Dear Parents, Students, Faculty & Staff-

   Welcome back to school!  It is a blessing to begin my 18th year at O'Rourke with all of you!  I am blessed to say that I re-married my husband, Jeff this summer and we have two amazing sons-Baylor who is 8 and in Mrs. Spence's class and Brooks, 5 who is in Mrs. Herring's class.  This summer, we took a surprise trip to Cincinnati, Ohio to visit family and to Louisville, Kentucky to see U2 (my favorite musical group of all time) !! While in Cincinnati, we went to Kings Island and to a Cincinnati Reds game. We spent alot of time at West Mobile Swim Club, where both boys took swim lessons and they had a blast at Planet Gymnastics Summer Camp.  Jeff & I also spent a weekend in beautiful St. Petersburg, Florida for his work.  Baylor and Brooks are actively involved in soccer, baseball, gymnastics and church choir so their schedules keep me on my toes!  When I have free time, I love to travel(went to Disney for Spring Break and can't wait to go back!), anything that pertains to being in, or or around water, going to concerts, crafting and college football (I am a HUGE Auburn fan and Jeff is a HUGE Alabama fan which makes things pretty interesting every Fall),  We also have a 5 year old German Shepherd  who is like a third child and adds alot of fun and laughter to our family.
