Last Wednesday night, Nathan fell at church playing ball with some boys and hurt his arm. We began treating it like a sprain, but after a few days of no improvement, we decided that we better take him to the doctor for Xrays. Well, it seems he broke his radius bone and will be in a cast for the fall. He has a soft cast on right now until the swelling goes down, but after 10 days we will go back for a hard cast.

Essie turned 9 this past weekend! We had a bonfire at church and a tinkerbell cake! She also had a few girls come over for a sleepover.Making a wishEsther and the girls!The next morning.Esther with her tinkerbell toys
One thing we have added to school this year is music lessons. we found a wonderful teacher in Mt. Airy that will teach all three kids ( and me and Greg!) for an hour together and call it a group lesson. We all have a different instrument we are learning and are trying hard to get our practice times in each week. Sometimes our house is pretty noisy, but it is fun!Esther Hope, the fiddler

For the past 11 years, my dad and I always go to a Virginia Tech football game together. We have only missed one year and that was because I was largely pregnant with Esther Hope during football season. So He was able to get us tickets to the ECU/Va Tech game that happened to be the same weekend of my mom's birthday. After the game, we all went out to Kabuki's for a yummy dinner to celebrate Nana! It was fun. The boys stayed home because Nathan had a baseball game ( that is why they are not an any pictures) :)
Abigail is playing volleyball this year for the Forsyth Home Educators middle school team. She is loving it. The team is made up of some of the sweetest girls and they have an amazing coach, Ms. Carla. Abby is a setter and also co captain.
Time out!Esther and Nathan have made friends with the other player's little brothers and sisters too!

I am taking this Monday post to thank God for all the blessings in my life right now and also to express how thankful I am for all the upcoming things I am looking forward to this fall. Fall is my ALL TIME favorite time of the year! There are so many fun things to do and see. When the air starts turning just a tiny bit cool and crisp in the morning, my heart just swells with anticipation for the season before us. So here is my list..some are just simple and silly..others are life changing, but I am thankful for each and everyone of them:
