Our sweet friends from Paris came to visit her mother in Collierville. Thankfully, she and the boys and the sweet Baby G were able to visit with us. We went to Shelby Farms to play and then we grabbed dinner at pizza buffet.
Friday while the big boys were at school we visited a Pumpkin Farm. The boys got to go on a hayride, a train ride, pick a pumpkin, play on bouncers, toss a football and more. It was so fun!
Now, for my parenting fail of the week...I mean day. Jack had this thing at his school called a Ram Run. (They are the Oak Rams.) He collected donations...which means I wrote a check...and then they completed this "run". I had it on my calendar. I informed Fred that we needed to be there. I had the time of the run down for 9:40-10:20. In actuality, it was from 9:10-9:40. We got to the school at 9:37. Fail on my part. Whoops. I did capture this sweet picture the one time he ran past me.
Andrew was asleep when it all happened. Clayton saw it coming and reached out to hold him in his seat. Be still my heart. They do love each other.
While the boys were away Dash the dog kept running out of our fence and terrorizing our neighbors. I got tired of chasing him down. So, my friend and I went to Pet Smart and bought a dog run. He really seemed to enjoy it
Sunday our sweet friends came to church with us. It was the icing on the cake for me!
Then my parents, their friends, Fred and Renee and the above pictured people came to our house for lunch. It was such a blessing!
You have friends in your life that are just friends. Then there are a few friends that you consider family. That is the case with this crew. Monday morning was so lonely. I kept thinking she would call for us to do some fun activity together. Alas, their fall break was over and school was back in session. Boo.
After church Andrew wanted to ride with our friend that's a little older than him. He was being pretty ugly. Fred took him aside and told him he was probably hurting W's feelings. Andrew looked at Fred and said, "But Dad, I'm wittle I don't know these things!" That "wittle" boy will turn five this Sunday and I can't talk about it. Hopefully, I'll be able to post a few picture to remember the day. Seriously, where has the time gone?? I'm so glad I write all this down, but honestly I wish I could carry a video camera to record more. All of them say and do some of the funniest things. Sometimes I wish I could just bottle it all up...and then they start fighting/arguing and the moment's over. Ha!
