Around here

Soccer finally came to a close, and we restarted swim lessons at the gym.
Jacob really enjoys it, which I'm happy to hear.
 
I never know what this little monkey will say or do!
Such a fun age!  He makes us laugh!
 
It appears we may have another horizontal sleeper! 
 
I always like to peak in on them before I head to bed. 
This particular night I couldn't find Levi, then I looked over into Jacob's bed :)
 
I wanted him to take a nap since we were going to be out past his bedtime last night.
He was holding a toy before it fell out.  :)
 
Today Kris was off work and we met Beth and her family who were camping.
Then we went on a little hike. 
 
Carved pumpkins

 
 Roasted hot dogs
 
Lounged in the hammock
and I just noticed Jacob is holding an Oreo and that's why his teeth are dirty!
 
While we were there, something exciting happened!
Luke rode his bike without training wheels!!
Yea Luke! 
 
So if you've been around a while, you may recall that Jacob has never shown interest in riding a bike.
I did a couple of posts about it here and here.
Before John took Luke's training wheels off, Jacob showed interest in riding. 
He rode several laps around the camp site.  We were so happy and he was having fun.

Then after the training wheels came off, we encouraged him to give it a try.
There may have been some frustration, a few tears, but thankfully smiles too!
He has a long way to go, but for someone who never rides, I was proud he did this much!

He's already asked if we can go riding after church tomorrow on his bike!
Progress people! :)
