Oblivious to the fact that something is 'reading along'.

The weather is definitely changing....
It's getting colder...
The days are getting shorter...

October 20

'Bessie', as we've named her, seems to be the luckiest cow in the neighborhood.
The entire pasture to herself, what more could she want?
She's always quite interested in us when we go past,
sometimes eating a handful of clover that's offered,
sometimes following us all way way along the fenceline,
sometimes just listening to our chatter as we go past.

October 19

Late afternoon walks/bike rides are the BEST...

October 18

Another weekend, another scout event...

I did a double take when I looked out the kitchen window
to see this guy sitting on the railing 10ft away...
scoping out my bird feeder for a tasty lunch.

Racing through mud puddles is the BEST :)

October 7

The school read-a-thon is in full swing again.
Books, books, books...

Dustin made a deal with Reuben.
He would read Reuben LOTS of books if they would share the Stuffed Snake prize.
And read they did....until Dustin realized he had to read 90 books to Reuben.

Must have been a very exciting book...
toes all curled ;)

October 6

Blake's souvenir...
Looks a lot less threatening in a 'pee jar' than up his nose.
So much for our quiet home day.
After our doctor's unsuccessful attempts at dislodging the bead,
it was off to the hospital ER.
So thankful for the awesome service we got.
They were so calm with him that he didn't even cry,
even though the procedure really 'sucked'.
