Life is what happens…

While you’re busy, busy, busy!


Paige is constantly keeping us on our toes!  One minute she is easy going and loving, the next she is disrespectful, stubborn and rude.  Oh, who am I kidding – she pretty much sticks with the latter!  We’re working on it though and there are the occasional moments where I see the sweet girl she can be!


Then we had Caden with his black eye right before school started!  Cousin Katy chased him down to throw him in the pool.  When she caught him he flipped upside down in her arms and hit his eye on her knee – what are the odds?!  She tossed him in the pool and by the time his head popped back up it was already swollen to about the size of a marble!

P1100409-2The kids and I “celebrated” Chinese Moon Festival too!  Over the years we have come to decide that we don’t particularly care for moon pies but Oreos make a great substitute.  So we sat out on the driveway and ate our Oreos while looking at the yellow Harvest moon.  We talked a little about what the mid-Autumn moon festival is about in China and about Paige’s first families who might be looking at the same moon with us.  Then, since no celebration is complete with out friends, the kids took Oreos down the street to their friend Aly and across the street to Mr. Jim.  After that we all ran, in bare feet, up around the corner to the Clary/Walker’s and surprised them with a chorus of “Happy Chinese Moon Fest!”  We shared more Oreos before heading back home to get ready for bed.
