Aside from school starting up, we had a lot of things going on in September. Nate kept busy at work, as usual. He started up a cool thing where he made custom ear molds for the pilots. They were pretty excited about it. He also got put on the Moulage team. Anytime the base has an exercise in some type of disaster scenario, Nate goes in early to do the 'wound make-up'. He loves it, and it gets him out of staying all day long. The pictures look pretty sick. Rest assured, it's all fake ;).
Sawyer started his first season of soccer. He was pumped about it. The excitement didn't quite translate to the field, unfortunately. I think he spent more time looking at planes and playing with friends than looking for the ball. Maybe next year...
I picked up some Dirndl's for Violet and Isla while in Garmisch for Girls Camp. Unfortunately, at the moment, Violet fits in both dresses. I'm hoping the smaller one fits Isla next summer so we can take some sweet pictures. Now to find some Lederhosen for the boys...
Violet started Ballet/Tap. She looks freakin cute in her little leotard and skirt!
Isla started becoming even more of a destroyer.
I took an old school desk from a flea market and painted it red (per Sawyer's request). It gets used more for legos than for homework, but we are happy with it :).
I also celebrated my 30th Birthday!! Ahh! When did I get OLD!?!? My girlfriends threw me an awesome surprise lunch (which I was over 30 minutes late for!!! whoops!). And Nate took me out for Thai food. He also bought me a silhouette (which arrived 2 weeks late)--but he took me to Paris to make up for the late purchase of said present. So I forgave him ;) More on that, later. <3 p="">3>
|We got some really fun bath stuff from our German cousins. Turns the water different colors, makes funny popping noises, etc.|
|One of the kids gave Isla some breakfast--lucky charms and bbq chips|
|We have a great indoor pool on Base and finally started taking advantage of it every now and then.|
Nate took the GED (or is it GRE??--can't remember!!) for his orthodontics application. While in Frankfurt he located a Chipotle and brought some back for me!!!! That was a good day!
