Wildwood Nature Center

We went to the Wildwood Nature Center in Harrisburg today for a field trip with the co-op. We started the day by finding animals in exhibit hall. There were alot of animals to find (muskrats, bees, ladybug, birds, snakes, etc.). Mj enjoyed the observation deck looking for birds and squirrels. He also enjoyed the tunnel under the tree. Then we all went for a nature hike with a guide. We learned facts about the plants and animals in the area. We learned that woodpeckers wrap their tongue around their brain to cushion it when pecking a tree and that snapping turtles do not hide in their shells. We also saw many things on our nature hike including a woolly bear caterpillar, a frog, mink poop, and owl throw-up. Very exciting!! ;)

The Last Practice and Game.

Mj's soccer season has come to an end. Well..... almost. We just found out tonight they'll be in a tournament on Nov.1. For their last practice the parents took on the kids. The kids won 3-2! I think the parents may have let them win, but I'm not sure. ;) Mj's last soccer game was very cold, but the kids had fun. Mj was awarded a medal and certificate tonight at their pizza party. Here are some pics!

Mj would be the one with the blue beanie hat =)
We tried to keep Jadyn warm!Nice goal kick!Did I mention it was freezing?!=) We're so proud of our soccer star!=)Mj thought he was a gold medalist like Michael Phelps!=)

Precious Moments

Jadyn turned 4 months old on Sunday! I can't believe how fast she is growing up! She is getting to be such a big girl. She's grabbing at her toys now and "talks" up a storm!! Tomorrow she goes for her 4 month check up. Can't wait to hear how big she's getting.
This morning I walked into the living and found Mj curled up with Jadyn. He was reading a Clifford book to her! It was so cute!!!

Apples and More Apples!!!

Exersaucer Fun

We tried Jadyn out in her exersaucer on Sunday for the first time. She loved it so, of course, I went a littel camera crazy. Here's a couple pics from Jadyn's 1st exersaucer experience.

A Must See

Mark and I went to see the movie "Fireproof" last night! It was an excellent movie! Every married couple needs to see this movie! It also gives a clear presentation of the gospel. We already plan to buy the DVD when it comes out.
