Maybe not a 20% weekend, but close

Actually I don't think I would know what to do if someone told me I had to only do 20% of what I normally try to knock out over the 48 hours called Saturday and Sunday, but this weekend might come close.

Friday night we took the kids to my school's homecoming football game.  The kids did great, we sat with fellow teachers families and I had the chance to see several old students home from college.

After being at this school since we opened our doors 6 years ago it's unbelievably satisfying to see all that has been built from the ground up.

Saturday it was insanely warm, sunny and beautiful. We took advantage of time to walk the dog, work outside on Halloween decorations, plant fall flowers and do some much needed yardwork.

I sat on the porch swing and finished a book while Bill took the kids to the library and for Halloween costumes.  Both nights I went to bed early and tried to knock out the last of the cold.  I also managed to get some much needed exercise in both days.

Sunday was the opposite of warm, as it was cold and rainy.  Bill stayed at home with the kids in pjs until noon while I went to church and hit the grocery. 

Bill and Ben went to their first Y Guides meeting and both returned excited about upcoming events including camping, Krispy Kreame behind the scenes tour and a camp jamboree in November.

Ian and I stayed behind while I finished up some cooking, housework, and work for school. Once home the boys carved our first pumpkin of the season and continued working on the outside decorations (we are STILL not finished, make that Bill is still not finished.)

Maybe not the most exciting weekend, but I'm ready to start a busy week without being sick.
