Land of Nod Tour Bus// Like I'm going to turn down a chance to visit Land of Nod, IRL.  It was basically just a lot of furniture to look at (and not buy) and a tote bag coloring activity. 

It is Lakshman, so he somehow managed to make it fun.  He loved the giraffe bus.  We read about each of the characters and he laughed at Paul Frank's descriptions.  He introduced himself to the organizers.  He tried out all the chairs.  As you do. 

Picture Day // What the hecker happened here??

I don't know, somehow after six years I am still hopeless at curly hair.
I really tried.  I spent hours.

I just don't know.

And, they both look like they are being forced to smile against their will by their stage mom.  Really, really hoping the school will have retakes.

Super Lakshman // Target has all these cute super hero accessory sets in the dollar spot right now. All the kids are having a ball with them but Lakshman takes his powers really seriously. 
A sweet lady (whom I had never even met before) called him Super Lakshman on Sunday.  

He is known far and wide. 

T-Ball // Lakshman is playing T-ball again this fall. He had just turned three when he played in the spring.  He is still the youngest now and keeping up with the other kids is getting to be a bigger challenge.  This was the best part of our week in the spring.  Everything was so fun and cute and relaxed.  Why do kids sports have to get so aggressive so early on?

Foxy and Moxie // It was below 80 degrees here for a few hours, so I naturally dressed Lakshman in a thick knit hat for his field trip to the Nature Center.
In addition to being a super hero, he fashions himself a Wild Kratt.   He was psyched to see the fox there, of course, and named him Foxy.  Next to him is the bobcat Moxie.  The same Bobcat Avinash got to see when it came to the Nature Center as an abandoned baby, probably four years ago.  It is so fun to see the same excitement for animals in his little brother now.
We saw the crazy huge Raven Pogo too.  Lakshman taught his friends that Ravens say "Nevermore" just like I taught him.  Gotta love kids who still take everything literally.

Am I not supposed to keep asking him what a Raven says and then laughing when he says Nevermore? No?

Reading // The Books of Bayern. This is a great little young adult fantasy series.  We started out reading Goose Girl together, but I enjoyed that book so much, I ended up reading ahead on my own.  
Someday I will be able to read regular adult books again.  But the day is not here yet.
Can I still say baby brain when the baby is over three years old? No?

Making // Getting caught up on Project Life.  I still love this project.  It feels good to get caught up.  I found that I had more documented than I thought I had because I have a lot of lengthy posts on instagram.   It is so nice to quickly print out journaling.  I am also starting another year with Cocoa Daisy and I could not be more thrilled!

Planning //  So excited about fall finally being here.  Can't wait to go to the pumpkin patch again. Go trick or treating.  And going back to the Disney for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party! We are going on the first day of November with some friends and I love that we are going to be extending the Halloween season even longer.  Diwali is coming up too.

  1. Ok FIRE that photographer!!!! WOW The hair is what happens when the school schedules a photo session for after recess break- they should know better. And that smile is a photographer not knowing how to get a kid to smile. I'd buy it anyway because it's so darn cute. :) Last year I sent Lola to school in her Little Red Riding Hood costume. I asked her to please refrain from using the hood until after school but she spent the whole day with the hood on (got a call about it at home to double my parent fail) AND ruined her curls for the portrait. I got it anyway brcause I put it side by side with her make up session where her hair was perfect. lol. Like I can't a thousand photos at home- I just like these- they are a tradition.
