Vacation has begun!

Yesterday was my last day of work until Jan. 4th! Praise the Lord! Now I can really relax and focus in on this season, family, friends, etc.
Today we are having our youth Christmas party. It should be a fun and exhausting day. =) This morning we're going down to Ivey Lane and throwing a party for 50 3rd-5th graders and their families who've attended all three FCAT (standardized test for FL) tutoring sessions at Ivey Lane Elementary. (We've been working closely with the school lately. We've also had Darden restaurant gift cards donated for the teachers, Starbucks Coffee for the teachers along with Panera bagels every Friday. These teachers live at this school investing into these kids with little or no encouragement and recognition.) Anyway, today these kids will enjoy hamburgers, hotdogs, huge blow-up slides, games, etc that were donated for this party. We've also collected toys for all of them.
Then tonight, the party for the kids is on the Parson's ranch. That includes the band from camp, dinner, bonfires, capture the flag, etc. If we're still alive by the end of the day, I will be happy!! I'll write more later when all is said and done.
Happy Saturday to all!!!
