Free time, what free time?? and other ramblings

So, who said I was going to have lots of free time once all my kids started school???  School's been in for almost 2 months now and I'm still waiting for that free time.  Honestly, I think I'm more busy now, with less down time, than I was last year when I still had my youngest home 2 days a week and had shorter child free days. 
What's up with that??

It's been good though.  I do think my youngest likes being at the school with her big sisters.  But it'll all be over before I know it.  Then she'll be in 1st grade and then second before I know it, and then my oldest will be in...*gulp* middle school.  Oh, I don't even want to think about it!

And now fall is here/coming.  We are in that awkward stage of season change here in N. GA.  Some days are coolish, some days are warm, some days start out fairly chilly and then warm up to fairly not chilly.  Do you bring a sweater?  Wear pants?  Dare I bring out the boots? 
My general rule of thumb (and yes, I have a rule of thumb concerning the weather) for what to wear this time of year is, if the high is in the 70's, jeans with short sleeves.  If the high is in the 60's, long sleeves and jean and boots if the outfit calls for it. 

There are a few signs of color.  It's coming.  At the very least, it's definitely not summer anymore.  It's flummer. 

These pictures are from last fall.  The one above was taken on one of the days my youngest was home with me (she was in preschool 3 days a week).  I often take my kids on photo shoots just for fun.  Fun for me.

The picture below is my oldest playing in the leaves.  I can't wait for the leaves to change all the way so I can take new pics.  Fall is my favorite time of year!

The Funnies

My husband was cleaning out a bedside drawer and came across an old cassette tape.  My 9 year old, who was near by, grabbed the tape and said, "Oooo, I wanna watch it!"

We were quizzing the kids on the books of the Bible by asking, what's the the 2nd book, the 5th book and so on.  When my husband asked what the 4th book was, my 7 year old was a little stumped.  So, he told her.  Numbers.  To which she replied, "26?"  And he said, "No, Numbers."  "18?" 

*(in case you are unfamiliar with the Bible, the 4th book is called Numbers.  It is not A number as my 7 year old was suggesting)  We thought it was funny.
