First Day of School

Yesterday marked my 5th first day of school as a teacher. I can't believe that it is my 5th year teaching. Boy, how time flies! This year is a special year, since it is my last 'first day' before Pierce arrives. Up until now, my first day of school picture is just me and Duncan, but next year Pierce will get to be in the picture!

This is sure to be a fabulous year. Especially with my 'break' right in the middle of the year to welcome the newest McCord!

Wedding Fun

This past weekend, Justin's roommate from college got married here in Dallas. We had such a fun time with Justin's friends in town from out of state. Here are a few pictures from the wedding.

Downward Slope...

Yesterday I recieved an email from a pregnancy website that said:

Congrats! You have made it to your 3rd Trimester!

I can't believe it. About 12 more weeks til little Pierce is here!

Friday, August 15, 2008


Today is a bittersweet day for me. It is my official last day of summer because us teachers have to return to work on Monday full time. I have had a great summer (full of mom-Duncan time, beginning to work in Pierce's nursery, our trip to Florida, and many othere things) and am sad to see it end; however the start of this school year means I am closer to meeting Pierce.

Justin and I were talking about this fall and all the fun things that are right around the corner and of course at the top of our list is Pierce's arrival! We are so excited that we are getting so close. I am 27 and 1/2 weeks along, which means my 3rd Trimester starts on Tuesday. I can't believe it! There for a while, I didn't think I would make it out of my first trimester.

So although my summer is coming to an end today, I am gladly accepting the end of this summer. Next summer is sure to be one full of many, many, many fun memories with little Pierce around!

Here are a couple more pictures of our trip to Destin:

Loving Our Beach Time...

Well, we are still in here in Destin with the Leaches and are having a fantastic time. We have spent quite a bit of time out at sea, down by the beach, relaxing in our condo, and of course a lot of time laughing together. Here are a few of pics of the past couple of days.

It's Beach Time...

Well, we made it! We are in Destin for our annual vacation with our great friends, the Leaches. This is our first trip with little Brady.  After a long drive through the night and a little wasted time in Barnes and Noble while our condo was getting clean, we made it out to the water for a little 'beach time.' Here are a couple of pictures from our first day here!
