Went on a fall hike on family fun day with a couple extra friends:)
Tobin was posing for pictures the whole time
Ezra & friend were catching balls from Kelly the whole time
I love fall:)
Marian’s class has several field trips planned, the first one was 90 minutes away at a German village, I really didn’t want to go but Becky talked me into, and we ended up being able to drive together-so it worked out great.
We learned how to make our own pretzels, ate a german lunch, and got to go shopping in the candy village. It was nice to spend some time with just Mari.
You’ve got to love hair nets!
Every year, the day after Halloween, the kids “sort” their candy
This year, they even made a graph
They then take turns choosing their own candy-20 pieces which they can eat whenever they want so I don’t have to listen to “can I have some candy?” They have control, and they learn something about (or don’t learn) about saving. As this is written at the beginning of January, I believe Marian still has some, I think Ezra finished his recently (which he shared with Tobin), and Tobin’s was gone within a week:)
And later in the week, we collected extra candy from other families and took it to a dentist office where they are shipped to troops in the Middle East, God bless these men & women and their families for their service!
