Well let's see. We've done quite a few things since we were last here. We went on a cruise this summer, the same one we went on last sumer, but it was paid for this time by Daran's mom and Ned. We had a room with a window which was really nice.
We enjoyed it and had a good time.
During the summer, Rachel and I did the usual, sleep late, take swiming lessons, go shopping, etc. We love summer.
But all good things must come to an end.
Rachel started first grade in August. Her teacher this year is Ms. Elizondo, and Rachel seems to enjoy it.
I am in my 13th year of teaching French at DVHS and this year I was moved into a beautiful room in the new wing. I have windows that face the front, and I even have a bathroom in my room. It is awesome! Karina is still there, and I love her. She is right across the hall from me and it is great to have here there to talk to and to share ideas with.
For Halloween this year, Rachel was a bumble bee.
We went trick or treating around the neighborhood with all of the neighborhood kids.
Thanksgiving this year I had everyone at my house. Mom, Dad, Doug, Eleanor, Elizabeth and Benjamin. Everything was really good.
The next day, Mary took me and Rachel to Breakfast with Santa at the Lost Pines Resort in Bastrop. They had a breakfast buffet and different activities for the kids; cookie decorating, ornament painting, face painting, and a petting zoo.
Rachel and Daran had tae kwon do grading on December 11th. Rachel has a green stripe now and Daran is a blue belt.
Well that should catch us up for now.
