Corn Maze

On Saturday, Hugh, Calder, and I headed out to the Corn Maze at Rosthern.

The picture below took a significant amount of work to get organized.  The four month pregnant lady had to scale the bale.  This was by far the easy part of the work.  The hard part, surprisingly, was getting Calder up.

Hugh.  Six foot two inch Hugh, should have been able to hoist Calder up with no effort.  But for some reason, he decided he should put Calder on the bale 10 feet to my right.  I had to let him know that we couldn't let Calder "fend for himself" on a bale.   With Hugh's arms extended and Calder in them, Hugh began shimmying along the edge of the bale toward me.  According to Hugh's account later, he then tripped on a piece of wood and then followed that with slipping on it.  This lead him to a slow motion fall along the edge of the bale to his back on the ground, all the while with arms extended and Calder in them.

I meanwhile, had the best view at the farm!  I looked around as Hugh recovered on the ground and no one else seemed to have noticed (unfortunately, because it was SO funny).  Hugh did a great job falling as Calder was unscratched.  The fall was so slow, Calder didn't even get scared.  He just looked at Hugh as if to say "why am I on the ground"!

Here is the evidence of the fall.  Hugh's straw covered back.  Although Calder didn't get scratched, Hugh unfortunately can not say the same thing!


The best part of the petting zoo was climbing the fences.  He only fell once (on Hugh's watch, I may add).

Happy Thanksgiving.

Nicknames

All of Hugh's hockey buddies call him "Hammy".

Hugh has been calling Calder "Ham" for a long time. I can't even remember when it started.

Calder started calling Boone "Bean" when he first came home from the hospital. That evolved into "Boone Dog", "The Dog", and just simply, "Dog".  Boone is not a fan of nicknames. Often after we use one of his he will say, "I not Da Dog, I just Boone." Hilarious.

Boone has called Lawson "Dawsie" from about month two. (He called her "baby" for the first two months.) Last week Boone called her Lawson for the first time ever. It took a long time for him to put the "L" on Lawson. He would repeat after us "La La La La, Dawsie". He has said "Lawson" twice since the momentous occasion last week, but I think he got too much attention for using it and has moved back to "Dawsie". "Dawsie" likely isn't going any…

What I'm wearing

After my Simons' flop, I recently picked up three pairs of jegging capris at Costco. I think they were about $16 each. I got them in grey (above), teal (also above), and white. I absolutely love them and have been wearing them like crazy. My favorite of the two outfits is the bottom one. The jean jacket is Mavi and I HIGHLY recommend it. In fact, I recently bought another. Exact same style, different wash. This jacket was recommended by both Deena and Christy, so you really can't go wrong. The scarf is one I picked up this spring (Gap). I heart orange and teal. Last week I mentioned trying to define my signature look and that bottom one pretty much encapsulates it. . .
And here it is again. LOVE this one too. Cardigan and scarf are recent purchases along with the grey tee (Old Navy). Jeans are old (American Eagle) and shoes are old (Nine West). I can't wait to recreate this one!
These. Jeans. (Gap). I can't get enough of them. I wore them to professional development o…

Calder Update

Has Calder ever gotten into sports the last couple of months!?! Below he is at a Rush lacrosse game with Hugh and his buddy Kohen. Calder has been watching baseball, lacrosse, and now the hockey playoffs like crazy. In fact, he has stopped asking to watch any of his "shows". He just wants to watch sports. Oh. . . and add NASCAR to that list. Our boy loves his cars. I don't think that will ever change!

Here is Calder's funniest shark tooth yet. His permanent tooth pushed through in front of his baby tooth!  It was like this for weeks. No gap toothed grin for this boy! Below is the day it fell out!
Calder is doing so well in school. His teacher speaks of what a great student he is. Hearing her say these things actually makes me wish he used a few more manners and a bit more kindness at home! LOL. But, if he is going to be on his best behavior somewhere, I want it to be when we aren't around. Although it was great to hear about Calder's learning successes at pa…
