Fall Makeover {Homeschooling}

You probably noticed that Luv'N Lambert Life has gotten a fall makeover.  I'm pretty proud of it.  I created the header myself, matched colors and fonts, and picked out a blogger background of leaves.  I think it looks great and it really wasn't hard to put together on my own.  So the blog is officially ready for fall!

My week has been spent cleaning out my house.  My Mom has revamped the kids rooms (I'm so thankful!) and I have worked on the living room and other areas of my home.  I still have much to do but it's so much easier with her help.

Today I sorted and matched socks.  I didn't count them but between five people I'm sure there were well over a hundred pair.  I matched an appropriate amount and I tossed all the rest.  Three Walmart bags FULL of socks went into my trash!  I'm soooo thrilled to be relieved of those things.  And I sorted them all while watching Gone With The Wind, the movie my Mother was named for. 

We did a ton of other stuff today but the socks topped my Whoo-hoo list!  I can hardly wait to see what I manage to clean out tomorrow.  I feel a fall clean coming on!

Speaking of fall, September 1st is right around the corner.  The first day of hunting season means lots of deer meat and filling the freezer!

Speaking of filling the freezer, I've had to clear it out so that can happen - just in case.  I've been planning meals around the meats that are currently stocked in the freezer, making room for my favorite meat: venison, or deer.  We absolutely love it at our house.

Fall means lots of time to do school.  It's the perfect way to stay busy.  Plus cooler temperatures allow us to do more outdoor activities for school and offer the perfect opportunity to observe nature as it changes. It's the time of year we most love!

I'm hoping to have curriculum plans complete and in order soon so that we can begin formal schoolwork.  This will allow time to work through until Christmas, taking a few days off for the holiday and Winston's birthday.  I'm partially there.

So that's what we are up to right now.  Everyday we are Luv'N Lambert Life a little bit more!
