A Busy Week of Firsts

I don't know about you, but it is 9 pm on Monday, and I am tired. I think part of it is we had a busy week of  "firsts" over here, all which remind me that my kids are growing up way to fast.

Our fall activities have started. I attend a Coffee Break Bible study on Tuesday morning and Joash has moved up to Story Hour. We have now entered the time of crafts to take home. "Clear the refrigerator." said Wilbert. I was nervous for this transition because he did so well in the nursery he was in last year. He loved the ladies that took care of him because they brought tractors for him to play with. But Story Hour went well with just a few tears.

Then on Sunday Joash started to go to Junior Sunday School. This means he sits in church with us for the first half of the service, then goes to the front of church for the Children's Message and then heads downstairs for Sunday School. He did really well with this one. He was pretty quiet during church, sat in the front nicely and stayed in Sunday School without tears.It helps that he is in the same room at church for both of these activities.

But my favourite thing about all of this is hearing him talk about the Bible story that he hears a bit. He loves stories and so far he has always been able to tell what the story is about. And that makes this mom happy to know that her son is paying attention to what is happening and learning about God at the same time.

The other "first" happened today as we started chopping our first corn silage ever. Joash got to spend all morning in the tractor and he loved it! I did to because it meant I could get groceries and run other errands with only one child! I am sure there will be more on the corn and corn silage process later on in the week. I think they have to finish up tomorrow since is started raining this afternoon, so hopefully it will be finished tomorrow.

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.
