*1st time dressing up for Halloween in 5 years. So maybe it’s called Rain Festival and on the first Friday of November with a theme and educational components but it’s also games, loads of candy and a parade. I was happy to be a flower and lead the 3rd grade class with their Impressionism theme for the Art Fiesta theme.
* 3 thanksgiving dinners in 3 days
*5 trips from Uganda to Kenya since August
*13 hours from Uganda door to Kenya door
* 2882 miles total
* 9.5 hours at the hospital for X-rays, scans and assessments to say I have a sprained ankle and knee issues
*13 -the number of days I’ve worn flats shoes and an ankle brace
*14 student acts at the exceptionally good school talent show fund raiser
*29 days-the length of time I have to continue wearing an ankle brace and boots-no heels even for Christmas-urgggggggggg
*66 minutes from entry to exit to find out that allergies have found me in Uganda
*75,000 ugx ($24.50) car insurance for the year. Crazy as I think about all the phone calls I received from my mother to remind me and remind me about monthly car insurance payments.
*120,000 ugx ($34.28) for a not so cute foot accessory and new shoes to fit the ankle issue
The fashionable shoes look so sad………….
*112 days back in the work forc
*220 pictures taken over the month-which are far too many to share here and seems to be too many to fit in my overcrowded icloud thingy-if you know me you know that my technology skills are in the negative
* 2854 parent emails sent this month to communicate events and news of the school (could all this updating be why I delay in writing updates and blog posts?)
* Countless things to be thankful for not just in the month of thanksgiving but every single day
* most pressing praises:
* On my heart these days is the privilege of having housing, not just one place but in Uganda, Kenya, and America. Plus a place to stay in many places across the globe with various friends
