It all started when my husband's outdoor cat mysteriously passed away Friday evening. He was positively inconsolable over it... a real shocker considering he is not a man of much emotion. I felt helpless, he had never lost a living thing close to him before. When his mom lost her favorite cat, he bought her a new one... so I decided to go in search of the same!
Dusty has been a bit of a distraction in school.
This week was also made busy by fall decor time. The cozy colors and scents and tastes of autumn are among my favorites and I look forward to the decor switch up each year. My step-dad got a new phone and was texting me panoramic pictures of his house so I was inspired to do the same...
joining the public/private school ranks... but she has gloated about some of the additional perks of being homeschooled she is noticing since we made our pros and cons list a few weeks ago!
Hopefully this weekend can launch a better next week! I have some tests and study pages to write up, a Make-it Break to attend with Brooke at Michael's, and some re-assessing of our chore system because this last week has set neon lights around the need to do so! By the way, Monday kicks off a blog series here on Quick, Low Mess, Homemade Meals with Easy Clean-up! Be sure to check back in for that!
On that note, I have grocery shopping, kids to chaperone and pizza to devour! Have a marvelous weekend... I hope you get a chance to check out the Autumn in your area!
By the way.....
