What, are you serious, school is starting already?!?!?! The Bigham Bunch had a great summer, but it seemed to FFFFLLLLLLYYYYYY by! The first day of inservice was today, and I have to say I was dreading it. It is going to be so awkward not having Flint on the same campus.... in the same district for that matter. For the last four years Flint and I have had lunch together everyday....so it is going to be a little weird this year in that realm, too. I almost cried in one of our meetings today, because I am so use to seeing his name next to mine on all the paperwork, that when I didn't see it...I guess it kind of hit me...wow, he really is not going to be here. I know I sound like a whiner, but it really was fun to have each other on the same campus. When I tell most people that we worked together and ate lunch together everyday they would comment..."Don't ya'll get tired of each other...that would drive me crazy...I could never work with my spouse." I loved it! I guess because I rarely see him during football season it was nice to have that time together. It was also great to have someone to go and vent to, talk to, get a smile from when I was having one of those bad days. I do have some great friends that I work with that hopefully will make my year more bearable, as well as, my sweet kiddos that I work with. So...let's just pray that this year ZOOMS by like summer did, and maybe Flint and I will end up at the same school next year....until then...I am just going to make the best of it and TRY to be positive, I know God has a reason for me to be where I am at! To all my teacher family and friends - Have a great school year!

This last month has been extremely busy for the Bigham Bunch! Flint has gone to coaching school in San Antonio, and when he was there Bitty Girl and I went to Houston to spend time with Amby and Brayden. The kids had a blast playing with each other and Amby and I had a great time hanging out and catching up with one another. We took the kids to see Despicable Me, and to the Houston Zoo where we met up with Barb, Chloe and Caroline. It was great to see them and all the kids had a great time, yet the adults were A LOT HOT! I had forgotten how humid Houston was....but I certainly remember NOW! After we got home, then all the party playing was on. Berklie's bday dinner on the 21st with Braughn's bball game that night, her party was the 24th, then Gehrig's was the 31st...then that night I met up with the Tarkington girls for dinner and a catch up, and then Berklie's friend Alex was on the 1st. Sooooo....we have been busy! Here are some pics to let you in our hectic life! Enjoy! Sorry about eh verticle pics not being turned....sad to say but I'm too lazy at this point of the summer.....lol.
"Let's go to the zoo!"
"Ready to go?"

Having our "picnic" at the zoo....as much of a picnic as you can have with two 2 year olds and two 1 year olds. Ha-ha!

This was the cutest thing! It was a tunnel through the aquarium. They could have stayed there all day!
Not sure what they were looking at, but Caroline was not interested! LOL!
The two little monkeys.
While we were in Houston, Berklie taught Brayden how to climb in and out of his crib. You're welcome Aunt Amby. Wink-wink!

"Oooo...look at that one Brayden!"
We ate at Pasado's for Berklie's bday and they sand to her and made her wear this.
She was so cute! I think she thought it would fall off, so she didn't move the entire time that they sang to her.
