In case you haven't noticed, there is an additional child in our family photo. I would like you all to meet the newest member of our family. She is the pretty little 7 year old in the purple dress. "Eloise" now has a little sister. We have decided to call her, "Amelia Bedelia".

Thanks To My Wonderful Family......

Without the support of my husband and daughter, I wouldn't have made it this far. Tonight I received my Associate of Science in Teaching degree. With their encouragement I should be able to finish the requirements for my Bachelor's degree as well.

P.S. Eloise won 2nd place in the 3rd grade Poetry category for the entire Parish & her little friend also won for her grade level. Way to go girls!
