We are having beautiful fall weather here. Last week we went on another hike around the nearby state park with some friends.
The wasps take bits of wood from trees and make paper to build their nest out of.
I realized about half way through our hike that it was the first time I had taken all 3 girls on a hike without Andrew. I ended up carrying Naomi (and Baba) for a lot of it, but we made it!
At the end of the hike, the girls spotted a caterpillar with horns. I think it is a Leafy Spurge Hawk Moth caterpillar.
After the hike, we went to the beach to play in the sand.
Naomi was so excited to see the water. She just walked right into that icy cold water in her clothes... and loved it. She went in several times to her waist and even fell over one time up to her shoulders.

Malia has had her first loose tooth for a couple of weeks. Last Monday while at school she finally lost it. I got a text from a mom who was supervising lunch that day. "Malia just lost her tooth when she bit into her pizza! I think she swallowed it. We can't find it! She doesn't seem too concerned."
Her new smile.
I suggested that she write the tooth fairy at note since she didn't have the tooth to put under her pillow.
Her face was beaming the next morning when she came downstairs with a dollar bill in her hand. Good old tooth fairy!

One week while Emmie was out of town, I took the two Pre-K cousins out for a hike.
They really do love each other.
We saw this little Downy Woodpecker too.
