Our weeks ~ October 21, October 28, & November 4

Our weeks have been full of many things...
Beautiful autumn colors (this is in our backyard)
 Abigail's second round of Botox on her left leg (see her faithful nurse?)
 Adorable cats who entertain us by playing in catnip, jumping windows in pursuit of insects, watching the printer in fascination, and (best of all!) snuggling
 A working weekend retreat in the lovely north Georgia mountains
 The magic of the first frost of the season
 The slow-paced fun of our latest science experiment (aka snail terrarium)
as we study animal classification
 Tree climbing (David is in the tree on the left)
 Schoolwork, schoolwork, and more schoolwork
 A 'mission of mercy' trip to cheer up my parents since my dad is down for the count with a foot infection and my mom is busy being his nurse:
With Grandpa during his daily IV treatment
 David and Grandpa hanging out at the pool
My first batch of 'real' soap (lye based soap with goat's milk & orange scent)
 The kids making pretty glycerin soaps with Grandma
 A fun picture from their yard, just because I like it!

Cousin/nephew/niece-love (and uncles and aunts, too)
 Back in Georgia again, to our chilly (but pretty!) fall weather...
from about October through March, if I am wearing pants,
you can be pretty sure that these are hiding underneath. :)
Football!  David wore his Broncos hat to cheer for Peyton Manning.
 The conclusion of our fall soccer season
Even a little bit of sewing & embroidery got squeezed into the schedule
 That's those three weeks in a nutshell! :)
