October Highlights

October came and went faster than I could even imagine!

Here's what we were up to!

Playdate at Klackles Orchard

We started Kirra in swim lessons and she's doing amazingly well!
It's a very aggressive/progressive class where they throw 'em in immediately on their first go.
There are sometimes tears, but she gets over and Ms. Sandi does a fabulous job of teaching!

One of my dearest friends, Abby Glover Carruthers, was home in October for a baby shower! This was definitely a celebration in SO many ways! We're certainly looking forward to meeting the little guy shortly!

with our BBF friends (Byrnes, Boyles, and Freudigmanns)

Alan was hired/chosen as the JV Boys and Girls soccer coach at East Kentwood! I finally remembered to take the camera to a home game to capture him in action! He ended the boy's season well and is now looking forward to the girl's season in the spring!

A Day at Meijer Gardens with the Byrne's

I did not take my camera to Denver when we went for Tate's 1st birthday, but we did go and we all got VERY sick with the stomach flu! Blah! We had to cancel Tate's birthday party and didn't get a lot of good quality family time! Kinda a bummer!

Luckily, Ann had planned to come to Michigan the following week for her 10th reunion at Hope College! She and the kiddos arrived on Wednesday and took of on Sunday! We had a great time playing, hanging out in Holland, and Ann got to reconnect with some of her friends, which was great! The kids had heaps of fun...but poor Alan got food poisoning, so he was stuck with his head in the toilet most of the weekend! Bummer!

(Meredith and Alexis Mick also attended Hope, so we met up for a quick Roscommon picture)

Kirra was Sleeping Beauty for Halloween. Daddy took the girls to our friend's Sam and Alexis' house to trick-or-treat with Eli and Nolan. Unfortunately, Alan did not take the camera, so we don't have pics! According to Alan, she had fun, but after 10 minutes was ready to be back in the warmth of the house again!
