All the Fall Festivities

October has a been a stressful one for our family. But amid the stresses, we have been doing some fun things and enjoying fall. We made our annual trip to the Pumpkin Patch and took last Saturday afternoon to decorate Halloween sugar cookies with my siblings and the cousins. What a fun and tasty event that was! I love Fall!

Hailey's D.A.R.E Graduation

Today was Hailey's 5th grade D.A.R.E graduation. She has been learning about Drugs, Alcohol and Violence prevention for about two weeks now at school. During the process, she would come home every day with a new stat or thing she'd learned that day. She was also required to write a one page essay on what she learned. She took it very seriously and wrote a great one! I am grateful for all the information they were taught! What an amazing program.

For the graduation, the parents were invited to watch their child receive there grad certificate and T-shirt after listening to a few of the kid's essays. They also listened to encouragement from the captains of the Bingham Football team who told them why they should stay drug free! Then they all signed each others T-shirts and got signatures from the football players and Officer Campbell. I hope this will be a memorable experience that she will remember for years to come.

October Book Club at Zinn Bistro

This month for book club, we had lunch together at Zinn Bistro. Some of us had been there and some had not. It was soo yummy from the best pastries to the best pulled pork sandwich in town! I love these girls so much and always leave our discussions with a stronger determination to be better. I've known all these girls since high school! Our lives have all had their ups and downs, goods and bads, but we've always maintained close friends. Thanks for your friendship girls. We missed you Ash, Trish and Christina!
