Things You Find Only in Edgerton

Since it is one week from our departure, I thought it would be only fitting to mention some of the unique things about this little community that I have grown to love. So, only in Edgerton (and the nearby surrounding area) do you:

  • have a man pass you on his motorcycle blaring the piano and organ church music on his radio.
  • play mini-golf for free that tell you about the history of the community. Not a lot of history. It was only seven holes long and the las two didn't even have sign designating what part of the history the hole represents.
  • does the news that you are leaving spread faster than you find humanly possible.
  • have your groceries delivered to your car while you are still paying, without them even asking which car is yours.
  • get your favorite pizza put on the buffet every time you got in for a meal.
  • have more offers to help load up your trailer when you move than stuff you actually have to move.

There are lots more things, but I don't want to bore you. I will miss this little community, but I am excited to become a part of the new one too.

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.
