Wesley's Physical Therapy

Okay, okay. I know. It's getting to be a bit much. This is my third blog for the day. I've just wanted to get these pics and videos on here forever.

Here's Tim giving Wesley some physical therapy. The kids were loving it. Wesley was seriously into it. I don't know if it was just timing, or if Tim's "work-outs" actually helped (he didn't usually do the treadmill, but work with a theraball and walking between chairs while taunting with a favorite book...), but after just three days of working with him, Wesley started to walk on his own a lot. Now, about a week later, I'd say that he walks about 80% of the time. He's so cute.


We have been having such a fun month. We've carved pumpkins, enjoyed the fall colors, and even played in the snow. The most memorable moment of the month was Miles' and Lindsay's Piano Institute Halloween Party/Recital. They each had a Halloween Song they've been practicing for the month, and then, on Saturday, they performed it at the party. We were so proud of them. They were both definitely nervous (Lindsay was more vocal about her nerves. Poor Miles. I didn't even notice his until I saw the pale-ness of his face after he finished.) They both did great, especially considering it was their first time to play in front of people.

October Fun

I haven't posted in a while. We've been having a lot of fun. Wesley's finally walking a little more. I'll post a cute video of some of his "practicing" with Tim.

Also, the kids had their Halloween Piano Recital/Costume Party. They've been working on a Halloween song for a while now, and they each got to perform it for an audience. They were both sooooo nervous. I wasn't sure Lindsay would do it. She was freaking out the entire morning. They both did awesome, though. We were so proud of them. Miles played "The Imperial March" (Darth Vader's theme), and Lindsay played "Mister Pumpkin".

Enjoy the videos and pictures.

Wesley's walking...sort of

Poor kid. He'll never get all of the attention to himself. There's always someone (or sometimes even three other little people) trying to be in the limelight with him. Oh well. The troubles on a middle child (and believe me I know ALL about them. Hee, hee.)

All's well here. Hope you like the video.

Visit to the Farm

a picnic lunch at a table just for two boys
Wesley had fun feeding the goat.
Sam's showing off, getting ready to feed the goats.

Samuel, Wesley, and I went to the Farm that's just in the North part of the city. We had fun feeding oats to sheep, goats, and pigs. We also saw chickens, ducks, cows, and horses. I thought I'd post a few cute pictures.

I figured it out!!!

I haven't been able to log onto my blog for a few weeks now. I finally figured out the problem, so I'm back!! I know you're all thrilled.

We had a fun visit from Jen, Matt, and Gracie Hansen this weekend. They are thinking about moving to Colorado. We took them up to Estes Park (a mountain town right at the entrance to Rocky Mountain National Park). It is elk season. All the elk come down out of the mountains and basically roam the city. We caught up with a bunch on a private golf course that they just routinely close down for the month of October, knowing that the elk will just take over for that month. It was crazy. We were literally just a few feet from these bad boys.

We watched this guy for a while. He crossed the river, too.

The girls: Lindsay, Caroline, Jen, and Gracie
