I think we are enjoying one of the nicest and prettiest autumns that I can remember since moving to North Dakota. It could just be my season of life, or the fact that the twins are old enough to be out and about and crunching in the leaves and running and climbing at the pumpkin patch. Maybe it is that my life is a little less hectic since enrolling the little boys in the school in our neighborhood, which is within walking distance, freeing me up from daily drop offs and pick ups. Maybe I know for a fact that winter will arrive, and it will be cold and we will have snow. . .so I should just enjoy mild weather and the chance to absorb vitamin d while I can!
My oldest has a job. And a driver’s permit. I’m old.
My middle schooler is enjoying some long awaited school success. I can see the change in him daily and it warms my heart. Confidence is a powerful thing. Turning in homework certainly helps as well.
I have a good friend involved in opening a brand new FM radio station. Her excitement is contagious and it brings me back to my days in college radio. I also got to give her a Twitter tutorial, which was fun. Social media is always growing and changing, which keeps me on my toes, albeit a few steps behind most of the time.
Yesterday I finished up my tasks on the HP Printer Ink Challenge. The results were more surprising than I expected. I’m working on a write up of my experiences, along with a remake of my color block puzzle. . .keep watching.
Don’t forget that I have two giveaways going on right now! One is for a combination smoke/carbon Monoxide Detector from First Alert. The other is for a family four pack of tickets to see Disney Live! Three Classic Fairy Tales at Bismarck Civic Center, November 5. Both are easy Rafflecopter entries. . .so pop on over and enter!
I also have been doing Tot School with the twins. We’ve had a lot of fun with our Pumpkin Unit, so be sure and check back for details. I also want to Revive my “My Life With Twins” feature. What twin topics would you like to see me cover?
I also have some great iPad apps on deck to review as well. Plus, with Christmas coming up you won’t want to miss some great gift ideas!
Chime in! How is your autumn shaping up? Have you been involved in any special projects? Are your kids enjoying school? What are your greatest challenges? Do you have any topics that you would like to see covered here? You know I’d love to hear from you!
