My little corner of the world

What's been going on, you ask? Well... on the one hand, it feels like a whole lotta nuthin! On the other hand, I've been incredibly busy with daily life. You know the drill, the kind of busy where everyone gets fed, clothed, cleaned, and tutored each day and you fall into bed at night - only to get up and do it all over again. The weeks fly by, and poof! It's Thanksgiving before you know it!

That's ok, though. We've laughed, loved, learned, and served. K (2) continues to keep us in stitches with the funny things she says and does. The latest is her announcement that "I go bafroom you" each time I say I have to go to the bath*room. She runs in, lifts the lid, and stands ready to assist me in any way. Future attendant at a 5-star hotel? The Big 3 have enjoyed their enrichment classes, culminating in a medieval feast for M (9) and some pretty amazing President projects for S (14) and C (12). A's (4) obsession with the human body has been replaced with Spider-Man. Oh, well. Guess medical school will have to wait.

Now I'm turning my attention to Thanksgiving fun. We're reading our favorite Thanksgiving books (see the sidebar on the left), and planning our movable feast. We're heading back to the north GA mountains again this year and there is much to do ahead of time. But I'm looking forward to a fun holiday and some sweet "unplugged" family times.

Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
