Well, I guess this is the new normal. I have to say that putting aside their public schools, Louisville seems like a fantastic place to live. We are finding our groove. It’s not a big city, so I can get anywhere I need to be. I haven’t yet felt unsafe or scared in any areas I have driven through. That is very nice! Jason has been out of town a bit the last two weeks. That’s different. It’s just what they needed on that project, not for all projects. Other things I have noticed: Whoever designed the highways here should be shoot. Feeders are a good thing and a totally alien concept outside of Texas evidently. In Houston they stack grass that is being transported. Here they roll it. It looks like great big jelly rolls with green filling. :)
Dancing while folding laundry
Headed off to school. No seminary while Daddy is out of town. Mama can’t be in two different places at the same time. Joy has a new job and she’s very good at it. There are two bathrooms upstairs. Six people get ready in one – it’s just the way timing works out. So I have a laundry basket in the most utilized one. As she is the last to get ready in the morning, Joy’s job is to bring the laundry basket from the bathroom and bring it to the railing. She then throws all of the laundry down stairs. I take it the ten feet from the entry way to the laundry. Joy puts the basket back into it’s spot in the bathroom. She loves it!
Cute Brother – he continues to do well in his school. He is happy and is doing well. O&M is great. So happy he is here!
Have I mentioned their ridiculous bus ride?
Out for a walk – loving the sidewalks! Memorial Northwest didn’t have any.
Had to take Bella in to the doctor for ringworm – yeah! The joys of sharing germs in schools. She wanted to fill out her own form. I sometimes put Brother into the wheelchair when I need to do something with Bella. He can move it around. He kept backing into the chairs and just laughing! The office staff thought he was so funny!
I found two family names! Jessi took them to the temple! So grateful we are still close to the temple here.
Joy and Bella’s had a Gallop A Thon – one of those money making things the PTA does. The girls didn’t care, but they got cute shirts!
Jessi and I attended the Kentuckiana Family History Conference. The next day she finished her goal to index 1000 names! Sammi and Joy making cupcakes!
These two sillies ready for school! Playing in the backyard. Jessi drew a picture of Bella. She had to make something that represented something that inspired her! Ahh.
Our beautiful roses in the back yard. They have not been tended to, but they are beautiful! We have enjoyed these temperatures of late!
We put up two hummingbird feeders and we have two hummingbirds! I just love them! I know they will have leave us soon to migrate, but I have LOVED having them visit!
Sammi had a seminary party that she attended and had a good time.
My crazy monkeys reading poetry to each other when they were supposed to be in bed! Guess they technically were in bed, except for Jessi, but still!
Mama’s kinda freaking out about the upcoming winter! I’ve been buying coats and gloves as I see good deals. I was reading that the NE and the Ohio River Valley are expected to have a harder than normal winter. “Oh, poor people.” I thought. Then I looked up where the Ohio Valley is – that’s where I live!! Oh! Poor me! The girls love the boxes things are coming in!
A ward family ding dong ditched us with treats and popcorn for movie night. They also included a list of their favorite places to go here in Louisville. Can’t wait to check those out!
Jessi helping me make some wiki stick and cardboard pre braille cards. Jessi went and hung out with a bunch of LDS girls. She enjoyed that.
We had to have labs as part of the girl’s physicals. I waited for a bit because they have been sick and I wanted true results. Very traumatic for Bella, OK for Joy. Definitely cow pies (French fries) and juice afterwards though! Bella’s results were awesome!
Waiting and waiting and waiting…..
Brother’s schoolwork Daddy got to take Brother to school one morning!
Our ward had a Meet and Greet. Lizzy went and played volleyball. Sammi took a video of Jessi during the Three Legged Race! We have a huge ward here!
