Flying Purple Platypi and other things

Hey, long, long time no post!

I will make no promises as to when I will post again, since my brain seems to be leaking information, either that or I keep deleting files for new ones. I am happy to say that right now I am on spring break from classes and I can catch a little breathe. So far all my best laid plans for my time off have not come to fruition(college word..LOL) for this week, but it has been a good one nonetheless. The kids and I worked on a poem yesterday that I'd like to share, now be prepared it is a bit silly..

Flying Poisonous Purple Platypi

Oh my look in the sky
It is a herd of Flying Poisonous Purple Platypi
I didn't know that they could fly
Watch out, don't let them poop in your eye
You may get a stye

Okay, so it needs some revision, but its a start and I bet you smiled!! I love words, don't you? Poetry is kinda like painting with words, don't you think? Anyway, we had fun working on that together a little before school yesterday.

Last week the kids were out of school for their spring break and it rained and rained and rained some more.. Yucky! Though we did go bowling one of the days and it was fun, even if my old lady hips get thrown out every time I roll, toss, or whatever it is that you do with a bowling ball. The kids loved it and have been wanting to go back to "Glo Bowl", which is where they have black lights on and everything, including the balls glow.. yeah, fun!! Let's see the rest of the week was quite interesting, my darling hubby decided he needed some time away so he went to the hospital for a stress test on his heart... (I say this jokingly of course) At the time it was a scary thing. We are so very thankful for all the prayers, help and concern that many showed to us for those 2 days. We still don't know what is causing his chest pain, but all the tests that they did with his heart came back okay, so we are very thankful for that good news. I know that he is very thankful to be out of the hospital, HE HATED IT THERE!

So... I am off... I am going to do something fun today, that is a promise!! If I find some time to be creative and make something fabulous I will take pictures and post them sometime in the future (notice I didn't say near-future).

Blessings to All!!!
