Anyway, we're leaving Georgia at 9am and headed to Mount Vernon to do it again. But this time there will only be about 5 or 6 of us. The others are coming from Omaha, NE. THAT's why we chose Illinois...it's about a 6 - 7 hour drive for everyone. We literally looked at a map, closed our eyes and picked a place that was equal distance for everyone. And for those of you who are scrapbookers, get this...there's about 3 scrapbook stores within a mile in each direction of the hotel we'll be in. AND, a super Wal-Mart. Doesn't get much better than that. We're gonna fill up the little fridge with snacks & drinks and get our SCRAP on!!! :-)
Well, that's a wrap for me. Got some last minute things to do before I go, then I'm gone 'til Sunday. Ya'll have a great weekend!!!

What a pretty truck! And the picture's not too bad either :-).
This is a picture of the kids listening to the fireman telling them about all the tools on the truck. The boys really enjoyed seeing that big ole pick ax :-). On another funny note, the fireman asked if the kids knew how far a certain length of fire hose would stretch (I can't remember the exact number he said). But my Jayla raised her hand and said, "However far you just said!" All the fireman could do was laugh and tell her she was right. :-)
This is one of the smaller trucks (small is relative, I guess). They pulled it out for the kids so they could see it up close (again). And they even turned on the flashing lights and "briefly" turned on the siren. Talk about LOUD!!! Funny thing is, they say this isn't even the loudest one.
Well, that's about it for our Field Trip. It was such a pleasure to spend a few hours with Jayla and her classmates. It was SO exciting to see the excitement on these kids' faces. And Jayla was so proud to be able to tell her friends that HER mommy was there with her. To me, that's what having kids is all about, sharing in their experiences, and in turn, making memories with them. And I must say, I'll remember this day for a long time.
Have a great weekend everyone!

PARENT: Loving (should be anyway)
CHOCOLATE: Delightful (and necessary..hee hee)
Well, there you have. Short, simple and to the point. Now THAT's a challenge, huh? I guess it's my turn to tag someone. Diane, Renee, Adrienne, Veronica & Brown English Muffin...you're up!!!

Well, needless to say, I can't wait for the pictures to come back from the school. And, when she got home today, it was time to pose for mommy. So, here she is, looking like a cute little school girl.
Excuse the slightly messy hair. This was, after all, AFTER school. Her teachers claim she was "picture perfect" for the photograher though.
That's it. I'll post the "real" ones when they come in.
Enjoy your day!
