I also have had the privelege of leading a small group Bible study in my classroom on Thursday mornings before school. We decided to do the book "Do Hard Things: A Teenage Rebellion Against Low Expectations" by Alex & Brett Harris. I am so excited about this opportunity. I do not take it lightly that God has placed me in this public high school for His purpose, and hopefully He will use this study in these students lives, and in mine, to bring His message of hope to our school. We had 12 come last week and 6 this morning. I ordered 15 books, and I hope and pray they will all get read.
I hate baseball a little bit less since last weekend. One of Brian's players was chosen to be one of 16 high school boys in the Greater Houston area to attend an Astros Dinner and be honored at the dinner. So Jake's parents invited the three coaches and their wives/girlfriends, along with another family, to go with them to the dinner. They also rented a 16-passenger Excursion Limo that picked us up and took us all downtown to the Hilton for the dinner. I almost backed out because I had nothing fancy to wear and my hair has been sticking straight up at the part lately and I was just feeling homely. But I could tell Brian really wanted me to go and I also found out that Jake's parents paid $75 per ticket for us to all go. So needless to say, I was going. I got my hair cut, bought some hair wax to make my hair lay down and planned to go shopping at the mall for a dress.
Wearing a baseball hat was not what this princess had in mind that day. I forced her to put in on and smile for a picture. I gave her the line, "Do you know everything that I do for you? If you ask me for a snack, do I not give it to you? All I'm asking is for you to wear a hat and take a picture!" You can see the tears in her eyes.
Born for this hat.
Here we are before leaving to get on the Limo. Thank the Lord for very very tight undergarments that disguise certain things so very well.
For MLK day, we had fun family day in Brenham. We ate lunch at Must Be Heaven, which was such a good decision. It was heavenly. They also have a fun fireman's park that the girls could've spent hours at, but we only stayed for a while because we wanted to get to the Blue Bell Factory before it closed for the day.

This sweet girl was a little bit too polite with her cake. She will have to learn that K* girls don't eat chocolate sitting down...
