She was in the class where the seven students were killed. For an adult losing seven friends it would be awful but I cannot imagine how a child would deal with it. She ran up and hugged my wife and I think my wife about broke down right there. I know this will be a hard year for a lot of folks in our school district but we are praying it goes good.
I am going to organize some stuff around the house and then take the kids somewhere fun. Hope everyone has a great day!
Hoping you are enjoying your day. Thinking of those families.

Darn it. I wasn't even paying attention to the post count. I took 35,000. I should have left 36,000 for someone else. I don't want to hog all of the prizes.

Hope you are all well. I am fine expect for my knee, it decided to go for a walk without me and is still sore as a result. It does not like stairs, so I have not been in the staff lunch room all week since it is up a very long set of stairs. Walking around is OK, but not bending. Anyway, that is my whine for the day, have to go. Working 8:30 to 4 today.
Have a great day.
My knee has been bothering me for a few weeks now. I still have trouble bending down with it but am finally able to go up and down the stairs without wincing. I hope yours heals much faster than mine has been!!!

Anyway, it's a beautiful, cool day.. feels like fall! My mini pumpkins are almost ready. I wish I could take credit for them but I threw them in the garden last year for the squirrels! I thought I planted regular old pumpkins but when they looked a bit funky, I realized I planted BIG MAX pumpkins. Ay yi yi. No wonder the vines were so gigantic!!
Aw, congratulations to your Kindergartner! I hope he loves school!
