September was a busy month in the King household. Between school starting, curriculum nights, school-related meetings, and the beginning of gymnastics, karate & cub scouts, we were running around quite a bit. We’re looking forward to a more relaxing October!
Hamza, Avery, Hayden & Kieron on their way to school
Daddy lookin’ good on crossing guard duty!
The boys show off their Washington State posters at the open house.
Kieron posing at his desk (notice the large dirt pile out the window).
Wood chippin’ – the boys LOVE it!
Doing crafts with Grammy
Towards the end of the month we finally got Grammy and Papa officially back on the best coast. Here they are in front of their new home in Bonney Lake!
Grammy and Papa with their real estate agent, moi.
With three boys in the house, play dates easily approach 5 or 6 boys, which is many decibels!
Bode & Silas
Hayden & Avery
I was putting Layla to bed one night and asked the boys to read quietly in their room until I could come tuck them in. As I approached their door I heard Kieron reading to Silas. I decided to leave them be for a while as I got ready for bed, put some laundry in, etc. Kieron read book after book to Silas! Not only was it incredibly sweet, but Kieron’s reading is exceptional for his age, and Silas was being so attentive. Definitely a proud mama moment! I snuck this pic with my phone before I came in.
I watch Hamza in the mornings before school. Here are the boys playing a game of war.
Silas at gymnastics. Just him and a bunch of girls!
The boys have been camping in the playroom on weekends. Notice the play fire and cooking setup outside the tent. They thought this up on their own – cut up cardboard for fire placed between wooden logs! Love their creativity!
Dinnertime at the King house
Tummy time for Layla. She finally likes it!
Then we noticed she was starting to roll over!
Look at the four of them! Can’t believe they’re all ours!
The boys first debate. I wrote down a few of their takeaways. They both noted that Trump sounded bossy, insincere, and interrupted a lot. Avery was pretty sure Hillary starred as Princess Leia in “The Force Awakens”. This made me laugh because a few months ago they were watching Home Alone 2 and Trump had a cameo, so it’s not really that far-fetched.
Cub Scouts selling popcorn. They had a blast and wore me out!
Playing at their school playground over the weekend.
