This week we enjoyed some beautiful weather for tricycle riding. Sam loves to lay her head in my lap and has fallen asleep a few times like that (!!). Ry is missing more teeth and I love his little jack-o-lantern smile. The boys competed at school in storytelling and we tooth some goofy pictures while we were bored (D).
