Brrr…I’m freezing! I love the fall weather much better than the heat, though. I’m heading to Tullahoma tomorrow. Lo and behold–Siegel Freshmen will be there, too. Maybe I’ll see someone I know when I go out to eat with my mom, brother, and his family. It’s a small world!
Chip came home by 8:30 this morning–upset stomach. He’s definitely going to school tomorrow, since his stomach has seemed fine. His cough sounds kind of gross, but you know, a good decongestant should fix him right up. It’s all the stuff in the air. I’ll have to be sure he’s all packed up for practice tomorrow night since I can’t run gloves, ear muffs, etc up there from Tullahoma. Between Chelsey and Beth, surely he’ll be get by!
Parker had a great day today–the kind of thing I love to hear!
My little friends at church, very little friends, are learning verses about friends, and the one for today was about lending without expecting anything in return. What about you all? Does it bug you when you’ve been nice to help someone out, but they aren’t as willing to help you when you need it? I guess it’s just the human part of us, isn’t it? But, there it is in God’s Word–don’t expect anything in return. Yikes! That can be hard. Or is it easy for you? Maybe you’re the kind of person who doesn’t even think twice about it. You help people out, expecting nothing. Someone helps you out, and it may not be the same person you’ve ever helped. How do you feel about that?
Well, if you’ve ever been here for movie night, you know I can’t stand the scary movies—that’s when I move as far from the room as possible. Parker loves them. Chip is scared to death, but watches–just look at Beth’s picture sometime! Bernie is just like Parker—makes me crazy! So, they’re watching some Halloween monster something TONIGHT–a school night. I have no pull around here when it comes to this stuff–making me nuts. I think I’ll go to bed, where I can dream about nice things. I just don’t know how you all stand the scary movies. Annie, you know how I feel. Give me something funny, something silly, heck sweet’s not bad. But scary….ugh!
Sweet dreams. Oh, and here’s the other version of the trumpet photo show, along with the other band photo shows, and the coffee pictures. Thanks, Meghan Slater for the additional photos! http://photoshow.comcast.net/watch/sZ3kT4wM
