Happy Fall!

We recently partook in some small group fall festivities. With people being sick and busy, it was a small small group, but it was good times hanging out with our friends Jen and Josh and Amanda. I should blog about this later, but we really like our church!

The boys- showing their knife skills

The girls- cleaning the grossness

SFC representing!

Happy Fall!

I'm going to aim for 6 p.m. tomorrow. It would be nice not to leave and return home in the dark :)

So excited!

In about a month give or take 23 days....

Eric and I will be busy hosting our friends Julie and Chase!

And in case you haven't picked up on it- we are so excited! The only thing that would make their visit better is if we refuse to take them back to the airport...

Can't wait friends!

and seriously... we need to take a new picture! This one is almost a year old!

Left foot red, Right hand yellow...

What game were we playing???


What a great game! We put on the retro music and enjoyed two good games before deciding the game was probably designed for people under five foot. For those of you wondering, Eric was the champion of both games... (and I was hoping the yoga would pay off!) The thing I'm most excited about though... using Sarah's idea to play Twister with the letter sounds with my students at school!

We Saw the Fergusons!

And it was great. And the kids are so grown-up. Wow. We wish we could see them more often!

Makin the Grade

This was so funny. My co-teacher and I deemed it blog-worthy...

Our first graders are notorious for forgetting to grab their coats at the end of the day. Instead of trying to get their attention by saying "Who's is this??" and getting 29 "Not mine"s, we pretend to try and put on their coats. This always gets their attention as well as a laugh.

On Friday afternoon, I picked up a girl's sweater and said, "Hmm... size small 7/8... I don't know if that will fit me or not." As the owner of the sweater came to retrieve her belonging, one of our little boys with quite the personality said, "Mrs. Anderson it would fit you because you are so skinny!" No comments there, but I had to laugh.
