Yesterday we went swimming at our neighborhood pool for the first time. It
was so fun. My brother and I played a game who can find the goggles. Next
I jumped in the pool doing a cannonball. We had a blast down at the pool.
We came home surprised that our mom made us some turkey burgers. And they
For Mother’s Day I got a new little kitten I named Willow. It wasn’t much of a surprise since I picked it out and actually flew to Pittsburgh Friday night to get it.
She is a Korat which comes from Thailand and is hypoallergenic, which will be good for Mitchell.
The kids bought me some kitten play toys for her and we’ve had a lot of fun introducing her to TX and our family.
Brian put up a few pictures from our first day with Willow.
Madeline and I recently went to Mexico with NCYTE. We had a great time and I kept up a google map which shows where we visited. Check it out. Simply click on the blue POIs below to see what we did at each spot. I still have a couple spots to add from the last day so check back and see what’s been added. If you want to see a larger map, there is a small link under the map.

Well, I finally bit the bullet and revamped the movies section. With the move of Doerrstop a few months back to a new host, we’ve had a few issues with the movie links. So while I decide what to do with the movies section, I’ve uploaded them all to YouTube and linked to it from the MOVIES menu above.
I would have put it into a window within doerrstop.com com for those of you who just don’t want to leave, but YouTube’s site is just too wide for that, so I open a new window for you to browse all our movies on YouTube. Once you are done you can close it and you’ll be right back to our lovely little site.
I may move them back into the site once I have some time to work on it some more but I have a few other things I need to do on the site (upgrade and add comments back in) and some of my other sites right now. so this should tide me over until I can get back to it.
Jump over to YouTube and vote for your favorites while you are there.
Today my student teacher was leaving. She was going to become a real teacher. I was so happy for her, but a little sad that she had to leave. I’m going to miss her a lot! She is still in my heart! I gave her tips on how to be a good teacher. She might follow my advice. You never know! -Mason
When I got done with basketball, my dad took me and my whole team to GattiTown. We went there because it was the end of the season and we had a party. I got a medal and a certificate that said I was the best offensive player. I play a lot with my friends and with my dad. Of course we had so much fun together. Then everyone went home. I had a great year at basketball with my friends and family. Bye for now.
My writing TAKS test is coming up in 5 days. But I’m not nervous. I’ve done well on all the practice tests so far. One time I got an 86 and another time I got an 89. I was s glad. I always do good on my stories. And I’m good at editing too. I’ll keep you posted once I get my score back. Later!
