Wood pile

Joe's friend offered us a bunch of wood all we had to do was split it and bring it home. What alot of hard work that was. Austin had fun climbing on the pile, and also helping with his tractor as well. Joe and Austin would bring the wood to Gracie and I and we would stack it in the back.

Trunk or Treat

We went trunk or treating on friday at a local church. C.J. and Austin enjoyed driving golf tees into pumpkins. Gracie, Lindsey and Chloe enjoyed making a picture frame craft. We all enjoy tricker treating together every year. This year Gracie ( and joe) was to hand out candy at the house while I went with Austin around the neighborhood. Thankfully we went to this church the day before because Austin woke up with a fever on halloween. Gracie had a friend show up at the house and wanted to walk with her so she ended up going and bringing candy back for Austin and herself. Joe and I sat outside by the fire pit giving out candy while Austin slept inside.

Michigan Field Trip

Gracie took a field trip with her 5th grade class to Henry Ford Museum and Greenfield Village. She had alot of fun, but it was a very long day for her (and me). She took 178 pictures and I had her pick 5 to post. 1st picture is the staircase that she said led to nothing excititng. They thought there was going to be something cool at the bottom and there wasnt, just a bunch of tools. 2nd picture is a little blurry, but a funny story. This is a turkey that she took a picture of and as soon as she was done taking the picture it came after and almost attacked the girls. She laughs everytime she tells the story. 3rd is the Oscar Mayer wiener car. 4th is Gracie and her friends Helen, Paxie, Cheyane, Amanda, and Kalyn. 5th pic is Gracie being a teacher in the old school house.
I didnt get to go with Gracie on this field trip, it was very hard for me to let her go so far away without me. We both survived.

Austin's tomato plant

This is the tomato plant Austin got for his birthday. It was only about 4 to 6 inches tall when he got it. We both watched it very carefully hoping to get lots of tomatoes. This is the only tomato we got from it worth eating. He was so very proud. We are going to try a bigger garden next year.
