Five for Friday: Check out my Giveaway before it’s over!!



I am linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for Five For Friday!



WOW!! I honestly can’t believe that today is JULY 1st!!

I know that some of you have only been out of school for a little while.

Fortunately, I’ve been able to rest up from school for a month now!

This past week my son and his wife took a little trip to the western side of Europe and visited Prague, Vienna and Budapest!

Daniel Anna Europe


While they were on their little adventure, being the AWESOME grandparents that we are…….

We kept our granddog named TALMADGE!!


Isn’t he adorable!?! I’ve often told Daniel and Anna that he needs to go to Hollywood and get discovered!!

Believe it or not, he is part Jack Russell, Bichon, and Chihuahua..

I just LOVE his white eyebrows!!

It’s been great having him at our house this week!


Next week, is my annual trip to Wales where people from my church and another church in Mansfield, TX go on mission.

We travel to the southern part of Wales.

There are close to 70 of us going this year!

During the day, we break up into teams and help around different communities.

I’m a part of the schools team. The schools in Wales do not get out for their holiday until a couple of more weeks.

We get to go into local schools and have a 30 minute assembly.

Last year our theme was How to Be a Super Hero. We have the best time going into these schools and ministering to them!

Seeing how schools for other countries operate is a lot of fun and I learn so much!!

Here is a pic of our schools team from a couple of years ago. Our theme that year was Rocks!!

At night the choir part of our team, sing in a gospel program at various churches in the area.

It is an awesome trip for sure!

We leave on Sunday for this year’s mission trip!!
