21 Months

M(om): Hi Joash! I haven't seem much of you this week, since I have been busy at VBS and you have been spending your mornings at the farm. How are you doing?

J(oash): I am doing great Mom! I really like to go to Opa's house, but I am still a bit sad when you leave. But, we have lots of fun

M: I am glad Joash. What can you do now that you are 21 months?

J:Well, I can say even more words and I like to string two word phrases together. Today I said, "Joash nap" at nap time, which really seem to surprise you, mom.
 M: It was surprising. Not everyone goes down for a nap so well. Anything else?

J: I also like to repeat things that people say to me. I learn so many new words this way and people always seem to smile when I do it.

M: That is because it is so nice to hear you say such nice things. What do you like to play with now?
The concentration face.

 J: I still really like my books, tractors and trucks. I have a new loader. My new favorite thing to do is hook them all together. Thanks for helping me do this, Mom. I also like to play in the sand. I also like to pretend that different things are eating, like my farmer or my animals.
M: Any other new skills?

J: I am getting better at going up stairs. Now if there is a nice railing along the side, I can grab on the banister and walk up the stairs, just like you and Dad. It is fun to do that!

M: And it is fun to watch you do that! I will let you get back to your tractor train. Bye Joash!

J: Bye-bye!

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.
