Autumn Insanity

This time of year always seems busier than usual – back-to-school and all the extra activities. This year, it seems that we’ve been MUCH busier than normal around Our House.

Since starting back to school last month, we’ve also been busy with our home school co-op (M and I are teaching an oil pastel class), dog school, art lessons, 4-H, music class (and lots of practice at home), and church activities and events. We are also busy working on getting lots of stuff done in the yard and garden before the snow flies. Judging by the weather outside my window today, we might not have much time left…

We’ve also been busy learning to can.

We’re getting ready for Halloween.

The pumpkins are ready to be carved…
And the costumes are selected.

But there is still a LOT to be done!
There are leaves to rake.

The girls and I are heading up north for our annual weekend away next week, a soap making day is in the planning, Christmas gifts that need to be started, and so much more. Hopefully things will start to settle down before long.

What’s on your agenda for this autumn?
