Where in the World are the Weavers?

Short Answer: BUSY!  But FIRST!

Did you know November is PREMATURITY AWARENESS MONTH?  November 17 is World Prematurity Awareness Day.  Click on the purple picture to the right of this post and learn how we are going to Shine our Light at the State Capitol of Oklahoma that evening.  We would love to have you join us!  The Six Dream Weavers and March of Dimes want YOU to be included in the effort to prevent the premature birth of babies. 

  • In the United States, 1 in 8 babies is born prematurely.
  • Worldwide, 15 million babies are born too soon each year.
  • We’re working to address the crisis at home and abroad.

You can click on this link to a calender that will show you ways to get involved everyday this month.  We are already on November 5, so there is some catching up to do!

In the meantime, the Weavers have been up to illness, volleyball (now over for the season!), dance (1 month until Nutcracker Dream!),  Alpha Delta Pi board and committee meetings, March of Dimes volunteer training and recognition, Red Ribbon week at the elementary school (hats, crazy socks, wear red, team spirit all had to be coordinated), jack-o-lantern carving, Halloween (2 cops, a robber and a ninja - and no they DID NOT walk into a bar...), Fall pictures at school (which OF COURSE required new clothes), college football, Fall Back for the end of Daylight Savings, and Upward Basketball evaluations (Jake may just have mad skills).  WHEW!

A few pictures to help summarize:

Under Arrest!

This week is book fair week at the big kids' school.  That means Nana gets to continue her yearly tradition of going with each kid to the book fair with their class!  She is excited, but the thought of taking Finn with her is a bit daunting.  He has arms that are 10 times longer than they look!  Plus, she has to go on 2 different days - 5th grade goes one day and Kindy the next!  And on Friday night Britt and I get our own date night - of sorts!  He has agreed to help me chaperone the ADPi Date Party!  Sounds, fun, right?  We shall see!   The theme is "Decades" and each couple is supposed to dress up in outfits from their favorite decade.  At least that part will be entertaining.  I know my sweet husband is thinking - HOW does she get me into these things?!?  And, since my calendar now says November, it means I need to start scheming and dreaming on my Christmas cards.  Britt has taken it upon himself to update the address list, so I guess that leaves staging, pictures and card selection to me.  I'd better get busy!  Anyone want to take our picture (for free)?

And today is election day.  We voted early by going to the the county election board on Friday to avoid any lines today, but we are just glad we took the time to vote.  It is your RIGHT.  And one fought hard for if you are a woman.  Please use your voice, VOTE.
