Catch up from a Crazy Few Weeks

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.
I had two nights of parent/teacher conferences, those are marathon days and it always amazes me what parents say.  Some are happy and excited what you do and others will pick a part a program that you spent hours on.  I understand and just keep trying to do my best.

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?


  1. So exciting to be waiting for Kota's mission call. Can't wait to hear!


  2. I wondered what you had been up to. Sounds like a lot! That mission call will be here before you know it. :)

  3. Time will slow for a bit after Kota leaves for his mission, but when it's over you look back and see how fast it really was! It's been fun seeing him at church. Thanks for all your help with the scout thing on Friday!

  4. AAHHHHHHHHH!!!!! Can't believe the papers are in!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe that time is here!! And how awesome was it that he has already had the opportunity to baptize someone?! Yeah, he's getting ready for that mission!
