First Week in the Jade Room

We finally got around to taking our "First Week of School" pictures with the kids, and their new teacher Tanya. We can't believe that this time next year they'll be in Kindergarden!

Heritage Day

We always love our town's small Heritage Day celebration. We explored all the exhibits, and Coraline worked hard to turn corn kernels into corn meal.

We then had fun playing with lots of old-timey toys.

Miss Sharon's Music Camp

This week we enrolled the triplets in a music camp, run by the music teacher from school. They had lots of fun, and it was a nice transition for them, as school starts in just a few weeks.

Halloween Costumes

Today we tried on our Halloween costumes. We decided to have the girls be dragons, and Arthur would be a knight. We're still working on his costume, and Coraline decided her dragon costume was a bit too small, so we had to take it back to the store. Luckily we still have time.

Great Road Encampment

The kids and their cousins had fun witnessing a recreation of 18th century life along the Great Road. Axe-throwing and seeing the flint-lock muskets fired were their favorite activities.

The Big Birthday Party

The kids' first real birthday party was quite a success! The pirate theme was a lot of fun.

Face painting turned the guests into scary pirates, monsters, and a pumpkin.

The kids then followed a map and searched for buried treasure in the two sandboxes.

Fun at Gymnastics

Throughout the summer, Pop Pop's been taking the kids to open playtime at our local gymnastics.

The trampoline is their favorite.

The kids love it, and run around frantically trying to play on all the equipment at the same time.

And Arthur learned how to "skin the cat."

Happy Fourth Birthday!

Though we're having the big party on Saturday, we couldn't resist celebrating the triplets' fourth birthday today with cupcakes in ice cream cones.

And Betty wanted to show off her new piggy bank and her cupcake necklace.

And then everyone got playmobil pirate ships for their birthday, putting them all in the mood for their pirate-themed party this weekend.
