Beautiful Fall!

It's likely that summer will always be my first love, but the older I get the closer I grow to Fall.  Last year was unsettling with the flood, several moves, crazy high winds, and freezing cold temperatures, leaving me feeling like I missed out on something. This year is more than making up for it! The older girls and I went for a little walk this afternoon and here is just a bit of what we saw:

Fall has definitely arrived here in Northern Colorado! We woke up yesterday to a yard covered in a blanket of leaves. The crazy part is none of them are from our trees. We raked them all up and I am sure there will be more this weekend.

Future Star

Buster is all about football right now. It really bothered him on Sunday that he does not have an "away" jersey. He made due with his orange one. Then there was complaining that looking like a real player is nearly impossible without pads and a helmet....I think I know what Santa might be bringing!

Sleep Tight

It's easy to sleep at night just knowing that we have this little ninja looking after the house. Have I mentioned how much I love this little boy??!!

Pumpkin Patch

We had a really fun weekend, after a very long and busy week! On Friday, Tea and Midge went to a sleepover at the house of some new friends who just happen to be sisters too! They had a lot of fun and we plan to have them over soon! On Saturday, we went and had brunch at The Egg and I. We had never been there before and we liked it a lot. 
After brunch, we hit the local pumpkin patch. I took the opportunity to take pictures of the kids at such a beautiful location. This farm is just gorgeous!

Everyone picked out pumpkins and I got some Indian corn for decoration. It was a very nice family weekend!

Old Teeth, New Teeth

Boo is now two front teeth less! It won't be long though, because the new teeth are poking through already!

Busy Days

Our days and busy and full! 4 days a week we school from 8:30-4:30 and then the girls do their enrichment all day on Wednesdays.  So far their favorite classes are lights, camera, action, Ameritowne, puppetry, and recorder.  During the home days they like Bible and reading best. Midge and Boo also really like their maybe this year (Saxon).  Buster enjoys calendar time and cutting and pasting anything.  He is very cooperative this year an learns with us all day long.

I use Wednesdays to catch up on housework and oddly look forward to the midweek cleaning.  I usually treat Buster to lunch out or a little candy! Here he was today riding in the cart, laughing as we got hailed on!
