We had a full week of school last week. I’m glad the kids are in school but it puts a crimp in our our social calendar! I think a four day school week would be perfect!
I had a parent session with Lindy and her teacher on last Monday and for the first time she did a great job at her parent session. She rocked all her speech babble, even the new ones her teacher made up. Then she did awesome at picking three critical elements. Something we’ve worked on for SOOOO long and she was never consistent at it. It seems like it might be starting to click! Yay!!
Wednesday morning Will had speech therapy and Wednesday afternoon we had music class. The kids got rain makers that they enjoyed making noise with this week. We have to make our own rain makers this week for class.
My parents drove down Thursday afternoon and rolled in around 1am that morning. They greeted the kids when they woke up Friday morning. Unfortunately it was a school day so we got up and around as normal. My mom and I took Lindy to school and Will to speech and then we came home for a bit. We loaded back up to go pick Lindy up from school and went out for lunch. Drew headed out of town for the weekend and the kids and I played with Nana and Papa all weekend. After naptime on Friday we headed out to dinner and enjoyed a pumpkin Krispy Kreme doughnut. Yummy!
Saturday was my Mom’s birthday! Happy birthday Mom! We were so excited we got to help you celebrate. We headed out for lunch and then we went to Patterson Farms to the pumpkin patch. I was shocked at how many people were at this farm! We looked at and fed some goats first and then got in a wagon to go on a little ride to the pumpkins. It still wasn’t a true pumpkin patch as the pumpkins were all brought to one place and not out in the patch on vines. But it was still neat. You could stay out in the little field as long as you wanted and catch a wagon whenever you wanted to head back. We got the kids pumpkins and headed back. Then they had a big play area for the kids that we spent awhile in. They had some playground equipment and the most fun thing was the corn pits. It was a big sandbox but it was filled with corn. Will jumped in and loved it from the start but Lindy did not like it at first. She hated it until I started playing with it. She ended up LOVING it! They had so much fun! We finally left the pumpkin patch and drove around the area and headed for dinner to celebrate Nana’s birthday. The kids were so wired the whole way home. Will was seriously screaming “Happy Birthday” at my mom. We got home and had some birthday cake and put those crazy kids to bed!
My parents left today and Drew got back home this afternoon. It was SOO nice having the company and help while Drew was gone. It worked out so well that it was my mom’s birthday and we got to celebrate with her. Once Drew got home we headed outside to enjoy the beautiful weather.
Back to the school week bright and early tomorrow morning!
We tried some painting outside one day. Will found a new game of running through the swings and hitting them with his golf clubs. The kids LOVE going down the hill in the little red wagon in our backyard. Will made a pumpkin crown in school this week. Playtime with Daddy! The kids also love the pillows on the couch. They love to hide under them. Covering Daddy and then laying on him. Checking out the Halloween decorations. Thursday afternoon we went to the park. It was really fun until Will fell and skinned his knee and elbow and then had a little poop accident in his britches. Other than that it was a blast! A little static on the slides! Snuggling with Nana after his nap. Cute Halloween kids. Happy Birthday Nana! Helping her open her presents. Waiting in line for the wagon out to the pumpkins. Riding out to the pumpkins. Pumpkins! Lindy taking a rest on a pumpkin! Hugging a pumpkin! Our short kids! I think Lindy is taller than what it looks like, her knees are bent. Trying to get Lindy to stand still. Didn’t happen. Corn pit! Riding high! They were SO wired! Happy Birthday Nana! Reading the kids their night-night books.
Wow, that’s a lot of pictures. But that was only 52 of the 363 I took last week. Just be glad I didn’t put all 363 on here!
