Week 2 done.

Second football game at cheer sponsor - done!!! I swear, if I have any hair left at the end of football season, it will be a miracle.

I am slowly getting things organized and creating routines for my girls. They are beginning to understand my high expectations of them. They have seen a different side of Mrs. Campbell. The classroom "me" and the coach "me" are two totally different people. They now know that I am anal, controlling and OCD. They also know that I love them. The great thing is, they understand that even when I am melting down, yelling, and being witchy I am not trying to be mean. They know that I want what is best for them.

This week's pep rally was the "blackout" pep rally. The girls did a dance, stunt routine, and something called crumping. It's kind of like play fighting meets dance. I was thinking West Side Story - but I'm sure there's some new and hip movie or something where they got it from. (Not everyone loves WSS like me!!)

Our football game was the "game of the week" on the local news station. We haven't started district yet, so it doesn't count toward our road to the state championship. It was a nail biter. And we lost - 21-20. I have some seriously bummed kiddos. It is heartbreaking for them to have suffered a loss, but it's all part of playing the game, right?

My weekend consists of: editing pictures, writing my article, making the video, working on next week's pep rally, grading papers, doing housework, washing my truck, and working on Senior Ads for the program ...and resting as much as humanly possible.

Oh, and at the pep rally I was introduced as the new cheer sponsor and crowned. I really do love my job and my babies!!!
