Nolan's Christmas Program 2015

Once Nolan's spotted us in the crowd he refused to look at us again. Also he was very serious about his performance.

Back Splash Fun

Every time I used the wet saw Isaac would rock out because it sounded like heavy metal. 
No one got a free meal on Thanksgiving. That's uncle Craig cutting tile.



This is my neighbor, Kate, that was one of my partners in crime. She helped me get started while David was out of town.

While David goes out of town I usually do a home project. This week was a back splash.

Ease Back into Teaching!

This is how things tend to happen with me. I'll start doing a little research on one thing and it leads me down a path. Like our summer trip was just to visit Julie in Miami and then it turned into a month long road trip seeing all the sights.
So I was doing research on private schools because somethings have been happening in Isaac's class that I wasn't happy with, but that's another story. Then I was looking in to open positions because we would need my income in order to pay for private school. So then I was looking at the school I used to teach at and they had a perfect position open. So then I applied on a whim. Side note: I randomly apply for positions every couple of years. Within 24 hours I got a call back and an interview with the position offered to me! Another side note: David was out of town and I had to text him to give me a call. With this position I work from 7:10-2:10 so I'll be back to get Isaac off the bus, but David will need to get the kids ready and off to school in the morning. The position is the building substitute. I'll be a floater that works in the office and goes into classroom for an hour or so if the teacher has a dr. appt. or something like that. If the teacher is going to be out all day then they will use the substitute service for a daytime sub. This position has been open for two months. They told me they were waiting for someone like me since this position works with everyone in the school. I start Monday and so far this seems like it was sent from God. There was one opening at Nolan's preschool for Tue/Th as well. Just to many coincidences surrounding this event that I know God is talking to me.

Wrestling

Isaac was interested in wrestling until we actually went to practice. Towards the end of practice he decided he didn't care for it.

Our poor chickens

While we were in Florida our neighbor came to feed our chickens daily. Unfortunately something knew we were gone and attacked our chickens over a few days. After getting back we found one of the predators in the coop snacking on a couple of our chickens. Here's Red trying to hide on top of my gardening bench. 


Here's David prepared for battle with coonie. Thankfully a neighbor and David took care of coonie.  I know our neighbors felt horrible that a few chickens gotten eaten on their watch, but they're just chickens and now I have an excuse to get more.

Halloween Adventures

We went to Conner Prairie for the Headless Horseman hayride, which was the perfect amount of scary for them. 



Then we had some of the neighbors over to decorate cookies. 


Halloween Night! Nolan was a ghost, I was Effie Trinket from the Hunger Games, Isaac was a Knight, and David was a noble stead. 

Some spooky root beer at our small group Halloween Party.
