I’m going to write 3 blog posts today… this one to catch up from September to the end of October, a second one to cover November (that I’ll publish tomorrow or Thursday), and the third one to get you from November to where we are now. To simplify the updates, I’m going to limit them to one flash slideshow of one album the rest of the albums will all be accessible via thumbnail links after each snippet of text.
It’s been a crazy couple of months with so many little side projects and things going on. The blog seems to be the first thing that I skip out on if things get tight… so if you suffer another drought here then you should follow me on Twitter/Facebook or my photo website as those I tend to be able to keep top of mind things rolling on.
So, where were we… oh yes, September dissolving into October:
The usual goofing around continues, of course,
Sam made a new friend, BokBok. BokbBok is a little stuffed animal bird that “cheeps” if you squeeze him. Sam played with him most of the day, most of that time in his Little People playset. We it came time for bed Sam wanted BokBok to join him… so he brushed the bird’s “teeth” and then tucked him into bed next to him.
A day Sam was waiting impatiently for finally came on the 7th. He got his splint off! We got some pictures of the check-up visit with the Doctor that did his surgery. Sam was so happy to get that splint off his arm. He was quick to get back to playing with his trains.
We made our annual pilgrimage to the Pumpkin Patch to find a pumpkin for everyone to make their own for Halloween. This year we went to Beasley’s and it was a great trip. We were joined by my parents, my sister, and her boys.
The Indiana vs. Illinois Football game in Bloomington is our next stop on the trip through October. Myself, Carson, my dad, a co-worker and his son braved the cold to take in a Big Ten football game at the newly renovated stadium. It was homecoming and IU came up big with a win. The boys favorite part had to have been the mini-field on the south end of the stadium that was for kids to run and play on.
Our haunted house trip is always a highlight for our whole family… next year we may have to make two trips, one for Carson to do the “scary” side and one for Sam to do our normal “friendly” trip. We invited one of Carson’s buddies from the neighborhood, Riley. The boys all had a great time.
That brings October to a close. Tune in tomorrow for our November update! To close, here are a couple of artsy pieces I did in October.
