|First we went to a horse barn to learn about all things equestrian.|
|Their favorite part was brushing this gentle soul. He let those girls tug and brush and do all kinds of damage and he never so much as sighed.|
|On another trip we went to Olentangy Indian Caverns, an ancient underground maze of caverns used by Wyandotte Indians for refuge and ceremonies.|
We've also been getting ready for Halloween. The kids have had their costumes picked out for weeks and weeks - and have been playing in them for hours on end (super hero theme this year - and the costumes have already been worth the cost even if they didn't wear them for Halloween). Katy and David both have parades and parties at school on Wednesday (where Luke and I will attend both), and then trick or treat that night. We're watching Sandy and all the havoc she is wreaking on the east coast. Praying for family and friends in her path, and hoping that she slows down as she heads inland. There are already thousands of people in our county without power, and it hasn't even started yet.

|Intently watching Daddy carve the pattern.|
|Luke jumped in on Katy's ghost|
|Brian's carving skills are getting better every year! |
|I volunteered to make goodie bags for Katy's class party - which was actually really fun. The kids helped me sort everything.|
So someone asked if I was going to do daily blogging in November. My blogging has really slowed down lately, for various reasons, and I'm not sure if anyone cares about daily blogging here. But one thing I miss is keeping record of how the kids are - the things they say and do that are so easily forgotten. I can't believe how I will read a blog post, even from a few months ago, and I have already completely forgotten the tidbit. So maybe I will try to get down some really short little snapshots of what the kids are like right now. Even if only a few people are reading...that much is important to me for later.
