October at the Borups

Here's how October went down:

Homework....I think I hate homework more than the kids.  This is how I do math too.  Fingers totally work!

Spelling?  Who needs it?  They're Borups...I mean, really....will they ever be "great" spellers?  It's not really in the genes.

Making lunches the night before.  It's nice to have slave workers put in some overtime at night.

Weston got to go on his first official preschool field trip.  He's been on many before, but none that were considered his own.  He loves preschool!  This field trip was to Linder Farms....a fun place to get a pumpkin, go on a hayride, play in a corn box (like a sand box, but with corn), go through a hay bale maze, and climb through tires.  Fun, Fun!!

Crazy hair day for school!  She wouldn't dress up crazy, but she let me do her hair crazy.

Got their very own deodorant!  I wish I had my camera out when they first came down and saw the deodorant and I told them it was their very own!  Oh, they were so happy and excited.  They've been begging for it for a while.  Greg has a soft spot for kids that want deodorant.  You'll have to ask him about his own journey to acquire his stick of deodorant when he was a young boy.

Hayden's first Priesthood Session of General Conference.

We canned salsa Conference weekend.  We also canned peaches and pears.  And I dried apples and pears.  It's a lot of work!

We took our own family to Linder Farms for FHE one night.  They had so much fun.  We went through the corn maze with everyone.  And the greatest part of it was that I didn't walk away from this experience telling myself, "I will NEVER take all 6 kids out in public again!"

Hayden played football for the first time this year.  The beginning was rough but by the end I think he liked it.  Don't know if he will try again next year but I'm glad he tried it!  He got to wear his jersey to school on game days.

Pumpkin carving...

Hayden trick or treated with friends this year.  I think he has plans for next year...isn't he too old to trick or treat next year??  I thought he was too old this year.

The trick or treating crew.  We had a lady bug, dragon, Rapunzel, Dracula, and a beat up basketball player.

And then there was this guy.  I never know who will come out of our house Halloween night.

  1. Greg, what exactly are you?? I keep thinking, "If I were Greg, and someone asked, I'd say, I'm ... a ......" and I've got nothing. It's not a bad look though. Cute kids! The only good thing about Halloween in my opinion is cute kids in costumes!
