The Sound of Freedom

That's what it's called around here. The Sound of Freedom. And most days, I agree. I get much pride in seeing and hearing the F/A-18's roaring by overhead. Knowing they're training for some important mission. Knowing what B does makes a difference in the world.
But today, it's just annoying.
For many months, the air station has been repairing the runways. Apparently the one (I won't pretend to know the runway number) that points directly over our house is now repaired. Apparently EVERY jet at the air station has used it today REPEATEDLY to take off over our house.
And while I'm proud most days, today I'm just annoyed. Maybe it's because it makes me miss B more. Maybe it's because I'm feeling under the weather and just want to rest quietly. Maybe it's because IT'S JUST REALLY ANNOYING...

Pumpkin Patch

Today I accompanied Cadey and her class to a local farm for a field trip. We enjoyed a hay ride, a corn maze, a picnic, and seeing veggies on the vine. We even got to pick our pumpkin and cut it from the vine. Other than being exhausted from spending a WHOLE day with 25 kindergartners (WHEW!) I had a great time!!

Strong Guy

After his bath one night when Matthew was getting ready for bed, he came in to show me his muscles saying, "I'm getting to be as big and strong as Daddy!"

What a little man...

Through several people, I found a website called Yearbook Yourself. It was a lot of fun. Here's my favorite --

It's from the 90's so maybe that's why I look so good --- I remember those times well, though I think my hair was MUCH higher than this!

Here's another good one. Momma -- we could have been best of friends in high school too!!
