Obviously it has been a while since I sat down with something to say! The girls and I had a great summer with my family in Washington State, travels home went smoothly, and school started back up with no trouble transitioning to a set schedule. C is a 5th grader now *cry*, and J turned 4 in October *cry some more*. Daddy returned home from his long deployment and we were able to enjoy a lot of family time together, though we didn't leave home much, we enjoyed it all the same!
We have been working on some minor pre-school learning things with J, and keeping C well rounded and learning how to balance after school activities with school work, and play. We had some struggles in that area, but we are working back up to it again.
It is nearly Thanksgiving again, and we are ready for all things holiday! I have been busy keeping the house tidy and decorated nicely to go along with the seasons, as well as knitting hats and mittens and lots of other fun things!
I am so thankful for all of the things in my life!
