We have officially started Inspiration Island. I am pleased with the decor of the room and how well the kids decorated their Pirate Ships and Treasure Boxes. Every time I switch our theme for our curriculum I have each class choose a name. This year we have the Punky Potty Trained Pre-School Pirates, The Blue Pearl, and Cross Bones. Once they choose a name they then make a sign- they made Shields for the Kids in the Kingdom, Circus Act Banners for James & John Thunder Bros Circus,-I try to keep the signs matching with the theme. So this time they decorated Pirate Ships. I will post a picture Wednesday of the room decor :)

The kids also received tote bags for the younger ones, who don't carry a bible or bring it to actually read :) and then bible covers for the older class who use theirs for their lesson. We normally do shirts or hats too, but I decided to have a little change this time around. Below are the Punky Potty Trained Pre-School Priates totes, treasure chests, and craft.

We are also very busy planning our Holy Ghost Town. I have it all mapped out, I just need 3 more volunteers to "adopt" a room and the pre-planning is done. We are having a meeting tomorrow night. I don't know what I am dressing up as. I was thinking about a cross between pirate and saloon girl. We'll see.

I still can't believe how fast September went. We were very busy. We ended up going to 3 Angel games in 2 weeks and I forgot my camera ALL 3 TIMES!

This past weekend we had a family party for the September Birthday's on my dad's side (got that) and we went to my Aunt Paula and Uncle Jerry's house. They live in Oak Glen-which is the cutest little town. I grew up going there so you kind of take advantage of it and now that I am older I see how cool it actually is. We got so used to it that it was nothing special. We go up there at least 3 times a year. Anyway, we had a really good time this weekend. We went apple picking and bought Cherry Apple Cider and apple donuts. Soooo Good. Sounds weird-but they are heaven! They have this sugar spice on them. Yum! And of course you can't leave without your carmel apple!

Here's Melissa picking Apples! If you look close you can see her birthday present-her new Tattoo on her arm.

My aunt lives in this really cool house right in the middle of the forest. She literally has bears in her back yard every day. Her dogs have to be in doors- sometimes they are outside when the bears come and Buddy chases them up the trees. Their dog Buddy is HUGE! He is the cutest thing.

Here is the side of the house.

This is the front view. And below that is the drive way.

I don't talk about my dad's side of the family much-so here are some pictures of my "other" family.

This is my Uncle Glen and my Grandma.

Here is Gary (Aunt Laraine's Boyfriend), Cousin Damien, Grandpa, & Tim.

This is my Aunt Laraine and her grand daugther Paulina (My Cousin Paulette's Daughter)

Here is my dad and Aunt Paula out on her deck.

So now October. I love the fall. It is my favorite season. And I love the holidays. They are super busy-but I love it.
