Fun at the track!!!

It was absolutely beautiful today. Nothing like at the beginning of the week with 6 degree temps. One of our goals this year as a family is to be more active. So we took advantage of the 60 plus degree weather and hit the track. Ben, Emma and Brooks did a mile while I ran. I was so proud of them all. When we got finished Emma wanted to try stadiums. We did 5 of those! We are hoping to do this at least twice a week this year. They always see me go to the gym but never get to go so hopefully this will help instill long term healthy habits for them both! Here are some pictures I took!

She did so good and never complained once! She ran and walked her mile!

Emma and Brooks running. Brooks did so good also and kept up with me for an entire lap while I was running. At the end of his mile he said my legs are tired! It was too cute!

After we got through we stretched and headed to the park! Such a great, fun family day of church and spending time outside.

Happy Halloween

The weather this year was less then great for trick or treating. It was unseasonably warm (which was good) but with that came the threat of rain and bad weather. We decided to start our trick our treating at the church since they moved it indoors and then head back and do the neighborhood in case it started raining which it did about 5 houses in. The kids had fun though so that's all that matters. Amy, Mark, Braegan, Shirley, Tiffany, Sam, Shelby, Carter and Makenzie joined us this year.

School Fun with Emma

Today I headed to the school for all kinds of fun with Emma's class. We started with a pumpkin investigation where we measures it, cleaned it out and counted all 520+ seeds, weighed it and carved it. 

Then it was off to lunch we went!

After lunch we headed back to her class for some Halloween math games. 

I had so much fun spending time with her and her class. It was definitely a treat for us both!! 


Fall Festival with Friends

Sunday one of the local churches was having a fall festival and Tiffany invited us to join them. We had so much fun and got to do a lot before it started to rain. Here are some pictures I took.

Clyde's Weekend with Brooks

Brooks' class has a class cow and he gets to go home with a different kid each weekend. We started the weekend out with a bang, with Brooks wanting Clyde to do everything and then it dwindled down. I tried to get Clyde to go with us on all his outings but Brooks said he wanted to stay home. :) Here are some pictures of them Friday night.

Brooks enjoyed bringing Clyde home even if he didn't do all of our outings for the weekend.

Way to go Brooks!!!

Brooks is learning to write his name this year and he's already amazing me. Here is where he wrote Mom all by himself.

Here is where he wrote his name. I am so proud of my little buddy!!
