September 2016 Recap

September RecapI feel like I was super slow with reading in September – I got a bit bogged down by Burial Rites (it was so sad! A great book, but it took me ages to get through), and then Harry Potter #7 also took awhile.

It was still a great month though: mostly nice weather, homeschooling was going well, and I had a great event the final weekend of September that I was anticipating all month.

September 2016 in Stats

Books Read This Month: 9
Books Read For The Year: 65

Things That Happened
  • Book club retreat!
  • In the Facebook book club we discussed Burial Rites
  • G went to his first Cub Scouts meetings
Best Things I Did or Saw
  • Lots of soccer, and it’s (mostly) fun seeing them both play.
  • Getting texts from R the Saturday I was at the retreat, telling me every time the kids scored a goal. They each scored three goals (!), so clearly I need to go out of town more often. It was by far their highest-scoring games.
What’s Cooking
  • Amazing food at the book club dinner party and retreat. There are some really good cooks in my book club.
  • I made a *fantastic* Sunday dinner before heading out of town – steak, shallot sauce, pan roasted green beans, and scalloped potatoes. Unbelievably good!
What I’m Anticipating in October
  • Book club – Harry Potter #s 1 – 7 for my in-person book club and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow in the Facebook group.
  • My mother-in-law will be visiting. Yay!
  • Halloween – I need to get moving on costumes.
  • Belt testing, again. Going for Red for G and Purple for H. At least I assume they’ll both be ready to test mid-month.
  • The end of soccer.
