September and October

I feel so bad that I do not post frequently enough. I tell myself that I need to do this at least once a week, but time seems to fly by and it's months later without a post.

September was a busy month for us. I took the plunge and became a Girl Scout leader. I had training, unit meetings, parent meetings and our first cookie sales. We had Cookie Caravan, which is essentially a booth set up to sell cookies. It was a full weekend of selling cookies.

In addition to Girl Scouts I spent time running Samantha to the ER and orthopedic doctor. She fell at school and broke her right wrist. The damn monkey bars struck again. Jordan fell off the monkey bars in 1st grade, but he broke his arm closer to the elbow and it was a bad break. Samantha's was a minor break in the wrist. One of the teachers who witnessed it said that she fell with all of her weight on that arm. It happened at her last recess that occurs just prior to dismissal time. I was not able to get her into the orthopedic that afternoon so we took her to the ER to get her x-rayed. Prior to our ER visit I made an appointment with the doctor for the following morning to get her cast. I just knew that the arm was broken. She goes back on the 26th to get an x-ray and hopefully get the cast off.

This weekend we finally we able to go camping again and the kids had a great time. The campground had their trick-or-treating night on Saturday. The girls sure made a haul. I have my large Tupperware bowl FULL of candy. They will be getting alot more too, I'm sure when we go trick-or-treating around town on Sunday night. We trick-or-treat on the evening before Halloween because there is a big parade in a neighboring city on Halloween night.

There is the condensed version of what has been happening. Hopefully I will be able to update more frequently in the coming months.
