Back on the Blogging Train

I shall make no excuses for not blogging for two months. Not one. Instead, let’s just enjoy this look back:

At the beginning of November, we headed to Atlanta so Brian could do some painting for my parents. We’ll just refer to this as fall break. Have I mentioned that I love homeschooling. Brian keeps asking me if we are on track with school… you know, to get all the days we need… don’t worry… I’ve got that under control!



Thrilled that mommy is taking yet another picture of her. But really… the whole time I was trying to get her to smile, there was a little boy (maybe 4) who kept sticking his head in the picture to inform me that she would not play with him. I may or may not have said I don’t blame her.


This one will smile for me.


This one too.



They make a great team


We went on a walking trail that I never knew existed in Sandy Springs. I grew up in Atlanta… lived ten minutes from this thing… never knew it was there. Ha! The kids enjoyed running with cousins!

IMAG1820My sis in law and I were walking behind the running pack of wild children when some guy made one of those unnecessary comments that I can’t stand. He said “please tell me that you’re not related to all of those children.” Why? I mean… why say that?!?! Heck yes we’re related to them… and I had one more napping at home… take that!

IMAG1828I even got to go on a date to the Cheesecake factory with this guy!

Successful fall break.. you betcha!


Adventures in Fall

Have I mentioned lately how much I LOVE living in the mountains and how fall is my FAVORITE season? Well… I do and it is. The girls and I have been sick for like a month… it’s torture… seriously. I’m so ready for everyone to feel better! Despite runny noses, coughs and sore throats, we have been able to get out and enjoy the amazing fall colors.

Last week, we went to Montreat and hike STRAIGHT up to see some amazing views. This week, my parents came up to enjoy some leaves. We headed to Pisgah to show them Looking Glass falls and then drove on up to the Blue Ridge Parkway to enjoy the view of Cold Mountain. It was so worth all the driving to see the beautiful views.
