Election, Thanksgiving Break, and Giveaways, Oh My!

Wow! What a DAY! I have thought about what the day after the election would look like for a while, and it was just that. Hurt feelings. Name calling. Lucky for me, I got to spend the day with 5 year olds. They are not oblivious though to what they hear at home. We had a little sit down and watched the Kid President: How to Disagree first thing this morning. When I recapped and asked students what they can do if they disagree with another friend, the first answer out of their mouth was DANCE! Wouldn't it be nice if it could be that simple and we could have a huge dance party right now?



One of my girls wore this sweet shirt today, and it brought tears to my eyes. So many people are hurting right now. Regardless of the outcome, there were people on both sides who were feeling forgotten, unloved, or invisible, and that breaks my heart. Praying for unification and a nation that truly is indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.


Soooooo on another note, it is NOVEMBER! How is that even happening? Only one more week and one day of school until I am off for Thanksgiving Break! I am taking an extra Friday off to head down to Florida for a wedding with my boyfriend, and then off to the Bahamas! I have never been to the Bahamas OR on a cruise, so I am beside myself with anticipation....so if anyone has any cruise tips, I am ready to hear them! I will try to post some pictures upon my return!
