Riding a tractor at the pumpkin patch

From Instagram: Never mind the flat tire; he’s still in heaven!

This week we made it to the pumpkin patch with our CC group and I finished printing labels for our Christmas cards and baby announcements, so we are officially ready for Lucas to come whenever he’s ready!

My Essentials class also threw me the sweetest little baby shower at lunch yesterday, with cupcakes a couple of moms had baked after an afternoon at the pumpkin patch (that’s love!), diapers and adorable outfits for our new little man, and the two sweetest papers that the kids wrote about the new baby coming.

Beyond the presents (and we’re so thankful for extra diapers!), I really loved that they took the time out of their busy schedules to celebrate baby Lucas!


What I’m readingThe Fire Sermon by Francesca Haig and a whole bunch of nonfiction I’m hoping to finally finish in the upcoming week (I’m definitely a starter when it comes to nonfiction!)
