My Addie learned to ride a two-wheel bike this weekend! She just asked me on Friday if she could try it without training wheels and I told her "Sure," thinking we'd for sure be putting them within a matter of minutes. But nope! She totally got it! And by today, she was riding the entire length of our street by herself! She still needs help to start on her own and make turns, but that will come. So proud of her :) And she's really proud of herself, which is exciting to see. That was the Sorbel weekend highlight!!

Kinda corny... kinda looks like a Christmas card... but still fun :) We've built a fire a couple nights in a row now, not because it's really cold out, but because we can! Just something we love about this house. The kids LOVE watching the fire, sitting by the fire, and cuddling by the fire. So, yes, we had to get a pic in front of the fire :)
Brandt started school again. Not sure he's loving it, but he's doing it. Fantasy Football is in full swing again, so conversations on Sundays are hard to come by ;)
I am just beginning dance season here-- slow at the beginning and then busy starting the end of October. This will be my last year coaching, so of course I'll be throwing my heart and soul into this season. I love my girls, but I am also ready to be done with that chapter of my life.
Addie started preschool last week. She goes 3 mornings a week now and has been loving every second of it. This Wed. she gets to be the 'Star Student' of the day, which means show and tell, snack, line leader, ringing a bell for clean-up, and erasing the white board. She is ecstatic to do all these things! It's adorable.
Eli is talking up a storm. We can understand his sentences most of the time ;) I'm trying to make my 3 mornings alone with him really count. There are days when errands need to be run, but I'm trying to make an effort to really spend time just being with him during these mornings because those times are precious and won't happen for very long!
That's life in the Sorbel household right now :) Happy Monday!

We spent last weekend at Trout Lake Camp for our first ever family camp!! The kids were great and we had a wonderful time with the fam! These are a few of my favorite pics from the weekend. We'll definitely be making this a tradition. Tons of terrific memories :)
