I've noticed that blogging in this kind of sense isn't as popular anymore. Most people are using YouTube for this type of thing and reserving blogs for business. That has made me wonder if I should keep writing. I have thought about vlogging, but it's just not the same to me. I don't love being on camera. Speaking doesn't allow me the creative room that writing does. It does allow more available time, I would think, but that is likely the only positive I can think of for that platform. So, for now I will write as time allows.
This week is going to be busy with a lot of big things. I have IEP meetings for both of the boys, or should I say "young men"! Ha ha. They are both in high school now. I am still homeschooling Beans, but he still gets speech services through the school district.
Bubby is a junior now and his meeting will be highly focused on transitioning out of high school and into some kind of vocational school, or program. He has stood firm in that he doesn't want to attend anymore schooling after high school, so I guess maybe it will be a program? They do have several around here that he can get started doing soon. It's an exciting and anxious time for me. I feel so nervous about helping him to make decisions. It feels like the beginning of school again, I guess. I used to feel so intimidated by the school administrators and think that it all seemed so scary and permanent. I realized a couple years ago that it wasn't as hard as I was making it out to be, and that I had all kinds of options for schooling if one didn't work out. I was stressing too hard over nothing. Now I have that part figured out, here comes another new chapter that feels scary. Guess that's how it goes.
Bubby will also be turning 17 Friday! He was so little when I began this blog. I can't believe he's already going to be 17.
Of course it's fall again.
I really love the colors of the leaves as the trees prepare for winter. Here they are still turning. Sometimes we get a vibrant change in the next week and sometimes the leaves just kind of fall off from the dull golden green they are now. We'll see. I hope to get a few pictures. I haven't gotten any yet. I have thought about trying to take Beans for walks again. We haven't tried that for years (without dad to help), because he usually runs away from me and at this point he's much bigger than me, but we could give it a try. It would be nice to walk around and take pictures of all the fall colors.
Since I haven't gotten out to take any recent pictures of the fall landscape here is a picture of one of my Halloween decorations that I accidentally ran over this weekend. Hahahaha.
