Open house at GL

Good morning, it is Friday.

Last night was open house or curriculum night at Grass Lake. Lillie did not want to come, Maren was good either way (as long as one of us was going...Preston has the same teacher as he did last year and we are happy with everything), and Hansen was on the fence. Right when it was time to go Hansen was not going to go, then at the last second he decided to come along. We went to Preston's class for the presentation, then Hansen and I went in search for Mrs. Behrens, Hansen's teacher for Kindergarten and 2nd grade. We first got to run into Hansen's old friend Anessa and they kind of said "hi" to each other, but were both glad to see each other. Then we walked into Mrs. Behren's class and even though it was full of parents waiting to talk to her, when she saw Hansen she walked over to him and "Hi Hansen, it is great to see you, how about a hug!". Well, if David Letterman was to do a top 10 on the Top 10 ways to embarrass Hansen, the number one way would would sound something like "And the number one way to embarrass Hansen is to, da da da, stop talking to the room of adults and say "Hi Hansen, come give me a hug!". It was very nice and it was nice to see Mrs. Behrens if only for a minute. Hansen froze solid about three steps into the room and Mrs. Behrens never got a Hansen hug, but is was all good. It will be interesting to see if this visit to Grass Lake makes Hansen wish he could go back to Grass Lake, or if it will be a little closure for him and he will be more settled at Cedar Valley.

Today is Friday and we have no evening plans. I think Maren is going to pick up a pizza and then we will have pizza and watch the Presidential Debate. Will it take place? Will it not? Would anyone believe anything G.W. Bush said ever, and should anyone believe him now? Will there be a $700,000,000,000.00 bail out for the banks and will that some how find buyers for all the houses for sale in our neighborhood? And if so, is that all it would take to restore an entire economy? And if the bail out does not work, what kind of economy would the kids inherit? Interesting news times, maybe the Northwest United States will be sold to Canada before the 2010 Winter Olympics and we wont need passports to check out the show. Anyhow, have a good Friday.

See you tomorrow.

Whoa Julian, you ask the hard hitting questions... maybe you should lead the debates!

At this point I think the question is whether or not the Biden/Palin debate will happen...
