Life Around Here

Sorry to everyone who has been dissapointed with my lack of posts lately. It has been a bit busy lately. We have been busy moving things around, getting ready for the baby. Lots of meeting and different things have been taking place. I have been doing a bit of extra cooking trying to get some freezer meals and things in the freezer to have on hand for when the baby arrives. And I have hit the third-trimester tired stage, so I have been enjoying a few more naps lately, which has been very nice.

Joash has been busy too. He helped his dad tune the piano.
 He has also been busy fixing things. He likes to use his hammer.
I was trying to get a picture of him and his hammer, so I told him to hold his hammer still. And this is what I got.
It makes me laugh and I hope it brings a smile to your face too.

Another story that makes me laugh every time I think about it. We have been working on getting Joash to not hit people. So, one day, after a warning to not hit, Joash was showing me how he could swing his arms around and not hit anything. He swung his arms around with such force, that he swung himself right off his feet and landed on his stomach. It caught him by surprise and he didn't know whether to laugh or cry. I was laughing really hard, so he started laughing too. It was just like something you would see on America's Funniest Home Videos.

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.
