I'm Still Here...

Boy, getting back into the blogging habit has been hard! I really want to, but when I have time to sit and think - I'm too tired to think!! Summer is going full force around here and I'm really not sure where June went.

The girls both ended school great. Rachel ended second grade and had all "excellents" on her report card. She also completed her Gifted and Talented ISP - which amounted to her first research paper. Wow! She even presented it, with a power point presentation, to a fourth grade class. So proud of her! Rebekah ended Pre-K good and was so excited that next year she will be in kindergarten at her Sissy's school! I will be glad to have them at the same place next year.

We are getting ready to leave for our summer vacation. We are going to San Antonio for a few days then heading up to Dallas for about four days then back home. We're beginning to question our decision because it is SOOOOO HOT here right now, we can only imagine how hot it will be there!! Oh well, water will be our friend!!

Happy summer - to anyone who is still checking/reading my blog. Thanks!!

Nature is Great - A Poem By Rachel

Nature is Great
By Rachel Jones, age 7.5
Written June 4, 2010

Where ever you go, nature is everywhere.
In the mountains or on a plain, nature is in the air.

I am a flower, my petals are bright;
What I really like, is the sun's yellow light.

I am a jewel, you can find me in a cave.
Go inside, you must be brave!

I am land, I’m everywhere;
On the ground or floating on air.

I am animals, I like to roam.
It’s hard to find my natural home.

I am water, I flow a stream.
Try to make sure you stay clean.

I am sky, I show at day and night.
I live with sun, its always bright.

Now you know what nature is about,
Come on, lets shout!

Nature is cool, nature is great
Nature is never, ever late!
