Ok, so we have been religiously watching the Olympics and it has been entertaining. We were just watching the trampoline....yes, I did say the trampoline. Dave has decided that he idolizes Dong Dong from China and his techniques. You may hear soon that Dave no longer is in the Air Force but a professional trampolinist!! He was impressed.

We have been working on the house lately. We have cleaned up outside (last weekend) and today we are going to work on the garage. We will have to get the carpet done soon since Sarah's dog (Tipsy) ate a good chunk out of the carpet in the spare bedroom, not cool. Carpet is EXPENSIVE in case anyone did not know. Ay yi yi!!!!

Hopefully by next month we will finally have a fence!!!!!!!!!! The dogs will be SOOOO happy as well as the humans in the house. It will be so nice to not have to worry about any exciting dog escapades. Yes, Sully did BREAK through his metal chain to go play with a walking dog. Good dog fun but not so much for us. Now this picture is not him, but this is how Sully looks when he is running. Slightly scary to people who do not know him...

I have started school, we are now entering our 3rd week!!! Crazy for those of you who have not even started yet, I know. We have started molding our kids. It is always so hard at the beginning of the year. And it is the MOST important part of our teaching, making sure we are consistent and sincere.

This past week I introduced a new student to the classes. He doesn't have a name yet and he is only 3 weeks old. The kids have fallen in love already. This is just another way to teach them life skills and responsibility. Here he is....I will let you know when the kids vote/decide on him name.

In case you are wondering we are working on Data Analysis at school, this is Unit 1. If any of you find some good graphs/charts/etc. in the newspaper or in an advertisement I would love for you to send them to me. I have been able to get the ones out of the Valdosta Times, but those of you who live in the big cities may have some better options. Please send to: 2379 Copeland Road, Valdosta, GA 31601 as soon as you can!!! THANKS :-)
