20 Months

 M(om): Hello my 20 month old boy! How are you today?

J(oash): I am pretty good mom. There sure is a lot of excitement and things happening aren't there?

M: Yes there is Joash. We have been busy with your Tante Reina's prom and graduation and now we are busy getting ready for the weddings this summer. Plus the farm and the garden need to be taken care of. But, what have you been up to?

J: I have been busy too learning new words and how to do different things, like ride nicely in a wagon for the wedding.
 M: You have an important role in the wedding and I know that you will do great. What things do you say now?

J: Oh all sorts of things. I know lots of words like "milk truck," "grape" and "calf." I sometimes can put to words together and say things like "more juice" at snack time or "other baby" when playing with the dolls.

M: It is fun to hear you talk. What else is new?

J: I am pretty good at running and I like to go up and down the steps just holding on to your hand. I also really like to pickup rocks.
J: Oh and I like it when you help me do somersaults.

M: I know. You always look a little silly when you get ready to do one.  Anything else you would people to know?

J: I can make matches with the animals on my fridge farm. My favorite is the pig and the sheep.
M: What other things do you like to do?

J: I like to ride in the stroller, wagon or on the tractor. I also like to go for bike rides with Oma. And I like to visit the farm. Today we went to watch the cows getting their hoofs trimmed. It was very interesting. I also really like blowing bubbles.

M: Well, we better enjoy the rest of this nice day. It looks like it might be a rainy week.

J: Okay!

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.
