Busy Day

We woke up bright and early and headed out to Flatonia Texas where Czhilispiel was being held.  David and Mandi were competing and we had a great time hanging out, riding rides and walking around  

Later that night, we met up with Matt, Amber and Addy to Trunk Or Treat at the Nifty Fifties Car show.  The kids got so much candy and had the best time.

E Track

Colton's school is doing something called E Track this semester.  The kids get to choose fun activities and each Wednesday they go to their own groups to work.  Everyone in the school participates (kinder does it a little different) and all of the adults in the school run a group.  Mrs. Joyce, the nurse is Coltons E Track teacher.  
  Colton's group is called Sticky Note Art.  
Here is his first creation.  
He has enjoyed it so much!!!!!

Pumpkin Patch 2016

You'd think after all these years, taking pictures would get easier...It doesn't!
They still don't wanna stop and look! :)
They promised me 5 pictures! 

When we got home they painted pumpkins and we hung out with all the neighbors.  

 We also ended up grilling on the baby grill.  Zak sure does love this thing!

Sunday Street Cookout

A morning of trimming trees turned into a street cook out! 
This is why we don't move!  We love our neighbors so much and are so blessed by them.  These are the moments our kids will always remember!

I am a PROUD momma!  I am proud of how hard Colt is working this year.  He got his first progress report a couple weeks ago full of STRAIGHT As!  He works hard for that.  Its not always the easiest to push him to his fullest potential but he works hard to be where he is. 

Last week, he started reading tutoring with Mrs. Green.  I was a bit surprised to get a note for tutoring the week after a straight A progress report.  I spoke with his teacher and she said he was right "on the bubble" and she just wanted to help him a little bit. I was so happy to hear that.  
Colton is smart.  Really smart.  But, he needs to be pushed to do his best and have confidence that he CAN do it.  
(And, working with mommy some days is impossible!)
He's had great teachers so far but I'm so happy Mrs. Green sees his struggle and wants to work on it early.  
He was excited about gong to tutoring and actually really enjoyed it! 

This since work cracked me up! only minus 2.  must have been for his creativeness...
"Plants don't eat people food because they don't have mouths to eat a humburger." 

 And, this guy.  
He's doing great in school he is having a really good time, enjoying his teacher and his new classmates and is a little sponge!  He is learning so much and loving it! 

Here he is this weekend at a birthday party for Brennan one of his new buddies at school.  
I'm so glad he's making new friends and loving school!
