Nature Center Field Trip

On Thursday I went with Damaris on their 5th grade science trip to a local nature reserve. It was actually really cool and I was so glad I was able to go along! They had different "classes" like a nature hike, a hand-on pond experience, and more!

I am so sad to say that we found Oreo dead on the road this morning. I am crushed...and I miss her already. She had so much personality and was so loving. I knew something was wrong when she wasn't at the door first thing this morning.

These are probably my two favorite pictures of Oreo...she always put a smile on my face!

The kids had a cross country/run club meet today and I snapped a few pictures! I never ran cross country, but Stephen did, so he is totally in his element :) The kids seem to be enjoying it, which is fun!

Homecoming and More

This past Friday was homecoming and all the sports participate.  Here are some pictures!

Cross Country Team


This one wasn't from homecoming, but I thought it was still cute ;)

And one more...because the bunny is just too cute! Stephen built him this shelf, and he loves it :)

Hilltop Designs Consultant Meeting

Today I had the AMAZING opportunity of going to our Hilltop Designs Consultant meeting. I haven't said much about Hilltop Designs, but I started selling their products back in April. I am OBSESSED!!!  Christine, the owner hand makes and hand packages every item, and they are almost all 100% from scratch and natural...and so reasonably priced!!! It was amazing to meet some of these people in person, plus I was able to bring a couple friends with me and we had a bunch of hands-on learning as well as a tour of their shop.  It was such a great day!

Build your own bath salt station with my friends Amanda and Samantha

Trying out concoctions of fragrance oils and learning about what scents go together

It takes 10-14 BUSINESS days for an order to it is HARD to wait that long...people complain about this, and so she had all of us see WHY it takes so having us wrap bars of soap.  No joke takes more complaining from the consultants LOL

Sports and Misc

This fall is BUSY. Damaris is in both cheer leading and run club, and Titus is in Cross Country. It has been crazy, but good and the kids seem to really enjoy it!

Oreo cracks me up...she fell asleep like this - it looks like she was naughty and I made her put her nose in the corner :)

And then there's Pepper...haha!

We looked out the window and saw this huge patch of orange and finally figured out what it was...some of the goldfish we put in there from our tank have multiplied in our pond...a LOT.  I can't believe how many there are now - this is just a small section of them!!!
