Glasses and bulldozers..Oh My!

It's fall break around here, which means that the kids are out of school for the week and we get to take advantage of the beautiful Fall weather!! Well, it hasn't started out so beautiful, but here's hoping for sunshine and low temps for the remainder of the week. We also get a week off of soccer, which I think I need more than the kids. :)

Melody has now entered the fashion world of eyeglasses. Yes, indeed. She is super-pumped to have new spectacles. I think if the eye doctor had told her she didn't need glasses, a crying fit would have ensued. Here is my sophisticated youngster with her new accessory:

I guess you can't really tell from the picture, but the frames are dark purple! I love them and so does my sweet girl. I had also forgotten how putting on a pair of glasses can age a child by a couple of years...

That wonderful photo you see of a bulldozer is what I saw out my front window this morning. In my front yard. We had a water leak from the city pipes, and so we called them over a week ago to report it. They showed up at 8:00 a.m. on the first day of Fall Break to repair it. Uhhh..hello? I, naturally, was still in my pajamas and most certainly did not answer the door in my pj's, instead making a mad dash upstairs to take a shower before they cut the water off. I think I made it just in the nick of time, because there was no water to be had once I had gotten dressed. Gannon and Melody were entertained by the large bulldozer in our front lawn, however. I still think bulldozers are pretty cool. I decided that rather than sit around the house with no water, we'd go to KidVenture and play. Once we returned, the bulldozer was gone and our water was back. I'm hoping that if the weather cooperates, we can squeeze in a hike, flower planting, and a trip to the Botanical Garden this week. Along with work, being lazy, chores and errands, that is...

Happy Fall!!
