November Fun

We had a quick visit from some of our Florida family.

We raked leaves, made bird nest, pretended to be a bird family and all sorts of fun things. Here are some pictures.

Funny Faces

Look at that throw!!!

Sweet face
I also went on a field trip with Skyler's class, back to the 1800's. It was fun but crazy cold!! Here are a few of those pictures.





Just a note from some life observations:
So many times we cry out to God for things we want, things we need, prayers to be answered. God always provides a way. Sometimes I do not see the answer for many years, then I look back and think WOW. I totally get it now God. 
Jehova Jireh ~ Genesis 22:14a
So Abraham called the name of that place, "The LORD will provide"

October Fun

Oh where to begin.

At the beginning of the month Skyler and I went to a safety fair. We saw all kinds of police vehicles, we met two police horse's, there were different fire trucks, and all the cool stuff. 

Scott had quite a few trips this month. Skyler, Vern and I went on one of them to Birmingham, A.L. While Scott was giving his presentation and mingling. Skyler and I went to the Science Museum and Botanical Gardens. We had a great time!

The next weekend we all went to visit family in Florida. This was a short but great weekend, I really enjoyed. We stopped halfway in between and Skyler got to see real cotton. We went to the beach two days in a row and looked for shells. Skyler saw "Sea Dollars", he "Water lifted his body", found a sea snail in it's shell, saw a Ghost Crab and Blue Crabs in the ocean that "Dad caught with his BARE Hands!!!". Very event full weekend.

Good news for Skyler at school. He is right on target and/or above target with his school work. He has come such a long way, since he didn't know much when we got him. So far this year he has done a great job working with is classmates, fights, biting, hitting ect..

For Halloween our neighbors had a cookout before walking around. This was nice to get to know some of our neighbors and kids. I'm still working on which kid belongs to which family and the house they live in. Skyler went as a Fireman, everyone loved his costume and he loved all the attention. Pop Pop would be very proud, he even had a fireman t-shirt on under his jacket. Skyler still wants to be a Fireman and a Dentist when he grows up.

Here are some pictures for the month
