September Recap

On to September... it flew by at the blink of an eye! Geez!

The month started with me having a tooth extracted at the last minute. Ouch! Then we lost Joey the second week. What a rough start to a month!

But we also had some fun times during the month. We visited Louisville for some quick fun. We went to the North Warren Fall Festival. Then we headed to Beech Bend for one last hurrah before Summer was over. We have loved having season passes this year, it is a great place for kids our age! We had Griffin's friend Liam stay the night, so our first technical "sleepover". We went to Mcneil's fall festival also. We had Kadyns birthday party at Jacksons Orchard, my mom came up to visit and we went to a WKU football game, all in one day! And as if that isn't enough, on that same day Mr.Pate's mom brought us a new dog. (More details on him later, hopefully!) Grady also got his first haircut at the end of the month (ahhh how is he big enough for that?!).

{Redeemer Church} Block Party!

We threw a Block Party in Northridge neighborhood (which is our neighborhood) in October. It was a gross day, so I was pretty worried about the turn out. BUT we actually had a great group of people come from the neighborhood! I was so thankful! We were able to meet several people and get our name out there, so I think it was a huge success. And our church members did an outstanding job serving! Redeemer Folks are the best!

August Recap

Since I got so behind on the blog, I am gonna go ahead a do a few month updates so I remember what we did.

It's a hard month for me to recap because I switched phones and didn't get all of my stuff moved over to it. But here is a quick recap:

• We had Eli's birthday party.
• The kids spent at week at my parents house. There school was closed for training, so my dad took vacation time to keep them for us. Sooo thankful for that! It is a hard time of year for me to take off (and most of the rest of family bc they work in schools too), so this was a huge blessing. The boys had a blast!
• Mr.Pate started a new job. He is now working at Bristow Elementary as the ALC room teacher. That is the room where kids go if they are in trouble, need to finish work, need to calm down etc. He is still working Part-Time for Servpro, and then of course with church. It's kinda crazy! Ha! He really felt God was calling him to take this opportunity to get into the school and get to know more of the community we are trying to reach. So far so good!
• We had dinner at the Staggs and played games. So fun!
• We went to Beech Bend with the Watsons and Uncle D, but ended up seeing lots of friends there that day.
• Grandma and Papaw visited.
• I went to the dermatologist to get a sketchy spot on my leg frozen off (spoiler alert, I had to do it again in Sept and I think that one took)
• WKU started back, which is always a super busy time for me.
• We had dinner at the Watsons with the Broadys also. Super fun.
• A few friends did a Freezer Cooking Day! Which I loved! It has been so helpful.
• We finished up Parking Lot Party for the Summer too. Gonna miss those crazies!!
• We finished up our bible study! Proud of us for sticking through it, and I really learned a whole lot.
• And on nights we didn't have "events" we played outside as much as possible! We had some sprinkler fun, lots of wagon rides, and the boys played some driveway tennis :-)
