Hide and Seek

Joash loves to play hide and seek. He is not very good at though yet. First of all, when it is my turn to hide and his turn to count, he counts way too fast and I hardly have time to get into a decent spot to hide. Second, when it is his turn to hide he does a pretty good job of finding a place to hide in the house. (Outside, he thinks if he is near the trees, he is hidden, even though he is plainly in view.) But as soon as he knows you are looking,  he starts to say, "Here I am! Over here!" 

Today after supper, we prayed as we always do. We always have to remind Joash to close his eyes and fold his hands. He is pretty good at doing it, but he often covers his eyes with his hands. Tonight, after we said "Amen," Joash had his hands over his eyes. "Where are you?" he asked. Wilbert asked the question back to Joash and he replied, "Over here!" Then he took his hands off his eyes, giggled, and said, "My eyes were hiding!" 

Here is a nice picture where Joash's eyes are hiding. Wilbert would like me to point out the "manure scraper" hooked up to the 6410. Thanks for the Flessenlikker Tante Bertha.
 And how can you be sad when this is face you see when you get your 12 week old up from her nap.

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.
