October is rocking right along!

The weather is crazy!  It's cold in the morning and hot as blazes in the hard to dress!  I did notice that the leaves are starting to change, the days are getting shorter and there is an occasional glimpse at fall like weather...I'm ready for it!

Atrox has been up and running for 3 weeks and the celebrities have been so much fun!  I've had 2 give me their phone numbers and invite me to stay with them in Los Angelas...who knows...I might take them up on was Dee Wallace and Lisa Loring...Dee was the mom in ET and Cujo and Lisa was Wednesday Addams...
Butch Patrick aka Eddie Munster
So today was one of my favorite events...the Buddy Walk...a walk to support the National Downs Syndrome Society...many teachers joined the team to walk in support of our 3rd grade friend, Korey.  He really likes catfish so our team name was Korey's was a beautiful day and I think children with Down's are possibly the most precious children in the world!

Love to all!

Happy Fall Y'all!!!

Wow!  I am the laziest blogger EVER!!!  Sorry for the lack of information...but I have been busy living life and enjoying most minutes of it...

Let's see if I can get you all caught up...

Got serious about being fit this year...started in March with Scale Back Alabama and I continue to work at it...have lost 40 lbs, hit the gym as much as I can and still watch what I eat...I have no clothes that fit me anymore...which is great, except I have no $ to buy new ones and now I kinda look pitiful...buying a few items at a time...will clean out my closet next weekend...

Had a GREAT time in New York this summer...worked hard and played hard...had 4 friends visit over the course of 2 weekends...saw 3 broadway shows...volunteered with the Operation Boathouse group and learned how to kayak and then taught how to kayak in the Hudson River...too much fun!  Lots of hard work in school but ended up with a 4.0 for the summer!  Working on my Master's project now and can't wait to start writing it up!  Working with regular ed students and special ed students in an art club atmosphere...they have paired off to collaborate on art projects of their is truly a great project and I LOVE Friday mornings more than anything else!  Morphed the idea from VSA Art Partners program and I'm working with them to develop teacher training materials for professional development opportunities!

School started the 1st week of August this year...we are completing our first 9 week grading period so that means we are 1/4 of the way through the year!

The haunted house season has begun...opening weekend at The Atrox Factory was small but fun...we have many celebrities coming in this year and as you know it is my job to keep them is the lineup...Scout Taylor Compton from Rob Zombies Halloween Remake.

Next weekend we have Dee Wallace...the mom from ET...she was also in Cujo, The Howling and some Rob Zombie movies...

Then we have Butch Patrick and Lisa Loring...also known as Eddie Munster and Wednesday Adams...they use to date...this should be fun!

Sid Haig is an interesting character...also appears in lots of Rob Zombie movies...

And last but not least, we have Brett Wagner...he was just in The Crazies
and Pass Time...big boy!

Don't let his looks fool you...I hear he is a big ol' teddy bear!

Football season is ROLLing right along and the Tide is strong!  Love, love, love this time of year!

Okay, I guess that gets you caught up with my what is going on with you?

Much love to you all!
