This is the house where Maddie attends preschool (and yes, there is much more to this very large home, it just wouldn't fit in the picture):
This is Maddie and her friend Jacob showing us what they like to do at Preschool:
And this is Garen playing peek-a-boo on the ride home:

Garen was trying so hard to find an airplane in the sky or something that was making that loud noise. Can you hear the thunder?
Maddie really loved playing out in the rain puddles with her rain jacket on.

Andy taking the training wheels off.
She was getting the hang of it, but did not want Andy to let go of her.
Andy teaching her how to put her feet down so she doesn't tip over.
She did pretty well, but we're not there yet.
After giving a few really go tries we went back to training wheels until she's ready to try again. We did move the training wheels up higher so hopefully she will learn to balance better. I'm sure she'll get it before Winter, if not there's always next year.
PS. thanks for the outfit and hair things Alisha!

Andy left early this morning to go fishing for the day. Garen was up at 7am and we had breakfast and got ready for the day. We left the house about 9:30 to take Maddie to gymnastics.
Maddie's friends left about 6:30, we ate dinner then went on a little walk.

Garen and Maddie playing outside this morning.
Garen was getting very upset that he couldn't get the ball in the hoop (because it was to tall). So we moved the hoop up against the stairs so Garen could stand on the steps and put the ball in. He played with that basketball for about an hour! Maddie was busy shooting the big ball with the water gun.
She looks innocent here, but you should see her when she is using that gun. Yikes! She takes after her dad-Andy took her dove hunting a week ago and she loved it!
He might need to grow a few more inches before he goes pro.

....pulling all the pillows off the couches and covering himself with them.
...Climbing on and in everything you could possible imagine
...and his newest accomplishment, climbing up and sliding down the slide without falling or hitting his head at the end. He practiced this for about an hour, during which he fell off the ladder, slid down head first, and bonked his head on every inch of the slide. But he didn't cry once and was very proud when he started making it all by himself!
...and of course, Garen's been making us smile and laugh everyday!

Garen caught a glimpse of Andy with the video camera, so he had to stop and check it out. That's why we never get great videos of him because as soon as he sees the video camera he stops what he was doing and wants to touch it.
