The kiddos got to bounce on bounce houses (totally normal at a farm, right), pet goats, go for a tractor ride and a "hay ride" (only there was no hay), pick a pumpkin, listen to a story, have a picnic, go through a maze and just have fun.

In other excitement, I found a scorpion in my bathroom a couple nights ago. SCARY! Jacob was on the floor playing, I picked up the towell, and there it was. Of course, J reached for it, and I yanked him up so fast, I hurt his little arm. I killed it and flushed it. No, Pam, I didn't think to take pictures of creatures like you do. The next morning, I called the bug people, and they came to respray. I don't walk into my bathroom or closet without a light on now. Scary!

Jacob sat in my lap since I knew he couldn't sit still on his own. We were both draped in the capes. Sarah, Jacob's stylist, got started wetting that crazy hair. He wasn't too sure about it.
It took effort from Beth, Kevin AND me to keep Jacob facing the right way while Sarah cut his hair. Plus the paci and some goldfish. Now, Jacob has the patience of his father, and this was taking too long. He never cried, but he did swat Sarah's hand away once.
Finally, it was finished. Not perfect, but so handsome. Sarah put some gel in to style the stick up. Jacob wasn't too sure about that either. But, he was sooo happy to be done and just wanted to get down.
Here's my handsome little guy with his stylin 'do!

I love the amazement in her voice as she tries to understand that He is everywhere she looks, that He created everything. She'll ask about things He's made or not- people, clothes, witches (she's been watching a Halloween show), houses, trees.... She's learning that God created people, and sometimes people make things.
Even more awesome to her is that God knows everything and sees everything. She just can't understand how He knows everything she's doing and how many hairs are on her head. And, she likes to make sure that God does the same for everyone else. We mostly explain it as He loves us so much that he wants to know everything about us. Now, I tell her I love her, but I don't know the number of hairs on her head, so God is pretty smart.
When Beth prays, it may be a little goofy, but is the most sincere prayer I've ever heard. Oh, if grown-ups prayed like that, with all abandon of fancy words or what we should say... Ok, so last night was a great one "Dear God, thank you for our food. And thank you for my brother Jacob, I love him. Thank you for my daddy, I love him. Thank you for my mommy, I love her. Thank you for me, I love me. Thank you for my food. Amen" Priceless!

In other dance news, she's thinking about quitting dance and signing up for soccer. I'm trying to change her mind. She LOVES dancing. I don't think she'll like getting sweaty and the whole game that is soccer. But, we'll see. We've paid for October, and by golly, she's going to finish October.
