Project 365, Week 43

We've been enjoying our weather here in New England and right now most of the trees are so colorful and pretty.  We had a great week, it just ended on a sad note.

October 17
We joined Shaun at the football field and goofed around.


 My mind couldn't help but fastforward just a few short years from now when Avery will be sitting like this...on the highschool bleachers, doing her homework...it'll come WAY too fast!

 October 18
Snack time
October 19
The long driveway to Avery's dance class is beautiful.
October 20
Shaun found Aiden's tools carefully placed in the five-gallon bucket...they watch everything!

 October 21
Avery took the only pictures today.  We have lots of plastic at our house.
October 22
Too nice to not take a walk.
October 23
It was a sad afternoon for our family as we said goodbye to our Riley-dog one last time.
Later we went to Nathan and Laryssa's house where they were hosting a fun autumn karaoke party.
The kids were up til 11 having a blast with the fire, singing, hot chocolate, hayrides and endless adult attention.

So sorry to read about your saying goodbye to your dog. Despite all the hassle and mess that pets are, they really are a part of the family, aren't they? I'm sure you've many happy memories with your sweet pooch.

So sorry about your dog. When we had to put our dog down, we did the same thing. We took one last family picture and one with each of the kids! Then I made a collage of pictures of him for each child to have in their room. Pets are so special!

Bye~Bye Riley. So sorry. Nice to have the picture for the family. Sweet dog. Avery, we have an orange homework book, too. Cute hair on the girls at snack time.

Lovely pictures this week - even the sad one. He looked ready to go.

Even though I knew it was coming my heart was heavy for your family today!
