Day Off

No school for the kids today because the teachers are having their parent teacher conferences. I went to Natalie's conference today, and she's doing great. I asked her teacher if she thought Natalie needed any help with her speech, specifically her "r" sound. She said Natalie is SO quiet, so she hadn't noticed anything, but would have the speech therapist come in and ask her some questions. So we will see where that goes.

Thankfully we had something planned to make it a fun day off from school. We went to a pumpkin patch type place that had lots of fun things for the kids to do. 

Natalie rode this ride last year and got scared, so she wasn't up for trying it again. Jansen loved it. 

Poor animals. Can you imagine being fenced in with small children circling and touching you all day? Jansen wanted me to add that all kids were very gentle though.

Emmy had no problem trucking her way to the top of this slide and going down all by herself.

Pretty good shot with everyone looking at me! At least I think Jansen is looking at me.

I was too impatient to wait for the perfect moment, so I just snapped a picture of the group a little prematurely. It was a great morning. Nate is in Washington D.C. right now, so activities like these really help  the days pass quickly.

Jansen's right. :)

I've had the same thoughts about those poor animals.

Oh Jansen you are such a great kid! It is a great post. I'm glad you are doing some fun things while Nate is away. You know you have a friend that LOVES to talk on the phone so if you need a phone chat...I'm just saying.
