It’s been a hectic week since I was last here! The trip to St. Louis was quick, but wonderful, and the drive was spectacular. Although the colors were past peak, the yellows were especially rich and golden, and it was glorious to pass through such beautiful scenery. We packed a lot into the visit, including carving pumpkins, a swim in the morning, a trip to Whole Foods, and more! The girls were delightful, though Katie had a few “terrible two” moments that seemed to pass as quickly as they came. But she looks adorable in her dress, which is now hemmed and finished, and we are all looking forward to her part in “the parade” on Saturday.
There have been lots of errands, the day at the church that included the last of our five-part class, work on table assignments, picking up my dress, and so on. The next few days are equally busy as we take care of those final preparations for the weekend, including cleaning the house in time for Mom’s arrival on Wednesday. I’ll try to snag an idle moment here or there to report in on the blog, but won’t promise! Some days there is so much to say that there is nothing to say, ya know?
Blessings on your day!
