Just wanted to pop in here to share a few things we've been up to as a family. Life has been super busy with school, fall activities, and my feeling much more tired than usual. I'm doing my best to keep up, but I can no longer make it through the afternoon without a little nap. Sigh. My doctor assures me that I'll stop being so tired soon, but I have yet to see the light at the end of the tunnel. Anyway, last week, we had our first homeschool program, of the school year, at the Kansas City Zoo. So, while Ezekiel was in class, Adina and I wandered around and even rode the train.
We got stuck watching Nikita for quite a while. The zookeepers were teasing him with that barrel from outside his pen, and when they finally handed it over, he was having the time of his life. It was so captivating!
I passed my old Barbies down to Adina. She's been wanting them for what seems like forever, but she still feels so young to me, and I'm just not ready for her to grow up. I think it will still be awhile before I'll be getting her any new ones, but in the meantime, she's having fun with mine.
Ezekiel has been working hard at his studies. He's been studying mammals in science and has chosen to dig deeper into the ways of the giant panda for his oral report tomorrow.
And I couldn't resist throwing in this photo from my garden. I don't think I've ever seen irises blooming in the fall, but I'll take it. They're ever so pretty!
Oh! We also made a fresh batch of guacamole this past weekend and shared a piece of the avocado with one of our littlest family members. Gosh, I don't think I've ever seen a slice disappear so fast; and that's saying a lot, because my hubby loves that stuff.
It's been a tough couple of months around our place. Just lots of things going on behind the scenes that I cannot discuss here. I know everything will get better, but it's all catching up with me and making me feel a bit defeated. So, I apologize if any of that has come across here. It's been difficult to want to feel creative sometimes. I've still spent time in my creative space, but it's been more to mend clothing items, work on some things for my church's upcoming Thanksgiving dinner distribution, and reorganize. Bear with me, though. We've got a fantastic, new, Wplus9 Design, holiday release coming up next week, that you're simply not going to want to miss. Well, I've got about a million things to get done before band class. So, I'd better run. Thanks so much for checking in on us! Be blessed!
