So Jameson's feet are growing at a different rate than Ben's did. Jameson's feet are right between the sizes of shoes that we already have so I had to get him some new ones. He was so excited that he would not take them off. One night I went in his room to check on him and I came out asking Trevor why Jameson was not wearing his PJ pants. Trevor responded with a simple "did you look under the blanket?" So when I returned to the room and removed his blanket this is what I found. No further explanation needed!

We are a month into the school year and Ben is doing great. His teacher is Ms.Erstad and she seems like a great teacher with more patience than I could ever dream to have. Ben has some new friends that he talks about often (Max, from his t-ball team, Phillip, Austin, Benjamin L and Brynlynn).
The hardest part for Ben thus far has been walking to school on his own. The first few days I walked him all the way to his classroom. After that we started backing off little by little. First it was just to the front door, then the corner by the school and then just to the crossing guard at the end of our street. Now Ben and Olivia run down the street, Olivia waits for me and Ben is off to school before I can even get all the way down the street with Jameson. I have learned quickly to get my hug and kiss in the driveway before we leave.

The summer went out with a bang this year. August was a busy month full of activities and adventures. First was our trip to the MN Zoo thanks to Great Grandpa and Grandma Eisenmenger's Christmas gift. The kids loved it! As soon as we got there Jameson was off and running and was in awe of all the things to see.
Okay, so my favorite animal has to the be the Giraffe and this summer the zoo had the Africa exhibit staring the Giraffe. I don't know who had more fun watching them, me or the kids.
Jameson liked watching the goat milking but was quite ready to try it himself. Maybe next year...
This is the excited face that we got to see all day as he walked around looking at everything.
At the bottom of the falls we all took off our shoes and splashed in the water for a while. It was a hot day and the cool water felt great.
Olivia thought she better try too.
The following week I took a Friday off to go on the class field trip out to Galewood Farm. The kids learned all about how a farm works, the soil, the animals and where our food comes from.
The highlight was running on the hay bails.
After the farm I took the kids home so we could head to Jessie and Lucas's cabin for the night
The kids loved the sauna
James was stuck like glue to Ben for the entire night.
We finished our short weekend with a nice boat cruise around the lake. It was a beautiful late afternoon.
Thanks Jessie and Lucas for sharing the cabin with us.
The last weekend of the summer was spent at our cabin. We returned Monday a little early to get ready for the school year. Kindergarten here we come!
