Rebecca has said, and I agree, that she has never seen a state that likes to go to school less than Tennessee. We have a lot of breaks during the year, similar to a year round calendar, without being a year round school system. We got out of school yesterday at 12:30 p.m., and will go back on Nov. 28. A week off at Thanksgiving is a long time, but we will be heading to Indiana and doing lots of visiting, so that will be very nice.
I feel like I need to post what I am thankful for, though I am sure I will miss more than a few things: I am thankful for John. He's funny and loving and a great dad. For the kids, all three of them make me laugh and smile daily. They make me remember to slow down, and sometimes cause me to. I am thankful for my parents and in laws. They have helped in more ways than they will ever know. For all of my friends, near and far. For (don't laugh) free long distance. Helps me feel closer to everyone. For a roof over my head, food on my plate and heat in my house. I am also thankful we found a church we really like with truly nice people. For a vehicle I don't worry too much about. And I am thankful for my health.
