Hi! This school year has started off great. Our first football game for Del Norte was last night. It was also my first band performance. And get this... Del Norte won. It was the most excting home game in 3 years. It was 21 to 0 and del norte was losing and then we shot up and won 28 to 21!! It was exctiing and playing with the band was awesome. Other then that things have been going well. My moms surgery went well but she had a real bad allergic reaction to the medicane they gave her. She is feeling a bit better now but since she cant take her medicane anymore she is in pain where they did the surgery. Hopefully we can help her feel better soon.
Brian is homesick and so we hope to see him soon. The house is a lot different with him gone. Well I better go. I have tons of homework.

Catching up

Pictures from my mother-in-laws house.

Had the surgery on Wednesday morning, everything went well. They took 1/2 the wisdom tooth out, the rest is fused to my jaw bone. So it stays that way for now. They will have to do the other side, but the doctor wants to wait an year so I can completely recover from this surgery. I am not is a lot of pain, I was yesterday and made the mistake of taking the pain killer they gave me. Landed up sicker with that then the surgery it self. Today I am sore, but I feel good. Going to roast chile, make pinto beans for the freezer and bake some bread, as soon as I get Matthew to school.
Take care,

Checking In

School has stated, I have a good class they are very low academically, but are quiet and they try hard (no behavioral problems this year). Will take a while to get everyone into a routine. We have 3 girls, that's a first. I am so used to boys in Special Ed.

Now for the bad news, I stated work and already I have to take a week off . I have had an on/off tooth ache for about two weeks so I went to the dentist. My bottom wisdom teeth are trying to grow (pop out) and one is infected deep in the root area (not the roots, just the area) so I am on antibiotics. The wisdom teeth are also pushing all my other teeth forward, no wonder its been hard to floss. So within the next 10 days I have to have them surgically removed. The x-rays also show a dark area so they are also going to explore that area. Not only is going to hurt, but its going to cost.

Other news: Brian is doing great. He is taking 200 level classes (sophomore classes). Hope he can keep it up. Kevin and Emily had a good day at high school and yes they got homework. Matthew's class is huge. Its two teachers team teaching and they have a total of 47 kids. Whoa, that's a lot. He also got homework. Lunch and bells were a problem today, hope they get fixed.

My Two Drummers

My two high school students had their first band concert last night. They sounded very good.

Here is Kevin on snare

and here is Emily on Base.
Cute smile.
I am only missing a picture of my oldest with his NMSU drum on. I can't believe that school starts next week. The days are going by so fast. No sewing has been done, I started work today.
Hope to get something done this weekend.
Take Care,

End of Summer and Sewing

Summer is over, I have spent the past two days registering kids for college and high school. I go back to work on Thursday which is too soon in my book. I did not get to do much of what I wanted to do this summer. I really wanted to sew a lot more for my Sewing Club, but the patterns I got months ago still sit uncut.

Emily is working hard on her Silver Award for Girl Scouts and Kevin should be starting his Eagle project soon. So a lot is going on. Plus, Cub Scouts, band and school are starting up. Its going to be busy and expensive the next 5 months.

Here is a fleece blanket I made from scraps I had left over from my after school sewing club, it measures 39" x31".

And this little dress is a combination of patters. I got the fabric from a garage sale, its so cute.

Well thats it for now,

Summer ending

Brian left to college. It was exciting to see his new home and the campus but also pretty sad to see him leave. But he seems to be having a good time in Las cruses except he hates the heat over there. Saturday me and Kevin did a fundraiser marchathon for band. We marched 7 miles in about 3 hours. The drums were super heavy to carry and it hurt my back and shoulders very much but it was also fun to play cadences and to be with the drumline. Our parent concert is wednesday and I cant wait becausI think our show is pretty crazy and bizzare but also cool and a fun show. Well high school starts Friday and I cant wait!

Well we are back home minus one kid. Here is where he is living till December. I did not get any pictures of the inside. We were rushed as Mr. Brian had his first drum line practice. He is playing snare for NMSU Pride Marching Band.

The bottom pictures show Mr. Brian going to practice, this will be his second home. Where he can play drums all day and night and not get told "keep it down, people are trying to relax."

Here are my kids, before we said good bye. Angie (Brian's girl friend), Brian, Kevin, Emily and the little one Matthew. Brian, Kevin, and Emily all play drums. Angie plays the saxophone.

My Baby, can't believe he is in college. I still remember bringing him home from the hospital when he was born. Where has the time gone.

Take Care,

Headed to NMSU

We leave in the morning to NMSU to drop Brian off. We will only see him till 1:00 pm then he has band practice. We will get to spend the evening with him. Today will be doing last minute packing and car maintenance. Kevin and Emily are at band camp right now they are having fun, but its a lot of work and they come home so tired. Next week is registration for school and I start work, summer is over.

I finished some sewing, not much. I will post when I come back from Las Cruces.
