With me, there is just this feeling I get in my gut at the turning from Summer to Autumn. And it's a good one! I love the chill in the air, keeping the windows open, making the heart meals. I just love autumn!
And at night, right before bed, hot cocoa is begged for (and almost always obliged ~ if we have enough for all 3) and snuggles are fought for. Nope, I don't beg them to snuggle with me, they fight over who gets to snuggle with me first. And that does this mama's heart SO good! I love it when my guys just snuggle and love on me! I have been so blessed in my life. Beyond measure.
Now mind you they can be precocious little boogers. Like tonight ~ Xavier climbed a tree in our complex (we rent, and the management can be .............anal) and just started tearing down branches. SERIOUSLY?!?!?!? So, I expect to be getting a very "sweetly worded" letter tomorrow. Oy vey!
School is going really well. Today, we started late (what's new, I'm SO not a morning person) and we were done by 1:15 ~ before Jesse got up. WOOHOO!
The guys do their seatwork ~ math, english, phonics/spelling ~ all independently, well, for the most part independently. Then we do Bible, history and science together. I really am kinda liking it! I love history ~ and so I'm relearning alot of what I had previously forgotten ~ and they like it too. But what they like the best, I think is science. We are learning about bugs and plants and animals! I'm just having a good time just sitting at the table and talking/teaching with my guys!
And that is just what's going on right now! Oh, yeah, and btw ~ I did cut my fb vaca short! :D
