Is it really almost Halloween?

Time is just flying by, for me.  I can't keep up with it.  We're almost to the end of October, and Christmas is only 2 months away.

 Elora is begging to go to school.  She blows us away daily with her knowledge and vocabulary.

Kaylie is older now than Elora was when we got to Virginia  two years ago, and she's wearing cloths that fit Elora less than a year ago.  

Rebekah's little boy will be 7 months old tomorrow, and he's really not so little any more.  The child is so tall!  He's already in 12 month clothing, and still growing like a weed.  We try to spend a lot of time with Rebekah and James, though sometimes the days get away from us while we're blinking.  We go for walks, go the the library and the park, and take turns visiting at each other's homes.  Last week, we went to the Virginia Zoo.  The day was absolutely gorgeous, and perfect for wandering around the little zoo with the kids.  

The best part was definitely the tiger.  He saw that we were watching him sun bathe, so he got up and came over to the glass say hello.  He even kept trying to head-butt Elora through the glass, like a big house cat.  It was awesome!  

Thanks to Rebekah, we managed to snag a Phil & Ted's classic stroller with double kit for only $85 on Craigslist.  She spotted the listing and linked it to me, knowing that I've been lusting after a Phil & Ted's for years, and I jumped all over it.  I ended up needing to replace one of the tire inner tubes, but that still only put me at $100.  And then I was able to sell my old double for $55.  So, $45 for a Phil & Ted's double? Epic win.
