The cooler weather and rain has arrived. The leaves are slowly changing to accept the new season to come.
Bo is gone again but should be home soon. I know I dealt with a deployment but for some reason even if this absence is not that long it feels like forever before I finally pick him up from the airport. As usual when he leaves my to do list grows and my calendar filled. But I try to take things day by day and prioritize what is important.
Snippets of happenings around here....
Immersing myself in Jane's online workshop. I have started my projects but haven't had the time to upload them yet and will hopefully soon.

Happy Fall....October is just around the corner.

September came a bit quick and around here you wouldn't think it was with how the heat index went back up again. Nick's cross country meet had to be canceled due to it. :( I am just looking forward to much more cooler weather in the fall.
So...September comes with so much. I start my college classes, Bo's Birthday is tomorrow the 2nd, My Brother's is on the 3rd. Our anniversary of 18yrs happens on September 11th but for our second anniversary this year Bo will not be here(Our actual one is on May 18th then our church one Sept 11th) yes the Army is once again sending him away from us. Thankfully this time its only for a course and its in Texas but still any time away from us always throws us for a loop. Just hope after what I just endured with him gone to Afghanistan this will be a piece of cake. Then all the Senior happenings in school, off season for wrestling and a full season into cross country. So can you say a lot on my plate? But you know I wouldn't have it any other way. This is life being a part of all my kids events and just being a part of the everyday stuff. Of course at times its not as easy as it sounds..life is never easy and we are always hit with challenges and uphill battles that seem to test our characters but as always I trudge through knowing the next day is a new one. :)
In the midst of all that I still have my online art classes and take time to tinker with my jewelry. I wish I had more than 24 hours to a day...I would get so much more done. LOL!
Before I welcome in September this is what my August encompassed. :)
