Life has become so much more insane the past couple of weeks. I started my job, which means I'm gone all morning Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. It's amazing how cutting just those few hours out has made my craziness even more crazy.
We went to Parent/Teacher Conferences for Vicki tonight. We talked to her four core teachers (science, social studies, language arts, and math), and every single one of them commented on how she's "good at advocating for herself in class". Basically, what that means, is that my daughter is Hermione. It's fitting.
Less than a week until Halloween, and it's entirely possible that I may not have even begun working on the girls' costumes. Never mind that we have a Halloween party to go to on Saturday. Good times.
I'm grateful that Lexi chose to be a viking. Horned hat and brown dress, and she's good to go.
Now, anyone know how to make a volcano costume in less than two days?
We finally got our print from the family pictures we took this summer! I can't wait to get it framed!
On Saturday we went to the corn maze with our good friends, and afterward we went to the pumpkin patch. We told the girls they could pick any pumpkin they wanted, as long as they could carry it. The one Vicki chose weighed 33 lbs. It may have taken her 20 minutes to cover the ground it took every one else five minutes to cover, but goshdarnit, she carried that pumpkin.
After watching the Presidential debate Monday night, Ellie told Chris she plans to be the first female President. And the first thing she plans to do is paint the White House purple.
