Nana highlights

Here is a picture from the end of Nana's vist Oct. '07

Here is a picture from Monday. Wow!

We had a fabulous 2 weeks with Nana and were all sad to see her go. It flew by so quickly that we all asked her to stay longer, but she was ready to be off to her next adventure. Funny thing was that Caleb was totally out of sorts the day she left and had a terrible time napping and didn't sleep more than 1 during the day. He's doing better now, but I'm sure the change was very odd for him.

One of the fun things we did was have an ongoing game of Cash Flow for kids, a game that teaches you about assests and liabilities and gives you options to invest in property, stocks, small businesses, but also feel the pain of credit cards and loan. Very interesting. It lasted for over a week and we looked forward to it on the nights we had time to play. In the end, Nana had the most passive income "investments that brought income" and I had the most cash. Fun for all. Nana liked to get out and walk everyday and would walk to WalMart or Lowe's to check things out. Well, last Wednesday, we all, including our neighbor friend took off for a trip to WalMart on foot. We had 2 bikes, 1 stoller, 3 walking people. It was chilly and a bit windy, but it was really fun! On the way back, Carolyn and I had to pull the stroller backward to keep the wind out of Caleb's face. That was an adventure!
Catherine's class had a field trip to the pumpkin patch that we were able to join last Friday. It was so much warmer than when Samuel's class went 2 years ago! We froze last time and were taking off gloves and hats this time. Samuel was trying to get the camel to put it's nose in the bag of feed, but it ate the whole bag! They were also on the news live and then quick spots of them saying "Happy Halloween!" That was pretty cool. My pictures wouldn't rotate, so turn your head and enjoy!
One day, Samuel decided he wanted to rock Caleb before his nap. He really does like holding his brother, which is very sweet. So here they are, snuggling away. Again, turn your head!
We're getting back into the swing of things, but are so grateful we had those 2 weeks with Nana. We love you and miss you lots!
