The kids have decided they don't want Mom cutting their hair anymore. I have to admit, it's a lot easier to bring them somewhere!

The stylist put gel in Malcolm's hair which he played with for hours!

fun with sculpey

Cassidy and Malcolm had fun using sculpey during our playdate yesterday! They made blocks, balls, a candy cane and a pumpkin.

farm party

Our CSA farm had a potluck dinner Sunday night. The kids ate tons of crackers, drank tons of juice and played on the swing a lot!

We headed to Carver Hill orchard. The conditions were perfect for picking. We had so much fun and got a lot of apples!

I was taking a photo of Jane in her new vest while the kids were waiting for the bus and then we realized Malcolm still had slippers on!

trip to the park

It felt like fall yesterday! We took the kids to the park so they could ride their bikes and play.

Jane went to a rollerskating birthday party. She had never done it before, but she skated well and had a great time. Since she knows how to ice skate it probably made it easier for her! She's been begging me to go back.

These photos are from a few soccer games. Jane has gotten more aggressive and she almost scored yesterday!

Malcolm at soccer

Malcolm was very excited to start soccer again. It was hot and humid on his first day! Fewer girls are playing this time so he's on a team of 8 boys. He's happy because he's friends with most of the kids and he's had one of the coaches before.

Yesterday it was 85 out so I took the kids to the lake to swim after school. They were very excited!

science museum

We went to the science museum over Labor Day weekend. I know we've been a lot and I've posted a ton of photos, but we always discover something new there!

Tiny chair:

Jane wanted me to take a photo of this polar bear cub. He's not as cuddly as her stuffed animal, Marshmallow.
