Her first ball of yarn!

BIG trucks 9-19-15

Two weekends ago while Daddy had to go to CT for the day I took the boys to a "touch a truck" day. We had never been to one, and although I had told the big boys it was for Harkin, they all really had a great time climbing up into the trucks, checking things out and honking horns. Issabelle even got into the action at the end.

waiting for the car

We had to get the car fixed earlier this month. While waiting we walked to the town green and hung out for a bit. The boys were off playing soccer while little miss had fun standing and posing for her mama. She was so proud of herself for standing up.

all in a day

A day jammed packed with adventuring, friends and goodness. 

First up was a zip lining trip with our good friends. Their mom even went which was a bit nerve racking for her. You can see by the little old men, they were contemplating how safe this whole adventure was. Everyone made it through and had a bit of fun.

Next was the corn maze, with five boys trying to lead us through. It was fun at first, then we got a bit lost, and the temps were rising, it was lunch time with no lunch so tempers kinda flared. We finally all agreed to let one person direct us out and we made it to all the stops without too many meltdowns. Everyone was glad to be done and devoured lunch and spent a bit of time on a playground. The second one of the day.

We made our way home for a short rest and then off to end the day with Will's soccer game. Issabelle was having a great time pushing the stroller around. She wants to walk so badly.

It was a tiring day and glad that the next day we were able to just be home for the better part of the day. Right now that is how our life is - packed with activities, but its all good.


While the big boys were rock climbing, Harkin, Issabelle and  I went fall raspberry picking. I never new there was such a thing. It was fun having Harkin run the show. He was pretty excited to be picking his own container and wouldn't let me help at all. It was a fun hour with my two little ones.

our homeschool group

This here is our group of friends whom get together regularly for fun, field trips and a once a month learning activity. They are a good group of kids and a bit silly, if you can't tell from the photos.

There are 5 families with 12 kids all together. Me having both the oldest and youngest of the group. It has taken us about 2 years to really get to know each other and feel totally comfortable. The kids know what to expect from one another and our goal this year is to have them really feed off one another in their learning activities.

Each month one mom leads the day and has the kids for about 3 hours. They work together to solve problems and accomplish tasks.  The 4 little ones don't participate but on the field trip days they get to come along.  This day we went to the Rokeby Museum  and learned all about the underground railroad and two slaves who had escaped to Vermont. Photos below.

One of my favorite photos. Issabelle is being doted on by the other girls while her big brother stays close by making sure she is all right.

The day went well, but it was HOT-90* so this little guy was overdone you could say.
