Golly jeepers! Has it really been over a month since my last post? I am failing in epic proportions these days… Time marches on, yet motivation to get on the computer after a full day is just about the last priority on my list. No worries yet, I still love having the blog and won't be ridding us of it anytime soon! How else can I keep my peeps across the country updated of our latest and greatest (and not-so-greatest?!) Here's a re-cap of the fun we had in late Sept/October:
|And the girls go along for the ride. It's cute to see these two begin to emerge as friends--that's if one isn't stealing something away from the other. They speak the same peaceful girl language and will most likely become best frenemies.
|Did I mention she's a ham? Oh Lordy, she kills me!
|Here is another fun sibling game in the works--lightsaber LIMBO! J is not making the cut in this shot.
|To see the games they come up with… I love it. Fun is always to be had in G-Ville!
|October was not without a pretty fall Sunday trip to the pumpkin patch.
|MG and I were in pursuit of the perfect pumpkin.
|Here's Daddy and his sweet girl
|And another nice one of Daddy and the middles
|We got this fun family pic--notice anyone missing? M was at his Cub Scout campout with Papa. We were sad to be without him and definitely felt his absence. 4 is not nearly as flavorful as our 5!
|The next week the boys participated in their annual Golden Shoe Competition in gym class. They run for 6 minutes and try to log as many laps as possible. Here was M with some buddies.
|He ran well and achieved 4.75 laps. I was impressed that he never stopped and just kept up his steady pace even when others were getting tired. Mama and little sisters were cheerleaders extraordinaire!
|Later that week we had the chance to root on T in his class' race.
|T was determined...
|and victorious! He beat his personal best with 5.6 laps. It was a great effort and he was so relieved to be done. Definitely a chip off the old block of nerves here!!
|The next week was spent in preparation for Halloween. The kids all designed their pumpkins...
|but left the gooey grunt work to mama. Yuck! I seem to always get stuck with the cutting. Next year, it's Daddy's turn!! ;)
|My littlest lover has a hankering for sweets. Not surprising in the slightest!
|So does her big sis!
|And with that, we wrap up a wonderful October 2013.
Blessings to you,
