Okay, so it's October. Where did September go? After Labor Day, I was going to be updating my blog daily, with pictures. (great idea on paper....) so, school is going well for the kids, I walk 19 miles a week, they each walk 9.5.
My son has already had his first bout of asthma/persistent croup. Not sure if it's a good thing or a bad thing, but I was able to keep on top of it and avoid an ER visit and hospital admission.
We entered things in the Deerfield Fair. I got a blue ribbon for a bag and a quilt, and a blue ribbon for a loaf of white bread. The kids got third place for their gourds (it was a wet summer) Griffin got a blue for his drawing and Sarah got a red. They both got first prize for their painted pumpkins.
We ripped out the stinky living room rug, sanded the plywood subfloor, painted the walls and ceiling a rich dark brown, the trim a cream color and the floor somewhere between the two, and got an area rug. Living room looks much more clean, less cluttered...and best of all..NO MORE STINKY, STAINED RUG.
So, I guess I have been busy, so neglecting my blog doesn't seem so bad. I'll try to keep up more often.......
