Wrapping Up September and MIA

Wow!  This is only my third post for the whole month!  
I tell ya...it's been KuH-rAzY Busy!
Here's what we've been up to at school...
A little of this...A little of that!
Johnny Appleseed Unit
We began a lapbook on Johnny Appleseed and All About Apples.  Last week, we finished our Johnny Appleseed part, and we'll add the All About Apples to our lapbook.
Thanks for the emails of concern!
I know several of you have been following the case of Megan, my neighbor's daughter that was murdered, dumped and burned back in July, that I posted about here.
Here's the latest...It has been a nightmare...to say the least.  
There is a prime suspect, and he is one BOLD person!  He has made threats to the family and has had contact with one of Megan's sisters at a local ballgame where introduced himself to her as "I'm the prime suspect...I'm Donnie Mother Effin' Jones and you don't want none of this!"  He has a rap sheet a mile long and seems untouchable.  We've had police patrolling our neighbor constantly.  I've hardly slept at night for fear of this guy.  He has raped before among other things, and has gotten off because his mother and her boyfriend are known in the community.  They have hard evidence against this guy, and at this point, we are just waiting on the DA that is over the county where the location of the murder actually took place.  I won't go into the horrific details, but I will say that she was lured by this person's wife who commuted to nursing school with Megan.  She was raped, beaten with a crow bar, dumped, and burned.  There are too many twists and turns to go into it, so if you'd like to find out more, here are some links for you to do so.  This past Friday, the suspect's home was searched after a tip...and since he is a 4 time felon, and they found a firearm, he was arrested.  He won't be getting out anytime soon...we can all now breathe a sigh of relief!  And maybe this will help the DA to get his act together to charge him for this horrifically brutal crime against Meg!!!
Anyway, you can do your own research on this if you choose to from the links below.

Remember Me???

Obviously, I've been away from Blogland for a bit!  I have hardly had time to turn around since school began!  After some switching around of teachers {thankfully not me, but in my grade level} due to increased enrollment, and shifting of some kiddos {which did effect my class}, I think we are settling in.  Then, those little kiddo germs attacked!  I hate being sick so early into the school year but a doctor's visit was in order, and with that, orders to stay home for a day!
Now, here we are with a three day weekend...Yay, right?  Wrong!  Kidney stones aren't something to celebrate!!!  Friday morning I was in a dress and heels, taking school pictures with my class...two hours later, I was in a hospital gown, hooked to an IV, and begging for drugs!  OMG!  It came on so fast!  I've never experienced kidney stones before, and I hope and pray I never do again!  I got home yesterday afternoon, and now resting comfortably!  PTL!!!  But we did have to cancel our trip to the Tennessee Aquarium with our sweet little grandgirl.  :(  We'll make that up soon though!
And I pray that this isn't how the rest of my year will go.  

And I am going to break the ultimate blog rule...I'm going to post more than once today...EEKKK...so I can get caught up some.  I hope that's ok!
Many Blessings,
