Woodson News: S-L-O-W D-O-W-N

I sat down at least three times this last week. I mean I sat at a time before I usually sit down at the end of the day, and I fall asleep on the couch and wake up later to find I that I slept through my favorite shows and it’s time to go to bed… Wake up and go to sleep! Too busy!

It was nice to be home a week, even if some of my poor students had to spend three mornings with me. They were successful mornings!

So, S-L-O-W D-O-W-N, and come celebrate our country! Bring your lawn chairs and head to Woodson for the 4th of July Community Celebration on July 4, from 5-11 PM. Contact Amber Boland for information: 940-521-1687. Need a booth, wanna listen to great live music, or want to eat good food? Bring your friends and enjoy the fireworks!
