Abbey came home for fall break. Does every girl in a family of boys have food hoarding (or let's call it extreme possessiveness so it doesn't sound so serious) issues? I've heard from others it is true and not at all rare. :) I don't blame her in some ways-without this sign it would have been gone.
Those darn squirrels!
Patrick's soccer cheerleaders.
Another "victim" of nurse Janey.
Doing her homework like the big kids.
Andrew received the Faith in Action award for cross country.
I remember Patrick loving these guys (we have two) at his age also.
I felt really nostalgic this Halloween. Patrick was invited with a friend to trick or treat but I said no way am I losing him this early. I'm just going to pretend I will have a trick or treater forever.
We had to hide our pumpkins-those crazy squirrels again!
Andrew did go with friends and it was such a rush to get him there I forgot to get his pic, so this is in the dark after trick or treating.
In other news, Janey is doing great and really turned a corner about a week and a few days after surgery.
I have been running every morning and it feels so good. I need it. No skunk sightings, but I love the quiet and my little route and it makes such a difference in how I feel all day.
I have a stack of books on my nightstand that I always plan to start after Janey falls asleep but I can't keep my eyes open.
The weather has been lovely and we have been taking walks and admiring the gorgeous color.
Isaac's friend from Denmark visited for a long weekend, and it was so fun to meet her and get to know her. I think we asked her about 500 questions, but she was such a good conversationalist.
