Air Zoo

So we went to the Air Zoo in Kalamazoo on Monday. It was great!!! I had never been there before, and really liked it. It was very educational as well as fun! They had rides, kiosks (like a little TV station) with movies about different airplanes and how they were used...and of course AIRPLANES!!!! There were some pretty amazing ones!!! Here are a few pictures. I had a hard time deciding which ones to post as we took around 100!!!
Have a nice day everyone!

Swimming???!!! ( November?)


Call us crazy, but some of us went swimming in the Harvey's pond today!!! Us "old folks" were cowards...I said that the water would be too cold (which it was) so only my parents and the little guys went. They had a lot of fun, but came home and jumped into the warm tub!
I had the farrier out to trim my horses. Thankfully Rico was better this time. I actually took him for a walk this afternoon (with Annie's help), the first time I've really spent time with him since my surgery. Other things that happened today...Jacob sighted in his new scope on his muzzle-loader, Jill is babysitting, and Timothy went hunting. He saw a deer but didn't shoot at it.
Tomorrow promises be be then a baby shower, and choir practice for the Christmas program at church.
O.k. gotta' scoot.

learning to write your name is fun!

Several weeks ago Melody learned to write her name! She was faithful at the marker board day after day practicing, and was very proud when she accomplished the feat! (as you can see in the pictures). I thought that these were too sweet and had to share.

Here is the finished product!

Today we are making applesauce! Every year we go to an apple orchard and pick up TONS of apples. This year we also had apple cider made...64 gallons!!! I took a few pictures of some of the children that are working on the applesauce.
So far everyone has been staying very healthy in our home. There has been quite an outbreak of the flu in our area, we are very thankful to be well.
O.k. I gotta run for now. Have a wonderful day!!!!
