Happy Labor Day!!

I know this is an old background from CLBOTB, but I was missing the country graphics and this reminded me of them a little. I love the scarecrow. I like doing my blog here at blogger, but I miss country graphics.
Well, the bank did not go for our offer on the house. We agreed that their counter-offer was much too high, so we decided not to agree to their offer. We are looking elsewhere for houses now. These things all work out. They did show our house Friday afternoon though and the people stayed at least an hour looking around. That made me a little nervous. If they do make a good bid and we accept, we will not really have anywhere to go. There aren't any homes here where we live that we like. We looked at some wonderful houses today, but they are in another town. Josh would have to change schools. I am just praying everything works out the way it is supposed to.
Student teaching is going good. The teacher had to leave for a family emergency one day this week, so I was alone with the class much of the day. I think everything went well, except for classroom management. It is hard to be in control when it is not your class. I have some things I am going to try. I will be taking over reading and language this week. I will probably do that for two weeks because I am having an evaluation next week. I only have social studies and math to take over after that, I will take social studies...maybe even next week and then math.
We are not doing anything special for Labor Day. Just relaxing. It is nice to have a little break. I am going to add my little birthday siggie from Susie this week since my birthday is Friday the 9th. Have a nice week!!! Happy Labor Day!!


  1. Bummer about the house... But I'm sure that the perfect house is out there somewhere.

    Hope you're having a relaxing day today! :)

  2. Hi Lori! You have done a great job of keeping up with your blog. Congrats on passing your praxis! That is a big step out of the way. Good luck with your house situation. I know it can be very stressful, but hang in there. It will all work out. Have a great Labor Day!

  3. I love the cute Fall graphics. Hope your weekend is going good.

  4. Hi Lori,
    I wanted to let you know that I've moved my blog. The new URL is Hugs :-)

  5. Hi Lori, Happy day after Labor Day. ;-} I too miss our old country websites and that's why I still use my own with Blogger.

    I'm glad everything is going well for you on your teaching job. I'm sure your evaluation will be great.

    Have a blessed beginning of the week my friend. Hugs

  6. Hi Lori,
    I feel for you going thru the buying/selling process. You will find something when you least expect it so don't get discouraged.

    Glad student teaching is going so good. Sounds like fun! Hugz!

  7. Hi Lori! Sounds like they were very interested if they stayed an hour. When we were looking for an investment house if we didn't like it, we were out in 5 minutes! (((Hugz)))

  8. I hope everything works out and you can find a house in your same school district. We've considered moving at times, and even though the boys aren't in public school, we know they'd miss their friends, so that's kind of deterred us from moving. LOL

  9. HI Lori, I hope you find a house that you want in the area you're looking, it is very stressful finding one that is for sure and then to coordinate with the sale of your house that your in. I do remember that!
    I am sorry you were alone the other day but you made it through. I miss country graphics as well. Have a great week! PS your graphics are cute here though. Big hugs

    Happy Happy Belated Birthday Lori!

  10. Hey Lori! I'm finally out for a little blog hopping stroll around the old neighborhood. Speaking of neighborhoods... hope you guys find the perfect house and that God makes your transition smooth!
