January 2016

Football season turned out to be a fun one...and a sad one at the Gray house. Aiden's team made it to the playoff, but lost to the team I like Go Panthers!!
During the game Aiden changed the channel and I asked why? He told me "I'm sick of seeing you smile!"
But he was happy for awhile and especially when the Cardinals made it to the playoffs.

During the playoffs.....we started out happy but ended up sad. Except me Go Panthers!!

April 22nd Grandma left on her mission and I was the lucky girl that got to drive her back to Nauvoo.
Why everyone thought sending me and my Mom off (as I am directionally challenged) were crazy....but we made it safe and sound!
We had to send the girls proof we were filling up :)

We drove clear across Nebraska in one day

Headed off to Nauvoo for Mom to report to her mission

Aiden and Mrs. Hunter

Collin and all his class friends. He had always been in the classroom part time and in Special Ed centers the other half. In 5th grade I decided to have in Special Ed all day and it was the best decision. He became a leader and helper to all the kids in his class, it was great for his self esteem.

The best and worst teacher gift ever!!

Aiden's first year playing baseball.

Collin went to the doctor and was very upset that he couldn't get a shot. So the doctor started looking and we realized he actually did!
