We are basically in survival mode these days. New job, new kitties, and all the regular "mayhem". Everyone is pretty tired and there really aren't enough hours in the day, but we are muddling through. Grateful to have our summer nanny back with us, helping with after school pick-up and activities. What else? Finishing up soccer season with a parent/kid scrimmage this week, fine tuning Halloween costumes, working on Saints costumes and reports for Rel Educ., Tae-Kwon-Do (we have 3 kiddos who just got promoted!!! will post a picture when I have one). Trying to find some time to get to Wisconsin to catch up with family. And, thinking about late fall activities--Junior Service League Holiday Home Tour (and brunch), hosting Thanksgiving, and Christmas card picture. Snapped this picture yesterday, ridiculous that Jane is sticking her tongue out. The blog maybe a bit lean for awhile, but that is how I/we roll.
