I can't believe how busy this autumn has been. I thought once the kids went back to school I would have all kinds of time to get to the many little projects that need to be finished. Uh, no. That hasn't happened at all!
Now that the kids are in school full-time there is not really a need for me to be at home on my own. As much as I like being at home and having time to myself, I also like the idea of finally getting a new kitchen, a new front porch, a new vehicle, a new....you get the idea! While we have managed to live off of Jeff's income for all of these years (we also had tenants for 5 years and I looked after a plethora of other children) the extra money from my job will go a long way!
When the kids are at school I spend time volunteering in a bunch of classrooms, working as a Strong Start coach, and taking a course about teaching Kindergarten. This all takes up way more time than I thought and I can't imagine what it will be like when/if I get a job! I don't know how other families cope when both parents are working, but I hope to find out soon enough!
Here are some photos from a walk we did at the beginning of October:
This is a tree we pass on the way to school. I like how just one part of it has started to change colour.
