Unbelievable how...

...this month has flown by! But then again, October is usually my busiest month, and this year has been no exception. Last week my parents were visiting with us--a very special treat! Here's my dad helping my oldest with math homework one morning...

A couple of weeks ago, I looked out the window and saw my youngest skiing down a "hill" on one of our "sleds." I couldn't pass up the picture! The land around here is pretty flat, so the kids make use of any incline they can, especially the slope going up to the fence row behind the barn.

They also use anything as a sled since we don't get enough snow to warrant buying real sleds. The favorite is an old aluminum baking tray that they curled the front edge so it glides better. This one works great on ice, and surprisingly well on this fall's brown grass.

I've had a couple of projects in the works recently that have kept me hopping. One of them is a formatting a book for Diane Reed Loew, 101 Ways to Celebrate the Ordinary, which will be available shortly.

The other project is a new group blog I'm a part of: The Barn Door. I was able to set this new site up and I'm really excited about it. We'll be opening the doors real soon!

This month, as part of my 40 days of celebrating and preparing, I've been seeking God for direction next year, and He's answering and confirming things as only He can. I'm really looking forward to seeing how things play out--and I'll be sharing more about this in the next 10-12 days.


  1. What great pictures! Your little guy looks like he's having a BLAST.
