About 6 months ago Lizzie started wearing glasses to strengthen her right eye. We went in last month to see if they were working and we are so grateful that they are. But I also learned that the pair of glasses we originally picked weren't sturdy enough for her active life. They were so bent out of shape, and the doctor told me that since they were sitting crooked on her face that it changes the prescription. So we need stronger glasses. And these adorable pink glasses won. They are Disney Princess glasses and yep that's right, they are Cotton Candy Pink. These two facts made it easier for her to let go of her originals. She gets so attached to things.

My parents have quite a large back yard, and up until recently it was pretty much unusable. Now it is an empty canvas. The kids are already having a blast running around back there. They were so excited to see a tractor in Gram-me's backyard.

Lizzie was so excited to be student of the week. Her favorite part...Ringing the class bell of course and showing her poster to the class.

This was a field-trip we took back in October. It was so beautiful up in Oak Glen, and the weather was perfect. As we walked through the orchard the smell of apples was unbelievably delicious. We made apple cider and watched the apple sorting machine. We sampled the apple cider doughnuts and tried not to get hit by the falling chestnut seed pods falling from California's oldest chestnut tree.
