Field Trips, the Fall Edition

Holdyn took a field trip two weeks ago to the state capital in Montgomery. Since that's K's home turf he and I went, too. We had a nice time touring the state capitol, state house and state archives. Holdyn used my phone and took nearly 100 photos (mostly of nothing). Every once in a while I'd snatch it back to take a snap here and there.
One of mine -- a class photo RES 4th grade


Another of mine -- Holdyn and his buds

One of his -- soldier with gun

Another of his -- a pretty girl

And another of his -- large canon-type gun
As you can see, Holdyn is all boy. Most of his pictures are of guns, soldiers, and girls. Does anything else matter? Seriously though, he loves his Alabama History class and was enthralled for the majority of the trip. He asked all kinds of questions during the tour of the legislative floors of the state building; including, whether or not past legislators could spit hard enough to "ding" the spitoons and why modern legislators didn't use a hologram for days they had to be absent during session.
I'd love to get inside his head for an hour!

Evie and Kallie didn't get a class field trip this semester, so I took them on a girls' day. Mom, Aunt Elizabeth, and cousin Roma came along, too. We went to the mall for a little shopping, lunch, and a carousel ride. Fun!!

Two cuties getting ready to shop, shop, shop!

Sweet Roma decked out as a snow bunny sans snow, of course.
As things get ever hectic and stressful it is my hope that you and your loved ones will take time to remember the birth of Christ, the true reason for this season of celebration. Don't let our fast-paced, commercially driven lifestyles ruin the peace and comfort Christ brings to us all. The best gift love!

Much Love,
J

Okay, Holdyn sounds a lot like my Matt. Sounds just like the kind of questions he would ask. :)

Okay, that baby is adorable.

Such a funny boy, you have and yes, he is all boy!!! Guns and girls...just wait till he adds beer in those photos too!!

The girls are growing up way to fast. Please tell them to slow down or I will come sit on their heads for a few days. I wish I could come down there. It would be the perfect thing to make me feel better!
