Language learning

Sometimes I think that Thad can speak German...he tells me "nein" which I think is "no" in German. Ahhh, and so it begins. But then I do really think that he is learning English pretty well. Last week he said "howareyou" to Auntie Julie (we both heard it! you can ask her:). And sometimes I think I can distinguish a "momma" in his chatter--especially when he's laying in bed not wanting to go to sleep.

Fall in Wisconsin

It was a beautiful fall day here in Wisconsin! Thad and I sat on the front porch of Jamie's parents' house and watched the corn field across the road being harvested. Being a city girl, I keep making comments to Jamie like, "that looks just like a picture"--having grown up around here, he just thinks these sights are normal :)
We're planning to leave on our big trip south and west next week, so we have to enjoy all the pretty sights while we can. Though we are excited that we'll be traveling in the fall, and we'll be able to enjoy all the fall colors as we drive along!
