Hey, guys!  Just want to pop in to say hi.  My first week at school was great.  I have some sweet students.  In the first week, I had a kid compliment me on my dress and one to bring me ice cream.  That's huge because most high schoolers are trying to prove they're super cool, and telling the teacher she has a nice dress and bringing her ice cream are pretty brave. :)  Then I got tons of excited smiles and hugs from former students.  One student said "the last time I saw you, you had a baby in you.  How's the baby?"  Haha!  (Remember, I taught at a freshman-only campus for four-years, so I've been seeing juniors and seniors who haven't seen me since I was pregnant with Morgan.)  And one student from last year ran up and hugged me and said, I've been LOOKING for your classroom, Mrs. Kimble!" 

This is one of the many reasons I love my job.  Every year I have a twinge of guilt because I'm so strict on my students, but days like this is when I know I'm doing something right. What a way to kick off the school year.

Morgan also had a great week in her new class.  She REALLY loves her teachers and loves being with all her friends.  Her new class has Show 'n Tell every Friday.  She's been in this new class for two weeks, and guess how many times I've forgotten her Show 'n Tell toy.  TWICE.  Mom of the Year, I know.  Thankfully she's not at an age where she actually knows that her mommy screwed up. I won't forget this week. I've put all kinds of reminders on my calendar.  One new thing she's learned in this class is how to say her alphabet backwards.  And I'm having to learn to say them from her because I never learned to say the alphabet backwards.  Did you?

Anyway, I'm gearing up for Week 2 of my crazy fall life (mama, football coach's wife, teacher, student). I've written a post for tomorrow night on my 30 Day Shred update.  I've felt so bad that my blog hasn't been getting much attention that I wrote several mini-posts over the weekend that I'll schedule to post every other day or so for the next couple of weeks.  I take pics all the time -- mostly from my phone -- that I need to put in my scrapbook (this blog).  So that's what I plan to do in my mini-posts.  My life is about to be crazy the next few months, so I have a feeling my blog will be full of these mini-posts.

Speaking of football, the season is practically here!  Danny's been a football coach basically the entire time I've known him, and every year my excitement is even bigger than the year before.  Morgan is ready, too:

I found this great girl through my hairdresser that makes team-inspired flip flops and bows for little girls (or any color you want -- doesn't have to be a team). They are so cute (and her prices are unbeatable).  Email me if you want her info.  I've also gotten Morgan a few outfits for the season.  Found a couple of super inexpensive treasures at the consignment shop and had them personalized, and then I've hit up the Facebook sales hosted by those children's boutiques.  (Have you tried those?  ADDICTIVE.  Super cute stuff.)

These are for Friday nights -- Go Jags!

And these are for Saturdays -- Roll Tide!

Have a good week!
