Well, Zach and I celebrated our birthday on the 20th of September. We had Zach's party(and mine) at Nana's house. As you can see, Zach had a John Deere party.
And I had a fall party. :) The whole Robinson family was there for a delicious meal of hamburgers. (and of course Aunt Robbie and Uncle Steve Vance) Thanks Mom.

Zach really wasn't feeling the best. He had a double ear infection. Of course, he loved being with Daddy.

Look at this little work force! Let me tell you.....they really keep busy.

Look at me, me, me! I'm 2, 2, TWO and I really think I need a .....

John Deere Gator. Well, I didn't think so, but Daddy sure did.

Here we go for the ride of our life. Watch out! Here comes trouble.
Well, I have been so busy during the past month. After Zach's party, Joel took Zach and I to Branson for our family vacation. We really had a good time. I'll try to post some pictures of that soon.
I hope all is well for all of you. I'd like to hear from you guys. Have a great evening.

A Big Start!

This year I chose to decorate my school room with the nautical theme. The kids really like it---especially the Captain's collection. They like to shop in the school store with their points. Thanks goes to my mother-in-law for helping me! Also, several students helped me get it ready for the big day. I used to be able to work on my classroom for many days and many long hours. However, Zach came along and changed all of that. Now, I have to beg for help.

The viewing deck near the door is one of my favorite attractions on the PNA Cruiser.

My students enjoy getting treats from the canoe. Look! There are dolphins right outside the portholes.
Through the crab shack window in the back of the ship's cabin, more dolphins are leaping from the water.
We are going to put some pilings around the crab shack. We just haven't got it completed yet.

Michael and Ashlan are watching their 6th grade ABeka videos. They really work together well.

Here are the 5th graders watching their video for the day.

Well, school is off to a great start. The students are working hard! Today they enjoyed a short break from school. We were planning to go on field trip to the lake where they would be able to enjoy a ride on Brother Steve's boat. However, we were rained out. Instead, they got to go eat ice cream and play some games at school. They were good sports despite the change of plans.

This year we have 18 students. We will be getting two more next week making a grand total of 20. There are 17 in my learning center ranging from 1-1oth grades. Wow! Needless to say, I stay very busy. However, I have a great helper who helps me get all of that scoring done.

I planned to get some pictures from the first day, but I forgot my camera. We had parents and grandparents eat with students at a special back to school breakfast. Then they were invited up to the school to see the school and participate in the beginning of year activities. It all went well.
Well, I guess I should go. I just thought I would share a little about our school year so far. Have a great evening.

It sure is fun to mow the driveway......
I wish it was that easy to mow the lawn. This is too much work.
I'll just go rest with my Buff.
Well, we sure had a lot of visitors in Shreveport whether they wanted to be here or not. I've been busy keeping my sister and her family. My friend also called for a room, but I had to turn her away since I was already booked. I guess we are supposed to be getting quite a bit of rain from the storm. It hasn't made it here yet.
We are starting school this Wednesday. I hope it all goes well, and I hope that we have a great year. I'll try to get some pictures of the school and maybe some of the first day. I hope all goes well for you guys.
