I've decided that if my full time job was as a blogger...I would definitely be fired! (though I supposed if this WAS really my job, ideally I would actually have time set aside each day to "work.") Anyway, I'm always feeling bad that I don't do a better job of updating my blog. I mean, its not like I don't have stuff to post about...so luckily the kids are in bed and I'm done watching Desperate Housewives so I figured I would squeeze out a few minutes for an update.
One job I have not been fired from is chaperon and field trip driver for Kobe and Tehani's school. Tehani's class took a field trip to the Red Barn on Friday so I took some time off from work to go for the fun. The kids learned all about apples and we got to pick a pumpkin. You can see Tehani's choice in the picture--though she was a little disappointed that we couldn't find a "smaller" pumpkin (I think that is why she is not looking in the photo--she is still trying to scan the pumpkin patch to make sure that we didn't miss a smaller one somewhere along the way.) And it's a good thing that she did get a pumpkin from there since the ones we were growing at home are still green. We'll see if we actually get around to carving it (I'm not a fan of carving pumpkins.) I know, what kind of mom doesn't have their kids carve pumpkins. I don't know if it is the smell or just the mess. I also don't eat pumpkin pie...so I don't think the kids have ever had pumpkin pie either--which means I should definitely be fired from Halloween as well! Good thing I have my day job.
PS--Thanks to everyone that has donated for Kobe & Tehani's fundraiser for their school. They are both very close to the goal and we will all be running on Wednesday for the 5K --thank goodness it is still supposed to be relatively warm. Wish me (and the kids) good luck!!
