Conquering the Corn Maze

We see it just about everytime we go up to Sioux Falls but have never stopped. So... we finally visited the Heartland Corn Maze thinking it would be fun for them to see (especially since corn fields play such a huge part of our lives). They had a great time trying to find their way through. Andraya is a lot like her mother - taking the lead and just trying to find the way out (why waste time???), so she was frustrated everytime we had to stop to wait for the boys who were checking out every bug, every ear of corn, and picking up every old cob of corn on the ground (can you say Seth much????) Anyway, we finally found out way out (not much help to the map - you can't follow it much when the kids just want to go their own way all the time!) As much fun as it was, we decided we might wait a few year until the kids are a little older before we go back!!!

First Days of School

Hard to believe that another school year has begun (and even harder to believe that my babies are getting so big and old!) Miss Andraya is in 1st grade this year. She loves both of her new teachers (there's a student teacher in her class). Benjamin is in preschool and is so excited that he gets to ride with Mom to school in the mornings.
