so, a couple weekends ago, I took Blake and Emma to get their pictures taken by Hope, a girl I went to high school with. We went down to Heritage Park and although, it felt like 185% humidity out there, we had a great time and she got some VERY good shots. This, once again, got my interest sparked back up to taking some photography classes and doing photography as a side job, which I have always loved and wanted to do. So, I signed up for one class that will be next Thursday, Sept. 2nd. After that one, I can sign up for more, which I will be doing. This is going to be great and I am VERY excited about this opportunity to do something I LOVE. Here are some pictures that I have taken and edited....

Well, it's going on the 3rd day of school now and Blake has done really well. He wouldn't ride the bus because the bully being in his class all day and then he would have to ride the bus with him and the bus was where all the trouble was last school year, so he decided to do extended day and go to before school and after school and avoid the bus all together. It's been fun for him. He gets to watch a movie in the morning and in the afternoon, he can read (which he loves) or play on the computer and he is lovin that. Already studying for 3 tests on Friday (they waste no time). All in all, it's been a great week for him so far and I am happy about that. He has a little girl in his class that is in childrens church with him on Sundays and she told her mom that she and her friend were going to watch Blake and the bully and if he messed with Blake in class, they were going to tell the teacher, so atleast he has a couple kids he can count on to watch his back. The teacher is great, very sweet. I can only hope now that when she goes on maternity leave in 3-4 weeks, they will get a good substitute teacher....time will tell....

so last night, Blake and I went to meet his teacher and see if he knew any of his classmates. He knows one little girl that goes to our church and then, of course, two boys that bullied him around last year just happens to be in class with him this year. OH NO!!! Blake was terrified. He would not come from behind me and while I was sitting in the chair filling out paperwork, he stayed like glue next to my arm or ducked behind my shoulder. Why did they have to be in this class??? I feel so bad for him. He was so scared. I tried to get him to say hello to them and he said "no, I'm scared" and I asked him why and he said, "they will hurt me and beat me up." That just breaks my heart. He finally gets a good teacher this year and can't be really happy about it because of the bullies. GOD HELP HIM, be with him and give him strength and peace to make it through each day.
