Welcome to my little ol' blog. I'll be upfront about it: I don't blog very often any more. If you found your way here because you read my book "Trailer Life," have a gander! But it's easier to keep up with me on Instagram or on my Facebook page. I have this long, drawn out theory on why I'm a terrible blogger, but that is a story for another day. Enjoy the ramblings of my life from the last 8 years or so.

Student of the Month
Kacy was awarded the Student of the Month for her class today. Her teacher said some very nice things about Kacy, like she is a great student because she always pays attention, cares about her work, and cares about her classmates. She said she wished all her students could be more like Kacy. I feel sorry for Will. Will is going to do great in school, I know it. But, he's no Kacy. And, we have a very small school. And, there is that whole "Oh, you're Kacy's brother?" My younger siblings got that, and they didn't like it. Because no matter what, you just are never sure what the teacher is thinking, and most kids assume that they'll never measure up- think of Marcia and Jan Brady. I was very impressed with Will's behavior at the assembly, he was perfect. Unlike Ed. Anyway, Kacy's other two awards were both for perfect attendance for October and the quarter. The boy next to her got an award for most improved. His teacher said that at the beginning of the year he thought that being a good friend meant that he could touch a lot of the kids all the time. I was cracking up, because it's true. He's a very nice kid, but he couldn't keep his hands to himself. He'd tap his pencil on people and their papers and just bug the kids. He would tap them on the shoulder all the time. But he has gotten a lot better. Good job, Miss Kacy!
