Hello, LiveJournal! So nice to see you.

Work is chug chug chugging along. It's October. One month of the school year is down the drain. It started pretty quickly - not quite full speed but hardly a slow grow. I'm glad for the income, because it sure is needed around these parts. Child care is expensive! I have three more school years' worth of day care/preschool before Tukey can go to public school. Freaking autumn birthdays! Whose idea was it to have that kid in November? (Answer: I thought it would take more than one try to get pregnant.)

Took the kids to see Sesame Street Live the other day and it was so super exciting. Tukey was way into dancing like a maniac after an initial major freak-out about the monsters/characters. I managed to convince him that they weren't going to touch him and he enjoyed the show after that. There was a point where a couple of dancers were dressed up as chocolate chip cookies and he said, "Those dancing cookies are made of GUYS!" which was pretty much the cutest thing I have ever heard in my life. August was still really into it too, the music and dancing and all that, which I was happy about because I was worried she'd be a little too old.

Fall is in full swing around here and we went apple picking and made a lot of applesauce and apple crisp. We have made and consumed squash pie. We solved the corn maze. The trees are starting to color and the sunrises and sunsets are brilliant rose. Soccer is soccering and is completely adorable. It is getting darker earlier and the nights are so chilly. We are getting some family pictures taken tomorrow by my friend's sister and I'm hoping for outdoor - so fingers crossed on the weather.

Punk is in swimming lessons and I'm committed to them until she can float/swim enough for emergency purposes. I don't need her to be a competitive swimmer, but we go to the lake and we go on boats and well, there are two of them and one of me so there needs to be some rudimentary swimming. She is not loving it but she is making progress and I am really glad for that. I am hoping that by next summer, she'll be a competent doggie-paddler. :)

Life around here is incredibly gogogo and I am perpetually behind but in the end, it's good. It is hard as heck to only have the kids half the time (especially now that school/work is on - the time is so short) and I miss them terribly. But life goes on.

And how are you?
