1. Pumpkin chocolate chip cookies. I've eaten my weight in them this week, but it's okay because they are veggie cookies!
Abe is sporting the pirate earring Cannon got at his friend's birthday party last Saturday. Abe has worked so much this summer and we've missed him terribly. He spent a weekday afternoon with us this week-- what a treat!
Abe took the opportunity to teach Cannon how to ride a two-wheeler.
Cannon caught right on and Faith declared him the quickest learner of all the kids.
Elinor and her good friend working on her electricity and circuits class. She loves it.
The girls love to read at bedtime. They are reading the Percy Jackson series again. And just as I know they won't play with Legos forever, I know they won't have American Doll posters and snuggle with stuffed animals for much longer. They'll grow up, and that's a good thing too, but I see absolutely no need to rush things.
Cannon is playing on a very simple fall soccer league. As I have mentioned before, my children do not excel on the soccer field. Let's take that a step further. My children don't really excel in any team sports. We have a very long history of being a part of chronically losing teams. No matter. We enjoy the experience anyway. Perhaps even more so, because there is never ANY pressure to win
But Cannon was all confidence before his first game, and he does have a little more ability than some family members. But, truth be told, by the second game he was happy to take his turn sitting out and snuggling with his mama. All of my children like the game of soccer in theory, but in practice they aren't as interested.
