Goodbye Football, Hello Basketball

Football ended just in time to start basketball.

Last football game:

First basketball game today:


Every Halloween at the elementary school, the 4th grade class gives famous person speeches.  This was Drew's year.  He had to research his famous person, write a report on his famous person and then prepare a speech - a four sentence speech to be said in front of the entire 4th grade and all of their parents.  There are over 100 4th graders so you can imagine how full the gym was.  Drew was pretty nervous, but he did great.  In case you have trouble hearing him, he was Michael Phelps.  :-)

We had a ninja, a kitty and Superman this year for Halloween.  Best of all, we had a beautiful (as in not cold) night for Trick or Treating!

Gone Fishing

The weather during the month of October was beautiful so we spent a lot of time outside.  One Sunday we went to visit Nate, Jennie and Cooper to do some fishing.  Drew and Kayley have been fishing once and Ryan has never been.  They had so much fun!  The pond at Nate and Jennie's house is very well stocked so the kids had a very productive fishing experience, which certainly helped their enjoyment!

Ryan even caught a leaf!

After fishing, the kids moved on to the cats.  And now they want a cat.  We'll just have to keep visiting the Nate and Jennie because we aren't getting any cats!

Ryan finished the day with a tractor ride with his dad.
