Fall Time in Michigan

Well, for those that didn't know, we are here in Midland MI right now as we are here for my mom's brain surgery that she will be having tomorrow.  We have been up here for a week enjoying the time before my mom has to recover from her surgery.  While we have been here, we have seen friends and family we haven't seen for a while and done some fall things that we miss here in Michigan.  We have gone to the pumpkin patch, and of course our favorite, Baynes in Freeland.  There we ate Cider Donuts and had warm apple cider.  I sure miss the season up here even though it is really cold.  It has hailed a couple times since we have been here but you can just smell the fall time in the air.  I miss that.  Here are just a few pics of some of the fun we have had up here.  Thanks for all the prayers for my mom as she has her surgery tomorrow and her quick recovery.

Bryson's Science Project

We finally finished up Bryson's science project for a science fair I signed him up for in November. He made sugar crystals and then watched them grow. One was "seeded" meaning had been soaked in water and rolled in sugar and the other one was not. Now we just have to learn all the science type stuff of why that happened and so forth and then put the presentation together. I think he had fun with it.

The only other thing going on really is getting ready to leave for Michigan. We got all the sweaters and winter stuff down from the basement. We even had to go buy baby girl a new coat. We are looking forward to seeing everyone. I've been getting a bunch of car stuff together so we can have an unconventional school in the car ont he way there. We might as well since we'll just be sitting for two days :). It will be good to get away for a bit and the fall is my favorite time of year in Michigan.

Keep praying about our house selling. We've had it now for two years and we'll be putting it back up on the market in March since we have renters in it right now. We've had quite the ordeal with our home insurance company so we have to go up and make a few repairs to get it insurance qualified. It seems to be such a burden but everything in life we can learn from. The thing I've learned the most is that God is in control of every situation...He knows our needs and is faithful to supply our needs. I'm so thankful for that today and have to remind myself of that truth as I trust Him for our future.

Backyard Fun!

A few years ago we bought the boys this Power Wheels Monster truck and it is still going.  I had to do a little fixing on it this weekend and it now only goes forward, not backwards, but the boys still love playing with it.  The back of it is just big enough for AJ to fit in it so she just sat in it and let the boys drive her around the yard.  It was really fun to sit back and watch them play.  The weather is getting actually nice enough to go outside without having to drip with sweat.  The nights are really getting nice.  Pretty much everyday now, the boys want to go play in the backyard, which is good for us cause they need to get outside and burn some energy.

Bryson's New Haircut

Bryson finally got his haircut today. It looks really cool...however the only way we can duplicate it is to put gel in it and blow dry it every time. I never thought about blow drying my boy's hair but I guess that's the cost of fashion!
