This has been a fun two weeks. I got lots of books read, and got lots of fun stuff done. 🙂 Last weekend, we went to the pumpkin patch / corn festival and had lots of fun in the corn pit:
A couple days later, we carved our pumpkins. Mine had a few rotten parts, so I carved them out and pretended that I planned my pumpkin that way from the beginning. The kids were so confused!
On Wednesday, Aaron and the kids went trick-or-treating. D was Hermione and M was Batman. Unfortunately, I was feeling really tired that night and didn’t end up getting pictures for you.
We also had parent-teacher-conferences. M is doing very well in school – the teacher is thrilled with him. D is also doing much better than last year, though we still need to get the anxiety under control. I think part of the improvement was that she clicks better with this year’s teacher (who is calmer) than she did with last year’s teacher. Sometimes that happens – it doesn’t mean last year’s teacher was bad, just that sometimes students and teachers don’t click.
I’m down to 6 weeks more of my pregnancy, and will start weekly doctor appointments now. *le sigh* But at least I’m in the last stretch! Today, in fact, is our day-long birthing class. I was skeptical that taking a birthing class would be a good use of time, but decided that my anxiety disorder has been acting up quite a bit with this pregnancy, and I’ll probably be calmer if I feel like I’ve considered everything that needs to be considered.

Reading this coming week
Here are the books that I plan on making progress on during the next week. I know I read a lot of books at once. But that’s the way I roll. 🙂
Over the past two weeks, I have completed 7 books – leaving me on track to get to my goal of 75 books this year.
I pulled off quite the book haul over the past two weeks. The Lies We Told is my BOTM book for October. Scriptures of the World’s Religions and A Survey of Hinduism will be enjoyed slowly as part of my personal education experience. Washington Black is my Litsy Markup Postal Book Club choice for November. I received The Quiet You Carry and A Bright Future as NetGalley ARCS. (Eventually they’ll stop giving me ARCS as my percentage of books reviewed is 54%. I’m currently working on reading down my list while only requesting one book per release-month. I’m out to May in Nonfiction and March in Fiction.)
