We were going to begin our 12th week of school today but last night it hit me that we are almost 1/3 through our school year and we deserve a break. SO, we are having an unplanned, unscheduled Fall Break this week. I'm a "mean ole' school marm" and we ALWAYS have school. You pretty much have to be deathly ill to get out of school around here, lol. Seriously, I started school back up 10 days after Lucy was born! We take it pretty seriously, but still, sometimes you just need a break. NOW. =D
Life has seemed a bit overwhelming lately and well, when life gets that way, blogging is the first thing to go! =) Since it's been pretty quiet around here for the past couple of weeks (sorry!), here's a little glimpse into what we've been up to lately....
Miss Lucy is growing up way too fast! (Can you believe she's 11 months old!) She can understand so many things now and her little personality is really starting to shine. It seems she has changed so much in the last couple of weeks!
"Mom, this leaf looks so tasty...I don't understand why you won't let me eat it!? Can't you see I'm literally drooling over here???" =D
Lucy is still crawling, but is so, SO close to walking.
She's a stinker though...she'll stand there and smirk at you and then sit down.
Silly girl. =)
Yep, I'm always doing that!
(BTW, I love my clothesline...you need one. They are wonderful.)
And you need on of these too.
Big Sister's are awesome.
But you can't have her...she's such a big help to me!
"Oh, OH, Let's go fly a kite......!"
That's going to be stuck you in your head all day.
You're welcome. =D
(If you have no clue what I'm talking about, you need to watch Mary Poppins.)
Lydia's had that kite for a while and we finally got it out. It was so fun to watch and they had a blast!
Lydia's got a few new accessories...polka dot galoshes (LOVE them) that I found for $3 at the local consignment shop, and a heart monitor.
She's been a having a lot of moments through her days where she feels lightheaded and her heart feels like it's beating too fast. While checking her pulse during a recent "episode", something seemed really off, so she'll be wearing this for the next 2-4 weeks to make sure she doesn't have an arrhythmia.
This is Mr. Levi's uniform of late...his birthday cape (mostly worn backwards like a massive bib) and his rifle. He keeps me on my toes, but I just adore this little man. =)
Fall is so beautiful in the country....I need to take some pictures of all the leaves before they are all in the yard!
Oh, and I made these Philly Cheese Steak Subs on Friday. They were amazing. It was a perfect Friday night food. Best part was that I did it all in the crockpot! Well, except the bread...I did bake that in the oven. =)
How is your October going, friends? Is it flying by? Any "Fall Breaks" going on around your home?
