She Can Sing Too!

video

Not only is she a dancer, she likes to sing too! She uses my Guitar Hero guitar as a microphone while she belts out a tune like an Asian Carrie Underwood! If you listen carefully you'll hear her stop and give a shout out to her audience, which is made up of one of our Labs, "Bih-Bit", and make mention of the fact that she has to poo poo!

Crazy Oklahoma Weather....





Only in Oklahoma, in a span of 13 days, can you get single digit temperatures, a major ice storm, 80 degree highs, and thunderstorms and tornados! Yesterday for the first time in my twenty year teaching career, we had to take tornado precautions at school. There were several waves of tornadic activity that we were right in the middle of. One hit only two miles south of the school and damaged businesses along one of our main roads, NW Expressway. Another one destroyed or damaged some large home in Edmond (NE of us). The most serious one hit southern Oklahoma and there were 8 deaths. In Oklahoma we deal with the threat of severe weather often, but usually it's April - July, not in February. We are all okay. A friend of our's in-laws lost their home in Edmond. We did have a ton of hail at our house (as you can see from the photos) and Emma kept repeating "snow, snow". Let's hope this storm is an isolated outbreak and not a pre-curser for what type of spring/summer we're going to have!

This Is What Happens...






when you allow a not quite two year old to eat yogurt unsupervised! Apparently she thought it was some sort of edible hair gel or shampoo! We gave her some yogurt as a snack while we were canning dill pickles today. We were no more than 5 feet away from her, but got so wrapped up in our task that when I looked back to check on her she was wearing more yogurt than she had eaten! Oh well, she needed a bath anyway!
