From Lance

Hi everyone! It's me, Lance, writing to you today. Mom says she'll be shocked if any of you are still around reading her blog. But I told her that you all loved her and would still come! Anyway, here's a picture of me sitting at Mom's piano. Mom likes to sit down and practice songs, but I think it's way more fun to just bang away, so whenever she sits down, I come up to her and say, "MOVE! MY TURN!" Most of the time she lets me, but she didn't today cuz she's working on a song to play at church in a couple of weeks.

She has one more day of her internship!! She's actually supposed to be there today, but I'm running a little bit of a fever so she didn't want to take me to preschool. I'm much better than I was on the weekend, though. I was running a fever of 101.7!!! Today it was much, much, lower and she expects me to be all better by tomorrow, which is good, cuz we're driving up to Grandma and Grandpa's house tomorrow for Thanksgiving. I'm going to meet my other Grandma from South Africa, too! She's going to come stay with us until Christmas. It's her first time in the USA and Mommy is kinda nervous. Mommy has a lot to do to get the house ready for her, so she says I have to get off the computer now so she can start getting us packed for her trip.

Oh, by the way, do you like my hat? It lights up.

*edited to add: Thanks to those of you who offered to paticipate in my "Where in the USA Has Our Email Gone" project. I ran out of time, so the project never got off the ground. Please don't think I was rejecting your geographical contribution! I truly appreciate everyone's willingness to help!

7 days left of my internship.

Then it's off for Thanksgiving with my family, and a few day's vacation at Disneyworld!

Then it's time to look for a job.

Then it'll be Christmas.

Then I'll *hopefully* be working.

I have some recent photos of Kiddo that I'll be uploading soon. Since there's not much interesting stuff going on with me, he's always a good subject! Stay tuned.

Where In The USA Has Our Email Gone??

It's time for a class project!!

I am a teacher in a first-grade class, and we are learning about our country. We will be running an experiment for two weeks, between November 10-November 21. We will send out an email and see how far it can travel in two weeks! Hopefully, we can reach all 50 states by then!!

Here is how it will work. I will send out an e-mail explaining our project. In it, I will ask people to send our class an email back to the following address:

I will ask people to tell us the city and state in which they live, and if they like, a fun fact about their area. Each morning I will read the emails to the students and we will talk about the different places and put a pin in a map to show all the places that our email has reached.

If you would like to participate in this, please leave your e-mail address in the comments and I will make sure to include you when I send out the first email on November 10. Please be aware that it will come from, and not my personal email address.

Thank you very much!

Happy Halloween!

Yes. My husband is such a geek that he carved the Apple logo into our Mac-O-Lantern. Pun intended.

Jedi Knight and a pirate maiden??!!

Yoda I am!
