I had one last fall Flamenco dance class. I'm really going to miss this! I finally got a fun skirt and shawl and now I have to move. I'm really hoping I can find someone who can keep teaching me in our new town. I love any kind of folk dancing!
Hailey and Josiah have been having a great time playing in the leaves, although this week, they've been playing in the snow. It was all fun and games until I realized how difficult it was going to be to get the leaves out of Hailey's hair. We managed to get it all our by combing her hair with a ton of conditioner in it.
Another visitor came to town (this one was a blast from the past). A Revolutionary War veteran stopped in to see our group of homeschoolers and tell them all about his role before, during and after the Revolutionary War. He brought a lot of equipment, Continental Script, etc for the kids to look at. He did a great job! The kids were fascinated as were the adults. I think stuff like this is the best way to learn history.
Last week we got to go to two harvest parties. The first was at our friends, the Weigand's house. The kids had a great time carving their pumpkins and even dressed up for it. It started storming so our plan to roast brats and have s'mores was thwarted, but we still had a wonderful feast and enjoyed Cora's amazing meat pies.
We are speeding toward our moving date (this weekend). So far I haven't had a melt down, but we're only halfway through the week, LOL. Please pray for us to have a safe and happy move. It has already been snowing earlier this week and we have to make several trips over the mountain pass. It is very complicated how we are moving everything (all our stuff is going to be split between a moving truck, storage sheds, another friend property, and my mom's house) until we can actually close on our new place and get moved in. So please pray that Michael and I can stay on the same page and that conflict will be minimal. Pray that our communication will be good and that we will both keep the stress level to a down AND that we will have clear roads.
Thanks in advance!
