Autumn, I love it!!!

You would think that it wouldn't be so hard to enter a blog, attach a photo and update about our life but for some reason, I just don't seem to get around to it much. And the next thing I know it's almost November. I love October though, it's my favorite time of year. The leaves are beautiful and right at their peak. A couple of weeks ago we all went to KY to visit Stephen's Dad. Stephen's sister Robbie drove her new Honda Accord. All was well until we got up around the Waynesville area, Ella then puked all over herself, and Robbie's beautiful leather seats, which makes for easy cleaning, but still not good. And don't get me started about the aroma for the next 200 miles. It wasn't really that bad, thankfully I knew where the Wal-Mart in Waynesville was and it wasn't out of our way at all. So we stopped got Ella cleaned up, bought some Febreeze and about a dozen towels (just in case). She was fine the rest of the trip. We had a good time in KY. We went to the Explorium in Lexington which is a science center for kids. Ella had a blast. She enjoyed seeing the horses and of course playing with her Pa Pa Howard and Dorane. We were glad to get home though. It takes a lot out of you to travel with a child even though she could not have behaved any better, it was exhausting for all of us. Let's see what else is new? Not really that much, I am still enjoying my new job. Well not really new I have been here 6 months now. I got a promotion a couple of months ago so that was good. We are finishing up our Football and Soccer season and the Basketball season is about to hit. We will be really busy in a couple of weeks as most leagues start their evaluations and practices in November and December and then games start in Jan. So it will be full on soon. I really love what I do, I could not ask for a better organization to work for. For those of you who want to know more about Upward, go to Well I will sign off for now. I hope it won't be so long next time. Until then keep the Faith!!!
