The past week has been very full so rather than just tell you, I thought I'd show you as well. October tends to be our crazy month with two birthdays, the fun fall season and Halloween. This year has been no exception. One of our favorite tradition is hitting the pumpkin patch, usually the same weekend as Noah's birthday. Lydia's getting old enough to really get into it as well. And no doubt about it, they love the bouncing structure.
A rare "sibling love" moment as he helped her down the slide
Wow, looks like it wasn't so rare that day
Searching for her perfect pumpkin
She's two so she couldn't go for the round one near the end that Mommy picked out
She had to find her own
Being in charge as always...
He insisted that he could do it himself
That same week, on Noah's birthday, I help chaperone a field trip to the local Convention Center. Lydia was allowed to come along as well and did a great job.

Mommy had a great time too
This past weekend, we were in Tahoe, so we went to a local park for the Salmon Spawning. I love having the flexibility to take a few days and homeschool and this was a perfect opportunity. I couldn't believe how much the kids were into it.
Pointing out the crazy bird we saw
Both fascinated by the salmon swimming up stream
She insisted that Mommy read her EVERY sign
By the end, she wanted to read them to me.
Our real purpose for going to Tahoe was my sister in law's wedding. My husband performed the ceremony and the kids were the ring bearer and flower girl. Noah took his job very seriously.
Another family photo, Mom?
We'll be good
So that's a world wind tour through the past week or so in our house. Actually looking forward to a week of doing "house stuff."
