Many times this week I wanted to stop by and share a few things, but it was not meant to be. Instead I'll share a few pics from this week's instagram as my family sits beside me in the den and we watch an episode of Monk on Netflix. Have you seen that show? Goodness he's a heartbreaker, that Mr. Monk.
I'm truly lost in October over here and am so happy we aren't even half way through. Sometimes these perfect moments race by too quickly, you know? I love autumn so much I have to be careful not to squeeze it out of being. Poof, gone.
Not this October. This year I feel especially rooted, each day lingering as I hoped it would.
It's funny because our October calendar is bursting! Yet somehow, we've been careful to fill it only with outings that are meaningful to us. Last weekend I took Emily and a couple of friends to see Regina Spektor and we had a fantastic time. She's one of those artists that is a must see live to fully appreciate the depth and character of her voice - such a treat. I also loved the quick and simple drive up to campus for the show, avoiding city traffic.
Scout continues to grow and grow. I should take a little video of him to post here - his repertoire of tricks is hysterical. He high fives! And not just to the person that trained him to do so (Emily), to any ol' person that asks. Oh, that cracks me up... a high-fiving dog.
We continue to settle in at Emily's new homeschool co-op. She's loving the community and so am I. Next week I'll begin knitting class! It's mainly for the kids but a few moms are sitting in too... sounds perfect.
Just a little sharing to close out the week.
Everything is moving along nice and slow over here, I do hope the same for you as well.
