Happy Labor Day!



Fall is just around the corner, and I'm so excited! It's my favorite season of the year. As soon as September rolls around I pull out my autumn decorations. Hopefully the weather will take note of the fact that the season is about to change. This past week we had over 5 inches of much needed rain. The shriveled up plants in the garden have been teased back to life. Yesterday we had a high temperature of 81 degrees. It was such a nice change from the low 100's we've been experiencing the last few weeks. Hopefully we're through with the scorching temperatures.

This morning I filled out and mailed our monthly homeschool attendence report, which is a requirement in our state. We've already completed four weeks of school.:) Even with taking last week off, I still feel ahead of the game. So far I'm very pleased with our decision to have year-around school. All of the children have been working so diligently on their lessons. The school portion of our day just seems to fly by.

This week I need to get caught up on some of my homekeeping tasks. In addition to my daily routine, here's my to-do list.

* Tackle a mile-high pile of ironing.
* Organize the little girls' room. It looks like a bomb went off in there.
* Print out new cards for the kids' ChorePacks.
* Put all of the suitcases in the attic.
* Host our monthly ladies' missionary fellowship at church.
* Write out birthday/anniversary cards for the month of September.
* Plan for Mr. C's upcoming birthday.
* Take a load of "stuff" to the local thrift store.
* Get my box of fall decorations from the attic and put the summer decorations away.
* Display my fall goodies. There's no way I'm waiting until September 23 to decorate for fall. :)

Looks like a busy week! I'm also gearing up for a new year of Patch the Pirate Club at our church. I received my box full of supplies over the weekend, and I'm looking forward to our children's program starting back up. I'll sure miss listening to Mr. C's Bible teaching on Wednesday nights. I'm planning on listening to a CD of the service while I do my weekly ironing. Multi-tasking is a good thing.

Since we just had a mini-vacation, we're still having school today in spite of the holiday. Perhaps we'll plan a picnic lunch in the garden if it's not too hot. I hope you all enjoy your day and have a wonderful, productive week!

Love this new look! Happy Labor Day to you too! I also have started taking out my autumn decorations. Autumn is my favorite season. My youngest girl thinks I should wait until the official start but I like to start displaying my things early on so we can enjoy them before getting out the xmas decorations! Enjoy the start of fall....

Autumn is already in the air here. Can you believe it??? Leaves are turning and beginning to fall.
As far as decorations... I wait until the middle of September, usually.
Have a FUN day full of learning and a great week.

Hi Mrs. C,

We are starting school tomorrow! Yay!! I'm glad to hear yours is going so well, and it sounds like you have everything running smoothly at your house.
Blessings to you and yours, and prayers for a great new school year,
Karen

You sure have a busy week to keep you going. And I love your new header. I am must as anxious for fall as you are, and thinking there is no way that I will wait for the end of the month to decorate, even though we are STILL in the 90s here.

I did ironing today too matter of fact. We're suppose to get rain tonight. Our homeschool starts tomorrow and Im all befuddled and not ready!

Our day was spent with our family and friends. We cooked out steak, hot dogs and hamburgers. I made macaroni salad, baked beans, watergate salad and had chips and pop. We had a great day of fun and fellowship. Sounds like things are busy as usual your way....glad to hear school is going well and that you are ahead of schedule. I pray it stays that way.

I love, absolutely love the Fall Time too! The cooler days, the Harvest theme, Thanksgiving, changing colors of the trees, and so much more!
Please share and show off your decorations some time. :)
