Believe it or not, I have struggled in an attempt to come up with a catchy or at least remotely interesting journal entry . . . especially when you consider the fact it's been some time since I have updated mine!
As a family, we're doing ok . . . busy, but good. Everyone is healthy and happy. We got a new furnace just in time for the cold snap that came last month (but didn't last for very long). When we bought our house in late 2004, the furnace was already old (almost as old as me!) and was in need of replacing, sooner rather than later.
Cassie has adjusted *very* well to sixth grade - in fact, she just got her first report card of the year - and she has a 95 average! I'm so proud of her. I was concerned that with all the other "stuff" she's had to deal with over the last few months (which I alluded to in my more recent journal missives), that her entry into junior high might prove to be a bit more challenging for her. Once again, she never ceases to amaze me.
Cam is growing so fast. I can't believe his first birthday is coming up (we're waiting until his sister comes back from visiting her father to have his party). I just love both my kids so much; I wish I could put their growing on "pause" for a bit so I have to mentally "freeze" how they are in my mind . . . and take loads of pictures.
I still can't believe the holidays are coming. I'm still trying to soak up what's left of autumn! Autumn is one of my favorite seasons, and it goes by so quickly. Halloween was a hoot, with Cassie dressed as a "scary mummy" and Cam as a baby Chewbacca (Star Wars); they had a lot of fun. Cassie was really great, making sure Cam got candy - some of the houses were a bit inaccessible with his stroller. She's such a good big sister!
Sorry this entry is a bit short, but I hope to include more details and information later . . .
Until then, take care and stay warm,
