School is underway and in full swing. My oldest step-daughter is definitely going to be graduating this year. Technically she should only be a Junior but she has been working her tooshie off taking extra classes. She also works part-time so she's one busy girl. She has narrowed her college choice down to 1 semi-local school...Central Michigan. This is after much un-needed drama the other night when her dad told her she couldn't go to an international university. Kids! expecting to have it all their way.
Next in line is Laney who was finding school boring so we have asked a few of her teachers to give her some extra projects. For a short stories class she is working on putting a book together. This will co-inside with her art class and she will be illustrating it as well. The final product will be displayed in December during our school's Fine Arts Night. I can't wait to read her story. I find writings of hers laying around the house from time to time and she's a super writer! I'd love to have it published in a hardcover book for her (and family) to have as a keepsake.
Next the 2 middle schoolers are typical middle schoolers with tons of drama on a daily basis. Mariah just finished up volleyball. She did really well this season. I'm very proud of her. Alex has is done with cross country and has started basketball. He's just busy all the time.
And Mr. Simon Cooper....well he's just too smart for his own good. He has really gotten into Legos. We can't believe some of the things he builds. He's really pretty good at it. He sits at the table all day and builds. I love it.

The weather here has been beautiful this weekend. Our last varsity football game was Friday, Saturday Alex had a birthday party to go to. Joey and I were able to get out together to see a movie. This morning the boys and I carved our pumpkins and after Joey gets out of work we are going costume shopping. Hopefully Alex can still find something. Halloween has snuck up on us way to quickly this year. Hopefully all the ghost and goblins are ready for next weekend.
I can't believe we are only 1 month away from Thanksgiving and 2 months from Christmas! Weren't we just there??
