Man Does Not Live on Bread Alone...but Joash Sure Tries

First of all, I do not want to say that Joash is a bad eater, or even really a picky eater. But, he knows what he likes and what he wants when it comes to food. He takes after his mother and loves his bread, dairy and fruit. Veggies and meat he really doesn't want anything to do with. ( I am certain at this point my parents are laughing because they have told me I was the same way when I was little.) He has now gotten too smart for the hiding food in applesauce trick, so we have had to get a little creative.

I made some carrot bread earlier this week, which he loves. That can count as a vegetable, right? Wilbert spread a bit of mashed sweet potatoes on his bread for lunch yesterday. Sounds gross, but Joash thought it was great! And then last night for supper Wilbert hid veggies in Joash's bread and he gobbled them all up. At least I know that all of the food he gets is good food for the most part. We continue to offer meat, but we don't push that as much as the vegetables.

I am sure by the time he is a teenager, he will be eating us out of house and home.

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.
