I can’t believe it has been so long since I've posted anything. This summer/September has been a bit crazy. This was my first year of actually having a garden that produced a wonderful amount of food for us to eat. It was so amazing to go out and pick our produce from our very own garden and it definitely kept us busy. I was hoping to have a fall harvest as well, however that will probably be a very small harvest. With my work schedule and it getting dark so early it limits my time in the garden I leave for work at 7:30 and get home at 7 pm, oh the joys of commuting.

We officially have three dogs at our house now; my two family dogs have stayed with us ever since their weekend visit. They have brought so much joy to our lives and Asa’s. Our little Chihuahua who is only three pounds and is a result of a puppy mill had two seizures last weekend. So after two vet visits a thorough blood test and urine analysis which their was blood in his urine. They believe that he is fighting off a major infection. His white blood cell count was extremely high not the cells that represent cancer though thank goodness. So he is antibiotics and steroids for 14 days, hopefully this will fix whatever he is fighting.  I’m grateful that Dean is not working right now and is only taking evening classes so he can bring him to his vet appointments & keep an eye on our baby (or little man as Dean would say.) All the tests results should be back Thursday or Friday at the latest.

A new school year has started and we have survived our first month! Getting 20 preschoolers adjusted to full day school can be rough and boy have we battled some screamers, criers and hitters! But we survived, YAY!! My new co-teacher is also amazing and we've discovered we have a lot of the same interests which is nice; especially when we can just sit back and laugh at our chaotic days. I plan on posting more later this week and discussing one of my new hobbies!!
