Since October started, it has been quite hectic around here.  I turned 40, left for a trip to California, subbed at school, went on a field trip with Reagan, attended a wonderful Surprise party hosted by my husband, cheered on our son, Patrick at the Middle School State Cross Country meet in Des Moines, attended a 60th birthday party, and watched our other son Bennett play football.  Needless to say, I have spent this week trying to catch up with emails, chores, regular mail, and here on my blog.  Please enjoy some of the photos from our last 2 weeks and stay tuned for a more specific post on my trip to California!

The finish!  He got 39th place out of 65 boys and earned a medal on this tough course!

A fire in our small town on October 3rd destroyed a bar/restaurant.  

Our girl weekend begins!

Just one of the amazing views we saw in California.

Jumping on the bouncy pillow.  I think every yard needs one of these!

At my Surprise 40th Birthday Party!

My life is blessed because of these friends!

The guy who made it all happen….my husband!
