A little camp out a few weeks back at the woods on the Marrs farm. It turned out to be a pretty nice night despite threats of rain! Henry’s buddy, Nathan, and his dad joined us. He’s such a sweet boy and they had so much fun. Caught a lot of toads too. Roasted some hot dogs. Lots of little adventuring, tent building, exploring and just silly kids.
The Newlyweds! We went to visit the Munin Family’s beachfront home in Michigan City recently and although it was cold we had a lot of fun playing on the beach. It was hard to keep the kids out of the water. They didn’t seem to care that it was a little to chilly for swimming… until they got really wet in the little pools of water on the beach. Not a bad problem to have, really.
Not long ago Henry and Nora helped to decorate this cake that was pre-frosted with white frosting. They were pretty excited when we told them it was all for them. But then we explained that the color inside of the cake would indicate if the new baby on the way would be: pink for a girl or blue for a boy!
As you can see they are very excited to be welcoming a baby sister in December of this year!
Henry began his year of four-year-old preschool today. Everyone was so excited this morning. He did such a great job getting ready and starting his day. Drop off was great and his teachers seem so wonderful. New year, new teachers, new routines, new friends… so much to look forward to! Nora will begin two-year-old jr. preschool on Friday. She was so proud to get her very own backpack this year and meet her teacher last week. Fingers crossed that we won’t have any separation issues. I know she will love it… and most likely will end up begging to go every day instead of Fridays only.
