Finally Friday

It feels good to have the weekend upon us and it is a three day weekend at that.  Of course, by Monday, I will probably be ready for the weekend to be over and the kids back in school.  LOL 

Rachel is going to the Keith Urban/Sugarland concert tonight, and then she is heading up to Megan and Scott’s tomorrow to help them celebrate Canadian Thanksgiving.  We wanted to get up to see them before the winter weather sets in, but we haven’t gotten our enhanced licenses yet. 

I wanted to let everyone know that Brad is doing very well.  We cried together over his loss of Grandma Nancy and then we talked about the good memories and ways we can remember her since there isn’t going to be a cemetery plot  for the boys to go to.  Brad is thinking of what kind of shrub, tree or plant his grandma liked and we will plant one in the spring in her memory.  Today his skill builder worked with him and she had a small bottle with a cork.  She had him write what he would like to say to his grandma and then he put it in the bottle.  He was very excited about that and showed me what he wrote.  I appreciate all the prayers, and I know that is what has made the difference.

I finished four purses today…all out of recycled clothing.  I will post them so you can see what you think.  Enjoy your long weekend.  :o)

I just found your blog, and I first want to say how sorry I am for your loss. Nancy sounds like she was an amazing woman.

Your "about me" section is so interesting! And your bags are just wonderful. :)
