Where has the time gone?

It feels like yesterday was September and all of a sudden it is almost the middle of October. We have been a little busy around here. We have decorated for Fall, and Olivia has found a new hobby called vacuuming! I love it! She has taken the horns of second grade and came on full speed ahead! She is loving reading now, which makes me more relaxed. I need that since I have been spending the last eight weeks or so popping antihistamines and trying to figure out the abundance of hives all over me! I lived with this for the first five years of our marriage, and I am not about to do that again....but I must testify, this weekend has been so much better!

We are knee deep in American history, focusing on the Presidents and sights that they will get to see in November when we go north to Washington DC! Science co-op is so great, I hate to brag, but it is GREAT! We are in the middle of body systems which have proven to be very thought provoking to my kids. Apparently, my kids are the questioners like none of their peers. I got some doozies this week, and this is without even bringing the reproductive system into play! Oh my! Olivia shared with me how strong love must be for her to grow in my tummy, yet she looks like her dad....she knows it is cause we are married, but "that is some really strong love!" Yes, this is the kind of stuff I get!

We have two additions to our family. Bob and Dart!
This was craft afternoon when they were trying to channel Betsy Ross and plan their own flag!
Kay-Kay is now working at our local ice cream shoppe and that means we are visiting it a little more often. Monday nights are kids eat free night along with face painting and balloon man!!!! They loved it!
I saw this truck the other day after the GATORS lost so badly to Alabama! Funny stuff. Between the Bucs and the Rays, it is big fall sports around here!
You will hear no complaining from me about how great our weather has been this past week. We have been sleeping with windows open and the girls are starting school a little later due to yard time in the morning. The other day, they got tempted by the pool, it still looks so appealing, but after about five minutes in, they were out and chattering at the back door. It did not take much convincing for me to make them some hot cocoa with a marshmallow on top!
I was reminded again this past week at the uncertainty we have of really puts things into spilled koolaid and the getting out of bed one more time. I want to remember in each moment the blessings and gifts I have.

Thanks for sharing some of your "daily life." That's how time goes by so quickly - busy days! I'm so glad part of your schedule includes Wednesday nights at AWANA so I get to see you guys too.
