Since figuring out how to stream Pandora through our TV, we have been doing so frequently. The kids refer to this as Dance Party. They love to boogie. They also really like being recorded. Bennett was a little cranky, and we were trying to get him to dance too which he does for a few seconds. Generally he gets just as into it as the girls. Zoe was really bouncing around which is pretty typical of her. Sydney, on the other hand, was much more comical than usual. I have a few videos of their dancing, but every time I watch this clip I laugh out loud. In that spirit, I thought that others may benefit from a good giggle. So here it is.

Zoe's first grade program. I ordered a DVD so I didn't have to rely on my own recording abilities, but took about 10 minutes of video (the intro through Zoe's class) so that I could share it here. The program is called How Does Your Garden Groove? and Zoe's class were "hot potatoes." Zoe did a great job even though she said she was really nervous. She even remembered her line and said it loud and clear. I was so proud! I totally cried. Hope you enjoy the first bit of the show. By the way, you stop being able to see Zoe after about 6 minutes. Sorry, sat on the wrong side of the room.

Bennett has been toying with the idea of walking for months, and has been pushing things around for nearly as long. About a week and a half ago he struck out and started walking about without any support. Not just a few steps either - he took off and is going everywhere. Watch out sisters, brother is on the go!

September: Rob came back from Afghanistan and we all attempt to readjust. I seriously have very little recollection of any actual events during the entire month. There was a visit from Shar for her birthday and a couple of other birthdays during the month (Mom, Grandma B, Lindsey).
October: Trip to Texas to visit Auntie Shar and pick up Nanny (who flew in to Texas to be able to visit both Shar and us). Six Flags over Texas, Zoe's first real roller coaster (which she loved) and then a couple more roller coasters (the loop-to-loop was her favorite), outlet mall before driving home. Pumpkin patch, pumpkin carving, trick or treating (Zoe = Super Girl, Sydney = Belle, Bennett = Lion, Mommy = covered in barf thanks to Bennett).
November (so far): Rob to training. Parent teacher conferences (my kids rock). My first group art show (guess I rock too). Refridgerator breaks : ( and gets fixed : ). Bennett's first steps (about an hour ago) and yes I know that 16 months is a little late to start walking, but what can I say he has his own agenda.
And that is the news in brief.
