Oh my .... it's been almost a month since I've blogged, and really, it's quite unheard of for me to not blog!! I've been quite busy, actually.
Yesterday I just finished coaching my last season of volleyball for Maddie's team. While I enjoyed the run for the past 3 years, I'm ready to be done.
I was called to serve in the Young Women's organization at church in November, so I'm getting used to being around teenaged girls now instead of little kids!! I had to resnap pictures of Katie for a project the leaders are doing in YW at church, and while we didn't use these pictures, I sure do love them of Katie!
We finally have fall here in San Antonio! We don't see the leaves change colors very often (probably because we lack the type of trees that turn the beautiful reds and oranges!), but I did find some beautiful colors at my last photoshoot! I also found that our tree out front of our house turns red in the fall too! YAY! It's no secret that fall is my favorite time of year!
Mike started tile work in our kitchen -- hasn't finished it yet. But, at least the bar section is 87% done ... he still needs to seal it up. I can't believe I didn't take a final picture. To come later!
The Young Women had their Young Women in Excellence night at church. Each girl talked about what they worked on for their projects that year. Katie & her BFF Madison danced the Highland Fling. You can see Katie's profile picture on the "flame". Her poster was also drawn by herself, and she added in words found in magazines that reflect how she sees herself.
We had our traditional Sunday dinner every first Sunday of the month -- the month of December was at our friend's Katie's home -- she is an amazing baker and this is her second year of having something for the kids to decorate and take home. This year it was a stable!
