Pumpkin Patch Day with G's Class!
(click here for today's pictures)
  • Last night as Robby was explaining where and with who everyone was going today, he practically needed a flow chart.  The kids acted like they understood but his speech went something like this "Graham will go to the pumpkin patch with me, Mom will drop Keaton and Campbell off at Nonna's house and then drop Reagan and Anderson off at school.  Then Mom will pick up Campbell and Keaton.  Then we will all run an errand while Nonna picks up Anderson and Reagan and eventually everyone will meet again at the ballgame."  It is no wonder they get confused about what is happening next!
  • Graham was still a bit scared during the hay ride at the pumpkin patch and didn't want to go on the train ride but he still had a blast.  Robby said that Graham really enjoyed riding on the pedal tractors.  And of course, Graham was intent on bringing home the biggest pumpkin ever and I do think that his pumpkin is larger than all of the others.  
  • Keaton and Campbell had lots of fun at Nonna's house.  They enjoyed pushing and being pushed in the strollers and Campbell even had a bath.  When I came to pick her up, she was happy to pass out a few cookies to me and quite a few to herself.  
  • At home, we all had lunch and then did a few chores.  Campbell and Keaton had a short little nap and  Graham and I watched a Cake Boss while I worked on my coupons (as is our Monday tradition).  We then had to run an errand to sign a few papers and then kids enjoyed a cinnamon roll from Starbucks and then Sonic drinks on the way home.  
  • We had a few minutes at home and Graham and Campbell helped me paint my new chalkbaord while Keaton watched.  Before too long it was time to head to the football game.  
  • Reagan and Anderson met us there and we didn't get to find out much about school except that Anderson's teacher forgot their stickers (again!) and Reagan's teacher, Ms. Pam, wasn't there.  
  • Tonight during the game, Campbell looked at me and said "my ears are cold but they will warm up at the beach."  Um, okay, whatever!
  • The boys are really doing well at football.  They did indeed win tonight by my count (2-1) and also by Anderson's count (4-1).  Anderson did look at one of the coaches tonight and say "We are getting good at this, right Coach?"  He did pull at least one flag, tried to block others from pulling flags and ran quite a few yards and nearly made a touchdown.  
  • Graham was into the game tonight too and not as distracted as last Monday.  He pulled one flag and was really into chasing the ball carrier and trying his hardest to get flag.  And my Reagan is just so cute while cheering (even though she never smiles-takes it all too seriously).  She knows all of the words and many of the motions.  Can't wait to see her perform Saturday at the stadium.  
  • After the game, Nonna, Pops and Jason all joined us at Chick Fil A for supper.  The kids enjoyed playing for a bit and then it was time to head home.  Oh, yes, at Chick Fil A, Campbell did try to walk out the front door and was stopped by a stranger and then tried to walk out the back door-she was escorted to the car with my hand securely around her arm.  I don't know what I am going to do with that silly girl-oh, they all can't be perfect!   :)
