"I am only one, but I am one. I cannot do everything, but I can do something. And because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do the something that I can do. What I can do, I should do. And what I should do, by the grace of God, I will do." -Edward Everett Hale

22 Months

He's 22 months old and suddenly Momma's singing is unbearable. 

But he only coves one ear. 

And he laughs about it. 

I think he's trying to be funny...


At least that's what I hope.

Safety City Success

A couple of months ago Piper took a field trip to Safety City. She and her classmates got the chance to drive little cars around a miniature Lexington. There was even a big blue building!

At this time she found out that Safety City would be hosting a trick-or-treat event the weekend before Halloween. Of course she just had to go!

Well, we weren't able to make it after all. But in researching the event, I found out about a coloring contest. And do I ever know some kids who like to color. 

The first victory came when Levi entered the contest. And the second came with the call saying we had a winner...


She made the jack-o-lantern and cat her own with an original background. For all her hard work, Piper took home a goodie bag and a bicycle helmet. 

The other kids got consolation prizes of coloring books and mini-pumpkins. I said these would be great for trick-or-treating next year...


Easton wasn't too crazy about that idea.

Trick-or-Treat 2016

This Halloween, we had a trick-or-treat rookie in the family...


As for the rest of the crew...


They've been around the block a time or two...


But this year, it was a brand new neighborhood...


And for these new kids on the block, 


It couldn't have been any better.

Costume Countdown

The days leading up to Halloween offered plenty of opportunities for trying out those costumes. 

Leonardo made his appearance at music class...


Michelangelo and Superman were spotted at the library...


And Hello Kitty partied it up at Wild Thyme...


And believe it or not, no one requested a last minute change of costume.

Leafapalooza

A yard-full of leaves and a warm fall has made for all kinds of backyard fun...


But all good things must come to an end...


And Declan had the right idea.

First Field Trip

He's been hearing about these things for years. Now it's finally Levi's turn for a field trip...


After picking the perfect pumpkin, it was time for kindergarten chaos...


And Boyd Orchards didn't disappoint.

Orchard Outing

With only one pumpkin patch field trip on the calendar this year, a family outing was definitely in order...


So we loaded up and headed to our favorite, Evan's Orchard...


We found all of the familiar activities...


And even a few new things...


Declan was all in this year...


Which may have also included throwing a little corn. 

Okay, a lot of corn. But at least he wasn't eating it this time.
