Ah, October

This morning was the first real frost of the year.  Crunchy white leaves and grass.  The pumpkins got carved last night for pre-fhe.  We're getting ready for trunk or treat and the chili cook off on Wednesday.  Thanks to Enoch, I have the awards ready for the winners.  We should see how far and wide his design has spread.  You might be surprised to hear that the girls are going as...Fairies!  Again! For how many years in a row?!

School.  Miriam is at home going to on-line school.  The learning curve for me has been a little steep, but I think I kind of have the hang of it.  It's not ideal, but it is what it is.  Gwyn is in second grade.  I have a whole new appreciation for the simplicity of seven.  Jesse is so close to being done with this trimester he can almost taste it.

This last year I spent a lot of time with the youth at church.  Sunday school teacher and girls camp director.  F-U-N!  I was a super awkward 15 year old, but I sure love hanging out with them now.   I was pretty sad to be released from those calling last week.  I'm in primary now, a little lost, but the kids are happy to tell me where I'm messing up.  Miriam was pretty appalled that I forgot to have the kids give the theme and scripture.  Who could forget that?  Obviously, Me.

The countdown has begun for December break.  The kids are motivated to work hard so that they can play hard with their cousins.  A whole month of Palmer fun in the Aloha state, I'm jealous of me.  How did I get so lucky?
