Fall? What is that?

The calendar may say it's Fall, but it sure doesn't feel like it here!  85 and sunny most days!  The humidity is less so that does make it feel a little less like Summer but here in Florida, we have three seasons: warm, hot and hotter! 

We are still here...still plugging along.  Almost done with the first marking period of school.  The girls are doing ok for the most part.  Sami is struggling the most; 5th grade is very hard and she isn't the best with time management:(  Summer is enjoying 1st grade but has to do things "her way" which isn't always the best way to do things but we are working on it.  Grace is enjoying preschool very much and has a new friend already:)

I will probably jinx us by mentioning Joey but i'll risk it.  He has some good days and some bad days.  They are about the same in frequency.  He can now go up and down steps w/o help; roll over from back to tummy and stand up in his bed on his own; is eating us out of house and home some days.  LOVES to say the word no; likes to hit; throw things at people -->all learned from his sisters:(

Still not a fan of sleeping and some days will only take a 30 minute nap all day (those days are NOT fun)

I had to go back to working 5 days a week; for various reasons- busy holiday season coming up; very stressful trying to get to work on time when I have to leave as soon as Joe gets home; and missing out on things for the girls at school because I have to work and its difficult to take time off when I am the only one who does what I do!  I have been on my new schedule for a week so we'll see how it goes.  Once the holidays are over things may go back to the old way.  I wish I could find someone to watch the kids one afternoon a week until Joe got home (and wouldn't cost an arm and a leg) so I could work three 8hr days a week vs spreading 24 hrs out over 5 days like now.  Maybe someday...

EB awareness week starts on Thursday!!  I have BIG blog plans this week....we'll see if they actually happen...lol

Oh and Halloween is coming up soon- i am trying to sew Sami her costume (I am NOT a sewing type person so this should be interesting!)

Sorry no pictures and there won't be for awhile.  The CPU (central processing unit) on my desktop was damaged and we can't afford a new one right now:/  and there is no way to pull pics of the SD card onto my little bitty lap top.  So while I can still take pictures I can''t upload them.  

Good night y'all:)
