Paddington goes to the Fire Academy

Jeff's nephew, Kuiper, was assigned to carry the class bear, Paddington, everywhere he went this weekend. This included his trip to Family Night for Gwinnett's almost graduated fire cadets (class 2007-3).

Here we have Jeff with Jacob, Kuiper, and Paddington, posing in posing with Jeff's fire gear in front of a reserve fire engine.

And, here, well, I guess Paddington wanted a ride in Uncle Jeff's pocket.

I was thankful that Jeff was not selected to do this demonstration while I was there.

And this photo of Jeff's neice was just too cute to pass up.

And this Friday at 4:00. . . GRADUATION! Anyone who wants to come, we'll see you at the Gwinnett County Courthouse. Thanks for your prayers and support through this loooooong 11 month!

Our Snow!

Well, I waited until today to post this because it was "supposed to" snow so much better today that it did on Thursday. Not even one flake fell. We heard that Atlanta got it pretty good though.

But Thursday is noteworthy because it got us out of school:-)

We maybe had 3/4" to an inch at most, but Daisy enjoyed it.

It fell all night, but by the time and we had a better ground cover than this, but I don't take good pictures in the dark, so I did not try.

This is what was left when I went out at 9:00am. It was better when I went out with Daisy at 6:00 (had to get up anyway to watch the news to see if school was canceled), but again, it was dark, so I did not take a photo.

I knew our back yard would look cool with snow! (Well, some of this is our back yard, some of it is the golf course).

What a great concert!

Went to Winter Jam on Friday night. We were holding out for BarlowGirl and Skillet. We left at 9:30 before MercyMe, though because neither Jeff nor I had eaten dinner (we met at the concert since he was driving home from Atlanta) and we had both been up since 5am. Several of my students stayed and said it was great. One of my rather loquacious boys said that they played "like a hundred songs," so I am glad that we left when we did:-)
