We are loving fall!! School continues to go well for the kids! They love it, and they are doing very well according to their teacher at Parent-Teacher Conferences. I enjoyed attending their field trip to Post Family Farm earlier this month. Riding the bus with the kids was a riot! It was fun to put faces with names of their friends!
The girls finished up soccer today with a victory, and a goal scored by Sophie! Both of them learned so much and had a blast! Noah continues to love his 'football skills' class with Tom on Thursday nights. I was able to go watch once when the soccer practice was rained out! The kids have had such a wonderful cheering section this fall, Grandma and Grandpa Bonnema, Grandma and Grandpa Mosher, even Great-Grandpa Low made it to a game! It made the kids feel so special to have such fans!
We also enjoyed a wonderful weekend with my parents in town and another trip to Post Family Farm!
Today we were able to do something I have never done before..we picked concord grapes. It was amazing!! Beautiful, aromatic, and such fun. The kids were thrilled to use "snippers" to cut the grape clusters, and did a great job. In about 20 minutes we had picked 35 pounds. We look forward to making jam, pie, and juice tomorrow!
I hope you are all having a wonderful fall! Blessings!

Go State!! Go Tigers!!

We had a great weekend with so many wonderful moments!! The girls soccer game! MSU Victory!! The kids were able to spend time with my grandpa and my parents on Saturday night so Tom and I could go to the Tiger game. The Tigers lost, but came back ready to play and did win Sunday, so we are excited for the big game Tuesday! Sunday the kids went to a great camper show with my parents while Tom and I ran some errands. Sunday evening we had a wonderful birthday dinner for Joan and Steve! It was a busy, but fun filled weekend! Off to bed!! I'm chaperoning a field trip tomorrow!!!
