A LITTLE ABOUT BRITTANY (BRAT)

MY BRAT, MY BRITTANY, IS A  FIRST YEAR TEACHER
AND COACH.
SHE WAS ON HER WAY TO SCHOOL
LAST WEDNESDAY, THE 9TH, 
AND BECAUSE OF THE ICY ROADS
SHE LOST CONTROL OF HER CAR.
SHE CROSSED OVER INTO THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC.
BUT, MOST OF YOU ALREADY KNOW THAT
BECAUSE THIS IS MY 3RD POST ABOUT BRAT
AND ABOUT THE ACCIDENT.
I THOUGHT I'D TELL YOU ABOUT SETTING UP
HER FIRST CLASSROOM LAST AUGUST
BECAUSE THAT WAS A REALLY FUN DAY.

WHILE SHE ORGANIZED
I DECORATED.
WHAT A SURPRISE.

ABOVE ARE PICTURES OF ONE OF THE
BULLETIN BOARDS.
BRAT STAMPED THE MUSLIN TRIM.
(I'D BE IN TOTAL DOO IF I DIDN'T MENTION THAT)
WE TOOK SOME OF THAT STAMPED MUSLIN TRIM
AND TAPED IT ANOTHER WALL
FOR THE ENGLISH THEMED BANNER TO HANG.
IT'S FLASHCARDS I MADE
WITH ENGLISH TERMS.
SHE TEACHES 9TH GRADE ENGLISH IN AUSTIN, TEXAS.
I COVERED THE FRONT BULLETIN BOARD
AND THEN (THIS IS OUR FAVORITE PART)
I USED MY SEWING MACHINE TO GATHER
BLACK CREPE PAPER FOR THE BORDER.
OH, YEAH.

THERE WAS THIS BIG  BLANK BACK WALL
THAT WAS SCREAMING FOR SOMETHING.....
SO I CREATED A BULLETIN BOARD.
WE'RE HOPING THAT THE SCHOOL
THINKS THERE'S ALWAYS BEEN ONE THERE.
THIS IS WILL, BRITTANY'S FIANCE -
HE WAS THERE MOST OF THE DAY.
HELPING.
HE PAINTED THE HONKIN' HUGE WALL
CHERRY RED, THE COLOR OF MY CONVERTIBLE.
IT LOOKED SO COOL.
FOLLOW MY LEAD....I. SIMPLY. ADORE. HIM.
HE IS AMAZING AND I'M GLAD
MY LITTLE GIRL IS MARRYING HIM.

DID I MENTION THAT HE'S A LOT OF FUN??..............
AND, HE PUTS UP WITH ME FAMOUSLY.

MEDICAL UPDATE ON BRAT:
She is healing.
After she gets her pain under control
and starts eating better,
she is going to be moved to a rehab facility.
She'll probably meet some famous athlete there.
She's different than me - she'll know who it is.

Will is still off shore but will be home in about 3 weeks.
And, this part makes me sooooo happy.............
TOMORROW I'M GOING TO THE HOSPITAL TO SEE HER.
I KNOW!!
I'm going to spend the night in her room and will come back
home on Tuesday. (Remember, my mom is still here:)

I'm just so excited to be able to go now
even for two days!
Then, when I get back from up north (mom has to go back 'til next time:)
I'll be all Brittany's!
That's after April 11th, but the time will go by quickly.
And, there's phone calls, text messages
(you should see me text - I'm lightning quick.),
emails.................

I'm so grateful that she's healing and that she's going to be alright.

I love her so much.

She really is my little girl.

In my heart.

In my soul.

I feel her.

Oh Miss Jan~
you're a love.
I am happy you will be seeing your baby, and I am thrilled to hear that she is recovering. I bet seeing her man will help with that too. Your a sweet mama, for sure.
Sending lots of love to you, and brat.
