Today was Cydney's first day of 3 year old preschool. She was soooo excited! We picked a preschool that is just a few blocks away so that we can walk there. She ran the whole way there and I had a hard time keeping up with her. :-) She had a fantastic time. She said the teacher didn't get mad at her and she had only one complaint that someone had pulled her hair. So perhaps we need to do braids or a bun. :-)
Ian had his 18 month check up yesterday and got a good report. He did have to get a couple of shots. He still amazes me that he only blinks when they give them to him. I guess when your daily tasks involve jumping off chairs face first onto the floor, a little needle doesn't hurt so much. :-) He's been saying a lot more words lately. "Snack, birdie, bus, Dadda, shoes." He is obsessed with shoes. I took the kids shoe shopping the other day and it was if I'd taken him to the biggest toy store ever! He just kept giggling as he pulled box after box off the shelves and tried each shoe on.
We've been blessed by the squash fairy this summer. Here are the kids with our HUGE squash. I finally had to start freezing some because we were all getting a little tired of it at every meal. :-)
This week it is apples. We picked 40 pounds of apples over the weekend at Papa's farm. So far we've made apple butter, but I think applesauce, apple bread, and apple pie filling are going to be in the works the next couple of days. We really need a bigger freezer and stomachs. :-)
