Oct. 30--Work Day
In the afternoon, Christine came by to pick up the boys to take them to the church so they could help our church administrator, Brian, with yard work. The church is on a largish piece of property, with a lot of trees and bushes, so there was plenty to do! The boys were absolutely thrilled to be using Brian's equipment. He also has a landscaping business, so he has lots of cool stuff. For example, the boys did not rake. No, they used these cool backpack leafblower things, as well as one big powerful thing that was different but also blew leaves (in an even cooler fashion). Obviously, I didn't get all the details, but much fun was had, and Luke even said he thought they should go help Mr. S. every Wednesday afternoon! Plus, they got Dr. Peppers at the end, so that was just icing on the cake.
After dinner, baths, and putting down Micah and Drew, Bob and I went out to buy new shoes for me. I've had the same pair of running shoes (which I don't actually run in, of course, although I do a lot of walking, LOL) since November 8, 2007. That means I have walked in them through 3 pregnancies! They have been very faithful and comfortable shoes, but alas, they are finally giving out. I bought another pair of Asics, also with purple and white. The only difference is that while the old pair was a size 8, the new pair is an 8 1/2. So now my feet, which were size 7 or 7 1/2 up until I started having kids, are now officially at least a whole size bigger. Oh well. May this pair last another 6 years--I hate shopping!
