And another Halloween has come and gone. Spent the morning at Kailei's school for her Halloween parade and party which is always lots of fun. She absolutely loves that I go and it is about the only thing I do manage to attend that's during the school day. Had a nice lunch with my husband which was very special and then Mom, Dad, Mark, Tracie and gang all came over for dinner and trick-o-treating. Keara stayed home and handed out candy and I stayed home as well since I'm fair weathered and it was a little windy. Had a great time. Girls got lots of candy. I miss the days when Keara and Nicholas joined in the fun but we will enjoy celebrating with Sydney and Kailei while we can. 

Happy Halloween Y'all!

Mandy's Visit

Mandy Wong stopped by my office today and surprised me with a visit. She's been teaching over in Japan and got to come home for a couple weeks. She is such an amazing young lady. People like Mandy and Andrea are what makes teaching worthwhile.

Vegas, Baby!

Kicked off my fall break with a trip to Vegas with mom and Aunt Judy. We stayed at the Luxor Hotel for four nights and had a great time. Went to see the show "O" and the show "Divas". Lost lots of money but made some too. My lucky machine was Batman. The weather was gorgeous, the company was great, and I had an awesome time. Thanks ladies!

Feeling appreciated by my awesome staff.  Love the ladies I work with and could not do the job with them.

In Memory of Uncle Carter

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard Him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day.
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me.
God wanted me now; He set me free.

So Keara has started for 4H with Lea. She goes once a week and learns about taking care of dogs and obedience with her dog. Lea needs the training so I'm hoping she will learn lots. Hoping to have a good time with the dogs.
