Okay, let me start off by stating 2 things:
#1- Let me get this off my chest: I don't really like the new blogger look. I am not all about some change and this is just confusing. Same with Facebook. I hate that Facebook keeps changing stuff. I really think they are just trying to confuse us into allowing us freaks who don't let just anybody be their friends, somehow slip up and let the whole world see our life without us knowing it. The government is behind it all. Maybe I should just close my Facebook... :-/
#2- Please don't chastise (coughBrittanyShamblincough) me for taking so long to write a new post. I really really really want to be a [good] blogger, but I always think of cheesy stuff to write about and then I think about how funny/uplifting/cool other people's blogs are that I read and then I think "That's so stupid. People will make fun me if I say that." So I avoid this computer, with all my pictures on it, in Alan's office like the PLAGUE! Now, feel free to brag and brag on me when I do write a clever/funny/uplifting blog post. (heehee;)
So, I thought maybe an update on what's been happening in our lives in the last few weeks. For those of you who may not know, Alan, along with 3 of his friends, have bought a small (very old, very inexpensive...) airplane. It's a Piper Cherokee something or other from like 1969. Don't get too excited. Here it is:
September 10th, we had a birthday party for Ford and it was so much fun! We were afraid it was going to be too cold for the water slides, but it turned out to be warm enough and all the kids had a blast! Except for Ford, who really wasn't very fond of the water slides. Oops. Guess I should ask him first next time. Here are a few pictures from Ford's 3rd birthday party.
A little more bragging and I'm done. ;) Logan has started reading! I checked out some books from the public library that are easy-readers for beginners. Most of the books have a good many of his sight words he's already been learning at school. But he has done such a great job sounding out the letters and sounds of the words he isn't familiar with and gets so excited when he figures it out all on his own! He has this cute little, almost sneaky-sounding giggle he does when he learns something all by himself. It is a sweet trait of his that squeezes my heart! I love that boy! He is such a joy to raise and love. I feel extremely blessed to be both of these boys' mama! :)
