Blessed are those whose strength is in you, who have set their hearts on pilgrimage . . . They go from strength to strength, till each appears before God in Zion.

Thankful Thursdays!

1. Our last Family Night was tonight! Yay!!! The best part was we didn't have to plan ANYTHING - a free trip to the Children's Museum!

2. Crossing off something from my "Majorly Daunting and Oppressing To Do List" everyday this week. Yay for being responsible and proactive!

3. My public school students wanting to say a prayer before they ate their lunch in our classroom today.

4. The week quickly passing.

5. Trusting that God will work out the details of our upcoming speech competition - the one that was supposed to take place in MAY but turns out is APRIL 23. YIKES! (You can pray for the 6 little ones participating. I'm not sure they even understand what they're getting themselves into - they're only 5, 6 & 7! And tomorrow I'm going to have to change one of the girl's speeches and pray she learns it all in less than two weeks. Oi!)

6. A new episode of The Office tonight. FINALLY!

7. DVR to recored the aforementioned episode since I was at the museum.

8. The British government making applying for visas so much easier than before! Yay for user friendly websites and online apps!

9. Airfare to London during peak season dropping from $2,000 to $1,000. Can we get below (or at least around) $800, please?!

10. Grace to finally talk to my principal about my plans for next year and her SUPPORT and BLESSING in my endeavor! She thanked me, THANKED ME, for telling her now, since she's making plans for next year. You don't understand what a miracle this is, people! God can do some amazing stuff!!!

Rememeber to clear the cache (sp?) on your computer before you check flight prices (the info the websites save on your computer) because you'll be more likely to get better deals that way, because they won't be able to tell that you're the same person coming back. Does that make sense?

I actually bought a cool postcard to send to the kids when i was out this week. Now all I have to do it write it and post it, and it might arrive in a week or two!SOrry it's taken me so long.

So what did you think about the new ep. of the Office? I won't give anything away in case you haven't watched it yet...but geesh! All I could think about was...these guys are really married in real life. Geesh! Do they really think this is funny? And "geesh!" we have friends who have marital problems and have called the cops on each other several times and it is NOT funny. Hope that didn't give too much away. It just struck me as sad that I waited all season to see that. And BTW if I was Pam and dating Jim and he did that to me -actually followed through with what he was planning on doing...well, we wouldn't be dating anymore.

Thanks for the reminder, Debs! And no worries about the postcard. They didn't even know you were sending is, so they won't mind they haven't received it!

Yeah, it WAS a weird episode, Dani! I'm glad Pam was clever enough to keep Jim from walking out that door! And surely he wouldn't have REALLY left her . . . surely not . . .
Did Michael and Jan call the cops on each other? I thought the neighbors called the cops because of all the shouting.
