10.

  1. Rainy, windy and cool here. And the leaves, they are a turnin'. It's most definitely fall out there.
  2. Three more cross country events before the end of the season. Guess that means we get to stand out in the rain, wind and cold... The coach of the high school team was at Kyler's last meet - and approached him about running with them next year. Kyler was pretty pleased to have caught his eye...
  3. Reached my Lifetime membership at Weight Watchers last week. Which means as long as I stay within 2 pounds of my goal weight, I never have to pay again. This is why I joined - so I have built in accountability to stay at this weight...
  4. Speaking of weight, I figured out my starting and ending BMI the other day. I went from 25 (the bottom of the unhealthy standard) to 21.9, which is smack dab in the middle of the healthy weight range. Proud of me.
  5. Ethan got his retainer yesterday... his mouth is a little sore this morning, but the biggest challenge is getting him to just leave it alone. He keeps taking it out and putting it in... driving me crazy. I tried to help him realize his teacher isn't going to appreciate it if he's playing with it all day. We'll see how it goes today. He's got a little lisp as he figures out how to talk with it... already this morning I see huge improvements in his speech from last night.
  6. Asia's on the road again this week. Week three in a row. Tired of that.
  7. Reading Finding Our Way Again: The Return of the Ancient Practices by Brian McClaren right now. Good stuff. This is the first in a series of books about the ancient practices of Christianity... hoping to read them all. Looks like this one will be be next...
  8. We had a nice quiet visit with my parents here over the weekend... didn't do anything spectacular, but we enjoyed having them here, just joining in with our crazy daily lives... I sure love them. Love watching the kids with them... sweet.
  9. We made caramel apples Sunday. Wow, they're good. My favorite? Dipped in caramel, then rolled in chopped walnuts and mini chocolate chips. Oh my grief - SO delicious. I was a bad photographer and didn't take any pictures at all... but I promise, they were really pretty too (before we bit into them at least...)
  10. Happy Tuesday, friends! Enjoy the colors outside your window today...
