Happy October!

Good morning!  Happy October!  I can't believe it is October already!  This year has flown by.  I am not complaining.  I love October.  It is a super busy month for us with lots of birthdays including my mom's, Darbee's, my dad's and MINE!  It is an exciting month.  I am ready.

The weather is cooling down a tad bit here and I am so thankful!  I LOVE it.  We have already got our fall activities underway by visiting the pumpkin patch and the county fair.  We have so much more fun ahead.  Can you tell this is my favorite time of the year?  

We have already been busy. 

School is going GREAT.  I still absolutely LOVE it.
I cannot tell you how much I enjoy having her at home and being able to teach her.  It is such a joy each day and I am so thankful for this opportunity.

They had college day and she was so excited not to wear a uniform.

She loves going two days a week and I am so glad.
It makes things MUCH easier that she loves it so much.

The county fair came and Darbee wanted to enter some of her artwork as an exhibit again this year.
She chose five things to enter. She won 4 blue ribbons and 1 red.  She was happy.

She is already making plans for what she wants to enter next year.

We went back to the fair another night for rides.  I have a little dare devil.  She wanted to ride everything!  She had a blast.

She even had fun playing several of the games this year.
Thanks Papa for the stuffed animal! :)

She met a clown too!

THen it was time for our local high school's homecoming game.
Darbee LOVES going to football games and really loves the homecoming game.
They have a parade the day before.
She got a little bored while waiting for it to start. 

But...she was so excited when it finally got to us.  She got a ton of candy and saw all of the football players and cheerleaders.

There was a pep rally afterward on the court square and of course we had to go to that.
She absolutely adores the cheerleaders and looked on in awe as the homecoming court was introduced.

Friday night was the homecoming game.  She asked me to make her a Cougars shirt and how could I say no?
She couldn't wait to get to the game and see all of the girls in their pretty dresses.

It was a fun time.  

So...can you tell we are enjoying fall already?  Whew!  I can't wait to share all of the fun times ahead with you.  We have a fun weekend planned and a big birthday surprise for Darbee the next weekend.  I am so excited.  

I hope you are enjoying your fall season so far.  

Until next time....
