It has been a great week even though I've been very busy and had my work schedule changed three times (how crazy is that!, every one is sick or just doesn't want to work). But it has been nice. The kids and I have our times. I have realized that I nag them too much and I need to be more encouraging rather than pushing them down (realized this today at about 10:30 right before finding the baby fish in my tank :) ). Tomorrow we are having our first States quiz, they are learning the states and capitals as well as where they are :). They have been studying hard I hear this week :).
I really am learning a lot here, and getting more confidence it seems and also finding some negative things about myself that I need to change, which is always good.
Well after 10 years I am going trick or treating again! I can't wait! Mary Grace and I are going to dress up as girls at a slumber party, we are going costume shopping tomorrow, it'll be SO fun. I will post pictures of it on my web site, and then figure out a way to put them here.
I was asked about the weather and leaves here. They are beautiful. I'll get some pictures tomorrow and again try to figure out how to put them here, if anything they will be on my web site, and I'm going to put a new link on there called Connecticut for pictures of just here :) It's not that much different here than Missouri for fall, a little cooler, and the color is greater but I think it's due to having more trees here than in Missouri. There are at least 5 times as many trees! Makes for some wonderful color.
Well I have gone on a lot today, hope someone is reading this :)
