Mark's First 2-A-Day

It was an early morning for my little guy today. He was up at 6:00 a.m. and out the door by 6:40 to head to the football field. I dropped him off and headed to work. I couldn't tell if he was nervous or not but I suspect he might have been. All morning I watched the clock wondering what he and his teammates were doing. Was he drinking enough water? Was he being careful with his glasses?

Finally 11:30 arrived and I left to go pick him up. He walked to the car looking so tired. I asked him how it went and he said "it was horrible". But he didn't seem defeated. He said he was starving and wanted a burger to eat. So we went to grab some food and then I took him home, administered some Aleve to him, told him to take a cool shower after he finished eating and promised to call and check on him soon and headed back to work. I called to check on him about an hour later and he said he felt much better. The first 2-A-Day is in the books, now he just has to get through 6 more!

Vote for Mark Ingram!

I have been lazy and still haven't moved all my stuff from my old blog over to here and I haven't posted anything in a while. I still don't have all the links working and I haven't edited and added my pictures yet.

But....I stopped what I was doing today to add this video of one of my favorite Bama players of all time - Mark Ingram. He is a finalist to be on the cover of NCAA Football 2012. The video is so cute and he is so adorable! Watch the video and then vote for him by clicking HERE! Think about it, do we really want Nick Fairley on the cover?! No, I didn't think so!!

Roll Tide!

I am moving....

I am in the process of moving all my posts from my old blog over to this one. And I am still formatting all of the links and stuff on here too. I had hoped to have it finished before now, but some formatting issues and that darn thing called life keeps getting in the way!

Maybe I will have everything finished before the kids graduate high school! 

Stay tuned....

Mark got Student of the Month!

Today was a really great day! Mark came home on Monday with the news that he was chosen as Student of the Month by his reading teacher! He was given a little invitation to the "Breakfast of Champions" where he and 2 adults are invited to attend a breakfast at the school.

We arrived at the school and went into the gym and found a really nice little breakfast laid out. There were fruit and cheese danishes, bananas, strawberries and grapes, breakfast pound cake, mini blueberry muffins and mini cinammon pinwheels. They also had orange juice, water and Starbucks coffee! Mark had 2 plates of food and really liked the pound cake. The cheese danishes were really good too.

The school Jazz Band was there and they were really good! I mean really impressive!

We sat down at the table and ate our breakfast and then Mark's teacher joined us. We talked about how well Mark was doing and she said he had transitioned really well in the short time he had been at the school. She said he had gotten caught up to where the rest of the class was and that he had been working really hard. Whew! That was so good to hear!

The principal presented the certificates by grade and then each grade gathered together for a group picture to be hung in the office and also to be sent out in the school newletter that we get in the mail.

I could tell Mark was very proud of his accomplishment. His Dad and I were beyond excited and proud of him!

Congratulations buddy! Your Dad and I love you and are so very proud of you! Keep up the good work!

Love, Mom
