Weekly Wrap-up: Fall Y'all

It's been two weeks since our trip to the Canary Islands and I am just now going through the pictures and blog about our trip! Life's been a bit hectic lately, but I've got a two week wrap-up of mostly pictures, as usual. ;-)

1. Madi's new backpack and my big girl walking home from school with Mommy. And in just a couple more months she'll be able to walk by herself. Kidding! But kiddos do begin walking themselves to school here very early!

2. We were able to babysit some of our favorite playdate kiddos, Caleb and Ty, while their parents went out to dinner for their anniversary. They had loads of fun - in fact, I was told on a scale of 1-10 that Caleb's fun level was 50! :-)

3. Madi fell asleep on our way downtown to dinner with friends. Nothing like a 10 minutes cat nap and she was roaring and ready for the evening!

4. We had to say goodbye to some dear friends who moved back to Houston, Megan and Loren. We are going to miss them, but we have a large collection of spices and kahlua to remember them by. ;-)

5. Starbucks is coming to Stavanger! Maybe. There have been rumors for awhile, but they announced that it was approved and the location decided... so we will see when it actually arrives! I would love a Stavanger mug before we move away.

6. Madi has become a pro at tickling. She mumbles "tck tck tck" and smiles and giggles as she "tickles" Daddy.

7. A week ago Friday night, Madi wasn't feeling great. She had a fever and we decided to have a relaxing and rare movie evening. Well 5 minutes in I was cuddling Madi and stroking her hair and Jason goes "She's asleep." Someone was exhausted! :-(

8. But she didn't want to sleep in the next day. ;-) She still had a slight fever in the morning so we had a lazy Saturday and just hung out.

9. Madi is officially done with a bottle. She has only been getting one in the evening for the past month or so and now she's just drinking from a cup with a straw or just a cup (with a bit of help still). Big girl!

1.  It's fall ya'll! Or at least the weather has been that way except for today, which is sunny and warm again. Tease.

2. We had to skip church Sunday a week ago since it hadn't been 24 hours since Madi's fever had gone away. She was back to normal so we decided to head to the pumpkin patch to get a few decorations for the house. She was really excited to take a selfie with Mommy.

3. Madi needed to review our Northwestern Mutual funds to decide if our portfolio was balanced enough. Her conclusion? We need to diversify.

4. Madi "helping" Mommy get her work done this week. Daddy was out of town and I had a big deadline that required spending some time in the evenings (after Madi's bedtime) working.

5. Monkey see, monkey do. Except that Zoey had an easier time getting in and out than Madi...

6. Daddy's home!! She kept saying "Daddy" that day and then became silent when he actually came home. Silly girl!

7. We had a parent/teacher meeting at Ekofisk Jr barnehage to get an update on how Madi is doing. It was so precious and wonderful - she's the most smiling child in her class and doing fantastic in all areas. She is so joyful and always has been as you can see from the Timehop picture above. :-)

The only place she needs a bit of improvement is language and they said that's just a result of getting English at home and Norwegian at barnehage. She's already repeating Norwegian words though and understanding a lot for just a month and a half!

8. Thursday afternoon we got a call that Madi wasn't feeling good and had a fever. Again. :-( This meant Mommy got to stay home Friday to be with Madi - fist bump!

9. Daddy and Madi got some quality time Friday night and Saturday while Mommy went camping and hiking with some girlfriends. They had a blast hanging out and enjoyed their time together!

It's been a busy, but great couple of weeks. Here's to a fresh one with a hopefully healthy Madi! And more blog posts of Gran Canaria and hiking too. :-)
