The picture is kind of blurry, Zac has Jason's hunting boggin' on because he was sick. The weather in Alabama changes so fast it's hard to keepp up with it. We were at a birthday party two hours before this in t-shirts and flipflops and the temperature dropped that fast!

My Aunt Betty Hollis had a small fall festival at her house Saturday night. There was face painting, go fish, the cupcake game(eat a whole cupcake with no hands, cake walk, bobbing for apples, hayride, basketball and then a big bonfire with some good old gospel singing. We all had a blast! Here are a few pcitures of the kids having some fun!

Thanks so much to you girls who responded to my cries of help. It makes me feel better just knowing that others face these issues too! I tend to agree with you all, I don't need anything else added to my day and neither do the kids. We are going to try cub scouts for Trevor, but his Daddy is going to be taking him to his meetings. He begged and pleaded to join, so we gave in. I think it will be good for him, for he is in the whining stage. I think all first graders go through this. My daughter, second grade going on college, is going through a know-it-all phase. I didn't think they did this until teenage years. We are in the process of nipping that in the bud! I'm trying not to fall asleep while waiting for my husbands work uniforms to wash so I can put them into the dryer. Ugh! I would've already had it done, but I was up all night last night with Zachary because he was running a fever and couldn't sleep. He was much better this evening.

There just doesn't seem to be enough time in day to do all that seems necessary. I do a few errands a week for folks that can't get out, I help out by cleaning a few houses, when I really should be cleaning my own! And I just accepted a position at the school for after school care. And then I think, its all I can do to get the kids baths and homework in the evenings along with cooking dinner, doing dishes and laundry. Then I feel the pressure to put my kids into cheerleading, basketball, football or whatever.... Are we really missing out on the good things in life by not planning and adding to our daily schedules, or are we missing out by not doing more? What's your opinion? If I didn't have so much to do right now, I might sit down and figure it out for myself!
