A Visit with Grandpa and Grandma

 My parents were here for a visit last week. We had a great time with them and were really glad since they brought the summer weather with them.

We picked Joash up from school so my parents could see it and then went out for lunch to celebrate Joash's first year at school.

Gideon was baptized on Sunday. I am so thankful that my parents were here for that.

Gideon was not a fan of picture time.
 We did lots of things around the house.

 Since we finally had nice weather, the first cut of silage needed to be done. My dad was recruited to help and I don't think he minded one bit.
 We also visited Kings Castle Park near Murray River. It was great park and one that we plan to return to. They had a nice beach area on the river.
 And some great play structures, both new and old. And a little trail with different storybook character statues on it.
 We had a such a great time. But Mataya learned that a week of fun with Grandpa and Grandma is tiring. This is how I found her yesterday at about 5 pm.
We loved having my parents here and look forward to the next time we can see them.

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.
