This or That

My daughter is having some trouble with digraphs.  So, today, after the word “this” was giving her some trouble, I decided to solve it with music.  We listened to a little Black Sheep and ran from the word “this” to the word “that.”

Dance Party in between words.

You can deal with this or you can deal with that



Panic Without a Disco

When I was a kid growing up in Houston, I thought hurricanes were fun.  Hurricane Alecia actually lifted me up in the air for a couple seconds, a fact my mom swears is not true.

Now, years later, hurricane + kids of my own= anxiety/panic attack. 20170825_160248

We evacuated an hour and a half ahead of Harvey.  It was windy and raining when we left; I almost turned back.  I’m so glad we kept going all the way to Dallas.  All nine hours in the car with three dogs, a cat, and my kids.  It was worth it.

Now, we have a downed fence and some shingle damage.  We were lucky.

It has taken me a bit to get back into the swing of things, mentally.



On a positive note, my youngest had a blast on the carousel in the mall.
