What a week!

Well, I am at least part of the group of people that have my power back. I am VERY grateful for that. Tuesday we headed to school for our 100th day of school celebration. We were down in number b/c of the weather. We still had a fun day. I got a call from a parent of one of my kiddos from last year, who wanted to tell me how much fun they had in my room last year on the 100th day, which made me feel wonderful! I have to say I was a slacker this year and didn't do a shirt with 100 things. Last year I got out lipstick, which I NEVER wear and kissed a shirt 100 times. This year I intended on participating but didn't really think we would end of having school. Therefore I had to rush to do Kylan's shirt with 100 cotton balls during my conference period so that he wouldn't feel left out. Though what do you know, after 10 minutes he had it off. Go figure! When I got home Tuesday my mom said our electric had just gone out. Soooooo, we stayed at her house for heat, b/c they have a gas fireplace. John brought us all home a pizza since we couldn't cook and we stayed the night with them. John also brought home a small power pack thing so that we could watch DVDs on the laptop in the dark. Jace just didn't know what to think about it all. Bless their hearts, my parents gave up their King size bed for us 4 and mom slept on the little couch and dad on the floor upstairs. Of course there was no school Wed. and today. Yesterday we loaded up and went to John's parents for entertainment and food. They have a generator so the kids could watch DVDs, play, and of course get fed a hot meal. We prepared to stay with my parents again for the night b/c John's sister and kids, and John's bro. and his wife and son all stayed there. We got a call however that our power was on so we were fortunate enough to get to sleep in our own beds last night. Stacy and her kiddos came over for a little while to play today. They are still without electricity. There are still tons without electricity, but as of now we will have school tomorrow.
