Breakthroughs at the McMurrays and more Fall pics

We have had some breakthroughs here at the McMurrays. . . . . .
* Dad's breakthrough - He is following his life long dream to work in Higher Education. Aaron started his new job at Whitworth University
*Mom's breakthrough - I walked downstairs after a shower and Keagan and Kinkade were sitting at the counter and had made their own breakfast. . . fruit, toast and yogurt. And, had finished their homework on their own. I was so proud of them.
Keagan's breakthrough - He gets to finally be on his first Basketball team this Winter.
Kinkade's breakthrough - Halloween and his six year old birthday are coming up this week . . by far his biggest week of the year!
Lucia's breakthrough - She says "Yes" now! It used to be "No" to everything. Her language is so fun. She is trying to say everything. This kid is so funny. The boys have decorated for Fall. I love their sign about the table and all the Fall artwork on the slider.

Pumpkin donuts and apples at the Pumpkin patch.

Lucia picked her first Washington Apple!
Apple picking with my big brother.
Pumpkins! Pumpkins and more Pumpkins!

Kisses for the pumpkins on the porch.
I thought Lucia looked so cute in her Halloween outfit.

The Blue Sharks season came to an end today. Keagan and Kinkade with their good friend Shayden. Shot on goal from Keagan .

Daddy first day on the job.

Lucia loves to sit in her brother's lap now. . . well when it is her decision.

Happy Fall everyone. . . we love Fall around here it is by far our favorite season! Big week coming up with Halloween and the boys birthday coming up!

check out It is a clothing blog we have started to raise money for adoptions and orphans and I think Lucia would look adorable in the outfits!
