We have lots of plans for this fall including a trip to the State Fair, the pumpkin patch for play and pumpkin picking, Halloween parties (a LOT of them!), trick-or-treating, and LOTS of yard work.
Here's a little round-up of what we have been doing for the last few months.
In July Katie started first grade!
She loves her new teacher and is doing fantastically in school after a slightly bumpy first month. Her reading is off the charts awesome and she has started reading chapter books like the Magic Tree House and the A-Z Mysteries all by herself. We even had a Mother/Daughter reading day one afternoon. We sat on the screen porch together some weekend afternoon in July or August and each sat in a chair reading a book. It warmed my book loving Mommy heart!
Christian has been learning and developing as all little ones do. His current desire is to learn to eat with a spoon.
Fortunately, Katie is a little more practiced!
Christian is movin' and groovin'! He is crawling and cruising, pulling up and climbing, but still not walking. This photo, taken in September, was taken just after I turned around found Christian, totally full of himself, standing in the middle of the coffee table. I wasn't fast enough to snap a picture of him standing but got this one right after he plopped down.
