This could possibly be the record for the most pictures included in any post here at A Steady Rain! I knew I needed to document the last couple months or I'd never get around to it! Here it goes.....
My big boy started Kindergarten this year and he is loving it! He says his teacher looks like Mary Jane from Spiderman and it's so fun to hear him talk about the new friends he's making.
I was brave. I only cried on the first day AFTER leaving the school building!!
With school comes lots of new germs. We didn't make it out of the first week before he was hit with a nasty bug. After a missed day of school and lots of time on the couch, he was back to his energy-filled self!
I just love this sign we made at MOPS. Have I mentioned how awesome our crafts coordinator is??
My good friend Krista and I were able to go to Women of Faith in Rochester, NY. This was my second time going and her first. This time we took a chartered bus and it made the trip so much more fun.
We even got chocolate covered strawberries to enjoy on the trip. Yum!
The event itself was amazing. The speakers (especially Angie Smith, Sheila Walsh, and Max Lucado) shared truth in a loving and direct way. It was such a great time of refreshment.
My little guy hasn't been bored with his brother at school! He's so excited to have his own Spiderman suit to wear!
He's had his share of the germs too!
Who can complain about having the B&N train table all to yourself??!!
I was also able to go to a live simulcast of the Revive '13 - Women Helping Women Conference hosted by True Woman at a local church. It was great to glean more wisdom from two of my favorite speakers, Elyse Fitzpatrick and Paul Tripp.
We were excited to hold a child dedication Sunday during one of our services at the end of September. Six families prayed for wisdom and guidance as we raise our little ones to love Him.
Kindergarten also brings a little reading and writing homework. We had to get a picture of his 1st homework assignment ever!
There was no school on Columbus Day weekend, so we drove the couple hours to the Lancaster/Hershey area for a family getaway. It was raining the whole time we were there, so we were super thankful for a warm, dry and CHOCOLATEY place to visit!
I just love this tree in our front yard. In person, the leaves almost look fluorescent!
Some friends invited us over to help make and can applesauce. It was really fun, but was quite the big job! This box was only one of several. We ended up canning 108 quarts total!
The next highlight of our fall was our little guy's 2nd birthday! He asked for a cookie instead of a traditional birthday cake.
He was SO excited!
Me and my wiggly little guy!
We had fun enjoying some beautiful fall days at our local playground!
Last, but not least, was the walk/run fundraiser at school Each grade walked (or ran) around the bus loop for an hour and parents were welcome to come along.
It was SO cold!
Even our little guy got in on the action!
Whew!! I think I'm caught up now! How has your fall been so far?? I'd love for you to share in the comments or join the conversation at our A Steady Rain Facebook page!
