Copy Cat

Today after lunch, Joash decided that he wanted to take a pretend nap with Dad before his real nap. Wilbert was more than happy to pretend with Joash. He even introduced Joash to the fine art of fake snoring. Soon, Joash would lay his head on his bunny and proceed to snore. It is was really cute, and reminded me of all the other ways Joash copies us already.

For example, the other day we were reading devotions after supper. Wilbert is a finger-licking page turner. After devotions, Joash wanted to look at the Bible a bit more. He then licked a few fingers on one hand and turned the page in the Bible. He used the hand he did not lick to turn the page, but it was still really funny.

Joash has decided he likes to brush his teeth now. He likes to try and do it himself, and his favorite part is rinsing off his toothbrush in the sink. He rinses the brush and then taps it a few times on the edge of the sink. I know he learned that from me, because we often brush our teeth together.

Wilbert has a smart phone and it plays a certain sound when we get an e-mail. So, often we hear the sound and usually one of us will say "E-mail" out loud. Yesterday we got an e-mail during supper and we both swear Joash said, "E-mail" as plain as day. That was a little scary.

As I think about it, there are a few things that Joash does I should copy. He says a very enthusiastic "Amen" when we pray. We we say, "Let's do devotions," he get really excited and points to the Bible. These little examples of child-like faith are a living lesson for me.

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.
