What I Have Been Busy With

Sorry for taking so long to get back to blogging. But it has been busy here. I have been busy healing. It is going really well. I am in very little pain and rarely notice that I have had surgery. I am still not as energetic as I was before the operation, but each day is getting better.
 I have been busy taking care of this little guy, too. He is on the move in his own style that is a cross between an army crawl and normal crawling. But he can get to where he wants to go and he is enjoying his new found freedom. He has also figured out how to sit back up after crawling, so that makes like a lot easier for Mom. I no longer have to rescue him from his tummy.
It is also Old Home Week on the Island, which is as close a fair as you get here. Yesterday was the parade, which was quite good. It was a nice warm day, and I was certainly glad that I was not marching in the parade.  It is sort of weird watching a parade that doesn't have any high school marching bands in it. There are a few community bands and several bagpipe and drum bands. It was a good parade, just different then what I am used to. We also took in the Exhibitions and saw all of the 4-H displays and animals. It will be really fun to take Joash there when he is a bit older. He slept through most of that part. Next year already, he will probably think the animals are pretty cool.

I have been busy with a few other things to, but I tell you about those next week.

L.M Montgomery's Beginning and End

My birthday present to myself this year was to join the Modern Mrs. Darcy Book Club. It is an online book club and I am so excited to be a part of it. I haven't been in book club in a long time, mostly because all of the invitations I get usually end with, "and at our meetings, we usually don't talk about the book very much, so it doesn't matter if you read it or not." What is the point of a book club if you are not actually going to talk about the book? So, anyway, I am excited to be a part of a community of people who read as much as I do and like to talk about what they read.
I was even more excited when I learned that the pick for November was going to be Emily of New Moon. And since I have lived on PEI for almost 7 years and had yet to visit L. M. Montgomery's Birthplace, I figured it was high time. So the kids and I hopped in the van this afternoon and drove through some lovely countryside to New London, PEI.

Coming Home from Michigan

Following the Truck Parade, we spent a bit of time at a park near Nick and Dawn's house. And then off to airport. 
We were nicely on time. Check-in went fine, but a little longer because of Gideon not being connected to our family. Security was a breeze and we were soon on our way and in Detroit. We easily found our gate in Detroit, had a 10 minute delay for boarding, but soon enough we were on the plane.
And that it when the bottom fell out. 
While on the plane, the pilots revived notice that Toronto was shut down due to weather. We waited about 20-30 minutes on the plane. They gave us snacks. Then they had us get off the plane and wait in the terminal. Every 30 minutes or so we would be updated that we were still delayed. And we were watching dark clouds and lightening roll into the area surround Detroit, too. Soon, the Detroit airport was shut down too. They brought out snacks and drinks a few different times, but finally around 10 pm (so over 5 hours of being delayed in the a…

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.
