowing in real life what we would be leaving behind was tough as an administrator.
The Pollards have also taken to carpooling this school year. The first day we made it to a few miles from town until my morning delightfully chipper personality clashed with Cullen's quiet outlook on the day. We will continue to work through it. Happy School Year 2015-2016
Jett Boy made his first trip to the ER the first Friday night of school. Just after a run, I came in, sat down on the couch with Jett and Cullen and as we watched TV, surfed the internet, and just relaxed, Jett played on the couch. He was about to tumble off and Cullen stuck out his arm to stop him. Jett managed to bounce right back up and into the wall. He must have hit just right, because with in minutes he was vomiting and trying to fall asleep. We dressed him and got him to the ER. A CT scan later we found he was fine, but had most likely suffered a concussion. I had gone in to principal mode and didn't really let myself get emotional, Cullen made himself sick with worry. We were allowed to go home and told he'd be fine. This mama was not okay once we got home, I woke to check on him and have been watching him more closely since. I hope that is our one and only child hood trip.
