I know posts have been a bit sporadic and, well, things just aren't going to improve around here for a couple of weeks. Our house is finally "sale pending" so I'm packing and cleaning. We leave in just a few days and then I'll be consumed with getting the kids in school, unpacking, and most importantly-putting up the Christmas tree. I plan to post a Christmas letter the first full week of December. Until then-enjoy your Thanksgiving and the beginning of the most wonderful time of the year!

Earlier this week I attended a Veteran's Day assembly at the middle school. The program was so well prepared with music from the middle school choirs, middle school band, and the high school symphonic choir, as well as two videos, a moment of silence, and a time to honor the veterans. There were, in attendance that day, 15 veterans from various branches of military. Some had been lucky enough never to have fought in a war, others were currently serving or had served in the Irag war, the Vietnam War, Korean War, and one who had served in World War II, the Korean War, and the Veitnam War.
I became so emotional as I stood to applaud their service.
I am so grateful for my freedoms and thank them for their service.
