November 2017 Recap

The Month in Stats

Books Read This Month: 17
Books Read This Year: 217

Things That Happened

  • Book club – At Home in the World for my in-person book club and Ordinar Grace in the Facebook group.
  • Thanksgiving, with a pie extravaganza.
  • Basketball began. H doesn’t like it as much as soccer, but she’s liking it more every time she plays or practices. G has improved quite a bit, but it’s still not his game. I wouldn’t be surprised if this is his last year playing. Although, it’s such a good time of year to have a scheduled (indoor!) activity for them.
  • G received his 1st degree decided black belt (the one with his name on it). Super exciting!
  • Both big kids started jiu-jitsu. They usually only go once, maybe twice a week, but they seem to enjoy it.

What I’m Anticipating in December

  • Belt testing! H is going for her senior red belt.
  • Our 15th anniversary. We have no special plans.
  • Christmas! I am not ready.
  • Lots of Scout activities – both Cub Scouts and Girl Scouts.
  • Book club – no official title (just enjoying the end-of-the-year party) for my in-person book club and Swear on This Life in the Facebook group.

Books I Read in November

I shared the list of books I read in a recent post.

I feel like I should have finished more readalouds with the kids, but these are all I could remember.
