Fall is here!

Well, for the moment anyways. Georgia always has a warm front, or eight warm fronts, that move in after the official start of Fall.

The air is cooler. The leaves are changing. Pumpkin candles are lit. And my hoodies have been moved to the forefront of my closet. Woot!

Things are going smoothly here. Hopefully I'm not jinxing myself, lol. Scouts is fine. Soccer is great. The boys are absolutely LOVING Masters Academy. Which I'm thrilled about. I was really worried that the first week was a "oh this is cool and different" fluke. But they are a month in, and still just as enthusiastic about it so that's fabulous. November will see our first Masters field trip. We are going to see the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra and we are visiting the High Museum of Art.

I'm enjoying the Thursday time for myself as well. Since it's a little too far to drop them off and go pick them up again, I just hang around Athens for the day. Lunch with friends, errands, shopping, pedicures...not a bad way to spend the day! :)

No problems with school. Yet. They are plugging along with Time4Learning as always. Braeden is working on 2nd grade Dolch words this week in spelling. Bailey is working on words from "Treasure Island." I'm hoping he enjoys that book... Both of the boys are playing US States games too. Kinda cool to try and memorize all 50 of the states. That's all I'm asking of Braeden right now, but Bailey is also working on the state capitals.

I'm still working on posting more Dragon*Con pictures. That will happen. I promise. I have to find my camera. :D This past week we spent days, DAYS, working on cleaning and thinning out the house. This is hard for me. Think "Hoarders." Anyway, we saw mucho progress and I am very pleased with what we accomplished. Having said that, I am notorious for putting things away when cleaning, only to lose them later. I really do thrive on that whole organized chaos thing. Once I locate the camera that I found a new, organized home for, I will post more pictures. :)

Hope everyone has a great week next week, and enjoys the first week of Fall!!

Thanks for visiting my blog.:) I love my crockpot.:) Homeschooling has been such a blessing for my family. We have been on both ends of the spectrum since I was once a classroom teacher. :) Now, I feel convicted to share what a blessing homeschooling can be to families. That is the reason I'm publishing my book. Hope you will visit again. I enjoyed reading your blog. :) We are really involved in scouting also. My son is an Eagle scout and we are leading the Bears this year with our younger son. :)

Blessings,

Hi Tiffany! Thanks so much for stopping by! :) Congratulations on your Eagle Scout! My oldest is working on his First Class rank right now, but has his eye on the Eagle. My youngest is a wolf, and I have been leading in one capacity or another since my oldest was a Tiger. One day, I will stop saying yes to everything, lol...one day. :/

Thanks again, and I will most definitely be visiting your blog again!
