We are back into 4-H again after a break for several years. Rachel, Jonathan and Jordan all participated in 4-H when they were young. Rachel and Jonathan showed dairy heifers and all three shot on the shooting team.
What young man wouldn't want a motorcycle? When I was growing up we went to the desert on the weekends and rode motorcycles, quads, 3-wheelers (now that dates me), and dune buggies. I loved every minute of it! It was a time that our family was all together, camping, sitting around the fire pit at night, playing games in the motorhomes, enjoying meals together.
I love the fall season; cooler weather, less bugs outside and Thanksgiving is coming! I love Thanksgiving! We are working on finishing a few projects around the house in the next few weeks and I want to start getting my fall decorations up.
We love visiting family in Oklahoma! My aunt and uncle live on a beautiful piece of land with plenty of place for the children to roam. This year the children slept in cabins on the property, while the little ones slept with me in my grandparents home.
Over the years I have survived on very little sleep. Most of my children either sleep with us or in our room for the first year. It is a choice that Andrew and I made when we began having children. Around the time they turn one we usually move them into a bedroom with siblings.
