Fall is well upon us. Parts of Halloween costumes are all over my house. Candy corn fills the candy jar, and life is good. Here is our week. . .
Sunday: A sweet moment of family love. We were singing some songs tonight, and they were nicely sharing a book. And then about 10 minutes later they were fighting over it (didn't get a picture of that), but we will take what we can get :)
Monday: Miss E is in an African drumming circle group at school. She loves it. Miss A and Miss O were also in the same group during elementary. They performed on the town square tonight. They did a great job.
Tuesday: A restaurant about 30 minutes away does a "talk show" some evenings. They interviewed my dad and talked about his art. It was fun to see.
Wednesday: The kids get out of school early each Wednesday, and with that extra playtime Miss E and Mr J decided they were going to be explorers today. They drew a map that Mr J has on his clipboard, filled backpacks with supplies (crackers, blankets, gloves) and Miss E grabbed her walking stick and they explored the yard for hours. Too fun! Love kids' imaginations!
Thursday: Had my parents over to celebrate my Dad and Ben's birthdays. Love having them close.
Friday: Today was Ben's birthday. His cake was a coconut cream pie--so yum and his favorite. Happy Birthday sweetie! Sure love you!!!
Saturday: As mentioned in an earlier post, this was the end of the season, put the lawnmower away day. Mowed the lawn for the last time, then Ben changed the oil, got it ready for winter, etc, but there was still gas in it, so Mr J and Miss E had lots of fun driving the lawnmower all around going about 1.5 mph to run the gas out. Good-bye lawnmower!!! See you in the spring!
Hope you all have had a good week and that you have a spooky Halloween!!! I think we will have a private investigator, Amelia Earhart, either a dinosaur or Darth Vader, and a just plain teenager at our house Monday night. Stay tuned to find out. . . :)
