this is the time of year school starts getting crazy.  we found out our room assignments, team assignments, and what we'll be teaching next year on monday.  i have to move rooms again, i have a new team again, and i'm teaching only writing next year.  so, it will be my 4th year there, my 3rd classroom, my 5th different team, and for the second time i will get to pack up all my reading and history materials.  whatever, at least i'm not pregnant this time while i have to move all my stuff!  i'm actually excited about only teaching writing.  this year has been really hard trying to fit everything in.  we have more staar tests this week...reading and math.  relay for life was last night.  i'm glad i went, even though it was pretty cold, because a lot of people didn't show up!  i stopped by ghs cheer tryouts last night before glad Scout is a boy!!!!  my mom's birthday was this week.  she kept Scout home from mdo and took him on a picnic at the park.  thursday, they went to the zoo.  i think my kid loves to zoo!  he's really into birds right now.  when they were at the park this week, he saw a goose and started honking at it!  we're not sure who we can give credit to for that, but i'm betting on curious george or my mom...she may not remember teaching him that!  Scout cut ANOTHER tooth this week, so his sleeping has been a little off and he can be a little grumpy at times.  he also hates being interrupted for a diaper change and tries to kick k-dogg and i while we are changing times!  we're about to go wrap up my mom's birthday week this afternoon with a late lunch at tgifridays and a trip to fresh!  yeah, our family celebrates birthdays all week!  my birthday this year is on a saturday, we're out of school the day before it, and it's the saturday after mother's day!  plus, we have field day that week.  should be a pretty good week!  in case you missed 'em on fb, here's some Scout pictures to catch you up...

little bunny foo foo

i started singing that song to Scout the other day to distract him while i was changing his diaper.  so, he's been running around since then saying, "bop, bop, bop!"  i only sing the first verse, because i've always thought that song was a wee bit twisted!  yesterday, he was eating lunch at gram's and said, "bopmmmm."  we got him to switch it around to mmmbop.  i found the hanson song on my phone and played it for him...he started dancing in his high chair.  k-dogg is not really excited about Scout being a hanson fan!  Scout had his first egg hunt yesterday.  he had a lot of fun and wore out himself and my parents' dog...but he is not an accomplished egg hunter.  he likes to hide the eggs, take them apart, and throw them!  he sees no reason to pick them up and put them in a basket once he's spotted them.  guess that's a luxury of being an only!  he was not thrilled with the crowd and the longer service at church this morning, so i didn't get any good pictures of our family all dressed in our coordinating, but not matching outfits.  i'm proud to say that my son was the only kid in his nursery class NOT wearing pastels or bright pink!  we are not really a pastel family...even for Resurrection Sunday!  these pictures are from his egg hunt yesterday.

he found an egg in his shirt!
he studies EVERYTHING!
scout and scarlett, way too close for my comfort!

my students said he looks like he bit a squirrel and forgot to let go!
After church today, isn't his outfit cute?  told y'all he was not happy!
