A little bit of this....

Yesterday was just one of those days. We accomplished some, but not really much of anything.  Quay finally got his sled trailer out of the front yard, only to bring the car trailer home and park it in it's place.  We got 3/4 of the pumpkins loaded in the yard cart, now to figure out what to do with them. I am thinking of taking what I want and making a for sale sign for the rest out by the highway. We have way too many.  It was a mascara only type day-and I am loving Mary Kay's new Love Lash Mascara. It really makes your lashes longer and fuller.

We had our first parent-teacher conferences with Mrs. Kaylor yesterday afternoon. She had nothing but good to say about our boy.  {insert pride here}  He is average to above-average in all his subjects. She has him in the advanced reading class, which surprises me-but I knew I had a smart kid.  There are just a few things he needs to work on-a few letters and the number 9.  She said he was the only kid in the class to know what the letter 'Q' was (thanks to his dad's name--Quay).  He has been the only child in the classroom not to lose his green discipline card all school year!! Wow! She commented on how organized he is, how much of a perfectionist he is, and how large his vocabulary is.  I am just so proud of him. And to think--he didn't even go to pre-school. Hahaha!!

Last night after Quay went to work, Ryder and I were outside. The wind had died down and it was just absolutely lovely out.  Ryder was playing in the leaves, so I decided to snap a few pictures.  He just LOVES leaves.  Oh and the dogs had to wrestle with him too. (No--Roo isn't biting him even though it does look like it)

A favorite fall snack-dry roasted peanuts and candy corn--Mmmm mmmm good!! Tastes like a salted nut roll.

  1. Love your photos of Ryder and the leaves, looks like he really enjoyed the evening. Wonderful he is doing so well at school, I'm sure much of this is due to your input.
