I was looking back at blog posts from October last year and ran across this one. 
It made me laugh.
I'm pretty sure October is the busiest month of the year for our family.

Times two this year.
Plus Corey coaching.
3 birthdays.
Birthday parties.
Birthday presents.
Birthday treats.
A friend party for Sophie this year.
(We only do friend parties every other year.)
Halloween costumes.
Cattle sale in Tulsa.

It's just a busy month for us.
And then we do things like schedule a little trip to Branson. (a perfect Fall Break trip!)
And I do things like schedule pictures for the kids.
And I agree to help a friend with an Effective Discipline training workshop for a nearby school district.
I also signed up to sell things at a local consignment sale earlier this month. It didn't happen though.
I got swamped with too many other things and I just couldn't pull things together.

Still working on details for Sophie's friend party. (which is Saturday)
Still deciding on clothes for the kids pictures (in two weeks)
Still putting together finishing touches on Halloween costumes.
Still editing lots and lots of pictures from our Branson trip.
Still teaching and wife-ing and mommy-ing in the midst of all of it.

And looking forward to November. =)
