I am so happy! My husband has fulfilled my greatest (or at least one of them) wish and started a new blog! He is a very talented writer. He was a newspaper reporter for over 15 years. When we first met, one of the things I liked was that he was a good writer. But, when the biggest excitement he had to write about was education funding, I sort of lost sight of how talented of a writer he was. Well, he is back and better than ever! He has started a new blog called Tots-N-Tanks. There is a link to it over under my favorite blogs. I encourage you to check it out. He rocks and the first post is SUPER! Sadly, I will probably be jealous of him in the future. I will have one lonely follower on my blog and he will have 500, but I will still love him anyways!!!
I don't want to do two posts today so I will just tell you about the rest of our day here. We started with a leisurely breakfast here over PBS cartoons and legos. Then we went to a forest and took a hike together. It was beautiful! The colors are just starting to change and we experienced that distinctly fall weather of sunshine, wind and never feeling hot or cold. We had a picnic on a bridge and took the girls fishing. We never caught a thing, but they still had a great time! We found a neat historic town and wandered the streets for awhile. Our youngest daughter, who wants to take care of horses when she is older, saw a real horse today! I would LOVE to be able to give her riding lessons. She rode a horse last summer and she was a natural even at age 3! She sat in the saddle like she was born there and the look on her face was unforgettable. Today she got to pet a horse and she smiled for 3 blocks afterwards and had to call her nana and tell her about it later. At home my husband rode his bike with the girls and we bought them a little skate board. They tried it out and enjoyed it. Oh, we also flew a kite with them! They had said over and over that when daddy came back they wanted to fly a kite with him. It was so cool!!! We flew it and then my husband pretended the girls were soccer balls and he chased them into the goals. The penalty for NOT getting into the goal was TONS of tickling! It was FUN and it wore the little ones out! They fell asleep in about 5 minutes tonight. Tomorrow is our last day of freedom before he returns to work. I am excited to attend church as a FAMILY!
