First Box of Raisins...

Normal day, let me be aware of the treasure you are.
Let me learn from you,
love you, bless you before you depart.
Let me not pass you by in quest of
some rare and perfect tomorrow.
Let me hold you while I may,
for it may not always be so.
One day I shall dig my nails into the earth,
or bury my face in the pillow,
or stretch myself taut,
or raise my hands to the
sky and want more than
all the world,
your return.

(I just love the quote)
She is just growing up so fast. One year is
around the corner and I am
amazed at how she has grown.
Today, Dan and I sat on the ground
and had her walk back and forth
between us and she was laughing
so much and taking more and more
steps. Her confidence was growing
and it was so cute to see her take her little steps
but of course I started thinking how much I
am going to miss her little crab crawl as she grows up.

Homework Blues

Estimating and Counting raisins, cheerios
and pennies for math homework. Isn't it funny
that he has NO idea this is the easiest he will ever have it!

Pumpkin Patch

Our trip to the pumpkin patch was a little different this year.
For starters there was four of us ;) and instead of going out
to one of the big corn maze, bounce house types of
pumpkin patch, we went to a smaller patch of pumpkins
just around the corner from our house. We had so
much fun enjoying the pumpkins and the four of us together!

Benny Bear from Aidan's class got to go with us!

Elli was just checking out all the pumpkins!


They had a small but mighty hill that Aidan was all over

for a long time! Good clean (except for his pants) FUN!


Aidan in his class decorating a boomerang
(umm - not a real one)!
His teacher has these "plane trips" in class
and the kids love them! I was lucky enough
to get to join them this past week and it
was so CUTE! His teacher is awesome!

We used our library card to get free passes and
