We started the month out, like we always do, with Carl's birthday. I love the last quarter of the year when we are finally the same age!
Carl took his birthday off and we went bowling! The boys first bowling experience. They loved it but the people around us did NOT love them loving it. They had a really hard time grasping the concept of staying in our space. Thankfully the alley was pretty empty and the boys did not get hit with any balls. They were really hilarious when bowling - I will try to get some video uploaded too.
We also celebrated Carl's birthday with a Rock Band party at my parents' house. We now add Rock Band and karaoke on Zachary's learning record as reading practice! He reads lyrics and really rocks! Both kids work on rhythm and color recognition when they play the guitar and drums too :)
Our garden gave us our first taste of our labors. Two tiny radishes! The boys tried to give it a thumbs up but they weren't so impressed with the bitter little veggies. They much preferred the radishes a month or so later.
Our good friends Lincoln and Reagan hatched ducklings and we had the opportunity to meet the new ducklings.
Lincoln and Reagan always show the boys their great computer games.
We go to weekly library storytime but once a month the library has a special storytime. The zoo sanctuary next to the library brings over an animal. The books are all about that animal and the docents talk about the animal and introduce him to the kids. October was owl storytime. The owl performed well, to the children's delight he pooped while out of his cage!
We celebrated our friend Charlotte's birthday with a baby doll party. She had a small party and wanted "her people" there including "Zachaby and Willam". The birthday girl's grandma made these great baby doll slings as well as a doll sized cloth diaper, blanket and pillow! Such a fun birthday favor!
More October coming up next...
