I’m a day late, but what else is new? We’ve been busy over here crossing things off of our fall bucket list. Last week Tracey came up to spend the day with Beck and me. We hit Hobby Lobby, Chik-fil-A, loaded up on fairytale pumpkins from Trader Joe’s and then ended our day at the farm (where i locked my keys in my car). I LOVE when she comes up to spend the day with us!!
This weekend we took Lucy and Beckett apple picking. We usually fill up one bag and then head back the following weekend. It’s one of our favorite things to do in the fall so we go multiple times a season.
So many fun things coming up over the next few weekends including Beckett’s 4th Birthday!! We are busy planning a super fun Toy Story party!! Can’t wait to celebrate our boy! Or boys!! It’s Jon’s Birthday this week!!
The house is pretty quiet right now. Beckett is sitting in the living room setting up his cars and tracks. Jon and the girls are all off at school and work and I’m really enjoying the quiet time with Beck. We started working on a little homeschooling here and there. He’s still only 3 so I’m not pushing anything. He really does enjoy it though!
As much as I love the quiet and the routine (I really do), I’m already missing the noise of the summer with everyone around.
Some pictures from our last weeks of summer
One of Emma’s friends got married a couple of weeks ago and she had to wear the traditional clothing to the ceremony.
My dad took Lucy and Colton fishing the day before school started. I HAD to drive by and snap a picture. Outings like this are so special and I know this picture will mean so much to her when she’s my age.
I spent a lot of time with the girls while Jon was on a work trip
I love babies and toddlers so much but there is something so amazing about grownup kids too! They really are the best of friends and I am so thankful for that! This particular night we all stayed up late talking, telling stories and laughing until our sides hurt.
This boy LOVES being outside!
Before we knew it we were shipping Megan back to Boston
She is loving her new living situation and her new roommates!
I’m so glad!! It makes leaving her there so much easier!
Speaking of Boston, Jon and I went to the Sox game the other night. One of my biggest fears has always been getting hit with a foul ball. We always sit around 3rd base so I pay close attention to the left hand batters. I’m not sure why I wasn’t looking during this play but before I knew it my leg was stinging and Jon was telling me to watch out. In that exact order. LOL Thanks, Jon!!
I am honestly so glad that it hit my leg and not the guy in front of me (who was glued to his phone the entire game). I’m not sure how it missed his head and hit me in the thigh. Ha! I’m assuming that since I got hit the other night it won’t happen again. EVER. Right??
Ouch!! At least I have a funny story to tell. Like how everyone around us (we were in a luxury box) seemed so concerned but Jon told them I was just grazed. Ha! I knew there was a reason why I disliked the Yankees so much!!
