Nathan has recently become obsessed with Legos. We have a big box of the basic bricks and he will make airplanes, cars and buildings for hours. He can get on my iPad, look up instructions on a Lego app and make various things with little to no help.
Jeff splurged and got him a Star Wars Lego set (ages 7-9) after they finished watching all 6 Star Wars movies together. Nathan laid out all the pieces on the kitchen table, followed the step-by-step instructions and completed the space ship in about an hour. He wanted no help from me or Jeff.
Enjoy the pictures of the build. He is so proud of himself.

Sleeping on the floor

For more than a week Norah refused to sleep in her bed. She made a mat in the corner of her room, put all her toys and books there & slept there every night and nap.
Then...all of a sudden, it was over. The novelty wore off and she was back in her bed like nothing happened.
Such a funny girl.

Who needs a bed when you can sleep on the floor.

Norah's trip to Mackinaw

Over the holiday weekend, Norah went to visit her Mamaw and Papaw. This trip coincided with the annual Mackinaw Bridge walk so she went with them to Michigan. She had a fume time camping in the RV and strolling across the Mackinaw bridge with thousands of other walkers.

Southeast Christian Church has an annual festival on Labor Day. We missed it last year. This year, Norah was in Michigan with Mamaw and Papaw, Jeff was working so Nathan and I went to the festival.
It was a free event that included lots of bouncies, carnival games, rides, yummy goodies, music, crafts and even a petting zoo. After a week record high temperatures near 100 degrees, the weather dramatically improved and was nice and cool for the festival. Nathan and I had such a good time.
