The week began with this shooting in Vegas. So much to think about. NPR has done some great stories this week. It was a windy week. I obsessed all week with backing up and organizing all of our pictures on google. I mean hours of my time. Voss took daily naps at home, for once- we'd been so out of whack. It was nice to get a routine. So, during nap time I did yoga once and worked on pictures listening to the wind howl around the house. It was pretty neat. I wouldn't say it cooled off. We still sweat at the park quite a bit. Monday was grandparents day at the girl's school. My parents joined them for flag raising and breakfast. It was sweet. I dipped out and went to the MOPS leadership meeting. It was a good one; a nice break! I got in a 5 mile run that evening. A week of dance, golf and park hopping again- loving the afternoon breeze! We had a photo session on Tuesday. Andrea was fabulous! How in the world am I going to choose 7 pictures!? We did dinner at Chick Fil A that night. Abby did pumpkin pics at school. Voss and I went running and did our own tour in the pumpkin patch. Marly went on a field trip to a corn maize on Thursday. Voss and I went to Wee Trade and got lots of great clothes for Ellie. Thursday afternoons are tough. It's just so much! I'm so happy Jessica brings the girls home from Girl Scouts- I think that would do me in! Friday we went to the zoo with Anne. I think the train ride was the highlight! Phil stayed home from work with food poisoning. Ugh. First Friday was that night. Hula hoops, jump ropes and trucks on the lawn! Kids up late! Phil got up early and played golf. We all went to the Amazing Acres Crop Maize. It was so fun! It was hot, though. I think since it's fall we expect cooler weather. So it feels extra hot when we don't get it. Sweating in the maize! We got ice cream on the way home. Ellie spent the night at her pal, Finley Cate's house. She was nice and spoiled. Clare babysat the other kids. Phil and I went to a football party at the McGraths. Our teams lost so we compensated with booze. So much fun, but out way late! This morning was tough. I sat with Aubree and all our kids at mass. The month of the rosary- makes it extra special when we do it as a family. We did brunch at Mellow with the Hershorins then sweat at the park after. They came over later for veggie burgers and brownies. Phil and I wasted a bunch of time watching OA this week. Now we're trying to get into something else. Suggestions?
