21 Months

Mom: Mataya, you are 21 months old!

M(ataya): I know! And I love being a big girl.

Mom: What are some of the big girl things you are doing?

M: Well, I like to put on shoes and pick out my own clothes. I also really like to have bow in my hair. I like to look at books and "read" the stories. I also really like to sing sons like "Twinkle Twinkle Little Start" and "Jesus Loves Me."

Mom: What are your other favorite things to do?
 M: I love to go outside. I want to go outside all of the time and I DO NOT want to come back in. I love to roll in the snow, pick up snow chunks, try to crawl up hills and then slide down on my bottom. I also really like to go to the barn with Daddy and give the cows grain. I go and get my boots to let you know that I want to go outside.

Mom: I am happy that you like to be outside, but sometimes it is difficult when it is so cold. Summer will be nice and I think we will spend a lot of time outside. How is the talking going?
M: I have a lot to say and I like it so much when you can understand what I am saying. And I like to count as well.

Mom: What do you like to eat?

M: I love yogurt and cheese. I also really like apples, peaches and bananas. Supper is not my favorite meal at all, but I would really like to have some dessert.

Mom: I know you would like dessert, but you really need to eat your supper first. Well, I better let you take a nap so you have energy to back outside later.

M: Okay, Mom!

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.
