I know its been a while since I last posted but its been a busy couple of weeks. First off, after I got back from the Bahamas I was able to go down to Terra's house in Arizona and visit for a few days. I stopped over in Las Vegas and was able to stay with Chelsea and Jeff for two days. And I also got to play with their cute little girl Karlee! Karlee is just one month younger than Dakota and one month older than Jonathan. I love when babies start getting at these ages because their little personalities just start to come out! It was fun to just sit and chat with Chels again. It was also fun to see Terra, Josh, and Dakota. We went shopping, ate yummy food, watched movies and soccer games, and I even took Dakota for a walk! He is so adorable with his little hat on! Then it was finally time to get back to work. Last week I had parent/teacher conferences and boy did those make for some really long days! But now they are all done and its time for some holiday fun! Our first grade team is so much fun! We always do Thanksgiving, Polar Express, and Christmas around the World rotations where the kids from all 6 classes switch around and do all sorts of fun things! And then when those are all done, it will be time to go home for the holidays! YEAH!! But I am sad to not be going home for Thanksgiving. I was looking forward to mom's good cooking and seeing Twilight with my sisters but I guess that will have to wait until Christmas. But I really can't complain about Thanksgiving because in the past 7 years I have had Thanksgiving in a different place every year. So this year will be yet another place and adventure!
