I Guess We Made the Right Decision!

If you believe that the devil is out there, and hates it when Christians are serving God and on the right path, then you'll understand what I'm talking about here. Since we've turned in our application, Richard's truck has been in the shop TWICE. Mine has been in the shop once. We were hit with a HUGE tax bill, and to top it all off, when I was leaving school yesterday, I hit another teacher's car!!!!! It wasn't too bad, just scratched the bumper (a BIG scratch). She was very sweet, and is actually one of my favorite people in the world. That makes it better and worse. Still, it's money that has to be spent on something other than China. My only consolation is that the blessing must be really big if the devil is fighting this hard!!

Crazy, Crazy Days!!

Things have been super crazy around here. I have been teaching for a week now, and am beginning to feel like I'm getting my feet under me. It has been alot of fun, and I am really enjoying it, but talk about busy! It stresses me out BAD to not have time for all the things I want and need to do. Richard has been helping out alot, and I appreciate that. There's no way I could do it all. I've been sitting in the car during football practice doing lesson plans and grading papers. There just isn't enough time in the day!
Cade has started football. He is really good, and plays up with the 4th graders because he's so big and strong. He would hurt the kids his own age. He loves it, but we're having trouble with his heels. He has been complaining for a while (started when we bought a different brand shoe). Now, it's really bad. Anytime he runs alot, his heels hurt so bad afterward that he can hardly walk. I've bought him inserts for his shoes, but they only help a little. I have a call into our family friend who happens to be an orthopedic, so hopefully we can figure this out.
BTW, I just wanted to let you know that seeing all the apple-picking, fall colors, and fall clothes is very annoying!!! The heat index is almost 100 here!!! It is SOOOO hot!! Lord, please let the cool weather get here soon!!
It's the weekend for me because tomorrow is a holiday here! YAY!! I am so excited to sleep late tomorrow. Cade will be warned that he very likely could lose his life if he wakes me up ;) (No, I'm not kidding!)
Have a great weekend! (even if you ARE picking apples!)
