this and that

It's been awhile.
We've been surviving. The girls had an awful bout of illness. It seemed like they were going to be sick forever. Karly had an ear infection, Katie had a cold then Katie had a double ear infection and Karly had a bad cold then they were both being watched for croup... BUT we are all better. Just a hint of a runny nose.

We were able to catch a weekend where the girls seemed to feel well enough to spend the day picking apples. It helped that we chose a day that was 80 degrees out. You can tell by the way they are dressed that I didn't realize it was going to be so warm out but we had a great day.

Karly ate so many apples. She wasn't wasting them. She was chowing down but would drop it in the dirt. We'd find another small one, rinse it off and give it to her and she'd start chowing down again.
Katie wouldn't eat any of the apples until we picked a green one called a greening. That one was so tart but oh so good. She ate the whole thing.

They loved picking the apples. Most of the ones we have are the ones the girls picked.

Katie had some trouble trying to get them off the vines and she fell a few times but she never gave up.
School is going great. The girls have learned so much in the short time they've been there. They want to go and they want to learn. It makes me so proud to say that. They grasp what they are learning and they tell me about it on the way home from school. We continue the theme they are learning when we are at home. Tonight we went over C words. I am going to put up the alphabet in their room along with numbers and colors.

They have a terrific time on the playground and it is the only part of the day where I really get to see them.

I am glad that everyone is feeling better and hopefully it will stay that way for awhile.

The pictures of apple picking are so darn cute and what fun thing to do!! Another reason why fall is so great!!!

I always love how they're dressed! They always look similar, but not matchy-matchy. I love that and if I had twin girls I'd want to dress them exactly like Katie and Karly.
