As I've mentioned before, we're in a crazy season of adjustment. Homeschooling is going well, but man is it a lot of work! I was telling a friend, "Homeschooling is great, I just need to get a cook, a cleaner, and a personal assistant!" :)
I still try to squeeze in an hour or so from time to time to write my posts, read blogs, catch up on my Nate's and soak in some interior loveliness. It's funny... I really wasn't sure how blogging was going to fit into our new routine. And honestly, most days I'm thinking, I don't know how much longer I can keep this up. But I keep coming back to it. For me it's a creative outlet, it's personal and I really relish in doing something just for me at the end of the day. God clearly has me wired for this and I'm still drawn it no matter how tired I am.
Here are some pictures that helps to sum up my world the last few weeks.
A field of gorgeous orangeness. I have to admit, the cold of the fall is not my favorite time of year, but this is beautiful and oh so sweet.
Me and my gang.
Off on a leaf hunt. We just discovered these awesome trails by our house. A few minutes into these trails and you really feel like you're in a forest! The best part... this was part of our school day! Science - learning about the changing of the seasons and trying to identify leaves.
One of the gifts of homeschooling... seeing our kids growing closer together. The olders helping and teaching the youngers.
And the boys have started soccer. Our Saturdays are packed.Have a great weekend! We've been blessed with a few warm, sunny fall days this week. Get outside if you can! There are few things more beautiful than a sea of orange and brown against a clear, blue sky. Me... well, I have to admit, I've already busted open a can of spray paint before the weekend has officially started. You know what I'll be doing. :)
See you Monday!
