Happenings as of late....

Yesterday i went on a field trip with Grace's first grade class to The Red Barn in Weston, MO. It was a chilly day, but very sunny and the fall leaves were gorgeous out there in the country. I love getting to go on field trips with her. It is so special to spend one on one time with Grace and really give her my undivided attention. Thanks to my amazing mother, who watched the other two children i got to have a great day and meet some of her cute friends who she talks about all the time. Here are a few pics from the day.

look at her in her precious hat, she is soooo beautiful!

Grace and Isa, my friend Keri's daughter, she is the sweetest!

After I got done with Grace's field trip i decided that while my mom was watching the other two kiddos that it would be a really good time to go vote. I wanted to make sure that i got it done, and i didn't want to have to deal with any lines or anything. Their was a line, but it moved really quickly and it felt so good to have done it. I know so many people are, but i am so passionate about voting. It is just so stinkin important for people to speak up and use their voice. So many people have sacrificed their very lives for us to have this freedom. So, also while we are on the subject i have a real pet peeve with the whole thing about being secretive about who you're voting for. I understand we shouldn't be up in people's faces like asking them to tell you, but if you are voting for someone to be the next President of the United States, why would you need to be secretive about it? If you believe in this person enough to vote for them, you should be able to tell others who and why you are voting. So here we go- I VOTED FOR JOHN MCAIN!!! I have so many reasons as to why i am voting for him, and if you want to talk to me about it, i would LOVE to tell you why I think he is the right choice.
And one last thing to leave you with-this is the book that i am reading right now....and it is AWESOME! Ask me about it!
