Back with a Giveaway!!!

See...I knew that you wouldn't be so mad at me for not writing all week if I came back with something special for you to win!

Just a little update on me and my life....

-This past week was the first week of school!! I have 15 DARLING fourth graders and it was a great week!
-On Thursday morning, I found out that my great grandfather passed away. This was sad for our family but....he lived a loooong 92 years and we knew that this day would come soon. you know...things like this are always hard. He was a wonderful man, teacher, and christian and will definitely be missed!
-My parents are coming to see us today! I am so excited! We go home so often that there is never really a need for them to come see us! So's their turn! And my little brother has his FIRST college soccer game in Fort Worth this we are all going to watch him play!
- It has been an exhausting week!!!!

Now...onto the giveaway!!!
