Butterfly migration

Austin was home this morning preparing for an out of town trip. He and the children discovered Monarch Butterfly Migration happening right over our back yard. We counted 130 butterflies before we gave up counting!

Tia Becky visit

We had a little visit with Tia Becky on Saturday since she was in town for the game. She managed to squeeze in some Sebastian snuggles!

Look alikes

We pulled Allia's baby album out yesterday to compare photos of her with Sebastian. They are definitely look alikes!

Piano Recital

The girls had their fall piano recital today. In addition to their piano pieces, the performed in a special introductory piece in which their teacher played "Do You Want to Build a Snowman" from the Frozen Movie, and they played some of the parts. It was fun to prepare for and to watch them perform! They both made a few mistakes on their piano pieces but recovered nicely!

More Soccer

Stephen was bemoaning the fact that Manah usually brings clothes (instead of toys) last week when we were on our way home from Hot Shots soccer to meet them, as they had just arrived at the house. Much to his surprise, Manah had this Nike outfit for him that he loved! I guess clothes can occasionally be exciting for boys too. The girls are always happy with clothes, of course. He looked extra sporty out there today in his new outfit and liked the fact that the Nike swoosh on his clothes matched the ones on his shin guards!

National Night Out

We sort of went to national night out Tuesday. I kept the three sick ones in the car and watched the three well ones venture off to have fun at face painting, games, bounce houses, train ride, etc. Then, when nobody was near, we ventured over to get sno cones and back to the car. Daddy came and gathered food for us, and we ate a picnic in the grass by the car! It actually worked out pretty well, except that Gloria was among the sick ones and really wanted to go play games and jump! Sebastian and Anastasia were mostly content to hang with me...the sno cones helped, of course!
