Fall fireplace

Now if it would just get cold enough to use the fireplace...

If you give a mom some money...

she will spend it! Especially if the hometown furniture store is going out of business! Here's my new baby... and I got a desk, too, but I haven't gotten a picture of that yet. I'm too busy trying to load it up. :-)

Why are you so busy?

A friend asked me a couple days ago why I don't blog much. Well, since I'm just eating bons-bons all day, you know, I should have lots of time. ;-P

Well, this school-year has been especially busy now that Jacob has started high school. He's attending St. Thomas More Academy.
It's very rigorous but he's doing well. It's a real sacrifice to get him there and back everyday but we have one other family we're carpooling with so that helps. Several days a week Jacob has soccer practice or games, too. This picture of him on his first day of school was after he had shed the tie... it was in the 90's so he was burning up!

And now the other kids are having to adjust to the new busy-ness, as well. So far, so good. Grace is in the 7th, Mary in the 3rd, Lucas is a k-er and Emma's just a cute toddler roaming around in the background, playing and causing mischief. And of course, they all have their extracurriculars to boot. The new one for this year is that Grace has begun playing the flute in the homeschool band class Jacob was in previously at Neighborhood Academy of Music.

Oh, and I'm looking (and feeling!) like a "weeble-wobble" these days. ;-) Baby girl's doing great... kicking up a storm!
