Wow this year is just getting away from me. If you want to see August.. go here.
I can’t believe it’s Labor Day already… summer is gone. We didn’t really do a vacation this year so it doesn’t seem like it can be September already…but it is. Time is marching on. In August we had my 20 year class reunion. We went to the picnic in the afternoon and skipped the totally overpriced dinner ($40 a person for a golf course meeting room… get real Class of ’89 Divas) This was the first reunion that I had gone to. Since reconnecting with some folks through FaceBook I decided I couldn’t fly under the radar any longer. I got to catch up with one friend I hadn’t seen since graduation… she was and still is the nicest person. I was glad I got to catch up with her. The odd thing about going back home, especially during the annual town celebration, is no one seems to know how to react to the fact that my son looks so much like my brother. It’s funny to see them whisper it around my Mom… like she hasn’t noticed the resemblance. I love watching her handle it with such tact and grace. One of the town busy bodies whispered to me, with Mom 3 feet away, “Oh my, he looks like Brad” Mom turned around, smiled, patted Robert on the head and said, “As it should be”.
Robert is growing up so fast. He’s decided he would rather eat at the big table than his high chair so we got him a booster chair. He LOVES sitting at the table. I love having our meals together as a family.
Last weekend we met my Aunt and Uncle at the Legends to do a bit of shopping. We picked out Robert’s Halloween costume… he will be a dragon this year. He absolutely LOVES his costume. We also got some new snuggly jammies. I love a boy in snuggly jammies.
Last week was Monkey week in Robert’s preschool class. Tuesday morning we headed out the door with our stuffed monkey…
Unfortunately it seems the Monkey Flu is going around the preschool so we wound up back home a few hours later with a sick little guy. I stayed home Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday Jim stayed home with him. He probably could have gone back to school but I just wanted to keep him out of the germ pool for another day.
Finally, Labor Day weekend got here. Saturday morning we went to City Market. Robert got to have a cinnamon roll for breakfast and loved it.
Saturday night we went to a party at my adopted brother’s house. My mom and aunt and uncle were there too. Robert was sporting some of his new clothes and his new hair cut so I snapped a few pictures in the front yard before we left. My little ham should be a model.
Today we got up and headed out to do a little shopping. We wound up out by Deanna Rose Farmstead and decided it would be a shame to not stop since the weather was so gorgeous. And of course, we cannot deny the Mayor of Goat-Ville the opportunity to see his loyal subjects. This kid is crazy about goats.
He kept telling the goats to sit for their treats (like we do with Harley). I couldn’t believe it when this goat actually sat.
The baby goats that you could bottle feed had apparently been well fed today. They weren’t super interested in the bottles. Robert went around to each goat with his bottle in hand asking, “Juice???” This little goat he was trying to wake up so see if it wanted “juice”.
Yes, my son kisses goats.
This goat wanted Robert’s attention and grabbed his shirt.
After the farm we went and had gelatto…. yummy!
Robert fell in love with the toy baby grand piano at the toy store. I think he thought he was on Jack’s Big Music Show.
