October you were absolutely insane :)   School has been delightful! I am really enjoying student teaching and thankful to be in such a terrific situation!   After fall break I took full responsibility of the class and it is so nice.  I know this is exactly what I want to be doing for the rest of my life.

The first weekend I was ready for a weekend at the Red River Rivalry!  I made it to Dallas and even got to go to a fancy steakhouse.  At around ten on Friday night Kaiser, (Ryan's dad, who was also in Dallas) called me and said that something was wrong with grandma and he would be heading back to Oklahoma that night.  I hopped in the passenger seat and we left around 12 to arrive in Bartlesville at 6:00 a.m.  We found out that she had a stroke and she is still on a looonnng path to recover.  Please keep her in your thoughts and prayers.  While there I found out that I spent the afternoon with four teenage boys - who are actually 3 adults and a 5 year old.  They had a ball at the go-kart course, which I was told my future children will love as well.

The next weekend we went to Austin!  GO POKES! I loved Austin last year and I absolutely could not wait to go again.  It definitely did not disappoint.  We got a free room out of the trip and the COWBOYS won!  Wonderful time.

The next week was a two day week with the students and than Kim and I had parent teacher conferences.  After that I went with mom and grandma to Affair of the Heart.  I was banned from this craft show at around the age of 10 due to saying "Are we leaving yet?" probably about 500 times.  They lifted the ban for this year only and gave me a test. They said I passed and was welcome again.  The next day (Sunday) Ryan and I want to the All-Star game in OKC.  It was a lot of fun!

This past weekend we spent Homecoming in Stillwater.  Walkaround, the orange fountain, the game and friends made it absolutely tremendous.  My story began at OSU and I will forever bleed orange.

Only 46 days until graduation.  :) I don't know what I would do without Facebook and Skype. I love when my favorites call me :)
