Best Shot Monday: Weekend Snapshots

Our “Island Hopping Papa” came home yesterday.  I hope that he will do a post about his time in the Grand Cayman Islands.   From the sounds of it all, it was a great time filled with hard work, awesome sights, good food, and–at times–high class accomodations.  Regardless, it was nice to be able to see, hear, and touch him.  His homecomings are always some of our favorite times.

The weather has been kind of cold, but the kids are loving it.  They’ve been playing on our hill, jumping on the trampoline, and kicking around the soccer ball.   I really do love fall down here in Georgia.  To me–a born and raised Buffalonian–I am quite comfortable in the cooler temps.   I think the kids are, too.

Oh, how they both need a nail clipping!

The other thing that happened yesterday was that we brought in and put our new table together.  The delivery men were quite happy NOT to do it on Friday when I told them my husband wanted to do it himself.

I feel like this table represents a new phase of our lives.   The old table was purchased in early 2002 and it has seen many meals, books, card games, holiday feasts,  school lessons, craft sessions, gun cleanings, you name it!    This new table is so different.  To me it represents the growth of our family.   In 2002 we had two pre-schooles and one toddler, and much instability.  In 2008 we have three well-rounded BIG kids, a smart-as-all-get-out-almost-two-year-old, and we are expanding on stable ground.   This table makes me feel good.

Goodbye old table!  You served us well.
