Spooktacular Morning with the Tigers and the Cheerleaders at the Elementary

If you walked into Electra Elementary this morning, you most definitely needed to have your best game face on.  There were ghost and goblins around every corner.  Who would have guessed that the elementary was haunted.  However all was well because the Electra Tigers and cheerleaders made their usual Friday visit to the delight of the little elementary ghouls.  Even Mother Nature helped out to supply the ghoulish backdrop with her pouring rain.  The cheerleaders rushed out with umbrellas in hand to each car to escort students up to the door to keep them dry.  Meanwhile the Tigers were walking around the cafeteria and visiting with the elementary students.  So much going was going on and excitement filled the air.  So many memories were being made.  This morning was a small example of what a wonderful district and a wonderful school body we have.  I’m so proud of our Tigers and cheerleaders.  Thank you for all you do.  Also thank you to your sponsors.  All I can say is “What about those Tigers….and those cheerleaders!!!!”  💕 

Busy Weekend that Just Kept Going!!!

This weekend was so busy.  However it was so much fun.  Friday school ended early for most of you because of the weather. Gabe and I stayed until the regular time waiting for everyone to be picked up.  Of course we all watched the weather this weekend.  Unfortunately a tornado hit outside of Altus Saturday.  We saw a house destroyed along with a few buildings as we were going to Altus Sunday to attend church with my son and his family.  There were several poles laying over. Gabe’s mom and aunt took pictures in Electra as the storm entered Electra Saturday.  Afterwards, Gabe and I took a trip to Sonic but all seemed well.  The strange thing is right before the storm Gabe and I were playing baseball outside during the day.  This bird kept hanging around the house.  Gabe took several pictures of him.  He would fly away and then come back.  The bird would come very close and just chatter.  I told Gabe that he was trying to tell us something.  He either stayed in the tree by us or flew overhead.  After the storm rolled in, I never saw him again.  And then there was little Gizmo’s adventure Saturday morning.  He had to venture down to the police station and get his annual vaccination.  He was a true trooper!  He did not whimper once!  Gabe and I were so proud of him 🙂 . 

After church Sunday, my daughter and son-in-law wanted us to go to the Lake Arrowhead with them and the rest of the family.  There were so many people there.  It was neat to see the lake that full again.  God is good to give us this rain!  More is suppose to come this week.  Gabe and the others were fishing.  Now that is not my “cup of tea.”  I rather just watch!  However they were catching a bunch of catfish.  Pops, my son-in-law’s dad, caught a 3 lb. catfish.  We stayed until  the sun starting setting.  It was so pretty on the water.  It was one of the nicest weekends that I’ve had in a long time!
