One of my favorite fall activities is riding in the combine with my Dad. We had a teacher work day in the middle of the week and Dad was harvesting so we headed out with some friends:)
Mari & Ana got the first ride
Noah wasn’t sure about going, I talked him into checking it out from the cab, he wanted to stay then (which I figured he would once he saw how cool it was)
They all wanted 2nd turns and Mari & Ana got to ride in the grain hauling truck with my Uncle Jerry (apparently they talked his ear off!)
It’s fun for me to share this with the kids, and I love that they love it too. Anyone who wants to come is welcome:)
We finally got our new Scrabble game out from last Christmas (2011), it has pegs to hold the tiles in place:)
From my dear friend Sally, we play a family version where you use the Scrabble dictionary and learn new words while we’re playing, it’s perfect for our kids.
And, because I’m fast-paced and impatient, we just play whenever we want and just let the next player(s) know when it’s their turn (takes at least a week, you can see why we were excited to have the tile locking version!)
Anyway, the team of Marian & Ezra beat me and the team of Kelly & Tobin. One of their last words was zona (any encircling or beltlike structure) for 39 points.
