Our Latest Pass Time

We have recently gotten hooked our new pass time - Geo Caching. It is cheap, fun and you can do it almost any where. All you need to do is go on, find a cache you want to find and get the coordinates of where it is. We don't have a GPS yet, so we just use our map skills and Google maps with satellite view to find our caches. A cache can be anything from a pretty large container full of different items to a small micro cache that has a magnet on it and a tiny piece of paper rolled up inside for the log. Once you get stated, it is amazing how many there are all around you. So it is sort of like going on a treasure hunt and after you have looked for a while, it is so rewarding to have found it.

Here are some pictures from our latest Geo-caching adventure that we went on yesterday. We had three on our list, but only found two due to time, especially since the second one took us forever to find.
Can you spot the cache?

You had to pull a long, dead branch that was standing up right out of a tree and there is was, on the end.

Here is the first one we found. This one was pretty easy.
We hope to keep this up because there are tons of caches on the Island and all over. And it is something that is fun and easy and very family friendly.

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.
