While we did so some school work this week, it was something of a fall break for us because it was such a busy week. The weather has been so nice and the kiddos have enjoyed playing in the yard, chalking on the sidewalk and raking leaves (yes, they actually ask to rake leaves!).
Vince is in Alaska this week on a ministry trip with my dad and the night before they left we went to Nashville to meet my dad for dinner and drop Vince off to stay at the hotel with him since he was flying out super early the next morning (I was very thankful not to have to get up in the middle of the night to drive him to the airport). And then I had a totally unexpected surprise: one of my very best friends from childhood (whom I still keep in touch with-thank you, Facebook) turned up in Nashville on business. So we all met at the Rainforest Cafe for dinner and had the BEST time!!
It's so wonderful to have friends like Paula, who are truly life-long friends for always! It had been over 2 years since the last time I got to see her so it was a special treat.
The rest of our week was spent mostly around home, doing a little school each day, watching the leaves fall in the brisk fall winds, and catching up around the house.
There was good playtime outside, too, since the weather was mostly very nice. I love this time of year!
Then on Friday our 2nd quarter of co-op started up. This quarter I am helping teach an art class and we had a good time. The other classes include music, the election, and creation.
