Friday Night Leftovers

~ I am so glad this week is over. I feel like I'm living for weekends right now. If only they didn't go so fast!

~ Last Saturday my Great Aunt Ann (my grandmother's SIL) had a heart attack. She is 87. Fortunately she is doing better than they expected.

~ Jeff's Aunt Carol was put in the hospital today with 100% and 90% blockage in her carotid arteries. This is his mom's oldest sister and we are very close to them. Prayers please and thank you.

~ Chase had a rough week at school, which is not like him. I think it's just his way of dealing with everything going on. Nothing bad, just talking a lot and not focusing. Hoping it was a just a one week thing. He is really a good boy and I'm very thankful. Not sure I could handle this every week.

~ Emery started a tumbling class this past Thursday. Once a week for 45 minutes. We have been to birthday parties at this gym and she loved it. However, she was not so happy with the class. We are going to have to work on following directions and not doing what we want, when we want. Hard lesson! I think in time she'll really enjoy going.

~ Our schedule is just insanely busy. Not sure how we're going to work all this in, but I guess we'll figure it out somehow.

~ Our temperatures have actually been slightly cooler. It was above 100 a couple of days, but I'll take a couple of days over a month any time! We are actually supposed to get some highs in the low 90s, I'm so excited. October, November, and December are my favorite time of year and I look forward to the cooler weather! (Well, I actually love June, July, and part of August an awful lot too, but it's soooo hot during those times!) We may even get some rain which is SUPER exciting!

I guess that pretty much sums up what's going on. Hope everyone else is having an awesome weekend!

****I am grateful for
1) the possibility of rain
2) cooler temperatures
3) the weekends
4) Duchess is home from her business trip, safe and sound
5) all my papers from the week are graded and in the computer, no work on the weekend!

Praying for your Great Aunt Ann and Jeff's Aunt Carol. If it's true that bad luck comes in threes, then your family should be done with it now! I sure hope/pray that you are!

Also, praying that Chase has a better week at school this next week. I'm sure he just must not be himself right now because I know he is always SO GOOD.

And praying that the weeks get better for you as time goes by, too. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help in any way. Just remember that you're an awesome teacher. All you can do is focus on your class and do the best you can to teach them. None of the other "stuff" (to put it nicely) matters! I pray that it gets better for you! I'm here for you if you need me.

"I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me." Philippians 4:13 :-)

I am so sorry to hear of all the hardships with family health. My thoughts are with you.

I am sure chase is just trying to deal with all of that... He is a good boy and will come around.

I am jealous and need to get on the ball to get the girls in a tumbling class!!! :)

((HUGS)) hang in there.
