In the great outdoors...Saturday David, Daniel and I went walking on a couple of trails in town. It was hot, I sweated way more than I wanted to, but it was a really nice time to be together. Today is warm. Ok, it's hot! Not!

Within our walls...The second week of school is finished. Yay!! I'm in a toss everything kind of mood, so there are quite a few trashbags heading for the trash.

A heart of thanksgiving...

A heart of prayer...The closest family friends we had growing up were the Walkers. We spent so much time at their house, I considered it part mine. Aynn and Ron treated me like one of their own, and I loved it. Ron is in his final days and I'm praying for his family and friends. I know if I'm as saddened by this as I am, those so much closer to him are too. 

Random observations...It's that time of year again. Acorns are falling! I get so excited when I get to step on them and hear them crack. It's weird, right?

From the kitchen...Tonight we're having chili dogs for supper, for a couple of reasons. For one, the kids and I like them, secondly, Stephen works Friday nights. Except last night he switched with someone so he is working today. Which means the chili dog supper will have to be put on hold. He just doesn't love them like we do.

Sounds of the moment...It's quiet. All the kids are home, but no one is talking, the tv is off, just the sound of the ceiling fan whirling above my head. Wow!

What I'm wearing...Shorts and a t shirt, socks of course. I did work today and wore better clothes though, these are just my comfy clothes.

A favorite thing from the week...I guess it would have to be the football scrimmage Tuesday night. Having Daddy here, watching Samuel play, it was really fun.

Sometimes school gets interrupted by magic tricks!
