    I’ll be doing a review of these Modarri cars soon. I’m enjoying the heck out of these cars. I also have the DIY one that needs to be painted. Once I paint that I’ll work on posting the review. The cars are so much fun that I made sure to fund them on Kickstarter. So, there will be many, many more Modarri posts and photos coming up from me.

    The cars pictured are not as they arrive. I decided that I wanted to make the dirt track car into one that has more black on it. I’d switch up the wheels on it because I’d like to have black rims, however the only wheels with black rims have bright green tires. I think that when I get my Kickstarter cars I’ll have even more choices for swapping parts.

    Andrew’s favorite piece of playground equipment at Play Group is the mountain. The mountain can be climbed on all four sides. It is called the Skyward Summit from Step 2. Andrew scrambles up all the sides of this toy but he favors one side in particular because he climbs all the way up to top and then he climbs through a hole in the top of the structure and lowers himself down to a platform right in the middle. Then he climbs out to the side and does a “Cliff Dive” into my arms. I think that whole cliff Dive” thing freaks out the other parents. What can I say, I love it when he jumps over into my arms.

    Around six pm tonight the sky got incredibly orange. I kept watching it out the window and seeing how it looked against the ever increasingly bare trees out back. I wanted to get out and get some photos so I asked Eva to come outside so I could take a few of her in the light. I really like this backlit one because of how the light hits her hair and give a sort of glowing effect.

    The leaves on our front tree are all but gone. It was past time to get out and do some raking. I fed Andrew lunch and then declared that we would be going out to rake the leaves. He was very excited to help. If only his ability matched his enthusiasm and willingness to help. It is rare when you can get both the excitement to help and the ability to do so in one kid. I know, I remember being a kid and having to rake leaves. I never liked it and still don’t as an adult, although it isn’t as bad as when I was a kid.

    I got both kids some small rakes because they always try and use the one that I am using. They are really just play tools and Andrew hasn’t figured out which side is up yet. His idea of raking was to walk through the piles while dragging his rake upside down. Then he abandoned it all together and started jumping in the pile.

    We weren’t doing too much serious raking anyway. I wanted to rake up some leaves for a set of novelty bags that I got at Big Lots. They were of a pumpkin, ghost and Frankenstein monster. They were plastic and cheap and very, very small. We filled up six bags, 3 of each kind, and called it a day.

    We started our day with breakfast out with Grandfather over at Morin’s. Andrew enjoyed eggs and hot dogs (Sausages). I did Eggs and bacon. We both had a nice time with Grandfather.

    I’ll tell you right now, I have no clue what Andrew is doing. During dinner he starts conducting an invisible symphony. Raising his head and arms to the sky while closing his eyes. I asked him what he was doing and he just turned and looked at me and laughed like crazy. It may have been breakfast for dinner, which he loves.
