A Day Out

When we moved here, we made a list of things that we would like to see and do in the area. Now that we are getting ready to leave, we decided we should maybe do some of those things on the list. I just looked at our list yesterday and was surprised by how many things we actually have done. And I could cross off one more because on Saturday we went to the Jeffers Petroglyphs. These are carvings that the Native Americans made in an out cropping of rock over thousands of years. There are over 2000 carvings.

A Thunderbird. They are also restoring the prairie land, so we learned about lots of plants and things.

We also visited two county parks and found some beautiful hidden waterfalls on the prairie. You would never expect these to be here as you drive up to the parks. They seem to pop out of no where.

We had a lovely day out and enjoyed learning about history and seeing a bit of the beauty of creation.

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

A Farm Boy Already

I don't fully understand how this happens, but Gideon already loves the tractor. If he is in the kitchen or the living room and he hears the sound of the tractor, he crawls to the closest window and has a look outside. When he sees it, he often starts drumming on the window sill, so excited. He repeats a little "T" sound, like he is trying to say tractor. He hasn't actually gone for a ride in the tractor, yet. But I think he will be pretty excited to that some day soon.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
