Vacation Part 3 - Far Away Friends

After a few days in Michigan, we headed out to Minnesota and Iowa to see some of our friends. We stayed with our best friends in Minnesota and had a great time.

On Saturday, we had lunch with the Buskers and I got to see my favorite five year old again. Both he and his sister thought Joash was really cool and he kept making faces at Joash and doing other things to get Joash to smile. It was great to see them again and get caught up on their lives and what was happening at school. Saturday evening one of Wilbert's roommates from college was married, so we saw many people that we haven't seen in a long time. Alas, I did not take any pictures since I was busy with a little boy. But the wedding was very nice and it was good to see so many people again.

Sunday we went to our old church in Edgerton and it was so much fun to see everyone. We were able to talk to just about everyone we wanted too, expect for one couple who was away for the weekend. There were four of us who were pregnant and all due around the same time at our church. We all had boys, and it was interesting to compare the boys. We stayed inside for the rest of Sunday because it was HOT outside. I know I have complained about the Island weather being cold, but I was so thankful for air conditioning. If you went outside your eyelids started to sweat. I am now enjoying the nice Island summer again with my windows open.

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.
