ZOO, weekly update & Mortgage Challenge

So got up Monday morning, and the kids had no idea, they thought they were going to have a regular school day. I had all ready had everything packed and in the car, so they know nothing. I yelled field trip, stunned looks came over their face. Told them to be dressed and in the car in 5 minutes. And off we went. It wasn't until we pulled in (after getting turned around a few times) that they realized we were at the zoo. 

Tell ya I LOVE going when we did. Probably one of the last hottest days of the year. No school classes. No crowds. We got to spend time looking at the animals and walking around. We spent a good 3-4 hours there.

So we are now moving into fall. Rain is coming and I'm working on cleaning the outside. Still clearing beds, finding the porch, and still harvesting. Canning pumpkin daily, putting squash on the dryer daily and then turning it into flour. 

Not to mention my mountain of sewing projects. So at night I'm sewing away. Photos one day I'm sure? 

Mortgage front, down to 115,300. Can't wait to hit the 114's. We are now back on track of paying the extra money weekly. Hoping to keep that up between now and the end of the year? Took a week off so we would have money for the chicks sale. Although didn't spend it there, nope, it was spent at the zoo. But it was nice have the kids out. Need to do more outings.
