A day at the beach

For Aunt Jessica

Our Aunt Jessica is having surgery tomorrow to remove some pretty nasty stuff she's been battling for a while now. We are praying God's peace to be upon her and for quick healing for her body.

The signs read as follows:
From our little hands to our tiny toes,

From our wiggly hips to our silly nose,

We want you to know that when you're feeling blue,

Our little hands, they're praying for you!!!

We love you Aunt Jessica!!!

Flu Shots

Bradley had the afternoon off today so we loaded the kids up and took them for their flu shots! We saw a wicked motorcycle in the hospital parking lot that looked like a dragon!! BC insisted I take a picture of it! They all did so well with their shots we made a trip to the store and Starbucks (for us) after it was over!!

I interviewed a couple gals this morning for a babysitting job. I had planned to use drop in care on occassion since arriving to the island, but it's nearly impossible to get a spot, much less 3 slots AND they are only open until noon. Not a huge help if I actually need to be somewhere or get things done. So, a babysitter it is. I have interviewed a handful of people now, found 1 for evenings, but I need someone for the daytime when I have appointments or errands to run. So enter a couple younger girls, man they made me feel OLD though. I think I am going to go with the 1st girl I met. She was very sweet, pregnant with her 1st baby, and new to the island. While I liked the other girl, the deal breaker was that she's a smoker. Although I doubt she'll have much interaction with MJ (since she'll be at school), I just can't run the risk for her. Our new daytime sitter is Tiffany. Super sweet, young, but she's available every couple of weeks to hang out with the littles while I run errands during the day. I can't WAIT!!

And at the end of the day Bradley & I split the kids up. He took the boys to the PX to check out the toys AND I took the girls grocery shopping. MJ had the chance to go look at toys too, but she wanted to hang out with me. Got our groceries for the week and had a blast doing it!

Pumpkin Patch

The EFMP hosted an event at the local pumpkin patch! It was a lot of fun after we eventually made it there...I got soooo lost trying to find it! I was ready to give up when we finally found it!

At the splash pad!

Bradley dropped us off on his way into work and we trekked home, but not before playing the morning away and enjoying our 1st day of fall break with MJ! Man, I love this kid and I'm so glad she's home this week to play with us!
