Boiling down maple sap into syrup

   Well I can not believe it has been 10 months since I last posted; but life gets busy and before you know it, winter, spring and summer has gone and we are in a crisp fresh, fall.  In winter we had a baby and tapped our maple tree and made maple syrup.  In the spring, my sister and her family moved from Utah, back to Pennsylvania and is living in the same town as me (dream come true.) The summer was a the girls dance recital, trip to Lancaster and vacation to Myrtle Beach with Cooper Family (where we all got the flu, but still had a blast) and now we are entering the fall where school and activities began. I am soo happy October has arrived.  If you know me at all, then you know it is my VERY FAVORITE month!  It is so beautiful outside.

Girls dance recital

      Last time I checked in here I was about 8 weeks from having a baby.  Hayzel was born in February.  She will be 8 months old soon!  She is by far my easiest baby, all smiles, social and cool as a cucumber.  I'm grateful for this calm and quiet little girl.  Of course she can be loud and scream as well, just not as often as she is docile.  She began smiling at 2 weeks, no lie.

     Elly got her ears pierced for her 7th birthday, Brinley will be 4 this month! My girls are growing up!  We are busy with homeschooling, co op, girl scouts and story hour.  Life is soo good. 

     At church Danny is the Scout Master he is as busy as ever and loving it.  I am in nursery which has been a lovely break, I never thought I would love nursery, but I do!

    Things new:

*We have  Hayzel who is such a joy to our family

*I have started a book club for elly and her friend once a month.  We are just reading picture books but afterwards we discuss characters, setting.  I hope to introduce plot, theme, and such.  We have only done this once last month but WAY excited about this.

 *We are reading outloud A LOT as a family.  We always have, but to the umpteenth power, now. 

 *I feel more organized and with it than a year ago...yet my house it messier..hmmm.

* In a walking club- just started this with friend who started this
