Love My Kids

Well, life is settling back down and that is a good thing. This week has been awesome to just be home, be a family and take some time to do some things that I enjoy. As I look back on this week, I can only smile as my kids bring me so much joy. How can you not smile at a face like this?
 Or this?
 My goals for the week are going really well. Potty training has gone better than I ever thought it could. And I attribute it to the fact that Joash was really ready. I don't know that I want to actually say he is totally diaper free and jinx myself, but I haven't change a big bum since Monday and I really like that.

Mataya is doing excellent as well. The last two days have gone much better in the nap department. And she has been able to nap more in her crib, which great too. The biggest change I made was to put her down earlier for her naps and it seems to be helping a lot. She has been falling asleep without her soother as well, so progress is being made. And she is just so pleasant and happy when she is awake.
 Joash just loves talking to her and being by her. He asks me to put her on the floor so he can be by her. So cute. And yesterday, I came back from the kitchen and found him showing her a book. So cute!
I love my kids!

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.
