a raccogliere le olive

 Abbiamo raccolto le olive con lo zio sabato!  Aaron รจ stato davvero diligente.  Isabel riesce a stare dentro un cestino... e Jordan ha deciso di raccogliere foglie invece di olive. :)

 It feels like the autumn leaves have JUST barely started to change colors. Global warming?!  These are beautiful leaves!  There's a delicious fruit tree that our neighbors have.  It's called a "caco" or persiman tree, but they're not persimans that you find elsewhere.  When they're ready to eat I'll post a picture.  They are seriously so sweet and yummy!

My boys with their BFF!

Florence with the boys

 Monday we had to renew Jordan's passport and so headed down to Florence.  I had hoped to see some touristy sites with the boys, but it ended up just being a trip to the consulate and finding a cool park not too far from the consulate.  I sure love these boys!

This kiddo fell asleep on the couch the other day like this.  So funny!

She also has a hard time sleeping.  She's probably slept the whole night through 10-15 nights in her 4 years of life.  She has enormous (no joking!) tonsils and I think she suffers from sleep apnea.  She also has phonetical problems and we're starting some speech therapy.

This week we saw an ENT and I got the best news of my life... she's going to get her tonsils out (partial tonsillectomy).  I'm really hoping this helps with both sleeping and speech issues.  If nothing else, at least to be able to sleep at night will be a huge gift!

First day of Autumn

 First day of fall- I brought lemon popsicles when I picked up the kids from school.

 And then we had fun taking pictures of our silly faces!

First day of school

 Today was Jordan's first day of elementary school.  I'm still waiting to hear how things went.  I think he was excited.  He sure didn't say much.  He did smile sometimes with a sly look and so I'm going to guess that all is well.


 Jordan's BFF.  Jordan e il suo amico di pelle!
