A Glimpse Of Our Week...
First Cross-Country Meet
(it was way too hot!)
Science Project- Atom Density
Field Hockey Game Saturday-
Our girls were totally outnumbered and we had no goalie. We won 3-1!!!
Daddy took Samuel and Emma fishing to a perfect little spot just big enough for them to be certain to catch something and they caught plenty!
We met them there for lunch and enjoyed an semi-autumn day. It was still warm but so much more pleasant than the rest of the week.
And upon sight of this little visiting snake we promptly ended our little fishing excursion.
I know you have to look hard, but his body was in the water and he was not a baby.
By the end of the summer, our kids always end up in bed together. Usually it is Hannah's bed because it's the biggest. Sometimes Emma & Hannah will sleep together or Hannah with Sam...sometimes all three.
It isn't something that we do every night, but maybe once or twice a week.
I came in to make sure they were still covered up and that Samuel was not too close to the edge and I found them in this peculiar position.
Both of them fast asleep....with Samuel clinging to Hannah's nose.
Fall is busy for us and I am while I enjoy watching them at their games, it will be nice when things slow down.
Hannah runs cross-country and has practice every day from 2-4 p.m. with meets on Wednesday afternoons. She also plays field hockey with practice once a week and a game on Saturday mornings. We try to keep the "one sport per child rule" but since XC is such a short season we decided to go ahead and let her try it this year.
Emma is still a very dedicated little gymnast. She is at the gym 4 days a week but she doesn't have her first "serious" meet until January.
Samuel is playing soccer with the homeschool group. The coaches are extremely talented and we are very lucky to have them. You can read more about them here.
Take all that and throw it in the pot with music lessons on Tuesday afternoons (Hannah-violin & piano, Emma-guitar), Homeschool Co-op on Wednesday afternoons, a full day of school each day, and with fingers-crossed... a bath, you can see that this pot might boil over any minute.
Busy but blessed :)
