Balance

I got the kids a balance bike on Walmart.com a few weeks ago because I was curious.  I saw a segment on Fox and Friends with some kids riding them and I was impressed that they could learn to ride a bike so easily.  My co-teacher said her three grandsons used them and learn to ride quickly.  I have seen these bikes a lot on Zulily and thought "a bike with no pedals... that's dumb".  My Mom is getting the kids real bikes for Christmas and so I decided what the hay, this will give them a few months to learn the balance.

I have to say that I am impressed after all.  The Fred Flintstone approach has really helped Drew learn to balance.  Please excuse my man voice, toys, and squeeze yogurt on the drive way.

Pumpkins

I down right ripped all these pictures off of Dina's blog.  She is a good mom and remembers her camera.  We went to the Pumpkin Patch off of Hall Johnson after Sonshine on Thursday.  We have gone there every year with the kids.  This year we tried the corn maze and it was HARD plus Charis and I needed to use the facilities, so I cheated and asked for a hint of how to get out.  Charis and I were never so happy to see a port-o-potty.  

I love fall!  I love cooler weather (not cold, I hate cold), pumpkins, pumpkin spiced lattes, comfy clothes, and playing outside.

JOY



THIS makes me so happy!  I love these two so much and the joy they bring.  I love that they want to run and play in the rain.  I apologize for their lack of clothing.  They did have pants on but those were shed right away... and then they took more off and were covered in mud from head to toe.
