|First day of school picture!|
|Ready to start kindergarten!|
Aside from Raylan starting school, things are mostly just chugging along as they were before. Kiddo is still going to her preschool, and Amy and I are both working at home. We're hoping to finalize Kiddo's adoption in early November on National Adoption Day. Very excited about that!
|Raylan and Papa build a spaceship|
|I tried to get Raylan to explain some of his|
chalk drawings. It took a while.
|Raylan literally winds Kiddo up on the swing set|
On Saturday morning I took the kids down to the Greenbelt to try to wear them out a little bit.
|If you look closely in the background of this|
pic, you can see rock climbers scaling that cliff
|Both kids had fun "exploring", although|
eventually Kiddo got tired
|the kids add some rocks to Barton Creek|
|later on Saturday Amy helped the kids do some finger painting|
in the back yard

Saturday evening I had a back yard, social distance band practice with Therapy Pets over Reed's house. It was fun. I think we sounded pretty good.
Sunday morning I took the kids on a "bug hunt", which mostly just turned into a walk. We saw some big turtles down by the creek.

Trying to teach the kids how to approach animals
cautiously and gently.
Amy's friend and co-worker, Tyler, came by to pick up some baby gear that we've outgrown and which he can use for his baby daughter.
We had intended to have him just pick up the stuff in the driveway while we stayed in the house, but.... the kids were desperate to explain to him how the toys work Also, Tyler had Pogo, his little dog with him, so there's no way the kids were gonna stay in the house with that dog in our driveway.
|There's no way Tyler could have figured|
out this tiny record player
|Later we played with Magna-Tiles|
It was a good weekend. Pretty busy, now that I'm looking back on it. I also went for a bike ride each day and Amy went for a run.
So that's about it! Hope everyone is doing okay and staying safe!
