So what happened with the clan since homecoming...where do I begin?
The girl that we have been having discussions with got baptized. By my son. Wow! I love that our guys hold the priesthood.
We did some local farm visits to pick up our pumpkins and gourds that we decorated with. We can't beat the little roadside pick you own and pay with the honors system. Inexpensive and gorgeous.
Then I spend 3 days and 2 nights for our annual outdoor school with the kids. This year we worked really hard at getting our common core lesson plans and new techniques for intervention squared away. We worked so hard! It felt good to get so much accomplished.
Kota's been home for about a month now. It is like he was never gone. He has grown, he listens more than he used too, I hope that keeps growing. Maybe I've grown too. I am slower to react to the snippy comments that we do to those we love. I enjoy getting a Kota hug daily. I really missed those.
We are in full preparation for the mission. Papers are submitted, we are just waiting for the bishop to send them on. We are hoping for the mission call by Christmas.
So much going on. There are a lot of changes on the horizon. I can't believe November is already 1/2 over.
Where does the time go?
