About Me

Hi, my name is Angela and welcome to my blog. This is a place where I write about my life in an honest and open way.

I am 36 years old, single, and a Christian. God gave me a heart to work with children and so I spend my day teaching kindergarten. It is my fourth year teaching and although it is hard I love it. I currently go to a college for my BA in Elementary Education which keeps me busy. Between work and school there is not much time left but I enjoy serving and helping others, watching netflix, or reading a good book.

Davenport June 2012

Three posts in one day? A little crazy I know but I am trying to catch up.

This last weekend I flew to Davenport, IA part of the Quad Cities to go see my eldest nephew graduate. My dad and I flew out on Thursday afternoon, with the time change we arrived in the evening. This was a feet for my dad as he does not like the TSA. In fact I am surprised he made it home since the Moline airport now uses those fancy full size xray machines. I believe the Phoenix airport has them too but we out of the Mesa airport. It saved us $200 each so it was worth the extra thirty minute drive each way.

So thursday evening we arrived ate dinner, watched a movie, and then headed to bed. I picked the movie, The Last Airbender. All last week I had been watching M. Night Shyamalan movies. On Monday I started with The Happening, The Village, and Unbreakable. Then Tuesday I watched Signs and Sixth Sense. Wednesday night I watch Lady in the Water. So then Thursday night I finished up with The Last Airbender. So that worked well.

Saturday morning was pretty lazy and then we went shopping for supplies for Saturday nights Dance Party. It was to celebrate my niece graduating from 8th grade, then Kalvin's high school graduation/ 18th birthday party. After shopping we then went to pick up one of my other nephews, Garrett, from the train station.

Saturday morning we all went to Denny's for breakfast. It was my brother-in-laws step-dad's surprise retirement breakfast. It was good and delicious! Oh, yeah and fun. On the way home we stopped at the mall to buy a disco ball at Spencer's. Then it was home again to start prepping the house for the party. My dad and bil hung the disco ball. We had some time before people showed up so the kids played football for a bit.

It took a little while to get the dancing started but once it did everyone was booty shaking. It was a lot of fun and exhausting.

Sunday morning was a full day. We went to church and both Justice and Kalvin went up front to be honored as graduating. Afterwards we went to Rudy's, which if you are ever in the Quad Cities you have to go to. They are a pretty awesome mexican food restaurant.

From there we went straight to the graduation. It was a long ceremony, they always are, but it was amazing watching Kalvin graduate. We got lots of photo's and then it was time to say goodbye's. The hardest part of visiting family is leaving again.

It was a little easier knowing I get to go back in a month. I will be there June 1st through the 8th. I am pretty excited except that I will have to leave again and that sucks. So the trip was great!
