Flashback Friday: What We've Been Doing Via Instagram

We've been super busy this month which has left me little time for blogging and even less time editing pictures! Here's a glimpse of what we've been up to

The boys and Grace taking a break during our walk around the wetlands

riding in jeeps with our best friends :)


playing with Graham and Lucy

enjoying the Farmer's Market with Daddy

we've hung out with our blog buddies

some motorcycle riding 

I made my easy pumpkin muffins (w/spice cake this time) for MOPS and Beef Stew for our soup exchange...but I had a horrible J Simpson moment and put 2 of the soups in the & freezers DO NOT MIX! 

We went hiking in Sewanee

nightly snuggles with Daddy

Discovery Center fun

more swinging

Mama has driven to Franklin twice this week for interviews and the views just kill me

We've been tired from all the fun

So What Wednesday

I'm linking up with Shannon over at Life After I Dew for So What Wednesday!! It's been awhile but I'm excited to get back into it!

Today I'm Saying So What:

  • If I've been in a major blogging and life funk
  • If I fit into a pair of size 8 pants from JCrew & then put on 3 other pairs of the same size and they all fit love/hate relationship with JCrew continues
  • I'm freaking about my upcoming Turkey Trot back home over Thanksgiving....
  • If Hudson whines anymore I might cut my ears off
  • If Mack doesn't know it yet but I'm making Velveeta, beef, and rotel dip Saturday night...that shit is good!
  • If this whole going back to work thing is exciting and sad at the same time...I am gonna miss my little man
  • If the amount of dog hair on my bedroom carpet is insane and I just vacuumed two days ago

31 Days of Lessons Learned: Day 16

Fall is finally here and one of my favorite fall activities to do with my preschoolers was leaf rubbings! Hudson and I set out for a nature walk and I had him pick out different leaves that were on the ground. We talked about how they different, ie: color, size, shape, etc. We then went back to the house and I showed him how to do the leaf rubbing.  As you will see Mommy ended up doing most of the work as Hudson became very interested in two big rocks...oh well, I had fun at least : )

31 Days of Lessons Learned: Errr I Skipped A Few

All right, all right, I've slacked off on the 31 more!!! I could rattle off a ton of excuses but I won't since they don't matter.

Last week we had a pumpkin themed playdate at our friend Ben's house. The kids wore their costumes, made pumpkins, had pumpkin themed treats, and even got to put their hands inside a pumpkin! Hudson had a blast although he chose not to dig in the pumpkin.

Ok, so this week I will be much better about documenting our learning adventures....if not you can yell at me ;)

31 Days of Lessons Learned: Day 9

3 days a week the Discovery Center has a parent and tot class at 9am that Hudson and I love to go to. They have a wonderful retired teacher who teaches the little class then we do an art project and have snack.

We went today and Ms. Joy actually added another activity called Ms. Joy's Corner where she works with the kids on letters and numbers.

 In this activity H put golf tees into the numbered holes by counting and then I asked him to take out different ones.

Here Ms. Joy showed him a flash card, he had to say the number then find the corresponding number and place it on the sheet in the right place

This activity was putting lower case and upper case letters together

This was a big dice with letters on it! Hudson would throw it up in the air and then tell me the letter that landed up and the sound that letter makes.

Simple matching game!

Upstairs in the Center they had this great exhibit that had turtle shells, life cycles, and eggs for the kids to check out

Sometimes we all need to get out of the house so make sure to check your local area for things to do with your toddler!
