Lowell did a great job trick-or-treating. Much improvement over the last couple of years, even though he was sick.
Now we head into the holiday season. Yikes...already!? Looking forward to introducing more traditions this year and continuing with others that have become more meaningful as the kids get older. Now if he'd just stop making us call him William, or is it Hamilton today? Not sure where this new "name" phase came from, but they don't really appreciate it at school. Always something to work though:)

Afterward we had a picnic lunch and took this photo with my camera sitting on a log on the self-timer. I think it's my new favorite.

Then the Ecklund's came into town from California and we had a week "up north" at Thunder Lake with my parents and my sisters family. We had a great time and Lowell got to meet his new cousin Hans for the first time!
We still have the State Fair to look forward to in a few weeks. Then Lowell is off to kindergarten. He is soooo ready and we are so excited to have him fully integrated into a typical classroom. A week later he turns SIX years old!
Finally, on September 26th we will be doing the Walk Now for Autism event for the third year. Here is our web page for Lowell if you feel inclined to support us.

The afternoon was spent with Nana and Bobo. We had a great grilled meal and took a walk through their neighborhood looking at all the flowers. What a lovely day!

We're continually amazed by Lowell's comprehension and vocabulary! He seems to understand what we're asking and wants to know more and more about the world around him. In the next post I'll tell you all about the Miracle League baseball team he's on...the St. David's Cubs!

I enjoy looking for signs of spring with the kids. Now that Lowell is talking a lot he is asking all kinds of fun questions:) It's fun to put on my "naturalist's hat" when we're outside and teach the kids about the natural world. They really enjoy it...and so do I.

We also made it through kindergarten "round up". We were pleased that Lowell did pretty well. Our proudest moment is when they had the kids leave with a teacher that had a certain color balloon that corresponded with the color balloon on their name tag. The woman with the blue balloons came and we said, “ok Lowell, go follow the lady with the blue balloons.” It took every ounce of our being to not follow along since we thought he may stop at any random door and go inside and look for the scotch tape (a current obsession). He followed along and we sat with tears in our eyes (yes, it’s the little things!) as he walked away with the kids. He did make it to the room and we didn’t hear anything from the classroom, so no news is good news. Kindergarten here we come. Yikes!!
