The Rest of September

Picture Day 2015, George in Kindergarten, Magnolia in 2nd Grade

 Saturday afternoon shopping at Bayshore and we ran into Willa who was going to her Homecoming dinner at a restaurant there.  We were happy we got to see her all dressed up.

 George's cousin, Ed, came to visit with his wife and daughter Marianne. We had a lot of fun having a baby in the house! We went to the art museum, took a walk along the lake, and had lunch outside.

 Cici came along as well for her first trip to our art museum.
One of  Magnolia's riding lesson.

Farewell September 2014. October is next and was a big month for us!

Apple Picking

It was a family affair that year to go apple picking! Cici, our exchange student from Shanghai, had never been. We were excited to take her. George had just injured his leg a few weeks prior and I remember him being in immense pain, having to lie flat in the car while I drove.  Once he was standing, he was better.

 Cici Wu

So much fun.

George's Birthday 2014

We had our exchange student, Cici, now for a month and she was a delight.  Always full of laughter.  On George's birthday she insisted on making him a bowl of noodles which she said is a kind gesture that they do in her family.  

 Birthday cake.  Was in homemade gingerbread with fresh whipped cream?!

 Because I am posting this a year later, I really cannot recall what we did on this birthday.  It must have fallen on a weekday and we just had dinner at home.

Brewers Cardinal Game

We couldn't end our summer without seeing the Cardinals play here one more time. We got to bring Lily along which made it super fun for the kids.

 LOVE Georgie's sign...."GO Cardz!"

Can't remember who won but I do remember that we all had a lot of fun.
