Yesterday, we decided to have Grant and Greyson come play after school today. While waiting for the bus yesterday, we invited Austin and Jack to come play, as well!
The boys started off riding bikes and scooters.
Ethan is still trying to get the hang of his scooter.
They QUICKLY moved on to playing soccer....which in all fairness, was a little less stressful for the parents. When these boys got together they heard NOTHING but each other. I think we yelled their names about ten times before they finally payed attention when we saw a car coming.
This picture cracks me up. Notice how all the boys are going for the ball....except for Lincoln. He is going for Grant. Not sure what that crazy kid is thinking!
By the end of the night, Jack's little brother and sister had come down. Truman, another boy from his class and also a neighbor, came down. Then we met a new neighbor and his little boy. It was a full on block party!!!

Yesterday, the soccer field was full of surprises. We arrived to find out that the boys were playing on fields next to each other. I quickly ran home to get lawn chairs so that Nate and I could sit next to each other and watch both boys together. Within a few minutes, we looked up and saw Aaron and Danielle. They woke up on one of their last weekends to sleep in (new baby on the way) to come surprise the boys!
To top it off, Ethan scored his first goal! I had to have Nate stop me from running over to hug him. I was so proud of him!!! It was so great!
Next week is our last week. Marilyn will be here to see it! I can't wait to show her how much they have improved!!!

One of the BIG perks of getting to stay home this year is that Lincoln and I get to do some fun things with Ethan. We've been to eat lunch with him and yesterday we got to join his class on his field trip to the pumpkin patch.
They had some really cool things at the pumpkin patch. The class was able to do some duck races, hay rides, digging in corn, and inflatables.
It was super hot!!! Lunch in the shade was a great refresher!
This is my new friend Jessica and her son Greyson! As soon as I saw that she had two boys my boys age and Grant was in Ethan's class, I made SURE we befriended them! It was such a good match!!! The boys love each other and she is GREAT!!
The buddies with their pumpkins!
It was so hot yesterday. I started to get really worried about Lincoln. He kept falling down and just looked like he was in a daze! He took a rest in the shade until he saw the big boys and girls running to the big races! He was not about to miss them!
All the kids loved watching those little pigs run!
This is another one of Ethan's good friends, Austin.
We have been so blessed to make such good friends here in such a short time!

I saw some spooky balloons on a blog this week. I showed it to Nate and he was excited about making them. We stopped at Walmart this afternoon to get glow sticks to make them!

The fair came to town last week and we had planned on going last Monday, but it rained! The weather was great today, so we headed out after soccer.After eating some fair food for lunch, we bought some tickets and let the boys do some fair rides.
Lincoln was excited about the car race, but Ethan decided to save his ticket to do the fun house again.
Lincoln kept turning around because he thought the girl behind him could pass him.
This evening, Ethan said, "Today was a BLAST!!!'

Ethan LOVES the bus! He has made such good friends at this school and at soccer. Luckily, he has a lot of these friends on his bus!
He screams "BYE" to his friends the whole way to the car (we have to drive to the bus stop).
Then he remembers that he has a mom and brother who have been missing him all day, and he RUNS to the car!
I love seeing this big smile when he gets to us!

Me: Are you going to marry someone beautiful or smart?
Link: I'm gonna marry someone who is beautiful AND smart.
Me: GOOD ANSWER!
Ethan: Like you, Mommy. You are beautiful and smart. Do you know why you are smart?
Ethan: Because you cook so good!
Me: Well, thanks Ethan!!! :)

BUT...she gave it RIGHT back! There was lots of tickling and teasing followed by lots of squeals and laughing!
Today when she had to leave, there were some sad fellas, but luckily we'll see her in only two months!
