I’ve been a bad blogger this fall, I know that. However, I’ve been a great small business owner and a great (but definitely not even close to perfect) mom! Those two take the priority, and this time of year that means the blog and my personal pictures get pushed aside.
Guess what? I’m caught up on my Faces You Love editing right now, and will be for the next 36 hours or so! Wooo!! I was excited to go through personal pictures tonight…. from September! Yes, you read that right – I haven’t even touched personal pictures since September. Ouch.
So here, in a fun little picture-palooza, is what we were up to in September and October!
Miss Lily started attending a Child’s Day Out program at the same preschool the boys went to. She’s loving school, and I think she sometimes wishes she went more often than 1 day a week!
At the end of September (a very warm day in September, as you can see from Lily’s attire), I dragged Nick along for one of my mom’s group events! Who can say no to the Pumpkin Patch, especially when he gets to go with his two favorite girls? 😉
Lily and I also ventured to a fire station with our Parents As Teachers group! She was a brave girl, and wanted to practice Stop, Drop & Roll in front of the entire group, loved sitting in the truck, and even more loved meeting Sparky the Firedog! She’s such a sucker for giant “characters” 😉
The very next day, while Lily was at school, I attended a field trip with Jackson…. to another fire station! And do you see that “look” he’s giving me from the truck? The “I’m going to look like I’m not having fun, and I’m definitely not making eye-contact with my mom over there” look? Yep, pretty much what I experienced the first hour of the field trip. The kid would not even look at me! He was all business with line basics, not talking, etc. Such a model student, but I finally said “dude! It’s ok to smile and talk to me while I’m here!”.
The boys also have ventured into their first organized sports experience, with Pee Wee soccer! They’re LOVING it!
And this… well, this just makes me laugh! Obviously from our pumpkin carving night 🙂
And Halloween! We had two boys want to re-wear the very same costumes from last year. SCORE! Jackson went as a mechanic again, Ty as a police officer, and Chase branched out and decided he wanted to be a Sonic Car Hop. Lily, well we just let her go crazy with dress up clothes 🙂 Then there’s my sister the lobster and my husband dressed as my dad!
