Baldwin has really enjoyed the extra attention he has been getting with the kids gone all day. We have been going on long walks almost every morning and he is able to get the attention he deserves. He is 10 months old now and we are already starting to think about letting him go. The big question is whether we will do this again. At this point we just don't know. He has been such an amazing dog and we have all learned from him but I just don't know what goodbye will be like. We are not looking forward to that one bit.
A couple weeks ago our family hiked Bull Run Mountain, a trail in our own backyard that we only discovered a couple of years ago but this is the first time the kids made it to the top! We have tried with them a couple of times before but it is a long, steep hike and someone always had wanted to give up. Not this time! We were happy to be able to share the incredible view with them at the summit. We are enjoying the fall weather here in Virginia!
We had a yard sale. To be honest we did not have much to sell, but the boys (particularly Cameron) really wanted to sell donuts or something to the customers as we have done in years past. So I made some home made cinnamon rolls and the boys worked hard to get them sold! They made more than $50! We even had one guy come back later to buy more to take home to his family he enjoyed them so much! Mason held the sign and yelled to all the passing cars for the first couple of hours. Gavin was not really interested in making money and Cameron was stalwart and stayed out all morning. He didn't even stop to eat his breakfast and didn't eat any of the cinnamon rolls either because he would rather sell them! What a disciplined guy.
