So glad you're here with me today! We've got a pretty standard day in store around these parts. No trips, appointments, etc. Tyler has archery later but that's about it! (thankfully!)
Kendall and I enjoyed a very fun evening at our Mother/Daughter book club last night. The other children and parents are so lovely, fun and easy to be around. My kind of crew for sure. We joined the club in July and there are about 6 mother/daughter pairs. They are all from a town next to us and the girls all go to the same school and I think they're all in the same grade (one grade ahead of Kendall). I must admit that I was a little nervous joining as I did not want Kendall to feel like odd man out but the children in the club are so nice, welcoming and energetic. Each child gets a turn to pick a book. The book is available at the library or you can purchase a copy yourself. We have one month to read the book and then the child whose turn it was to choose the book prepares a list of questions, a theme related craft and a snack for when we meet one month later. So far we've read 100 Cupboards, The Lemonade Wars, Mandy (Kendall's pick), The Benedict Society (we're still reading it) and this coming month's book is called The Railway Children.

Ari went into his crib for a little rest while the children continued working on their research papers. They are coming along so nicely!!
Tyler had archery this afternoon and we were surprised by a wonderful visit by Grandma Sue and Popeye!! They were in the area and decided to swing by so they could catch Ty's archery lesson. Ty felt so proud to have them there watching him. Kendall, Ari and I came as well so he had a big cheering section! GO TY!!
