MLK Day! How did you celebrate? We didn't, we had school but Cora told me that he gave a speech about a dreeeeaaaammm! lol Crazy girl.

The Fog! Wow it was heavy this morning driving the bus. It was scary. I also about missed my turn off to Vest Ranch. It did clear up some as we got into town, but not much. I love driving the bus! Some of you are thinking no way, but I enjoy seeing those kids every morning. I have my little route that I do and I am usually done by 4:30.

Maybe I get the "Shop Boys" to fix me up a PIMP Bus like the ones below!!:

Here is my van I want!!! maybe not yellow but light baby blue!!! heck yeah...

Today was a long day, teaching basketball to the entire K-3rd is tough! But again 'I love it!' I don't think they do anymore because we aren't shooting. All we do is ball-handling & dribbling right now. I think their legs get tired and plus they are out of breath! Getting 2nd & 3rd grade to perform at half-time of the Varsity Girls/Boys game on Jan. 28th. Its not gonna be PIP show but it will be awesome. I hope!

After school, I did my bus route AGAIN (yes, twice a day). Then I headed to the gym to work clock for JH & 9th grade Girls Basketball games. I have gotten pretty good at, keeping up with player fouls & player # who fouled & AND... how to turn off the Time-out that seems to go off with 15 seconds left in a quarter!!! So stinkin' proud!!! Now the fans won't yell at me (yea right) and the officials & coaches won't look at me crazy!!! Plus I work w/my sister & Ginger Wilson. These two girls know how to make you laugh!!! But I laugh at them on how mad they get watching girls play basketball...

After the games, I attended a Woman's Bible Study and have enjoyed it. But I feel like I need to not talk so much at it...lol. But I will be honest, I have kind of lost touch with God/Jesus. Had a great youth & youth Ministers'. I went off to college and went occasionally but not like I should. Got married & now I have kids. I am trying to be the example my mom was to us by taking us to church. She was a little better at than me. We will make it to church but hair may not be brushed and lucky the kids have on clothes! lol My mom had us dressed to a 'T'! Hair curled, dressed nice, panty-hose (oh I how I hate them things!). But we went, she would drive us all the way from Estelline in her little red Dotson 2 door car w/four kids! Moms rock!

After the study, I came home to my little girl asleep on the couch and a lil' man hiding trying to scare me!!! So He & I went a got bathes and off to bed to watch "2 Fast & 2 Furious." He loves those movies... thank goodness we have encore for free this month, so we can record it to DVR!

Most of the time he pretends he is asleep and scares!!!

Cora had a great day at school. Jantz didn't have school, he was a lazy bum all day... & Botos...yes he was at the Baseball field. He had those boys working hard getting ready for their season. Also, they are selling Bobcat Baseball "Fan Wear" if you are interested let me know.

Until next time...Mamabotos

Week 2 of 2011

A long week it was! You know baseball season is about to start when Botos heads to Baseball Clinic in Waco, Tx. I am excited about this season. Last season was great, but I have a feeling this season might be just a little bit better. Who knows!

Botos has gotten big into Bow Hunting. He is addicted to a Bow hunting website like I am to Facebook! lol I did go sit the ground blind with him, just one time. He said I move around to much. I never go invited back. But hunting season this year was good to us. I started off with bang and I guess you could say I ended it with a bang. I never went back out after the two hunting trips...lol. First hunt, shot two does. Second hunt, 8 pt Buck. For Christmas, my husband and European mounted my buck (he did it himself) on to a Texas shaped out of wood. It looks sharp & yes it hangs in my living room!

School week was great. In PE, I have been teaching Basektball. We started off with dribbling & ballhandling. This week we will add passing. I have 2nd & 3rd grade performing on Jan. 28th, Friday, at the Varsity Girls/Boys half-time games. It is also CES night for all elementary kids!!! Packed house.

Botos was gone to WAco from Thurs-Sat. He enjoys seeing all the other baseball coaches, teammates from college, and talk baseball. He always has a good time. So the kids and I got to hang out. Also, Thursday, I attended a Women's Study Group. It was awesome!!! I am so thankful for the ladies who got this going. It is just what the Dr. order for me.

Saturday was a wonderful day. The kids and I slept in and then we headed out to the Stock show. I am impressed with kids that take the time to prepare their animals for this. So much hard work & dedication go into this. Plus the kids get to see the animals. We always have a good time. After we left there, we stopped by to see Pappy. He had asked the kids "how they do?' meaning them, if they entered in the show! lol. Asked Jantz if won the Chicken show!!! Jantz just started squawking like a chicken. Crazy kids!!! But they love their Pappy. After wards, Mammy had the girls spend the night. They played dress up! clothes were every where. We are so blessed to have such great grandparents!!!

Sunday has been a wonderful day. Botos cooked lunch and now he is off getting his deer feeders ready for next season. Kids have been doing their chores and playing wii games. I have been cleaning the kitchen and doing laundry. Why do I let the laundry pile up all week long. It would be easier to do 2 loads a day. Easier said than done. Hanging out with the kids, still need to go grocery shopping, & finish up the laundry.

Oh, the whole Dave Ramsey thing is working out! Its so awesome, Botos & I are on the same page with the spending. I am anxious to see how this month goes!

Until next time...Mamabotos
