first quilt... kinda

Jaron has started his training at the prison now... Which his schedule is still up in the air. I guess it is still a wait and see. It will be nice for him not to have to drive to Lansing every day for a while... nice on gas cost too!

I have been working on a quilt for Kaden. When I was subbing last spring some of the staff got together and had a quilt class and then school was over for the summer and well, I just never got back to it until now. I am kind of at a point where I need the next class so I may have to hunt someone down to figure out what is next.

Kaden does not like it when we put the gate up into the kitchen. Lately he has taken it upon himself to start moving all of his toys from the living room over the gate into the kitchen. The other day he lifted the soccer ball over!

Here he is going back for more...
And then one of his blankets...
he is really ready to go... now why can't he do this with his toys when it is time to clean up!
Earlier this month Kaden enjoyed one of our last warm days outside. Our yard is sloped and the grass is spotty so he was having a rough time getting himself up the "hill" to the deck.
He loves the little "Helicopter" seedlings that fall to the ground.

Kaden is really taken with books. This is no surprise due to his parents love of books. Each time we read a book to him we then have to hide it (usually in the couch) so we don't read it ten times in a row and he will get down, go get another and another. He does get wiggly and we are trying to focus on getting through a book before we start another.

Then in August we were able to attend a friends wedding on Grand Island in New York and Kaden was able to visit Niagra Falls for the first time.
