Fall is here and we are havin' fun!

So much has happened since the last blog! We have been taking swimming lessons, have almost finished the garage at the cabin, got a new kitty and momma has been horsey riding! Swimming lessons are once a week. Ella is taking the perch class for 2-3 year olds. She likes the water and is a very big help, telling all the kids "you can do it... good job!" It is a 6 week series that we are over half way through. Maybe we will continue or move on to tumbling class. To see the change of seasons through a toddler is pretty fun. She really wants outside to pick up leaves and is obsessed with the pumpkin patch. We have been a couple times thus far and I am sure we will be going quite a few more times before Halloween. We now have a new kitty that followed Dale and Ella home on a wagon pull. We have named her Meko. She is part calico and part siamese. She looks like a siamese with orange blush! She followed them home and hasn't left since. No one has come looking for her and we figured she was from the neighbors house that has lots of kittens, regularly. She is a very sweet kitty and Woodrow loves playing with her. She is good with Ella and puts up with her harrasment. My mom is finished with chemo and starts radiation next week. Her hair is starting to grow back and soon this will be a distant memory. She has 7 weeks of radiation to go and then she is finished with her treatments just in time for enjoying the holidays! We have been trying to get in as much riding as possible before the weather turns. The weather was beautiful today and we spent it going to the pumpkin patch!
