Monday we got the best news, the hubs was released from his job duties in Wisconsin!! The kids were so excited, as I was too!! Five weeks was way too long!!
We had a great week, spending some time with grandma, seeing grandpa, enjoying the hubs being back home, and finally some fall weather. We had a short week of school this week. Last week we did a 6 day week and we are actually two weeks ahead of school right now, great place to be! So we are taking a fall break!
On Tuesday, Abigail had 4H and enjoyed learning about trees and leaves, and rabbits. I enjoyed it too because I got to spend some time with my mom and my homeschool mama friends!! Tuesday we also celebrated my moms 60th birthday!! We took her out to eat to her favorite places here. Patti's and Mama D's!! Wednesday my hubs redid a cabinet that is now in use in our school room, love it, much better then the diaper changing table I was using. We also said good-bye to my parents, my dad picked up mom on his way through and they headed back home with a load. Thursday the sun was finally shinning after a few days of rainy weather! We moved three bedroom sets around, so Abigail now has a big girl room, and we finally set up our king bed, and our guest room now has a nice queen bed! Tonight is movie night!! Tomorrow, we are going to go support one of our favorite little boys doing a fundraising walk to raise awareness and funds for apraxia. It isn't too late to join or donate, check out the link here: http://secure.apraxia-kids.org/faf/home/default.asp?ievent=1103625
This weekend will be full of outside activities and time with church family too! I hope y'all are enjoying the fall weather and activities!!
I want to encourage y'all, especially you mama's to go check out my friend, Kristin Taylor's book:

Truth be known, all of the pictures I have of my childhood are great. But, I am thankful I don’t have a childhood filled with memories of my Mom and Dad on their phones – or behind their cameras every second we were together. http://momsmustardseeds.com/2014/10/day-without-pictures-smartphone/
