My Life Lately - Hunters and Homecomings

Other than talking about my new fur baby, it's been a bit since I've talked about what's going on in my life.  Not that it's uber interesting, but here's what we've been up to:

Jason and I purchased a new (to us) 2016 Chevy Silverado.  Minus the payments, I like everything about it.  I traded in my Chevy Trailblazer that I drove for over nine years.  It was a trusty vehicle, but it was time for an upgrade.  This truck's got the bells and whistles, which I'm not used to, so I've been learning which button and screen works for what.

Emma went to her last Homecoming dance with her boyfriend of one year.  She's a senior in high school so these memories are especially bittersweet right now.

QHS Marching Band

Speaking of Homecoming, I've lived in Quincy for over 18 years now and this is the first year I've went to their high school parade.  None of our kids have attended QHS so it's never been a big thing.  I ended up going with a friend for this one.  The school spirit was fun to watch.

Jason and I celebrated our 17th year wedding anniversary on October 4th.  This is the first year we didn't really do anything for or with each other.  He ended up spending the night in the woods hunting and I spent the night with a girl friend.

Jason and Harley

I'm pretty much a hunting widow for now.  Jason's gone on the weekends trying to get a big buck.  He took my 3 year old great-nephew out last Sunday for the first time.  Harley was proud to say he "scared away a deer".  He still hasn't quite got the hang of how it all works!

I reached my first financial goal towards my mission trip to Cambodia in March.  It's been busy with fundraisers and yard sales.  I'm taking the month of October off, then going to get back into making the other half of money needed.
What have you been up to?

Sounds busy! Happy Anniversary! We have a 2005 Honda Civic. My husband wanted to sell it to his parents. I'm like, "Um wait! Mica's going to be 15 in Aug. I want it for him to learn to drive on." Cute homecoming photo!

Your daughter is beautiful. I'm w you on the bittersweet part. My oldest (also Emma!) is growing up so fast. It's heartbreaking in some ways but beautiful in others.

Hope both our men get a good buck this year!
