nap. It wasn’t a long one, but long enough for the Rangers to lose their lead in the game. I actually had to have a light blanket it is just a tad chilly today. The rain we had last week is a history lesson, but the next few weeks should see a change in our little part of the world. Unfortunately, it will be too late for the bluebonnets. Still, this cool will be welcome in a few weeks!
Field day was great. I love that new stadium at Zephyr. I know they made quite a few dollars in their concession stand. I presume they charge us for using the stadium as well. The track surface proved to be good for my barefoot kids. They chucked their shoes and ran like scalded cats!! We brought home quite a few first place ribbons. I wasn’t too sure how we were going to come out. It’s been a busy few weeks, and we haven’t been out practicing very much at all. Some of our older Coyotes were encouraging the younger ones to keep up the winning tradition. Much to everyone’s disgust, we returned soon enough to turn in homework, I’m proud to say we didn’t leave a mess for the cleaning crew.
We had a good turnout for the ballot on the school. Both school bond issues in San Saba County failed, but the mixed drink people are happy.
End of school activities are at fever pitch. We missed teacher appreciation week because of the business, but we appreciate all they do for our kids. I will be headed for Germany on the 31
The First Christian Church is having choir practices for the Baccalaureate service next week. The songs are easy, so please come and be a part of this wonderful community offering to our graduates. We need a few more altos and men, since I am a lousy choir alto. The committee members are still accepting donations for the Paul Gibson fundraiser on the 21
I hope we will be ready to display our science projects by Wednesday. The kids are working hard, and I like the thought processes that are being used. I’m not sure how many of you remember science experiments, but I can tell you from my point of view that they are stressful for student and teacher. I don’t even want to know how much stress they produce at home!
Clara Wash is doing well with her therapy. She is determined to get home and willing to work to achieve that goal. Way to go Clara! Lucille Draper’s sister, Billie, underwent surgery last week and is doing better. Funeral services will be held for T.A. Wilton in San Saba at the Episcopalian Church on the morning of the 21
I hope everyone has a good week. I pray that time will heal all the hurt feelings that the bond and drinking issues have caused. We have a wonderful community, and we care for our kids. I thank God for the rain, and pray we can get a little more. Please pray for our government, our President, and our precious troops and their families. God bless America, home of the brave and the free.
st, but we are still going to have our usual Friday luncheon on the 27th. Typically we head over to my house, eat a meal provided by community members, then head back to clean up. The meal is still in the planning, but I haven’t done much planning. Kay McKee is going to help me with that area. If you want to provide a dish for the teachers, please let either of us know. Brother Barry has volunteered to provide all the meat, so we just need desserts and side dishes. This year is especially poignant since we will be losing Kathy Brockman to a life of retirement ease. None of us are looking forward to her leaving. She is a light in everyone’s day. She worries, loves and cares for your kids every moment of the day. Teaching is not an eight hour job. It is a lifetime of mothering and caring for children. I can’t imagine next year without Kathy.st of this month. The fundraiser will be an all day roping, auction, dinner, and general community get together. The Baccalaureate will be Sunday the 22nd at 6:00pm. The next time you see George and Donna Hill, you might wish them happy anniversary.st. Joey Hardman is under a doctors care for a roping accident. The doctors are trying to determine the extent of his injuries. We extend our prayers to him for a speedy recovery.
