East Cobber Parade

 The girls and I got to ride in the East Cobber Parade this year.  It was so much more fun than I even imagined.  

Some of Elizabeth's Girl Scout troup walked in the parade too.

Bert was my chauffeur so my entire little family was all together.

This was at the end of the parade and so very typical.  I had sweat stains, Elizabeth was searching hard for more candy, and Caroline basically took a nap on the back of the car.... real life!
My sweet friend Alissa was there to cheer me on!

Football, Football, Football

Our Vols came to Atlanta to play GA Tech at the new Mercedes Benz Stadium.

We've been cheering on our Pope Greyhounds on Friday nights.

And Caroline's been cheering for the Junior Pope football team on Saturdays.

If there ever was a "natural" cheerleader, it's my girl Caroline!

One last boat trip on the lake

Soaking up the last bit of pool time

Aunt Hannah came to spend the weekend with us

We prayed over our precious 3rd graders at church as they received the confirmation bibles
These 3 cuties enjoyed cheer camp at Pope
Meet and Greet- Ms. Moffett 1st grade

Meet and Greet- Mrs. Herman 3rd grade

This made me smile at Elizabeth's Open House... love this girl!

We had our house painted and it turned out exactly how I imagined... relief!

Caroline is obsessed with her cowgirl boots and riding her bike.
The girls spent a lot of time in my classroom with me helping to get it ready to start school.

We had a Eclipse watch party at school

The football team started a new tradition this year where the seniors ask a teacher to wear their jersey on game day.  This awesome student asked me to wear his and it made my day!

Elizabeth and Brayden played on the train during the concert on the square.

Taking one of the 10 Falcons Mercedes for a spin:)

Being recognized as the TOTY at the football game was one of the most honoring experiences.  Hearing the students cheer so loudly in the stands about made me cry.
