After that we came home quickly and let the dogs out. Ate lunch in the car and then got to Hill Ridge Farms for a pumpkin patch field trip for the homeschoolers. And one "little." Was the BEST day for it. Not too crowded and could not ask for any bluer a sky. Wonderful weather. Kids were awesome. Headed home & told I need to make a video by Sunday evening.(more to come on this at another time) Got home, dropped off a "little" and went to pick up Yana from cross country. Brought them home and then the girls decided to go to the homecoming football game. That's where they are now. Max is over at a friend's house for the evening. Bojan will be at a friend's tomorrow evening. While we cooked kids played w/ friends across the street & here. People across the street have a zip line. Cool stuff. Irina and Yana helped install that zip line years ago. Had pork chops on the grill, sweet potatoes and beans for dinner. Yum. Now, kids are watching a movie.
Tomorrow, brings very early morning soccer games for Alyona and Alex. Nik played already this week. After soccer, we may go to a Deaf Chat meet up group since we'll be near there. We'll see. Rest of the afternoon, we'll be cleaning the house up and making a video. The kids' youth group job of unloading pumpkins has been canceled b/c truck can't get to the pumpkins due to rain in fields. So, that's another day. Sunday morning we're working the new coffee/ hot cocoa shop in the church basement. Max & I are working it. Then church & home. I have massive homeschooling to get organized for the next few weeks. I want to change things a bit to better utilize our time. I have thank yous that must be written. I feel horrible I haven't gotten some of these out lately. Need to go through kids' clothes. There is much more than that going on but really, you get the idea. Hey, all kids are healthy & we're doing great so I can't complain. Just a day of sleep would be great. Or this:
