Dad and Audrey felt a little left out from our trip to the apple farm, so we went to another one this weekend. The highlight this time...the pony rides!! Natalie was soooo excited. Audrey was excited about the ponies too, but absolutely refused to sit on one. They had some animals to pet and feed too. The pigs were the cutest.
Natalie had her first fieldtrip, to the apple farm. I went along as a chaperone, along with just about every other kid's parent (can you tell we are all a little overexcited about our little ones :) Natalie's favorite part of the trip- riding the school bus. They also got to take a wagon ride out into the orchard and each pick one apple off an apple tree, to eat on the way home. We got a tour of the cooler and watched the machine that washes the apples. It was a beautiful day to be out in an apple orchard.
Thank you for all those "patient" "helpful" comments about how the video wasn't working (sarcasm added). Our computer is REALLY slow and doesn't always want to cooperate, so be patient. We decided to try YouTube. So here it is. As I said in my last post, we can thank genetics from dad and Uncle Tristan for this...we certainly don't TEACH her this stuff!

Omi and Papa were just asking what words Audrey can say now. I know, the video is dark, but I think it's too hilarious how Audrey tries her best to ride the horse, somewhat side saddle, but finally decides it just isn't working out and tells dad why. That's one useful word in her vocab!

We signed Natalie up for soccer this fall with her friend Audrey. It's a great program that actually tries to teach little ones how to play soccer, instead of just running around at games... as much as one can teach 3 & 4 yr olds how to play soccer, that is. Natalie loves it, and I think she looks darn cute in those tiny little shin guards. Here's a few shot from practice (that kick makes her look like she's got skills. Guys love girls with skills :) Her first game is this Saturday. (Thanks Auntie Terri and Uncle Tristan for the cool ball!)

Yes, my little Natalie started Preschool today- CRAZY!!! She goes to this cute school called Hand in Hand Learning Center Mon, Wed, & Fri mornings. As you can see in the picture, it's a house that was converted into a school. I love their little chalkboard in the front with messages to the parents. When I was taking a picture of her this morning, she had to get a picture of her cool new Dora backpack she picked out. She's very proud of it.
