|“I want our next house to have a big playroom for all our toys and a living room with THREE couches,” says Tyler in response to Mark’s question about what kind of house he would like to live in.|
|“But, if I buy a toy at Target today, I won’t have any money for the Playmobile lighthouse that I’m saving for,” says a wide-eyed Aaron as the reality of limited funds dawns on him. I’m glad he is learning this lesson a couple of decades before I did.|

our friend Renea sent these cute University of Nebraska Huskers shirts for the boys. This is one of the few pictures we’ve ever been able to get of the three of them standing still, facing the camera, and smiling – that’s a lot to ask of a 6, 4, and 2 year old! This may be our Christmas card folks! Now, where to insert Aiden…..
Aaahh….Fall, my favorite season! Cooler weather, beautiful colors, the start of school, pumpkin bread, corn mazes, costumes, (I guess I have to mention football), pumpkin-carving, Halloween, Thanksgiving and……….being buried in feed corn.
Yep, when Mark came home for a visit last weekend we went to Port Farms, a farm nearby that has great fall activities for kids, including a big play area full of feed corn! Check it out:
Although Jackson accidentally took most of the corn home in his diaper, I think there is still plenty for any of you who might fancy being buried on a fall afternoon!
For Tyler’s 6th birthday we enjoyed some quiet time at home with Mark the day before he left for a 6 week rotation in Punxsutawney, PA (yep, home of the groundhog Punxsutawney Phil!). Mark will be staying in a nice little condo there with one of his classmates whom he will be sharing clinical rotations with at the hospital.
Before he left, Mark helped set up Tyler’s new toy – a Rokenbok Conveyor Company with Radio Control Center and Control Pad which controls the front loader vehicle. The new toy is being enjoyed by all four boys of the house!
