A Whole Week?

Has a whole week gone by since I blogged? Wow! I guess a lot has gone on since then. Or maybe not. :)

Let me think...

I went to another library sale! Yes, another one. I found some wonderful books to use for school and some books that I bought just because they were old!

We celebrated a birthday with cousins.

Our refrigerator broke. Well, okay, it was just the ice and water in the door. But that is really important to us. :) It was leaking all over the kitchen floor. The carpet was soaked. Whe the dh went to turn the water off to the fridge, the handle broke off in his hands and water started pouring all over the storage froom floor. We found the main shut off valve for the water and fixed the handle/valve. We have not, however, fixed the valve on the refrigerator and we still don't have water or ice in the fridge. :(

We started week 12 in Tapestry of Grace. We are still loving it by the way!

We had soccer practices in the freezing cold. Seriously.

We went to a Pumpkin Patch for a field trip and froze our hinies off. I made the girls wear two shirts and they wore their heavy coats and they were still cold! We had fun and then got in the car and ate lunch on the way home!! Now I have pumpkins rotting on my front porch. :)

We had a virus in the house that I thought was strep. For two days our second oldest was either in bed or on the couch sleeping. It was not strep, I don't think.

We got out the long sleeve shirts, wore them and then got the short sleeves out again!

We went grocery shopping. That may not sound like a big deal; but, we hadn't gone shopping in over two weeks and we were down to nothing.

We went to the Fall Festival at our church. It was fun. They brought in a 'bird man' who runs a refuge for injured birds. He brought owls to show us. One of them flew right over our heads. It was so beautiful. Our oldest was enthralled.

We are getting ready for more soccer games, tomorrow. Just two more and we are done for the season! WOOHOO!

I think that about sums up the last week. I have some more pictures but don't have them on the laptop. So, they will have to wait until I get them from the main computer.

OH, I also entered a bunch of blog contests and won one of them. I will make a seperate post about that one tomorrow morning!
