Just like that, October is a wrap. We squeezed lots of life out of it, for sure.
The sun is coming up so late now that the kids are experiencing it. I love it when they take a picture or report of the beauty to me. Mom, it looked like the sky was on fire!
Shaun turned the heat on in the house for the first time this season. Though its sad to me, I'm thankful we have such luxuries available.
The school nurse sent me this picture of Aiden being all about the K9 at school. Back in June when we got Ginger, he was afraid of dogs, even her. Now he's the best of the kids with her.
Aiden had a super cold evening soccer game under the lights.
The kids were beyond ecstatic about the snowflakes that fell after school let out. In a flash the snow gear was out and so were they. (Also in a flash, the snow turned to rain.)
My brother found a charming restaurant tucked away in the middle of nowhere where we met up for lunch to celebrate my mom's birthday.
Twelve soccer games (nine short ones as part of a tournament) and one cross country meet this weekend. On Saturday, I left the house at 6 AM and returned at 10:30 PM. When the state asked if we could do respite this weekend, I told them we had all the kids we could handle right now. ;)
One of Avery's games was over an hour away, but conveniently located minutes from a cousin. Sarah and AJ came to meet us at the field and it was nice to get some time with them.
The last game of the day and weekend...we got soaked!
