A whole week and nothing especially new to say! :) How about a bunch of random thoughts?

It reached 72 here yesterday, it's supposed to be upper 70's on Wednesday!! I love weather like that!

I had a great stitching weekend! My friend and I went by the LNS on the way to our stitching weekend. I've gone through most of my stash and just made list of what I need to stitch what I already have: fabric or thread or buttons. So at the LNS I just shopped off my list! How boring is that? :) We started stitching around 2:30pm and finally put the needles up around 1:00am. Picked them back up around 8:00am and stitched until a little after 5:00. Of course we took a few minutes to eat, but besides that we just stitched! That's my kind of weekend! I was able to finish one Christmas ornament, and start and finish two others. I need to take some pictures, they turned out really cute!

I finally got my fabric and pattern for the new RR that we are starting the end of Feb. So picking out my threads is a high priority at the moment!

Dh leaves Wed for the Ukraine, he'll be gone until late Sunday night. This Tuesday he is teaching a youth conference in a town 4 hours from here, so basically after tonight, we won't see much of him!

I came home to a letter in my mailbox that announced they have reassigned our base school. That means my poor Luke will have to change schools next year. We have a few options, and we are going to do our best to keep him where he's at. For three main reasons: the new base school is a year around school, that means school is in session during the normal summer. I don't have a problem with that, in fact I liked year around when we were in it years ago. BUT things have changed, first of all...due to Dh's schedule with summer camps we aren't even here during the summer!That's the major problem. Andrew (in Middle School) will stay on a regular school calendar, adn can you imagine juggling that one! :) One's on vacation and one's in school.. YIKES! And that's only my first reason! :) Second reason: if Luke changes schools, this will be his FOURTH elementary school and he will only be entering the 4th grade. I'm telling you I am convinced that he can NOT handle another change. He cried hysterically every day last year, and only this year finally sort of likes school. I can't imagine the horror of trying to change him! :) I forget my third reason for keeping him where he is...the first two are reason enough, don't you think?

We can't do anything about it until May. Then we have one chance, if the response is no...we can go face to face with the school board. So keep us in your prayers. We haven't told Luke, or anybody for that matter! Well, now I've told the world.. if you ever run into Luke...don't tell him!! We are praying that he will be allowed the transfer to stay in his current school, and we won't even have to go into all of this with him!

If they deny us, and he has to change schools... we'll have to cross that bridge when we come to it! I pray we never do!!!

Happy Stitching everybody!

wow I really hope he doesn't have to change schools. It is sooo hard. As you know I experienced that quite a bit as a kid. Good plan to not tell him for now. Hopefully he never even has to know and it will all work out.
