Very Supportive

Ryan could not be happier to support breast cancer awareness!  He was so into wearing the pink socks!  I guess they go with the shoelaces…



















Image00111 My girlfriend picked me up on Friday afternoon and we headed to the mountains for a retreat.  I swear that is the same comforter I used 30 years ago at jr. high camp.  Really, we are going to have to upgrade next year.  But, we had a great time together and we both enjoyed the speaker.

It’s Shoebox Time Again

 The kids helped get the shoebox season off to a great start at church!

Pumpkin Patch

 Who knew it would be about 100 degrees in October?  Obviously it wasn’t me when we put together the field trip to the pumpkin patch!  Oh man was it hot out there!  Fun was had by all nonetheless.  And I get to check off pumpkin patch!  We went here five years ago.  I can only handle these giant pumpkin places about every…five years!  Next time Ryan will be 14!  Wow, that’s weird.  I’m sure he’ll be all for a trip to the patch!




This is the pumpkin I picked for Megan.  Of course you know she put it back because she had to pick her own and it was about three times the size!

Image00176 We love that the Giants are perfect pumpkin patch attire.  It was a great day: pumpkin patch, a visit from a friend who recently moved, Giants WON and Dodgers LOST!  Perfect!

I Didn’t Expect That!

Image00003 Look who is just beginning to show a tiny bit of interest in mothering!  I had to put the dolls away for awhile (for their safety) last year.  There has been no flinging by the ears so far this time around…


Image00010 You know, I never really imagined that one day my kids would play restaurant and…order tofu.

Here we go again

Megan had been asking to play soccer again for months.  I told her she had  to wait because there was a little too much laying on the ground-not participating last time.  So this week we headed back onto the field.

 Image00001 Yep, out of bounds…


Image00002 She was so excited to play and listened very well to the coach.  I wish I had my camera out in time to catch her running across the field with the ball…in her hands.  She did leave the field a few times during play.  She said she needed to talk to me.  She went back happily though and it was a successful class.  I think it will be fun for her.  She wants to take ballet next time.  I mean, can you even wait for the pictures?




Image00006 Isn’t she looking older?  Only a few weeks until she turns 4.






Ryan has hand, foot, and mouth…(and ears, knees…)  It has been pretty mild, no fever, but he stayed home today and we told his coach he can’t play on Saturday.  He looked a little teary when the doctor said he shouldn’t play, but he had a great attitude.  The doctor gave us some guidelines for when he should be around other kids.  Ryan’s coach reminded us he still has two more days! : )
