Here are most of the kids from the class
Train of Courage
Slade Porter was a backwoodsman who trapped and hunted for a living. Nobody cared much for him. He had a scraggly beard and always chewed tobacco. It was even rumored that he had a still hidden in the hills, but that could never be proven.
Emma raced to the now motionless body of the doe.
“She’s dead!” Emma glared at Slade. The stench of whisky on him seemed to overpower the fresh smell of the woods.
“ ‘Course she’s dead,” his words slurred together. “I killed her.”
“But she has a fawn,” cried Emma through clenched teeth.“Ain’t nuthin to me. This’n’s gonna feed me for a while, then I’m gonna sell ‘er hide with the rest of my furs,” he said while picking up the lifeless doe. “Like I told ya, ain’t nuthin to me.”
You'll have to keep checking my blog to read the rest of the story:)

The day after Thanksgiving it's become a tradition to go to Homestead Heritage in Waco. It's a lot of fun. It's a community that believes a lot like we do. They make quality items from furniture to food. They have a blacksmith shop, a gristmill, and a working homestead. It's over the Thanksgiving weekend, and they've had up to 5,000 people a day coming.
Saturday morning dad wanted to go to the Texas ranger museum. It was pretty interesting. Texas Rangers were noted for their ruthlessness to capture outlaws, and protect the border from raiding Mexicans.

Yesterday we went to a fiesta that our Spanish teacher put on for us. We have been having Spanish classes over the past few weeks at the church. Here are some pics:
some of Kaelin's funny faces!
ok, so the piñata, it is of my opinion that it was purely a tool for embarrassment. It was rigged where Andrew was able to raise and lower it, and on top of that they blindfolded and spun us around. It got very interesting, especially when Regina attacked the tree and about gave Andrew heart failure coming after him like a maniac waving that stick:) (remember she was blindfolded) The kids got off easy though, no blindfold, no spinning, and not a lot of raising and lowering of the piñata. Mom hit it to were the candy started to fall out, and Bro J. knocked it down.
