Pre-school Worker

I've started Subbing at my church Preschool.  It is a big leap of Faith for me. 
I haven't worked for many years.  I'm hoping and prayerful for a 3 day a week spot next school year.  Nate even had the teacher that I would love to replace.  She is gonna go be a G'ma full-time for 2 grandbabies.  It would be such a joy and blessing to be able to start working again without going downtown for an Accounting spot.  I am willing to work and have been truly blessed to stay home with my boys and volunteer all my hours.  But...we moved...we could use more $$ for taxes and fees and gas for the carpool so off to work I go.  I am humbled that the Lord would use me again outside the home.  And, I'm over~joyed that  I may get a spot so close to home, easy for me to accomplish, exactly fits our needs, not interupting my home duties.  Esp. because it is my beloved church, all the preschool songs and activities still live in my heart from when the boys went thru it. 
Yes, Lord...I am a willing servant...even still.

I have it in me to do all of this again. 
I just have to trust the Lord to keep me strong and creative. lol

I can do all things thru Christ who strengthens me. ~Phil 4:13

Moody Gardens Aquarium

My birthday had a wonderful suprise this year. 
Naters had been sick all week and his fever finally broke.  He couldn't go to school yet so he and I made a precious memory together...
We went to Moody Gardens Aquarium in Galveston, TX.
This is a HUGE complex of areas to explore and we just did 1 activity.  They are about to re-open the Rain Forest pyramid shown here.  It was such a beautiful day too.
We had a membership for 1 year about 4 years ago and this was a fun rememberance of those days.
I thought the penguins would be the show stoppers but they napped the whole time we were there.
There was a touch tank and a hands off tank full of sea stars, anemonies and the like. 
Every color...who can imagine such beauty under the water??
God called the dry ground “land,” and the gathered waters he called “seas.” And God saw that it was good. Genesis 1:10
Who was awake and much fun to behold...the seals!! 
They had a ball they were throwing around and dive bombing. lol
This gal was a hoot!!
She would swim back and forth between 3 tank view windows for all the kids and cameras.  You couldn't see her until she was right up on the window and she loved the drama.
Can you see the White Sea Horse??  Amazing!
They are crazy, glorious creatures!
I could have sat in here for an hour!  Sharks, schools of fish.  Big and little all around.  It reminded me of the mural in the boys playroom for many years.  They had an Arctic Adventure theme.  Now that we've moved and nearly every single room is painted boring beige...I gotta come up with something cool, right.
I had a could I resist this inspiration in the girls bathroom?? 
This would be cool in a kids bath or the floor of a pool,
it got my wheels spinning.
Finding Nemo flashback. lol
See the 2 Blowfish that look like the rocks. lol

That's all Folks!!

Opening Day Little League

This year I got towards the end of the parade instead of the front.  Here comes the lead Fire truck making noise, honking and flashing his lights. lol  All the kids and families line the streets to catch the candy as it is thrown off the floats by players.  They are always begging for the candy back by the end of the route.
I thought this golf cart pulling the trailer was cool!

 How did this team get a San Fran trolley car??  How awesome!
 This Liberty bell belongs to a local church and weighed tons.
 This is our Phillies team!!
 Gotta love this truck..the big Dawgs. lol
 Gotta love a John Deere tractor in the middle of all the red with a TeePee for the Braves.
 They all end back up on the big field and circle the infield and wait for their team to be announced.

Let's Play Ball!!

Seasonal Sunday post anticipating a terrific Little League season!!
