I've been to the pumpkin patch with my kids, more times than I can count. Yesterday I went with Lorelei on her last class field trip to the pumpkin patch.
|Mommy time with Lorelei.|
|My sweet girl!|
I've been with Bailey 3 times, Savannah once, Jonas twice and this was Lorelei's 3rd trip. One of the very first times I ever took the kids to the pumpkin patch was to that exact one. Savannah was 5 months and Bailey was about to turn 3. I could literally still picture them there amongst all the pumpkins...they looked something like this...
|Savannah's first Halloween, 5 months old|
|The beginning of Bailey hating to have his picture taken!!! At Love Creek Orchard's Fall Festival.|
|He was a happy guy and sometimes even "cheese-d" it up for the camera.|
Tonight I watched Bailey perform at his first high school concert, tall, cool and handsome. A bit of a ladies man, the girls definitely like him. In fact, I did not even see him interact with any other boys, just girls! I got a bit teary eyed, because I could so easily picture that sweet boy in the picture above. That very same sweet boy is now a young man about to be 15 in 8 days!!
There's those moments that help you to mark an ordinary day, with a special something that makes it extraordinary. Tonight's concert, yesterday's pumpkin patch and this...
|They've been playing together from the very beginning...|
|These two...besties, always together. Jonas was teaching her to play chess last night.|
