What? It's November?

  • The first quarter of school is done.
  • Football season is over for Grant.
  • One week of soccer left for Kent and Kurt.
  • Thanksgiving is less than 2 weeks away.
  • The boys already have their Christmas lists done.

I'm having a hard time keeping up with life, let alone this blog. I'd let it go, but I'm hoping I still have some family reading it from time to time. That is, if I would update it. Plus I've worked so hard putting all the bells and whistles on it! :)

Let's see, what's new? Well, I'm officially retired from scrapbooking. At least professionally. And I'm taking a break personally and doing other fun artsy type stuff. Hopefully one day I'll get back to it and continue documenting my family's history - I do still think that it is so important and that scrapbooking is a worthwhile hobby.

As I've said in prior posts, I'm heavy into running an Etsy shop with my sister, Tricia. Our joint venture is all about recycling found objects that would have ended up in a landfill, into art pieces you can put in your home. Doesn't that sound like another worthwhile adventure? At least it is something fun and new and keeps me in touch with my beloved sister, since we live so far apart.

In other news...Grant just got his driver's learning permit. So, yes, football is done, but now we have another activity to pursue - taking him DRIVING!! :) I'm actually enjoying it as it's a rare chance for some one-on-one time with him. It will only last a short 5 months and then he will get his regular license and he'll be independent. Wah.

Wyatt is currently playing flag football. It's one of my favorite sports to watch - just a really fun time for the players and fans.

Kent and Kurt are winding down their fall soccer season. We aren't doing winter soccer this year so we'll be waiting for baseball to start in the spring.

My mom is coming to visit in December. I love having family here while my Christmas decorations are all up!

That's about it for an update. I hope someone is still reading this thing...
