294/365: Life's Comforts - Quilts and Books

Gareth finished the COMPLETE Calvin and Hobbes collection in about a week (9-10 years worth!)  At Brian's job's break room, someone left a bunch of free to take OLD comics (Heathcliff, BC, Wizard of ID).  Brian brought about 30 of those home. I seriously thought they would collect dust (who reads these anymore?!), but Gareth has been flying through those as well! Isn't Wizard of ID like an OLD MAN comic strip?! I find him chuckling out loud and he often says, "hey, mom, listen to this"  and reads a strip to me.  CRAZY old man in a kid's body!  lol  Zane is now on Book 3 of Calvin and Hobbes.  Lil' Iris has improved with her reading and she is trying so hard now to increase her skills.  She is reading Down on the Farm in this pic.  I love these kids!

292/365: Negangard's Pumpkin Patch

 We took our annual trip to Negangard's Pumpkin Patch today.  Sadly, Gareth was not feeling well and stayed home with my mom and slept the entire time we were gone.  I got a carving pumpkin for him and took a pic when we got home.

We all attended a Girl Scout Family Fall Fest at Camp Kiwanis in Mahomet today.  There was pumpkin decorating, hot dog roasting, eating, trail walking, and a bunch of games.  We had a good time.

290/365: Friday Night Fun

Gareth went over to a friend's house Friday evening.  He was picked up in a big rig and got to ride over in it.  He enjoyed it.
