Our (Mostly) Fearless Corn Maze Leader

We went to one of the farms this afternoon to check out the pumpkins. We ended up seeing but not getting any pumpkins :)

We did adventure through a corn maze with Savannah leading the way, play on their Playset, get Savannah a unicorn painted on her face, wander around their store and took a hayride complete with passing three dump trucks which had Tyler squealing in joy.

There are a few more we'll hopefully visit this month and one of these days we'll even remember to get some pumpkins (I hope!).

Fall Leaves!!

It's really fall up here! We found a huge pile of leaves by the playground at our favorite German restaurant. Savannah started picking some up to play with then I clued her in to what they're really good for - showers! She called her brother over to join and they both went crazy.

I couldn't even get a clear picture they were moving and laughing so much.

Master Builder

One of Savannah's birthday presents was a set of Magformers. Her set included squares and triangles with magnets on each side that she can build with. First she was just making them in piles (squares vs triangles), messing up her piles then doing it again.

Then I showed her the booklet it came with and she was super excited to build the things shown. Meaning she wanted us to build then for her. We obliged and tried to have her help but she got frosted very easily because they stick to whichever one you get them close to - and it's not always the right place.

This morning she brought them out and wanted me to build again. I told her she should try and I'd help her and gave her the booklet. She got started and after a couple "Oh my gosh, that's not right!" she had the first side of a rocket done. I held up the first two pieces going vertical then showed her if she put the third next to them they'd stay up by themselves (the third was a different direction so it was like a stand for the first two). I let go and she finished all by herself! She was super proud of her rocket as she should be!

Montessori Camp

Savannah just finished her two week Montessori camp. She had a great time learning about creature under the sea! We were planning on her going to the same place for preschool but she had been begging me to go back to the Y the whole two weeks so I enrolled her for preschool there instead.

Here are a few pics from Ms Dina of their adventures under the sea.


Savannah has been using the backpack Lexy gave her for camp. After a couple days, Tyler decided he needed one too so he adopted her old one our previous neighbors gave us. He will not leave the house without it! Thankfully he always knows where it is..

Her Name is Scout

Nanny Danielle brought birthday presents for the kids the other day. Savannah's was a little dog (dog she says, not puppy) that jumps around and talks. Here is her with her new dog "Scout". So far Melanie is not jealous however she is scared..
