This bus is rocking! You can tell our holiday starts today. No school till Monday, yay! I’m happy about that, just like the other kids are but truthfully I am happy because for the first time in my life, our whole family will be together for thanksgiving. It’s just gonna be the four of us. Sometimes we go to mom’s sister’s house but it’s all the way out in the suburbs and we don’t have a car. Besides we have our own family this year. I am so excited! Roxanne is too. She has been planning the menu. I never even knew Roxanne liked to cook. I just always thought she did it cause she had too; if she didn’t no one would. But she and momma say they are cooking a turkey and making dressing and some kind of salad. They were so busy talking about it I couldn’t hear them. I never heard them talk like that, all excited and smiling. Daddy just sat there grinning and when I looked over at him he winked at me.
