Ben Loves Music

Ben has always loved music. Unlike my other children, he has also always loved to dance. He is quickly learning how to use Alexa, which is a little scary. I’m not sure what music he came up with, but he happily danced his way through lunch.

Soccer Sunday

Kaitlyn’s soccer today was hilarious to photograph. It was 3% dance, 2% soccer, and 95% giggles. Her coaches are saints. Thank goodness for having a best friend on the team. I don’t think I saw Kaitlyn even near the ball once, but she had the best hour of her week!

Bookends

Tonight my oldest put my youngest to bed. It’s pretty rare for Alex to take care of Ben. Sometimes he will play with him, but he rarely “takes care of him.” It was adorable to watch him change him, read to him, and put him to bed.

School Volunteer

In a shocking twist, I was actually able to volunteer in Teague’s class today. Parent volunteers were needed for their pumpkin lab. It was fun to see Teague with all of his friends and classmates. Performing experiments on a pumpkin and then carving it in the end wasn’t too bad either!

Halloween With Wind And Rain

It was a doozy of a Halloween. It wasn’t just a dreary day, but a stormy, day with lots of rain. The rain let up enough in the early evening that we took Kaitlyn and Ben up to the Common for some trick or treating (but that was only for children under the age of 10). My photographer friend has a studio on the Common and was “treating” with photos of kids in costumes. Her shots were adorable. Then we ran the two littlest kids to the Community Center for some indoor trick or treating.

I got Ben and Kaitlyn into their pajamas and snuggled in with a movie. They were so happy to answer the door and hand out candy while Wade took the big boys out trick or treating door to door. It was a win-win for most of us (maybe not for Wade). When the big boys got home, they did some candy trading with Kaitlyn and then it was off to bed to warm up.

“With The Right Words, You Can Change The World”

Teague informed me he had to dress up like a character from Charlotte’s Web today. I think we did a pretty good job – taking into consideration what my child was willing to wear.

Backyard Fun

Throw a couple of kids in the backyard with a dog and they have fun for hours. The key is adding a new kid. If they are all siblings then it sometimes works and sometimes doesn’t. We had a friend stop by to drop something off and her daughter ended up staying to play for quite a while. The kids were just having a blast playing outside with Pepper. Sometimes it’s so easy.
