We experienced all kinds of typical fall fun at Colonial Springs Farm this weekend. Pumpkins, apples, pumpkin pie, caramel apples. It's basically all about the food for me. Nate enjoyed the cow train ride for the second year in a row, but declined our offer to go on the zip line. He preferred to stick to somersaults on the ground. He also got in a visit to the port-o-potty, because they're his new favorite thing. And who could blame the kid. Good times.

When Nate finds something he likes, he becomes VERY passionate about it. And of course, we like to encourage his interests. Other parents might be trying to teach their 3 year olds to read. But in our home we have drills on the home planets of Boba Fett and Bail Organa. Good thing he won't be homeschooled.
I stumbled upon a Star Wars Encyclopedia for kids and it was the best $16 I've ever spend. Nate has spent HOURS pouring over pages and memorizing the characters. Nate's devotion might be too much for some to handle (a direct quote from his cousin Tristan, "PLEASE STOP TALKING ABOUT STAR WARS!). But luckily, his best bud Jason likes Star Wars too.
