The Fall Foliage Festival Parade

 We found great seats right where we walked up.  Since we were early we sat down to wait.  Motorcycles went by and provided some entertainment.  
 Ana must have perfected her princess wave in Disney World.  It was so funny to watch her wave to the "princesses" in the cars!
 We liked this horse because they had painted fall leaves on it.
 This pony was so CUTE in her tutu!
 We picked this as our favorite corvette.
 These little ponies were super strong!
 The best part?  The pounds of candy that they got--too bad mom only allows one piece a day!

Count Your Blessings

We went out shopping today--something we rarely do--Matt needed a new pair of shoes.  Sadly the Sears in the mall closest to us is closing.  They advertised things as being thirty percent off.  As athletic shoes can be pricey we went to see what they had.  He found a pair of New Balance tennis shoes that weren't gaudy colors and fit well.  They were listed at 60 dollars.  When the lady rang them up the total was just over 15 dollars!  Hooray!

Pumpkin waffles- seriously the perfect fall food!  I made them and they disappeared quickly!

It was 73 degrees today!  The kids wanted to put on their shorts :)

We found a deal at Menards the other day where are their boxed handles were buy one get one free.  So, we got 60 handles/knobs for just over 50 dollars.  That's cheap!!  Our cabinets have been updated from the seventies!

It's only the first day of my break.  I've been sleeping nine hours a night!  At this rate I will be recharged and ready to go when school starts back up.

Great News!

Matt saw the neurologist on Wednesday and has been cleared to drive.  He already has times next week to take a few classes and after those are completed the car can be modified.  This will mean he can take kids places and take himself to therapy!  It will also give a lot more freedom with his days.

Still need a lot of wisdom in deciding what is best for Mitike.  Appreciate your prayers!

Flying In Style...

I came across this article written by a Singaporean flying Singapore Air in the "suites."  Basically, you have a whole cabin to yourself.  Check it out and drool--the food looks amazing!

Check it out!

Matt is at a lamplighter conference at Shepherd this weekend.  Pray with me that he has a GREAT time and is encouraged in his spirit.  I'm excited that he is able to start going off and doing things by himself.

If You Have a Moment...

please pray for my class.  There are going through some tough things this week.  One parent lost his job.  Once student had her home broken into and is really fearful right now.  Often during prayer time, they share that there is a lot of fighting at home.  Sometimes the kids have the weight of what is going on at home on their shoulders.  It is a heavy burden.  Pray that I can show them how to hand it over to Jesus.

A Few Pictures From Disney!

 My favorite!
