too busy

I am not sure how many of you read my book and movie blogs, but I have to stop them for now. With school, I am just way to busy to keep up with them. Both of them were just too far behind to even catch them up. I started them more for myself, to keep track of what I watched and read. Right now, I am pretty much reading books for school. However on my break, I did manage to read The White Queen by Philippa Gregory. She is absolutely one of my favorite writers and I cannot wait to read the Red Queen too! So I'll just update my books and movies on here for now.

A little bit of Fall inspiration ...

I got the new Oprah Magazine in the mail today, as I was flipping through it, I found this gorgeous photo shoot with Mandy Moore.
I happen to love Mandy Moore and her style, and was completely inspired by the beautiful colors and patterns.

and this one is my personal favorite...

I love that skirt!

Lego League

Van and Petey have joined a Jr. Lego League team.

They are very excited and they are having lots of fun!
The first night they started talking about simple machines.The first one they learned about was a ramp and they had to make a teeter totters out of Lego's of course.
Second time they met, they learned about pulleys and had to make pulleys.
Then they learned that a zip cord was a pulley and they got to try one out!

here are the pictures of their pulleys...



here is Petey the first time on the zip cord

playing catch-up

Two week ago Petey went on a field trip here...

He said he really liked the owl!

Last weekend, My mom and stepdad took the kids here....

yep, they rode on one of those wagons!
The boys LOVED it. Van sat up front with the driver. All three boys loved feeding the animals. Ollie made a buddy with a baby camel. 
Tatum did not like the big animals, but she liked the small ones and she really liked the parrot, she stills talks about it.

Friday, Ollie went on a field trip here...

He had fun and enjoyed the wagon ride!
Tatum also went on a field trip Friday.
She headed to the Tipp City Park to look for signs of Fall. 
She came home with a big bag filled with leaves and acorns!!

Last Saturday we were in Coshocton to attend Josh's sister's wedding reception.
They were married in Indiana, where they live.

cute cousins
here is a picture of Tatum and Jodi's little girl Emily

so that is what we have been up to and what has been keeping us busy!

and a Happy Birthday to my wonderful Mom whose birthday was 10.10.10!!!!
I Love you Mom!!!
