I love October! Things just seem to click into place in October. We more or less have our school schedule down pat now, we’re happily ticking off our list of projects, and the kids know what they’re going as on Hallowe’en. 😉 The weather is so much less oppressively humid and even cooled enough this week for the heat to be on at night!
We’re still plugging away at our home improvement projects. Sometimes it’s just moving a picture to another room, and sometimes it’s laying the extra wood from the hardwood floor projects down in the stairwell.
We also acquired a new bed for our room.
It doesn’t exactly keep the toddlers out, but we’re a tad less crowded when they arrive.
New furniture in the mail = CARDBOARD BOX HOUSES!
Star Wars Overhype, anyone?
The children wanted to carve pumpkins the first week of October. Of course I talked them out of it. No one wants half-rotten pumpkin faces festering on their porches, after all. Unfortunately, though, I guess I could have let them carve a couple of them….
They rotted without our help. Next year, all pumpkins need to look like the one at the top of the stairs!
