She also told me something was terrific! this morning. I ooh'd and ahhh'd so much over her proper use of the word, I couldn't even begin to tell you what was so awesome.
I'm sad to see this past week fly by. AGAIN. Everything is moving so terribly fast - Ella's vocabulary, the pre-school year, work, life. We are enjoying it but w-o-w-z-a I wish I had a 'freeze' button.
Topping out all news this week is my parents' big move.
We had our first field trip with pre-school this past week. On a particularly brisk, windy morning we hit a sweet little farm. Ella had perhaps the worst sleep in a year the night prior to this field trip. She spent a lot of time whining about the stinky animals (she is my kid), sucking on P-Man and ignoring her classmates. I had a blast, however. We had a personal tour from the owner, went on a hayride and picked out pumpkins. She gave up a few smiles before it was over.

|Best Milk Moustache Ever!|
|Hayride fun with James.|
|FINALLY warming up to this farm thing.|
|So many choices for such a little thing.|
|Sebastian and Ella. She only speaks of two classmates. James and Sebastian. Boys. I'm guessing it is the mutual love for cars.|
Speaking of painting, we are in the midst of painting our own living room.
With a three year old underfoot...
Including the three year old's toys....
Both of us working full-time....
I'll leave it at that.
Larry has been working all summer on a huge front yard project. I can't do it justice but what started as a simple walk-path with sandstone and gravel turned into a major excavation of tree root removal. All by hand with one heavy axe.
His helper has come on the scene now to make sure the stones are in order. I walked out the front door to check on them and she said, "I don't need to see you. I have my listening ears on." Sneaky way to be sassy, don't you think?
Have a great week! ~H
