I feel like I should update my blog but I don't have a whole lot to say. We're settled down into our school year routine now and life is busy but not all that blog worthy. Nothing too special or exciting going on right now.
We're headed into fall though and I am excited about that. I love fall, it's my favorite time of the year. It was SO hot this summer that we really ended up spending far too much of it indoors. I can't enjoy being outside when it's 108 degrees. But it's finally cooling off and I'm looking forward to the leaves changing and the pumpkin patches and Halloween and all the fun fall things.
We looked at Shawn's vacation hours at work and discovered that he still has a decent amount of vacation time left that he has to use by the end of the year, so he's planning to take a few days off in October and hopefully we'll find something fun and fallish to do. He also has enough vacation left to take two full weeks off at Christmas. He always tries to save some vacation time for Christmas and I look forward to it all year. I love having a week or two where the whole family is home and it's one big celebration.
So we do have some fun things to look forward to, but right now there just isn't much happening. Shawn is working today and the kids are happily entertained so I've been doing some reading. I'm reading Gone Girl, which I've heard a lot about. Everyone seems to have a really strong reaction when that book is mentioned and I have to know why! Don't tell me, I'm still in the middle of it.
OH! Here's something! Josh officially finished the couch to 5K program yesterday. I'm incredibly proud of him, and impressed, because I've attempted it multiple times and have yet to complete it. He did a great job.
So that's pretty much it from our house. We're all happy and healthy and just chugging along with life! :)
