Back 2 School

10 years ago, I was about half way thru my Education degree and I chose without regret to put it on hold and devote my everything into being a full time mom. Now that they are all a bit older and the timing felt right, as well as the feeling of needing to "being prepared" has intensified, I have returned to "college". I am taking on line classes at WGU to finish the last year and 1/2 of my Education degree. I am so very excited and motivated! But whoa it's a lot of work for a dusty brain. No, this is not a coloring page by my sweet four year old..Its my homework assignment of the life cyle of a frog..huh???

The Russell Rockers!

I have TRYING to get the kids to do some kind of cute group costume for Halloween. We could never come up with something that everyone could happily be. This year we thought three little pigs (the 3 girls) and the BIG BAD WOLF (Zane) would great! Well, little miss Tawni Lane said
"noooo way" when she checked out the pig nose. So, as you see we became a rock band..well not me "I am with the band". They were cute and had a lot of fun! Happy Halloween!

Moving back, barely intact~

We recently moved back from TX back to GA. Upon arrival, as we slowly raised the door on the Uhaul...this was the first thing I saw. My beloved beautiful front load washing machine shattered contorted & twisted did not survive the trip to say the least. I did not know if I should laugh or cry so I opted for both. I couldn't help but think if it as a symbol of the last 7 or 8 months. Its a long story but here's the jist! We absolutely loved TX!!!! Unfortunately the business deal turned out well, quite similar to my washing machine~we'll leave it at that. We know God has a plan and will guide us as we make it thru the spin cycle! We very much loved Texas, and were sad to leave so soon but of course are happy to be back "home" with our friends and family~
