Checking in after the weekend since I hit the road at 8 a.m. on Friday and got back last night.

Friday, regular school day for the kids.  I took the day off, drove to my NY sister's house.  We drove to our Maryland sister's house, stopping for a picnic lunch along the way.  We hung out for the later part of the afternoon, then headed to the Melting Pot for a fabulous dinner.  Apparently, Ian worked on his homework and Kayleigh went cycling.

Saturday, sisters and I packed a yummy picnic lunch and headed to the National Arboretum. We took the tour, saw the orchid show and a few of the displays, and left before the rain came.  We spent the later part of the day having Game Night. At home, Ian and Dan did yard work.  Kaylegh took the SAT and spent the afternoon with her BFF.

Sunday, sister and I left Maryland at 9:30, headed home and stopped at Cracker Barrel for lunch along the way.  I stopped at the mall and went food shopping before getting home.  Kayleigh got home around the same time, had been at the movies with friends.

We had pizza and watched Once Upon a Time

Hello ladies! Typical day off for me, spent the entire day running errands, both kids to school, oil change, jordyn's car to the repair shop, picked up business cards and shirts for DH, ran and bought a dress on clearance for a wedding tomorrow, chiropractor's office, back to pick up jordyn's car and finally home for the evening. Tomorrow, my parents are taking e little ones to a chalk walk festival in town, jordyn is doing national portfolio day for colleges with classmates and will be home late. DH and I are supposed to go to a co-worker's wedding, and probably movie night tomorrow evening. Sunday, we are all headed to the pumpkin patch for the day! It's supposed to be in the low 70's, perfect pumpkin weather IMO!! And jordyn has work and practice in the evening. Have a great one!!

Sunday we are visiting my aprents to install their new computer and transfer over files, etc.  That will take up most of the day.  Zeph has a book due for Lit Group on Monday.  I don't think he has started reading it yet.


Gotta love the older generation with younger generation technology! I was at my dads yesterday to fix his computer. He has a bad cable so I just routed around it and got him back online. I just downloaded joinme on both of our computers so I can spock in and help him with stuff without actually going over there.  Comes in handy when he can't remember how to add and attachment or picture to an email etc. Don't even get me started on their cell phones! LOL

I am ready for bed! LOL This dreary cold weather does me in. My whole family is supposed to go to my nephews homecoming game but I am trying to cinvince my dh to either go alone or with ODD. Might not even be a conversation since the 2 new kiddos I am watching today were supposed to be picked up 2 hours ago and I haven't heard from either parent since 5am. I don't have work numbers, just cells and they are not responding to texts. Good thing they are real cuties and behaved to boot! ODD has her first bible quiz meet of the season tomorrow. We won't be going because of it being so far away, a long day, and money being a factor. Sunday is church and a football get together.

Hello everyone. Boy am I dragging today! Was up late "discussing" Evan's behavior and grades With the two of them. Waste of time. Went to bed at12:30 and had to get up at 5 to get Evan to swim practice. Work was easy so I made it through and really enjoyed spending some low key time with the kids.

I'm home having lunch, a nap, and then a trip to Megan's horse show and home. Almost 4 hours round trip but she enjoys it so much, it's worth it to me. Saturday we have to get up early because Megan swims in the morning. I volunteered to help with the meet both morning and afternoon (when
Evan swims). Sunday we will all probably sleep in and try to get some things done around the house.

The kids have off Monday and I work a short day so maybe we'll do the cake pops then.

Have a great weekend everyone!

Lazy morning here.  DH left bright and early and the rest of us slept in.   I've been working on our October calendar and setting up some events and registering for classes.  After lunch Zeph is heading to a friend's house until dinner.  Yesterday I took the day off and read, watched TV, and napped.  I have yesterday's work to do today.  DH will be home late tonight.  No idea on dinner.

Saturday Zeph and DH volunteered to help harvest prairie seed at Fermi Lab. In the afternoon, DH has stuff to move over from the old house and I have some organizing/cleaning to do.   I want to get it on the market by the end of next week.  We decided not to do the improvements the realtor reccommended.  It's going to be a fixer upper priced to sell.   I want to get our vacation pictures printed out and grocery shop also.

Sunday we are visiting my aprents to install their new computer and transfer over files, etc.  That will take up most of the day.  Zeph has a book due for Lit Group on Monday.  I don't think he has started reading it yet.

Afternoon.  I just got on my computer or I would have started this earlier.  

I ws suppose to finish canning with my mom and we decided we are done.  LOL  We loaded her car up with all her stuf and she just left.  I need to do the dishes and take care of some laundry.  I am having a PTS Conference with Matthew's Honors Biology teacher today.  He is not happy about this but if feel I am not told everything this teacher expects for certain assignments.  Plus, he needs to put more effort into this class and granted he is getting better.  Anyway, after that we have volleyball practice.  Our last one.  

Tomorrow we have volleyball tournaments and then we are done for the season.  I will be glad to be done.  We also are having a street festival in our downtown and we will be there having some fun before our games.

Sunday, not a whole lot going on.
