I know I've been really bad this month about posting pictures of the kids and writing.  It has honestly been a busy month for us!  Brandon is still finishing up an elementary school in Rexburg, and I've been busy keeping the kids happy and volunteering at the school.  We are getting anxious for Brandon to be back home full-time, which should hopefully happen in a few weeks.  He's actually flying in today for a long weekend with us.  For those of you who don't know, HAPPY BIRTHDAY to Brandon.  He turned 31 on Saturday.  It's crazy to think we are well into our 30's now!  He likes to rub it in that I was there before he was.  Age?   What's that??!!

The kids are doing really well.  Porter is loving first grade and is kinda sad to be leaving his friends in his class, but is excited to start a new school after Thanksgiving.  He continues to excel in his studies and just recently got his report card.  His lowest grade was a 98%!  We're hoping he continues this desire to study throughout his schooling years.  

Tess is doing well at home learning pre-school with me.  Her writing and drawing is really improving.  It's so fun to see them grow and change.  She has hit that age where all she wants to do is talk.  She is constantly talking about whatever from the time she gets up to the time she hits the pillow at night.  

Owen is becoming quite the little man and wants to be in complete control of his environment.  We've learned that he is quite the climber and mischievous one.  He is constantly getting into things he shouldn't and trying to pull things apart!  He still has two big loves in his life - and those are his blankie and his momma.  He hollers like crazy if I catch him washing his blanket, and he is jealous of anyone I snuggle with!

We're headed out to see the house on Thursday and will fill you in on the progress there later this week!

Have fun getting ready for Halloween!

Washing the Blankie.........

Our sweet Owen is so attached to his blanket that he even takes it outside at times. This morning, I couldn't take the dirty blanket anymore. I kindly coerced him to give it to me. Then I proceeded to put it in the washer. To my dismay, he saw what I was doing, and promptly had a cow. Being the awful parent that I am, instead of consoling him, I grabbed the camera! I did give him hugs and kisses when I turned the camera off.

Ridin' The Trike!

I caught Owen riding on the trike this morning, and had to take some video of it! I love how he runs over his blanket, realizes that he wants it, and then keeps going! Don't mind the pink came in the last pack I worries.....he only uses it at home!
