I just wanted to apologize for such a slim number of updates lately. We are now in the full swing of Christmas plans. It has been very crazy around here with both Kat and Holly having such full social calendars. We have all been sick at some point since Halloween with various illnesses. Our little exchange group has to see two of the members off this coming weekend. It will involve two separate days of driving to Savannah for us, but we want to be there, so that the students will know that yes they did touch all of our lives.
Hopefully after Christmas, I will have the time and energy to post somke updates and brag a little about how well both Kat and Holly have been doing in school and outside of school.

I found this live streaming video of puppies in a box that is too cute for words. We had a tragedy in the family this week and I don’t really want to discuss it, but feel that I just want to watch cute puppies and kittens instead. I thought that everyone else might get a little pick-me-up from the video.

Yesterday was election day. Holly and I went in to vote around 2 pm. There was absolutely no line. I thought it was important for Holly to see the American electoral process in action. I am not going to tell you who I voted for, but let’s just say that my side didn’t win in every political race. i was very surprised that no even questioned my having Holly at the voting terminal with me, but I guess that is small town American South for you. They actually at first thought she was there to vote.
