Mouse Training

Today I taught Abby how to use the mouse.

Here she is showing her new ability after a short lesson.

Maybe I should start teaching her how to computer program next.

Hall Thanksgiving 2007

Andrea and Abby headed on to Jackson during Thanksgiving week and I met up with them on Thanksgiving day.

While they were gone, they surprised Anna, Andrea's middle sister, with a Lua themed birthday party. They had so much fun decorating for it. On Wednesday, Andrea's Mom's family came for and early Thanksgiving lunch. The kids all had fun playing together in the backyard, Abby splashed in some wet puddles for the first time and had a blast!

The next day, Andrea's Dad's side of the family came for Thanksgiving Day (along with me).

There were over 20 people at both gatherings. We had a great time visiting with family.

We have been working on a different memory verse every month with Abby in coordination with a teaching program that Andrea has been doing with her. I thought it was about time to get a video of her saying them.

Also, Abby enjoys singing the alphabet song and counting numbers. You can watch her recite those as well.

Racquetball Boys

Andrea's sister, Alissa and her two boys came to stay with us for four days.

While they were here I went with the boys to play racquetball at the local Green Hills YMCA. We all got a good workout running around the court hitting the ball. It was all good, I only hit them a couple of times :)

Abby enjoyed playing with her cousins. While I was at work they all went to the ICE!TM exhibit at Gaylord Opryland.

Andrea's other sister, Anna and her husband Ron and 6 month old Joshua came and stayed for 5 days. Anna was able to attend two events at Fellowship Bible Church with Andrea, Moms Together and Women at Rest. Abby was so sweet to baby Joshua.

October Preschool

This month we learned about the Fall season.

Andrea and Abby had so many fun activities to do this month.  Their favorite day was today when they got to share some of their favorite activities with their friends who came over for a "Structured Playgroup."  Look at the pictures above with captions to see some of the activities from this month.

For those of you who are interested, you can view the details of Abby's Daily Preschool Program for the month of October.
