Browsing through the news on msnbc.com while the kids nap, I came across this story about a middle school in mississippi who has segregated its elected class positions by race. Unbelievable! Seriously, what are the superintendent, principal and teachers of this school thinking?? And what does this say for the town of Nettleton, Mississippi? I also wonder if the town is only populated with "black" and "white" students...what about hispanics, asians and filipinos? It's bad enough they have segregated class positions by race, but to outcast children of other races, those that don't fit under the "black or white" catagories, is just as unthinkable. If my child ever brought home anything like this from their school, not only would I pull them out of the school, but I would leave the town all together! It is hard to imagine that there are people out there that look at this and see no wrong. It is 2010 people! It is time to wake up and pop this little bubble you are living in.

this is little jax's favorite game at chuck E cheese.
putting his token in the slot, he jumps in excitment as the machine lights up, starts making the "ding~ding~ding" sound, and those yellow balls roll down the slot.
after several attemps of rolling...and tossing...and launching them up the lane, he figures out that it is much easier to just climb up the skee ball game and put the ball in the 1,000 point hole.
it's amazing what you can get away with
when you're 2.

i stand corrected. in an earlier post i stated that i live in "east texas", which apparently is incorrect. after being informed from another resident of corsicana and doing a little investigation myself, i think it is safe to say that i do not live in east texas, but instead north central texas.

this morning i was scrolling through our photos from summer, thinking back to our vacation in Hawaii and how beautiful The Big Island is. remembering what a fun time the boys had at vacation bible school and all the little day trips we took with the windows rolled down and kids screaming in the backseats. the innocence and laughter of the boys just running through the yard sprinklers and playing in the back yard on the slip-'n-slide. a lot of memories have been made this summer and i love how pictures can, for a split moment, take you back in time and bring a smile to your face.
then of course, i found this picture. the dump station picture.
why my husband feels the need to capture the memory of the dump station at a texas campground is beyond me.
but here it is, and here it will stay.
can someone please explain?
