Snow in Seattle

I dont ever remember it snowing this much in November in Seattle. I love the snow though. I enjoy watching the kids go out and playing in it. One of the many benfits of homeschooling, I dont have to worry about snow days. The other day the boys spent all day outside, playing and sledding. We are suppose to go to Issaquah for Thanksgiving, but we will see. Right now the younger boys are outside enjoying the snow, making a snow man.

Wow, I can't believe that fall is now here. My trees are turning color. My vegetable garden was a sad. This is the first year I haven't had a large amount of tomatoes. On the plus note, I have had numerous zucchini. Tomorrow my goal is to make bread with them. I am off work the next 3 days. I am looking forward to it. I have been studying; and plan to spend the next several days catching up on studying. I like my psych professor. We only have 23 students in our class. My first class for AP is this Saturday. I'm nervous, only because I don't know what to expect. We will see. I took Jonathon, Thomas and Andrew to the fish hatchery in Issaquah. They had a good time.  Hopefully I can incorporate more outings like this in the future for the kids.

This week

Has been good. Jason's last day was Friday at UPS :)  So he is working for Cory again at the carwash. It will be nice to have him home in the evenings again. I know the boys' missed having him home. Wednesday is the first day of school for Matt. He will get his schedule at school that day. He is funny, he really hasnt said if he is nervous, excited or anything. My other boys will start their homeschooling this week. Jason and I both figured if anything, this next year will teach us on how they learn. I am excited because on my days off, we can go and do something educational. I really want them to get the opportunities to see and do things. Jon asked me today about karate lessons. Jason and I talked about it, and will look into it for him.  This next week will be busy for me. I will have fruit to can, Thomas has his shots/yearly physical appointment tomorrow, piano lessons, scouts. I think that i am going to get rid of my eating nook table/bench and put in cabinets so i have more storage. The boys usually eat at the dining room table, and i am rapidly running out of room in the garage ( besides i think Jason would appreciate getting back some of his space in their- i am slowly taking over,lol ).

Productive day

Today was a good day. I dropped off Matt at KM for his orientation, got my books for my classes ( which were cheaper than I thought); got some books for homeschooling, and got some house work done. I feel so blessed for things right now. I truly feel that Heavenly Father is taking care of us, and what's even better is that Jason feels this way too. I know that there will be trials, but that's ok. I know that we come out stronger and better once it is done. I'm glad today wasnt as hot as its been. Hopefully I can work on painting the house tomorrow; and the rest of the week. We will see.

Starting a blog

So, after playing around with this idea for several months, I thought it would be fun for Jason and I to start a blog. More post to come!
