I had been doing so well at keeping up with my blog...taking lots of pictures, posting often and just generally keeping up with the documentation of our family's life. October is obviously not starting out as well, but I'm trying! Life seems to be extra busy for us during this "season of change." Fall is always a time of transition and this year is no exception. Kyle started a new job last week, which has been a big adjustment for us all. Thankfully this new opportunity was prayerfully considered, and I do believe it was the best thing for our family. It's a great change for Kyle, a chance to learn some new skills and do something new with his career. It's been an adjustment for all of us, as Kyle has been travelling but we are hopeful that it will lead to great things! Thankfully Nana flew in on Saturday, so the kids are loving the special company and I am constantly grateful for the extra set of hands. My mom is pretty amazing, and I feel so blessed to have her with us this week.
Two weekends ago, we were gearing up for Daddy's trip but managed to squeeze in some fun.
Brady and Auntie Val came over for lunch and joined us for Carter's soccer game. Carter scored two goals, so he was over the moon! How cute is this little man? And he's so mellow - wow! He's growing up so fast!
Saturday afternoon, we headed out to Hillsboro. Grandma and Papa had invited the kids to spend the night and they were all too eager to accept. It's always a special time when they get to sleep over.
Carter and Papa picked lots of apples off the tree and Grandma made homemade applesauce. Yum!
While the kiddos were enjoying a special night with their grandparents, Kyle and I enjoyed a date night. We did a few errands and then headed to dinner. It was great to be able to have some good conversation and really talk about the upcoming changes. It was a fantastic evening and I'm so glad that we were able to have some time together.
