Random 5 on Friday - November 1st, 2013

1.  Our brand new trampoline blew away in a major storm last night.  The one we just bought to replace the one that blew away in the derecho last summer.  It doesn't matter how we anchor these things down, I don't think we're meant to have one.

2.  Eleanor has a new favorite toy.  The inflatable globe is light enough for her to throw in the air, and it just delights her to no end.  She is particularly amused when it ends up behind her!  This is such a fun age, and it delights me to watch her explore!



3.  We started reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz, and we're still reading The Complete Tales of Winnie-the-Pooh {affiliate links} The nice thing about Pooh is that the chapters are stand-alone, so we can take our time while we're reading other things, which is helpful while I'm catching up on book reviews for the blog.

4.  Speaking of reviews, I'm finishing up my last two Schoolhouse Crew Reviews for this year.  So sad that the year is wrapping up, but Applications for 2014 for new members are still open, if you're interested.  I also have a few more children's book reviews/giveaways coming up.  yay!

5.  Emory was in a stick-horse parade Wednesday night.  The kids were awesome, and oh so cute!

  1. I often get to see your random 5 on Friday. I really like the idea. Is this something that just you do? Or is there a link up somewhere?

  2. I know, I liked the idea because I can throw all those random but not-quite-post-worthy-alone thoughts into one post. Miranda @ The Pebble Pond hosts the link-up. The little button with the birdhouse, at the end of the post, will take you to her link-up! http://memoriesbymiranda.blogspot.com/search/label/Random%205%20on%20Friday

  3. This is the only link up I seem to be able to manage on a regular basis.

    1. Me too. It's a great place to kind of "wrap-up" everything without worrying if anything makes sense. Love being random!

  4. Oh no! Your poor trampoline (your poor children too!!) That's terrible!

    1. I know...I'm giving up on outdoor equipment. Our swing set was damaged twice this spring from high winds too.

  5. Looks like y'all had a fun week. I love the pictures of your sweet girl with the globe and your Halloween pictures! Sorry to hear about your trampoline. We've had ours blow across the year, but it's never blown away.

  6. I love that you love the link up! I agree. I love to go back and reread what I have put over the last few months. Its a neat way to remember the little (and sometimes not so little) things. :)

    Love your pictures by the way!

    1. Miranda, it's fun to read what "random" things other people are thinking about, and like you, I enjoy going back and remembering what was on my mind months ago. Thanks for hosting!
