Thursdays are long days. I take Balt to daycare and I stay late after school, not worrying about having to come home to walk him. I just have to pick him up by 6pm. Today was a nice Thursday, nothing eventful on my side of the building. We had a newspaper/yearbook club meeting. I brought cookies and halloween candy for the kids. We are making great strides. I came home after picking up Balt and taking him for a short walk and decided it was time to get a Jack O'lantern made. A week from tomorrow is Halloween, so it's time to get to celebrating. Erika complemented me on how very good he turned out. I was going for mischievously evil. I snapped a photo of her waiting to leave to see her sister. I am excited that she is heading out for Annapolis for the very first time since Jessi started at the Naval Academy. I hoping she'll send some photos my way this weekend. As for my #100happydays photo-- take your pic. I am loving the colorful leaves on the front yard and Jack O'lanterns do make me happy. While I'm happy Erika is visiting her sister, I am not happy about being alone for the weekend, although there's plenty to keep me busy with.
