I wanted the font to be in a pretty fall color because that is what it feels like today. It is my favorite time of year. I love September and October. The leaves are just beginning to show a hint of color and the sky is the most brilliant blue. The mornings are chilly and you need a long sleeved shirt, but then in the afternoon it gets really hot. By the time the sun goes down the chill is back and you can sleep with the windows open and snuggle up in your down comforter. It is the best!

It has been a while since I wrote anything here. I have been so busy with school. I have worked almost every single night to get ready for the next day and haven't even cut the computer on here at home. A lot has happened. Hurricane Katrina hit southern LA, MS and AL and has flattened communities. There are so many people that need help and I feel so helpless. I hope that somehow I will be able to do something to make a difference. In the meantime I will keep on doing what I do each day. I will teach and love the kids I have.

My daughter, Claire, got braces today. She is doing surprisingly well. She has a hard time chewing and sounds like she has a mouth full of bb's, but she looks cute. The front bands are green. Boy, how things have changed. You can pick a color for your braces these days.

Campbell is doing well adjusting to middle school. Now I have no idea what either of my kids are doing. When they were with me at Brevard Elementary I could check up on them easily. Now I just hope and pray that they do the right thing and are responsible for what they need to be. I was talking to someone today and said that of all the great things God has done for me, giving me two great kids was up at the top of the list. I don't have to worry about them too much.

It is only 7pm and I am about to crash. Last night was one of those that didn't produce much sleep. Just a lot on my mind I guess. It took a double dose of coffee at school today to keep me going.

Speaking of school, it is going well. I got an assistant today and she is going to be great. It made the day much easier. There were no discipline problems to speak of because having an extra set of eyes deters the acts. I think we got more done than we have so far this year and even finished our math a bit early. Most of the kids even got their homework done in class.

I think Claire wanted me to help her study for a Social Studies test, so I will get on that. I also need to do some laundry and a few other tasks. So TTFN.
