Z learned about fall during preschool today. He got to make an acorn out of a Hershey kiss, mini nilla wafer, and pretzel. Such a yummy, cute idea! Also, I made mint brownies with the BYU bakery recipe. Ohhhh my. A bit of heaven on earth.

The kids had their primary program today. I'm still not used to such a large ward- there were so many kids that I could hardly see Z! The songs were beautiful and the kids sang so well! A received her first CTR (choose the right) ring from her primary teacher afterward. She was so excited. Aunt Mary says CTR stands for "clean your room". :)

Grandma Pew has been decorating for the holidays indoors, so the kids decided they wanted to decorate outside. Here's our Halloween snowman/bat.

My mom and I performed on Saturday in the orchestra with the University of Utah youth piano concerto competition winners. It was so fun to be stand partners with my mom and to play challenging, delightful music. The winners ages were from 7 to 17, and incredible players! It was nice getting paid well, and having free babysitting thanks to my family. I'm absolutely loving being with family-but it feels like a blessing and a curse at the same time, with Doug gone. Here's to one more day closer to seeing him!

For D (mostly) and your enjoyment..let the photo a day series begin! Today we put C in a forward facing carseat. She loved it! Especially watching her siblings' expressions.

So, it's time I keep this blog updated. D received a Fulbright grant to study in Poland and finish his doctoral dissertation. There weren't enough funds for our family of 5 to go without getting into more debt-not to mention D wouldn't be able to get a job there due to strict Fulbright rules. After a lot of prayers, we decided it'd be best for the kids and I to stay with family in Utah while D is in Poland for 7 months. D has only been gone 11 days and so far we're surviving. Everyone is so helpful! I will be updating with photos of the family often. Check out D's blog at douglaspewpoland.blogspot.com.
