November in Our Home

I am a little behind, but at least my pictures are organized on the computer by month. November was a busy month for our family with homeschooling, Classical Conversations, gymnastics, and starting a new Bradley series. I also taught a breastfeeding class at the crisis pregnancy center. Bud also started Upward basketball, and Thomas jumped in to coach his team. They are enjoying that special time together, and Thomas is learning how to coach six to eight year olds with limited basketball experience.

We spent a lot of time outside this month enjoying cooler temperatures.

We made a trip to Hamilton to visit Thomas’ parents. There was a benefit for the fire department, and the kids enjoyed climbing all over some of the fire trucks. We had fun walking around the square.

I cut 11 inches off my hair, and I love it!

Newborn got married to Sam with Thomas officiating the wedding. As you can see by the picture, he had a really hard time keeping a straight face while saying things like, “Newborn, do you take Sam…”

We spent a Saturday at the Brazos Valley Worldfest. With a huge amount of International students at A&M, there were many countries represented. The kids enjoyed learning more about countries they have learned about with our geography lessons at home and their CC memory work. Sugar was amazed by the fancy dresses, and we all had fun with the food.

Thomas built a bike rack for the garage. This has been helpful in preventing the pile of bikes that has been growing over the years.

A sweet friend of ours got married, and we all had a blast at her wedding.

We celebrated cooler weather by roasting marshmallows in the backyard.

We spent Thanksgiving here with several friends coming over. There were 10 adults and 9 children, and more than enough food. Once again, we bought a smoked turkey from C&J’s bbq, which was delicious. We had a great time, and were so happy to spend time with lots of friends, but I didn’t get any pictures.
