I'm a single mom with two great kids living near Dallas, Texas. This is my life; day to day things that are probably only important to me. This is my record of my ups, my downs and the road that I've taken along the way. For whatever reason YOU'RE here, I hope you find something you can enjoy and/or relate to. God bless.

First Day

...and it begins. Another school year. All the clothes have been bought, Casey cut all of his summer hair off and Charlie has a closet full of jeans, jean jackets and black band tee's. It's on. This is Casey's senior year of high school. Charlie is now a sophmore and for the first time in six years, the boys will be at the same school again. There's only one other thing to give you...pictures. Yeah, Mikey...I'm such a mom. :)

Casey after getting his 'cut' yesterday...but before the shave that took place this morning.

Charlie and his friend, Keith, having their 'last supper' before school starts.

Life is good at the Bratcher home.

School starts early for you! Ours doesn't start until after Labor Day!

Are you going to be back to subbing, or has other employment been found?

Yanno...it's funny (totally off topic here) My kids went on vacation with their mother on Saturday, Emily went home to see her parents the same day, and all three of them called me yesterday to make sure I was functioning ok without 'em. I must be helpless or something.

Gosh... I can't get over how much
older Casey looks with the shorter hair. He is so handsome!
We start school next week.
I was quite sad last night realizing this is the last year
my son will be with us!
It just seems like yesterday when
he started kindergarden!
Take care!:)

You guys start school early. Ours here in PA don't start till end of August/early September. But I think you have more breaks.

Handsome guys you have there. Did they give that poor dog a bite?

Hi, i was looking over your blog and didn't
quite find what I was looking for. I'm looking for
different ways to earn money... I did find this though...
a place where you can make some nice extra cash secret shopping.
I made over $900 last month having fun!
