Carmen’s Thoughts – Decisions

Life was so much easier when people made my decisions for me. Except nowadays when people try to tell me what to do, I get upset and don’t want to do what they tell me to do. Is this adulthood? I have always been a people-pleaser. When I was a kid, I was a teacher’s… Continue reading Carmen’s Thoughts – Decisions

Finding Joy

I have never been busier, much to my dismay–ha.   I love that I have an opportunity to work with preschoolers and children.  Loving on them is easy.  Time management is harder.  I have to be organized with daily activities, and events.  Big events seem to come easier than the day to day tasks.  I… Continue reading Finding Joy

They listen to me, and let me… Continue reading Mother’s Day

Auburn War Eagle Day

Over our spring break, we decided to take Carmen to War Eagle Day at Auburn.  Classes were in session, and it is a good first look at Auburn University.  She has lots of choices.  Carmen is a good student, and will be able to choose where she wants to go.  Now if only she knew… Continue reading Auburn War Eagle Day

Carmen participated in The Cotillion this year again.  It is a formal dinner dance held at the Emerald Coast Conference Center on Friday evening. They enjoy a dinner, and an orchestra for dancing.  They practice dances such as swing, salsa, tango, and waltz throughout the year, and then have the opportunity to show off their… Continue reading Carmen’s and Stephen’s Spring Ball
