Olivia is home for her short fall break, and we are all so excited! She has to go back on Sunday, so we are squeezing in all of the rest, food, and fun that we can. We are taking off from school today, but tomorrow we plan to have a regular school day.
This week has gone by so fast! Tuesday, Julie and Clay made the 11 hour round trip for a XC meet. Thankfully, our two Spartans coaches each drove an 11 passenger van and took the entire team by themselves. I was so weary from traveling--I was so thankful that Heather and David did that. Our boys and girls teams both did fantastic! The boys won 2nd place (coming behind the first place team by only 2 points), and our girls won 3rd place. We also had some individual runner's awards too. Go Spartans!
The weather is getting cooler here, and the leaves are changing on the trees. God's creation is so beautiful!
It's time to start thinking about your Christmas cards (if you send them). I wanted to take the picture for our card this weekend, but the boys need haircuts. So, I will take them during Olivia's Thanksgiving break. I will be thinking about and planning what I want them to wear. I may look at the cards on Shutterfly and choose my card. Then I can match the children's clothes to the card. Anyway, that's my goal for now. Choose the card and plan the outfits. I'll take the picture during Thanksgiving break and order them right away. I should have them ready to go out by the beginning of December.
