Falling In & Wrapping Up

Fall is the spot between the rock and a hard place for me.  I enjoy the beautiful oranges, reds and yellows it produces but hate what it arrival signals- the end of summer.  More importantly preparation for icy cold cheeks, boots, and bulky jackets have me looking less than pleased.

Lately we have enjoyed warm fall days with walks on the trails outside our house.  The sun smiles with us as we walk as many places as we can.  We have also enjoyed other orange sittings with pumpkin spotted porches and scarecrow lined yards.

Fall reminds me that no matter where we are as a family you can usually find us where there is a hope of a little orange infused ray.

Here's our week:

Eggs were on sale so I froze a few - 5 dozen to be exact!

-Home school meet up with Shannon and Family (Who can beat great company and a trampoline?)
-Sleeping! (I'm sure my children are on their knees thanking God as we speak!)
-Staying on top of my laundry- Again! Yeah!!!
-Kiran's rainbow-fest birthday

I wish I could have:
-Not given Cohen anything rainbow!

What they learned:
They learned about the number 10.  

What I learned:
That I can and need to control the words I allow to form in my mind.  It totally changes my attitude and the mood in the home.

That's our week in a nut shell.  Hope your week was as fruitful!

  2. I know what you mean about the mixed feelings... I try to get in as much sun as possible, knowing it's going to disappear for a looong time!

    Love the pancake stack!

  3. Love your honesty...and freezing eggs!! Your activities and including sleep....are all awesome. I let my kiddos sleep in this morning.... Thanks so much for linking up at the Homeschool Village. Your post is wonderful!

  4. Looks like a good week. I do not mind the summer ending, I do not like heat and my boys love winter.

  5. Hi, stopping over from the blog hop, it's nice to meet you. I feel the same way you do about fall. Of course I am in denial that winter is coming every year until the first snow falls.
    What a special rainbow birthday you put together, I think it looked really sweet.
    I didn't know you can freeze eggs.
    Hope you have the chance to stop on by my blog.

    Love the cakes.


  7. Wow. I didn't know you can freeze eggs and reuse them... I'm totally trying that the next time eggs go on sale! Do you always need to freeze the yolks and whites seperately?

    And your boys are just precious...


I would love to hear what you have to say. Remember the golden rule!
