Mini Golf

We took Rachel to Mini Golf. It was such a cool evening with a breeze!



 This guy is too funny!
 Next to the golf course was some animals...
 The the ducks made a dash for the goat hut!
 The first brave duck checking things out. The others waiting for the okay!
 The goats up on the bridge thinking "Hey wait a minute were up here and the ducks are down there in OUR hut!"
 They had a lot of wood carvings. This is us with a Nitney Lion smelling the flowers!

The Potter's Palette

Rachel and I went to paint some pottery in the afternoon. Rachel picked a mug. 

  I picked a set of coasters. I like the metal holder it comes with. Very cute!
 Then we choose our paint and started painting.
 You have to give your painting 3 coats to get rich colors after it is glazed.
 I was slow and I was talking to the owner Bethany. She is so sweet!
 Rachel completed hers!

 Rachel's is done.
 It  takes about 3 days to get back. 
They glaze and fire it for you and then you pick it up when it is ready!
I only finished one side so I am going back next week to finish mine. 
We had a great time it was so calm and peaceful and relaxing! 
Very enjoyable! Highly recommend and there are great pieces for the kids!

 She was such a big help, punching out animals for me! Thanks girlie!

The Fair: I go for the food!

Tuesday August 9th 2011
My niece is visiting this week and we took her to the County Fair. I love the food! 
 Pizza! YUMMY!
 Funnel Cake YUMMY!
 Okay so I am sad to say I am not an animal lover. I love to look at animals from a far. I am also allergic to anything with fur. That could be a little reason why I'm not into animals!
My neice however LOVES animals!
 M feeding the goats. They are so cute and I don't sneeze too much!
 This guy just made me laugh. He looks so silly. So serious. Your a goat!
 This cow loves to lick your hands. Not mine of course I took photos from a far.
 I have never seen anyone pet a cow.
 At most county fairs and fairs in the North there are RV's and Motor homes/ trailer on display. Well M and I have been thinking about one. I fell in love with this one. Do I look like I'm in a RV?
 My TV and fire place.
It would be sweet to be traveling the country in comfort. Thoughts?
We are going to be doing some more investigating!

My name is...

Well, I guess I am Mrs. Heck?!? So as most of you know I am changing teaching jobs. I am no long teaching Pre-K where they call me Miss. Amanda. Now, I am Mrs. Heck. When I first got introduced as Mrs. Heck I was confused. Oh yeah I guess I am Mrs. Heck. Now, Ladies and Gentlemen I have been married going on 5 years. You would think I knew what my last name was... No! So, on my door is now theses cute little letters to remind me I am Mrs. Heck.
 I have about 40 kids in school that know me as Miss. Amanda. We will all have to adjust!
 Target Dollar Spot Makes me weak at the knees! I found these cute Dr. Seuss 1 fish 2 fish Red Fish Blue Fish buckets that fit into my Ocean theme in my classroom! AWESOME!
Here is one of my bulletin boards There is a real book on my board.
I put push pins below the book to hold it up! 
(the glare from the lights makes it hard to read)
"Sink your teeth into a good book!"
LOVE IT!
