Hey friends! Things have been oh so wild and crazy around here what with devotionals, #Sentprints, our first official semester of homeschool, and well...five kids under six.
So I thought I'd give you the highlights
1. Nature attacked. In one week our dog got skunked (and let in the house), I got stung by a wasp (evidently I'm allergic), and we literally had water lapping up against our front and back door. I'm generally a fan of the great outdoors, but I was pretty much ready to hide away in a high rise tower downtown somewhere.
2. We did the official, it fall you should have pictures at a corn maze/pumpkin patch thing. But we did it with our friends which made what would have been a harrowing experience really fun!
3. Homeschool has been great. And hard. And horrible. And wonderful. I'm having a lot of feelings about it. On one hand watching my two oldest learn to read has been a thrill like whoa. On the other hand I find it challenging to live in the chaos everyday. It helps that we do a lot of learning Thriller and playing dress up.
4. Russ camped with the kids in the backyard, WHILE I SLEPT IN THE HOUSE. Someone give that man a trophy pronto. Also if you have never experienced my oldest son telling a story, you should. It is magnificent.
