Today is a very sad day. A very selfish and disturbed young man took the life of twenty innocent elementary school children and six adults. It breaks my heart. I can't imagine taking my kids to school, then having something like that happened. School should be the safest place your kids go outside their home.
It was a beautiful December day in Nebraska. Following the morning events, Farley and I walked to pick up Natalie from school.
As soon as she saw us, she ran to give me a hug. The joy of your child running into your arms is overwhelming. Especially after a tragedy like today's.

I've been told that I've lived in a constant state of stress for about fifteen years. And recently I had a conversation with someone else who has been told that. She said that even though her job situation has slowed down, she has found other ways to fill her time and has not yet figured out how to relax. She told me that I'll probably be the same way after I graduate. That I will need to work at being able to slow down and relax. Should be interesting. Only a matter of months until I graduate with my bachelor's!
I'm a couple days away from being done with another semester. I finished my online algebra class a couple weeks ago. When signing up for it, I was told it was probably the hardest math class they had online and I would most likely need to go to the math center for help. I got a B in the class, which I'm happy about. I'm even more happy that I won't have to take a math class online again! Student teaching in the clinic is a blast! I absolutely love it and look forward to my Friday mornings. I feel like I know what I'm doing and I do a decent job at it. I had to be late one morning and was told that about half the class asked where I was and if I was ok. I guess they don't mind me being there either! I'll be taking another clinical student instruction class next semester in which I'll have more freedom and responsibility. I hope I enjoy it just as much!
I've been working two days a week, sometimes more if I can find sub work. Although I thought I'd be working four days a week at this point, it has allowed me time to work on school work. (I'm often reminding that things happen for a reason and many I needed the extra time to not be so stressed.) Starting next week, my job situation is going to change completely. I hope for the better! If nothing else, it has helped me learn what I want out of a job and how I should/shouldn't be treated.
I haven't been taking pictures. Like at all. I don't know why. I need to get my camera all charged up and put it somewhere more available so I'll be more likely to grab it.
Other than that, I'm just getting ready for the holidays to get here so we can focus on birthdays! Plus, Nathan will be here in ONE week! It'll be cool having him here for a holiday!

The list saying who made Technical Sergeant this year was due to come out today at 8:00 central time.
Last night Roby was waiting anxiously for his supervisor to call him as they sometimes find out the day before. He didn't get a call.
At 7:59 this morning he called me to say he didn't make it. My heart sank.
I should have known better.
After letting me say, "Sorry hun..." Roby said, "Just joking, I made it!"
Although he won't admit it, I know he'd been worrying about it. I'm SO SO SO proud of him and happy he made it this year!!!

A few weeks after the carnival, I was checking out the school website for something and saw this on their slideshow!
The week before school got out, Natalie's school had spirit week. She was very excited to dress up for the last spirit day! We went all out painting her face and arms! She even had school colored flowers in her hair!

Caught Nat shaking her bum at me!

Yup, another amazing smile! I guess its good I can still make her laugh like that!
Big yawn! These two pics remind me how much of a kid she really is, and I am thrilled to capture moments like it!
