This fall has been a little bit crazy. Mostly because I'm still trying to figure out how to keep up with all of the details of our lives as well as get us out to do fun things as a family of six. I'm thankful that we were able to take the kids to the pumpkin patch one night after work. They had a blast and picked out 3 of the biggest pumpkins I've ever seen. I'm really hoping to skip the carving process this year. They each carved a pumpkin while at their Gabby's so I'm hoping that will fulfill the need to carve. We'll just have to wait and see...

Just another day on the farm

Here's a picture of Luke and some friends from school affectionately known at our house as "the twins".

They dressed like farmers for their class at school and looked so cute!!

Take it to the goal...

I feel like that's what I spend most of my Saturday mornings saying. Luke is playing soccer for the Y this year and he LOVES it! He has wanted to play since he was 2 and Kate played for the Y. Every Saturday morning we head out at 8:30 for him to play. Luckily it's only two minutes from the house! It has been so exciting to watch him. He's not afraid to be aggressive and has made a goal at almost every game. He's always so proud! Here is a picture of one of his goals today. Chris was really sick this morning so I had a neighbor watch Caleb so that I didn't have both little boys by myself at the game. It was so nice AND I was actually able to take pictures for the first time!

Way to go Luke!!

Some pictures...

I don't really have much to report from the home front. I feel like our routine is getting better everyday. John Patrick tends to like to be held a lot during the day(that's a problem with 3 others and lots to do) but we're making it through. He's a good night time sleeper and I'm so thankful! It's definitely an answer to prayer! He's 7 weeks old and growing like crazy. Here are just a few pictures. I'm hoping to have something more interesting soon...

I just love a sleeping baby. Even in that carseat, he looks so peaceful.

There is no shortage of love from the siblings! Luke always seems oblivious to the fact that John Patrick might not be happy. He always says "He really loves me a lot!" while John Patrick is screaming. He's one lucky baby!!
