Well, maybe not Tori so much...But, like the rest of us Vols, her blood does run orange! Last week, her preschool class dressed in their orange to post a picture on Derek Dooley and the team's Facebook page.
J and J had a rowing good time at the church picnic held at the beautiful Roane County Park on Sunday afternoon.
Finally, some nice progress in the kitchen...We are at stage three and four with the cabinets in and the new appliances delivered and installed (except for the dishwasher and microwave). Stage five is in progress...The counter tops are on order, so it is another two-week wait.
I just love this time of the year...cool mornings, warm afternoons, colors changing, fall decorations, Honey crisp apples, outdoor fun, UT football...just to name a few of my favorite things that remind me of a beautiful season. The fall weather has just been perfect this week!
The last two weekends have been spent in the kitchen getting things semi-organized as much as I can. (Remember those pile of boxes in the dining room? We are down to less that half! Hooray!) Our new fridge is the bomb! No more getting on my knees to put away food or shifting things around to find what I need. (Our old one was quite small!) Hopefully, the counter tops will be in sometime during Fall Break.
Speaking of that, we are counting down the days...seven left to be exact. Oh, JJ and I are more than ready. His homework is getting to be too much (and I mean literally...try about two/three hours a night...not to mention the fact I teach all day/Chris works all day and then we come home to teach our son)! AND I am just about over all these new teacher requirements. The teachers at my school feel like we are being told how to teach. Very stressful...So exhausted!
We have a big weekend planned so check back! Hope you are enjoying some great fall days, too.
