October was a very busy month!! We finished up combining the 1st week of October, but things didn't slow down after that. We had something every weekend and a few things during the week, besides our usual busyness.
S & I enjoyed going to one of my niece's volleyball games! A can play hard! We're hoping to get to one of her basketball games soon!
We participated in a memorial walk for our little Adley at the hospital. It was difficult, but well worth it! I just never realized how many people are affected by the loss of a little one, either before birth or shortly after. There were a couple of hundred people there. I am definitely more aware now and keep them in my prayers.
We also had a surprise "Blessing" shower for my friend M, since her wedding was fast approaching. A blessing shower is simply one that focuses on blessings and encouragement rather than physical gifts. It was a wonderful afternoon of healing and closure and moving on to the next phase.
At the end of the month, we had a homeschooling event at our place put on by the NRA. It was amazing. They have this educational program that allows the kids to learn about safe hunting, shooting, animal identification and such. The cost is completely covered by the NRA.
