November update

I can't believe I don't have any posts for November and it's already the 23rd. My excuse is that I'm tired. I barely have enough energy for the everyday things and some of those things go by the wayside sometimes, too.

We had a party for Abigail on her birthday: the 31st of October. It was a dress-up, Halloween themed party (no surprise)- though nothing scary.

Our weekends have been a little busy this month. We've had a campout the last 3 weekends, though last week, it was just the guys who went. First up was our church's first family campout which we had at Wolf Creek campground. It was organized by my dh (dear hubby). The big activity was fishing and I think all the kids who went fishing caught at least one. It was catch and release. They were mostly perch, but at least one bass was caught and one catfish. One of our experienced fishermen showed the catfish to all the kids and explained how to carefully remove one from the hook.

Last weekend was Webelos Woods where area Scout troops set up activities for all the Webelos dens in the area and advertised themselves so the Webelos can decide what troop they want to join when they leave Cub scouts. Alex was with his troop and as senior patrol leader he spent quite a bit of time making sure his patrols were ready for the Webelos scouts.

This past weekend was the Cub scout family campout at Cubworld at Camp Strake. We were able to take the camper, otherwise I think I would have stayed home. :) We didn't stay Saturday night: I think we were all a little camped out.

This week is a short school week since Thursday is Thanksgiving. We'll be staying home all weekend!

I have a little less than 2 months left before baby 6 makes her appearance. Believe me, I can hardly wait. :)

Giving thanks to God for everything!
