Band-Aid ... to remind you to heal hurt feelings, either yours or someone else's.

Eraser ... to remind you everyone makes mistakes. That's okay, we learn by our errors.

Candy Kiss ... to remind you everyone needs a hug or a compliment everyday.

Mint .... to remind you that you are worth a mint to your family & Me.

These things we need to always remember our children will cherish them to know that simple things can mean much more specially in GODS eyes!

Since we have started school the kids are doing well. They have enjoyed reading and doing work that goes with Lewis and Clark expedition all the neat things they ran into.The cultures and land. 

They have done quit a bit but there is always more to do. My husband Thomas, Jon-Jon, Makenzee and Lileigh are so lucky they are headed to New Mexico to see my Mom and Dad. The are planning on stopping at Copper Breaks State Park to put tent up and sleep then explorer the place. The will resume  to New Mexico after they explore the area. What an adventure. On the way back they are are going to Palo Duro Canyon State Park TX.. They better have lots of pictures! I explained to the kids that they are being a Lewis and Clark and try to find something new and have fun!

 I am so missing them. I have not talked to them since 7:30pm last night. Being away from them isn't what it is cracked up to be. Sure I have Abbigale here but it would have been so awesome to go with my family. The words can not describe how I hope my children are taking in everything and will remember this trip with there daddy the rest of there lives. What an adventure!
