Looking back at October - what a full, and fun month that was. We took some time to recover from the Mr's exciting scary adventure on the mountain. And then we jumped right back into the busy everyday life we have. The older kids ran their cross country meets, taking their times down at each meet. This girl placed 6th in pre-districts. I was so bursting proud of her. This is the girl who once told me, about 4 years ago, "I'm just not that athletic." I think the past few seasons of basketball, swimming, and now running, have proven that so wrong.
How am I going to keep up?
The Boy also did super in cross country, placing 19th for his district, and also breaking his personal best. I love watching my kids do well each week, and push for more.
The Boy is also starting to check out colleges. Gulp,I'm so not ready for THAT season either! He went to a college fair, and now is getting all kinds of mail from various universities around the world. His sister liked the sound of Dublin college, but I doubt my boy is going to wander that far away from home the first year.
We harvested a truckload, or two, of pumpkins this month also; we were able to sell some, and my front porch area was a beautiful display or oranges, white, and yellows.
And with that I am looking forward to the next months when there will be even more basketball - the Boy, and Little K will be starting up theirs soon; and there will be swimming meets, and 4-H; ah, yes, it's a crazy busy life, and I wouldn't have it otherwise.
