~Josiah's starting to wave.
~Watching a spider take down her web- I know spiders are kind of gross, but it was actually a neat experience. This particular spider has been camping outside of our window for weeks- right in the middle. Until Andrew had knocked down her web half a dozen times, and she got smart and moved to the upper left corner that he can't safely reach. But it was rainy yesterday, and I guess she decided to do fall cleaning while the bugs weren't out, because she was taking it down. She would roll it up like a carpet, and then bite it all at once, or wrap it with thread to keep it out of the way... and she had a safe line the whole time, because whenever she bit (or picked... I'm not sure) a main string it would send her bouncing back. It was really quite interesting!
~Ruffles piling up behind the sewing machine as I work :).
~Abbi and Emmi's friendship with my friend's little sister. I have loved watching them get to know each other through skype :). And interacting with her and her sister and the rest of her siblings myself, of course :).

~The likes that the Pleven Project has gotten. They are still far from their goal, but they are getting there!
~Peter's love for "oatmeal cookies". A.K.A., my chocolate cookie overnight oatmeal. Loves that stuff. He asks for it every morning... the rest of us like variety. Haha!
~My KBR magazine that got here a few days ago :)! We are too busy right now preparing for our trip for me to do much reading other than bible study, but it will be a wonderful addition to our trip next week :)!
~Josiah's realizing my glasses are NOT part of my face... the baby actually started crying. It was hilarious! And, yes. I am mean.
~The squirrel that ended up in Abbi's frog tank... hahaha!
