In the words of Asher from about 8:50 p.m. last night: "Well, that was a fun weekend!" It was!! It was also a pretty full weekend, and I am kind of tired right now. But I'm going to need to rally, because it's a) only Monday and b) Halloween, meaning the festivities are not over… Continue reading Halloween Weekend: Events
Home from D.C. and pre-Halloweening
Ethan is home safe and sound! 🙂 His group flew in last night fairly late and we had to pick him up at school at 11 p.m. The 8th graders didn't have to go to school today, but I still had to get up early and get Asher off to school and then work and… Continue reading Home from D.C. and pre-Halloweening
Appointment overload + a gratitude spotlight
As is often the case with me and my blog, I have two very random things on my mind this morning. (This is precisely why I don't do "themed" posts or plan what I'll write about in advance. These extremely insightful posts I write.... they just have to come to me, like a lightning bolt… Continue reading Appointment overload + a gratitude spotlight
Halloween 2021 Highlights
Yay, Halloween was so much fun! I'm rather tired now, however, and I think teachers everywhere will be facing some sleepy children today, too. 🙂 Here are the highlights from our day yesterday: I ran some errands in the morning- grocery store/ Target. The cloudy morning turned sunny by the time I left the store,… Continue reading Halloween 2021 Highlights
The weather turned grey, blustery, windy and cool, right on time for Halloween night. 🙂 How appropriate! October seemed to go really, really fast, which makes me a little sad! I like October. I have a little feeling like it sort of slipped away from me. But I also know I did enjoy it, too.… Continue reading Happy Halloween!
Good morning! Short on time today, but here's a quick Friday 5 of misc. stuff in my life: 1- I stayed up too late watching the Packer game last night, but it was WORTH IT, with a crazy ending and a win over the Cardinals of 24-21. Being the good empath that I am, my… Continue reading Friday 5
Some fall fun
I think because it's been so warm, I'm having a hard time believing that it's already October 13th today. But it is! We haven't done too much yet in the way of "fall fun". I'm thinking this probably isn't going to be the year that we do "all the things" for fall. With the various… Continue reading Some fall fun
Halloween 2020 and on to November!
Halloween 2020 is a wrap. This is basically the end of "fall" to me, too, although November is obviously still technically fall. Things just start moving full steam ahead toward more of a Christmas feel I think, and the weather here usually turns colder, darker, windier, etc. Last night was a pretty quintessential "Halloween night"… Continue reading Halloween 2020 and on to November!
Band Asher is in the school band and plays percussion. Even though their school is back in person, band is still being done virtually (the teacher goes to 6 different schools, so decided to keep it virtual to avoid interacting with many groups). Totally understand the reasoning, but it has been really, really bad for… Continue reading Friday 5
Crazy- it's October 29th already! Now only 2 days until Halloween. Besides working on the "Where's Waldo" pumpkin, this week hasn't felt particularly Halloween-y to me though. We still need to carve pumpkins! This always seems to get put off until the very last minute, every year. I don't know why. Maybe we all like… Continue reading Pre- Halloweening
