*Heading out to the trees*
*I LOVE this picture of the kids with Matt*
*I think she was having trouble pulling this apple off the tree*
*Doing some serious apple picking- Full concentration*
* I had pulled an apple off that still had leaves attached and Riley cleaned it up for me*
*Telling Mommy about the apples*
*Ready to eat apples!*
All the trees int he back were loaded like this (thanks for the tip Carrie)*
*Heading back to the front to weigh our apples*
*This one was their size*
*The sun was pretty bright- I love Riley's face in this one*

We have had a ton of fun so far on our break but all the real fun begins tomorrow. Matt is taking off for a few days and he will be with is for the next 6 days! YEA!!!!! We love it when Daddy is home with us. We are planning on taking the kids camping, apple picking, apple baking (after the picking), and a few local trips around Nashville. Then at the end of next week we are heading up to Lee and Linda's for the weekend. Matt, Lee and the kids will do a bunch of fun things on Saturday while Linda and I head to Archivers. We are doing an 11 hour crop! I am so excited!!!! I have my pictures all printed out and I am starting to set up my page ideas so I am set to go and can get a lot done. I have a few more that I am sending to Shutterfly to have them here in time for the weekend. To make the weekend even better, my husband bought me a rolling tote to help with organization! I am so excited to get it all packed and ready to go. The last time I went to a scrap thing, I carried a huge rubber maid tote. This will be so much easier. So I will be updating with Pictures over the weekend and after next week. Hope you all are enjoying Fall as much as we are!

Saturday was Caleb's last day of baseball. This being his first attempt at organized sports, I think he learned a tremendous amount.
It's amazing to see how technical he is. He loves to analyze things. From the position of his footing while batting, to when to turn his wrists as he swings through the ball. We've come to the conclusion that Caleb is our thinker (sometimes over-thinker) and Ian is our creative artist. Ian isn't a bad athlete himself, but he would rather 'just hit the ball' than think about HOW to hit it.
Here are some pictures I took during his last game.
This is my absolute favorite action sequence of Caleb.
1. Field the ball (notice the 'alligator' technique)
2. Once again, he does EXACTLY as he was taught. Point your glove at the target, step and throw.
3. The follow through.
