Fall Y'all

It's finally starting to feel a little like fall around here.  It is still warm during the day but the evenings are cool (well cool for us anyway)!  Last weekend we headed out to a local farm/pumpkin patch with some friends.  The girls had a lot of fun.

They practiced their roping skills

They met some scarecrows

They picked some pumpkins

They posed for a picture with Dad

They went on a hay ride

They rode horses

After the pumpkin patch we went to visit Uncle Greg who was in town for the weekend.  We had a hard time getting a good picture of them  as they were being super silly uncooperative...

Playing Catch Up

As usual we have been keeping pretty busy ... below are some photos of what we have been up to.

Playing with our food

Wearing winter PJs even though it is still in the 90's

Riding Bikes

Celebrating Columbus Day
(Nina, Pinta & Santa Maria hat)

Play lots and lots and lots of soccer

Playing on the playground at sister's soccer games

Visiting with friends

As if that wasn't enough activity for one week, I flew to NJ for work last week too.  A nice bonus was the fact that I was able to have dinner with Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt D and Cousin R.  I wish D and the girls could have joined us!  This week looks like it is going to be just as busy!  Whew!

Everyhing I need to Know I Learned in First Grade

To say that Chatty is learning a lot this year is an understatement.  First they learned about volcanoes, then rocks and now the body - bones and muscles.  She got to ride the bus home on Friday afternoon and when she got off she was wearing this:

Nice work.  She even had her brain detailed on a headband

In other exciting news this week, Chatty lost another tooth!  Someone joked she was going to need dentures soon.

Chatty's soccer team had the week off but she was asked to sub on our sister team with girls a year older than her.  She did awesome - she held her own and almost scored a goal!  She loves playing with the older girls.  It helps that she is as tall as most of them.

 She did a great job dribbling past the other team

Getting directions from Coach K (who is her regular coach too)

After the game we went the every one's favorite pizza place to cool off (it was over 100 degrees at game time)!
