A dear friend's husband is coming home for R&R. He has yet to meet his youngest, who is 5 weeks old now. Can you imagine that emotional reunion? I can't wait to see the pictures of Gary with his youngest.
I lost my Gymboree coupon. They used to just have a universal code you can use, but I guess they've done away with that. Each coupon has an individual code. Sheesh! I need to buy a few more things for my girls. The boy has outgrown their pants but not their shirts. Luckily, he has enough shirts.
The last couple of Fridays have been COLD. Usually, I don't mind the cold weather in October, but it makes for a very unpleasant hour at the 40 Days for Life prayer vigil we are participating in. The mornings, 10-11 sounded great back in August.
We will be having houseguests in a couple of weeks again. My mother-in-law and sister-in-law will be coming in for Ben's promotion ceremony which takes place on November 5th.
We have had an unusually cold, wet autumn thus far. Usually, the heat lingers on into October. I think we'll even have cold weather on Halloween. Now, I hope it stays cold through Thanksgiving too as usually, we are all usually in warm weather clothes. There's nothing worse than cooking in a hot kitchen in a very warm November.
I still have costumes to make. Many, many costumes to put together. Well, 4. Ben is working on parts of it, but the sewing falls to me. It would be easier if I would just fork out the money for it. I don't know why I have no trouble paying $65 for ballet costumes but can't seem to pay a lot of money for Halloween costumes.
School has been really light these days. Luckily, we are getting loads of science (Magic School Bus) and history (Liberty's Kids). I hope to get us back on track Monday. The beauty of homeschooling is that we flow with the curve of our lives.
