The Autumn Season Has Arrived

My favorite things about fall:


Apple Cider

Hiking in the woods



Raking leaves


Cool nights

Watching football

Carving Pumpkins
Colorful leaves

We stopped by our favorite apple orchard last week to pick up some apples and cider.  YUM!!

It's time to go back for some more ! 
 Happy First Day of Autumn!

LittleA's First Birthday

Happy Birthday to LittleA !! 
 She's celebrating her FIRST birthday away from home this year, in her new home at college. 
 Hope you're having a wonderful celebration with new friends. 
Here's a little treat for you:

See that white box on the table in the background?  That's a birthday box yet to be delivered.  I'll get it to the post office on Tuesday, I promise.  Did you know the post office closes at 1:00pm on Saturdays?  I do now.

Now here is a glimpse of LittleA at her very first birthday. 


New Beginnings

It's that time of year again.... September....and time for some new adventures.  Last Wednesday we dropped LittleA off at Cornerstone, and had a fun and tiring day.  LittleA loves her new home and all the new friends she's made in the dorm.  Facebook has become my new friend, so now I can keep track of her new adventure.  Go get 'em, LittleA !!
I am offically the parent of a college student.  Whoa. When did that happen?

Two weeks ago, LittleE began school at the career center as a culinary arts student.  She just received her uniforms so we (of course) had to take a picture.  They go to school everyday in full uniform as the school is all about professionalism.  I'm liking THAT very much.  Their rules on dress code get a definite thumbs up.
Showing off the new uniform.  Looks great!

I have to say the days have been much more quiet around here with the girls gone.  It's just me and the boys.
Now I'm gearing up for homeschool to start the day after Labor Day and co-op this coming week as well.
Lots of new things in the days ahead for everyone.
