The dog was a big one and did a job on our car:
Andy did mostly k5-2nd grade. He and his friend Cameron were a hit. They did a great job. I wish I had thought about him last year...
I also asked Wayne Moore from KABC to come and talk about his missions travels. He did an excellent job. He was restricted about talking how he went to share the Gospel. So his theme was that we needed to be Thankful for all we have as he showed the kids houses in Manila & the Dominican Republic. How the kids there didn't have all things we have here. It was perfect, I knew he would do a great job!

1-My brother and his family came down from NC on the way to the Fl Keys for Sara's brother's wedding. They came in on Mon. night and left Thurs. afternoon. We had our 'Thanksgiving' meal on Tuesday with mom. That was good cuz we are going to Tx for Thanksgiving and I was feeling a bit guilty about leaving Mom. And we didn't have turkey (mom hates turkey). Just some good ole fashion 'puertorican food'. Pork, yellow rice, black beans, and FLAN!!
They came by work on the way out to say goodbye. That's good, cuz I hadn't taken any pics of them yet...

At the beginning, I was having major "miss my kids" moments.
Then the election. Well, that was depressing.
At the end of the week, more head butting with one of my children. Won't say who...
I am tired. Emotionally tired. I told Fred we need to get away.
And what is sad, our lives aren't that bad. They are pretty good, actually. After 'analizing' myself, I think it comes down to how very little control I have over the things that are going on around me. Duh!! And that's probably a good thing. I know I would screw it up royally. But the control freak in me still fights.
I HAVE got to get into a good devotional/quiet time. And I need to start going to the MAC at church and exercise.
I know God is looking at me and patiently waiting for me to get my act together.
Fear not, I am with you. Do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you , yes I will help you. I will hold you in my Righteous Right Hand.

But I have missed him so much it hurts... :(
What if he gets used to not having us around and is fine to be 'without' a family? What if he doesn't miss us (ME)?
I know I sound like a baby, and deep down I do want him to make a life for himself outside of us, that's the natural progression of life. But can't he miss me a little, enough to call me? I would love for him to call me just to tell me something silly that happened, or something that got him aggravated and he needed to vent. I would even take a text or an email.
I get those calls from Nina, and it helps me to deal with her being gone. I know guys are different, but it doesn't make my expectations any different...
Well, I guess I have blubbered enough here. Just needed to let it out to see if I would feel better....
nope, didn't work.

We had a "Fab Vocab" parade. Our class had words from the word families: ap, op, ick, all. So I came as Fall.
I wish I could show you pics of my kids in my class. They were adorable!! But as you can understand, I can't. But here are a couple of the teachers. Our principal came as hairy. He kinda freaked out one of our kids who has a thing about 'fringy' stuff.
I think the teachers had as good a time as the kids.
