Old Home Week

It is Old Home Week here on PEI and we went today as a family. It was the Dairy Cow show today, so we checked that out first. There were lots of nice looking cows and heifers. The kids were not super entertained, so it is a good thing this mom packed some snacks

The kids and Daddy!
 Joash decided to give the Pedal Tractor Pull a try this year. He did a pretty good job, but he didn't quite make it to a full pull.
 He even got a fun ribbon for participation, which he is pretty pleased with.
The kids also enjoyed the tractors and the toy tractors as well as the people walking around in a cow and chicken costume.

The kids also tried out some of the rides. This was the first ride and the only one Mataya went on. She was eager enough to go on and happy to sit in the truck at first, but by the end of the ride she was not a happy camper. Joash, however, had a great time and went on all the rides he went on last year and tried out some new ones as well.

It was a fun family day and we all had a good time.

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.
