|This year's corn maze.|
I am an early riser.
I like being up a few hours before the sun.
But this year's end to Daylight Savings (U.S. peeps) is killing me:
I'm seriously up for HOURS and HOURS before the sun.
And I tell ya, it's got me all upside down.
I can no longer "sense" when it's time to stop doing MY things and get the house going--waking up the kids, prepping for class, doing laundry, etc.
It feels like it's just pitch black every morning ... until 8am on the nose.
When. Will. It. End?
Soon, I think. November-something.
(Then I'll have something new to complain about: as it will be pitch black from 5pm on. Ha.)
PS: I hope you are having a great week. Our kids are on Fall Break and loving it. And to be honest, I am loving the lack of structure/schedules, too.
PPS: Dave and I are NOT on Fall Break, but we are good, too. Just not in any photos. Hahahaha.
|Bam and Papaya went to a Spooky Spa event at our local library. |
They made soaps, lip balms, and bathsalts.It was really neat.
PS: I learned to rotate photos, but this one still defaults portrait. UGH!
|We picked out our pumpkins at our favorite pumpkin patch.|
|Jr. was the Wheelbarrow-Guy. |
(Which is good because I still don't know how to operate one.
It's like calculus to me--just doesn't make sense.)
|Bam, Papaya and Jr.|
|The pumpkin patch. That seems like a lot of pumpkins, no?|
|I took this photo for Elder Meehan--because he would normally be our photographer. |
And I'd usually come home to find our memory card filled with random "mood" photos.
|Jr. and the farm kitty.|
|This past Sunday morning (some of our kids were sick with colds). It was an origami Sunday.|
|We went to a Mexican restaurant last night and our kids all ordered chicken nuggets. What the what? HELP ME!|
|We went to our friend Abby's missionary talk at church. She's about |
to leave on her full-time service mission for our church.
|LuLu bought Harriet a pirate costume for Halloween. It's hilarious.|
|Elder Meehan sent photos of his area's service project.|
|Elder Meehan and other missionaries in his area, on a community service day.|
|Elder Meehan (still making silly faces).|
|A group of missionaries from his area. He's on the right.|
|Elder Meehan and his companion with someone from his area.|
|And a missionary "selfie"--which makes me immediately MISS the heck out of Elder Meehan.|
