Today I walked Beth to school for the first time since I sprained my ankle. It was hard and it hurt, but I made it and I'm so glad! It was a very long day. Had a hard time sleeping, so I only got a couple of hours of sleep. Because I walked so slow, I missed JJ's bus coming home and he was home alone for about 10 minutes and he was so scared because "he couldn't find me." I felt awful that I didn't make it back in time, but it doesn't look like he will be scarred for life or anything. Just a really tired day!

It rained today and it just feels like Fall Weather! We finally were able to find a ride for our van to go to Orderville so my Dad can fix it for us. The kids enjoyed watching the van get put on the "big truck" and it feels so good to finally get it down there.

Another rainy day. I really do love Fall Weather! I made some Bone Breadsticks to go with our Spaghetti tonight - the kids LOVED IT. They really like it when I do fun stuff for the holidays. I really need to do it more. I just don't get into holidays anymore and everything feels like a hassle, but when I see the delight on my kids' faces - it gives me motivation to do it. Another successful Over the Hump Chat tonight too!

I have decided to do Fall Cleaning this year. My house has totally gone downhill since I sprained my ankle. It is time for cleaning and organization. I accomplished moving the bookshelves and all my office stuff into the bedroom today. I cleaned it all out - got rid of stuff and organized. It may not look the cleanest, but it is organized chaos - so it's much better. I am now using the little side table I got from Grandpa Baker's house to put my hard drives and laptop too. I spend most of my computer time in the bedroom anyways and now Joey can use the desk for all his computer stuff - which frees up my kitchen table! Things are much better now! I really hate housework - but it sure feels good when its done!

The kids had fall break on Thursday and Friday, so they have been home with me. I feel kind of bad that I didn't do anything exciting with them this week - but I think they just enjoyed being home and actually they have liked helping me sort through everything and clean. They have found all kinds of treasures that have made them happy. We cleaned up the living room today - and organized all the books and everything. It's looking really good. We did take a craft break today and made up some cute little paper bag puppets with some craft supplies that I forgot I had! The kids had a lot of fun and it was fun to see them smile and play together.

We just cleaned again today - finished up the living room and started in on the kitchen. We got paid so I did some much needed grocery shopping at Costco and Walmart.
I forgot to mention that on Wednesday, JJ came home with this amazing certificate. He is one of the students of the week at his school! He got some great coupons for some free meals at some restaurants. He is such a good friend and example and help to the other members of his class and his teacher and I'm so glad he has found a place in school that he enjoys! I'm so proud of him!

A regular Sunday this week. Church, Choir practice for mom, nap, and a priesthood meeting for Dad. I made some Ravoli for dinner and Beth was so happy! It is her favorite and I haven't made it in a while!
