I was lucky enough to be able to go with Brody and his class to Schnepf Farms for his first field trip. He was so excited, talked about for days before and after! We had a good group that wanted to do everything! We went to the pig races, went on rides, picked pumpkins, went on the train ride, pet the goats, go through the corn maze....long day, but a good one!
I decided to get an annual membership to the zoo, so these are pictures from a few visits. Brody had never been, and so I figured it would be a good thing we could do with him on days he had early release, etc... I didn't realize how much the older kids still love the zoo, including me. Maybe because I have been going to this zoo since I can remember? Not sure, but I love that my kids love to go, and even though Wesley doesn't look to happy in the picture below, he really did have a good time, just had to be cool for the picture!

Can you tell he loved brushing the goats hair? There's only one person I know who doesn't... sorry Kris, you're really missing out on some fun!
Cool new spot at the back of the elephants, you get much closer... to the smells and all!
Our visitors this trip... Carter Loar, Tanner & Jake Cardon, Melissa & Jaycee Worthen
(I love how happy Jaycee girl is in this photo... and chubs!)
No soccer for this little princess of ours, literally, she acts and demands everything princess! THere are days I love it, and their are days it is exhausting! I keep reminding her, it's just as important to be pretty on the inside, we'll see if it happens!
She loves dancing with most of the cousins her age and neighbors!

Munchkins- Chloe Church and Grace Kennedy
Kaitlyn is in the very middle of this picture, hard to find her sometimes, they all look alike!
Macy contines to get better and better! She is not afraid to get right in the middle of a group of players and get the ball, she has no fear! And this year, her team which range from age 10-12 were playing 13-14 year olds, girls AND boys. Some games it looked like she was up against a man, but she still got right in there, it was funny to see the mismatch. I look forward to watch her play many more years!
This was Brody's first time playing. This picture looks like he has great focus and dedication to the sport. This must have been a rare moment, because the kid seriously just got out there and paid no attention to the game, it was hilarious to watch, no rhyme or reason as to why he was out there running from end to end of the soccer field.
Oh yeah, there was a reason for all the running...... the after game treats!
Brig on the other hand is very focused and had a great season. He is very aggressive
