Busy. busy, busy...


The time has flown by. I have not had a chance to write and update...
basically here is how it has been:

1. Organizing a Halloween Carnival Fundraiser
Our middle school children came up with the idea of having a fundraiser for Halloween. The children all paired up and set games for the children to play, with prizes to win, while I set up the decorations, with a lot of help from both the parents and students.
It was a great success that seemed to be enjoyed by all who came.
Here are a few photos:




2. Christmas play practice
Once again, and with much joy, I am helping out with the middle school Christmas play. It takes up only about an hour a day, three times a week. It is a lot of fun to see the children in their roles, and try to help them be the best actors they can be!
This year we are doing "Christmas in July"
It is a cute play about the new year's calendar getting all messed up when the person taking over drops the calendar, and the days become scattered. Very cute!

3. The weather has certainly changed for the colder. We have had really cold winds even though the sun still shines. Last night there was a light dusting of snow...
Winter is here and has come on quickly!

Ok...so it doesn't seem like too much, but between these events, exercising every day, fixing meals, walking Bella, our dog...
oh yea...I forgot...

Bella was attacked by another dog here on our camp. It was not a pretty picture, and truthfully, I thought the other dog was going to bite her throat. Luckily, she didn't, and someone came to help pull the other dog off Bella. She has a few, minor scratches, but it was scary. I am very upset at the owner because she is very lackadaisical when it comes to the safety with her dog. It is a delicate situation because it is strongly suggested to not bring animals here (for other reasons), but this makes it even more difficult because I do not want to upset that delicate line of being able to bring them in.
Anyways...
between all this and that, really just daily life, my blog has been neglected!
I will try to post more often, but the reality is that it may not be as often as my readers like.
I will do my best...

Happy Winter!

Sounds like your real life is full and busy! Don't worry about blogging, real life is more important!
I'm glad your dog is ok. I hope he doesn't get attacked again!

Sorry to hear about your dog trouble. That must be so frustrating.

Love the Halloween ideas. And boy, you sure are on top of things doing Christmas stuff so diligently already. I'm sure that play will be awesome.
