Project 365, Week 42

Three cheers for fall and all of its busy activities and beauty.

October 9
For 15 years, we've had a Columbus Day tradition of meeting up at the orchard, where there are hayrides, free donuts, music, etc....a fun festival. This year the rain threatened, so we changed plans and brought the party inside. The kids made caramel apples and played together. It was different but still so great to be with one another.

Also, we got to celebrate Nathanael on his birthday!

October 10
Daddy broke the "no screens before school" rule and gathered the kids around to watch the trailer for the new Star Wars movie. They are all delighted!

October 11
Shaun spent the week doing final projects on the other house in preparation for the buyer's inspection. Amanda wanted to be in the dumpster and then she wanted to be up on the ladder cleaning out the gutters. That girl!

October 12
A couple nieces/nephews joined me at the barn for a bit during J's lesson. Jenna quickly made herself at home, petting every single horse, cat and dog that was available and then making a friend with a girl not much older than her. She is something!

October 13
I think its now safe to say, the roof is DONE! Phew!

October 14
Marathon complete!!

After stopping at home briefly to shower, I spent my post race at the soccer field. Avery played and then immediately after Amanda and Aiden played at the same time (thankfully all home games), so I sat in between the two fields and watched both.

October 15
Amanda had a couple team mates sleep over. They biked and I walked down to the river/playscape.

Chillin' on the couch reading Star Wars with his feet bound. :)

Soccer game 5 of 6 for the weekend.

"Marathon complete." Are you sure that's all you want to say about that? Man. :)

And, yes, Aiden with his bound feet. Hahaha!
