Family Bowling

It is true. Farming is a way of life. There is always work to do, always things that can be done. And it is easy to forget that you need to take time off, take a break and do something fun with your family and friends.

So today was a day we did just that. Reina, Wilbert's sister, is home for the holidays, so we went bowling this morning with the family.

They had the Glow-bowl black lights on, and Mataya was dressed very nicely for this. She did not bowl, and everyone took a turn keeping her from running down the lane to the pins at the end.

My bowling scores were not too bad. We had two lanes between the 7 of us. The girls played one lane and the boys another. The girls managed to get 3 games in and I broke 100 twice.

 For you Americans reading, this is 5 pin bowling and the balls are the size of a large grapefruit. It is a million times easier then 10 pin bowling.
 It was the third time Joash had been to the bowling alley, but the first time he could actually bowl. So the guys had the bumpers up in their lane so Joash could actually knock some pins down. I think he liked it over all, but it maybe was a bit long for him.
After bowling we had a super yummy lunch at Cora's, which is pretty much our family's favourite place to eat. It was a lovely day with family!

He's Rolling!

Gideon has master rolling this week and sometimes, he is not too happy about it... He can go from his back to his belly all on his own. And if you lay him on his belly propped up on his elbows, he will roll over to his back.
He started rolling in his crib at nap time, so that means no more swaddling. Which also means we have to relearn sleeping through the night. He has done two nights swaddle free, which have gone okay. He stirs a few more times during the night, but I only got up once to actually feed him so he will settle back to sleep. So, not too bad and hopefully we get back on track quickly.

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.

Storybook Character Day 2016

Today was Storybook Character Day at Joash's school. I tried to make it easy on myself and encouraged Joash to use one of the costumes we have on hand. So, he picked the chef costume and took the book Sam the Chef.  Notice anything about his face? I didn't have time to take a picture before school and we got a call right around lunch time that Joash had a pretty bad fall on the asphalt at school during recess. He was pretty shook up about, so I went to pick him up early today. He seems pretty much his normal self now, so we are not too worried. And of course, school pictures are on the 31st, so we will have to see how well he has healed by then.
