This weekend we decided to get tough with Hazel (to improve her and definitely Meg's sleeping). We've done it all before, but we're determined to make it work. Last night she slept through the night ... who knows, perhaps we've done it? We hope.

We had a fun time at birthday party on Saturday. The kids particularly enjoyed the large bouncy house the family rented. Henry, Hazel, Meg and I spent a fair amount of time in there. I think we were the only adults who went in. We were a bit worried about Hazel. We probably shouldn't have been as she had no problem climbing the ramp inside of it that lead up to the slide's platform and sliding down the slide (face first). She was very proud of herself.

On Sunday Henry had a pretty good time at church school. He's still adjusting to the whole idea of it, but it was much better than last week and he spoke fondly of it afterwards. That afternoon I took him to get some new Fall clothes at Old Navy. Somehow I persuaded him that he needed to go with me to pick some out. He told me that it was to be cold today and that we're getting snow. Perhaps I harped on the cold aspect of Fall too much?

8,000 halves produced just one 90% silver half (1952D), two 40% silver halves (1967, 1968D) and six proof halves (1976S, 1981S, 1986S, 2002S, 2003S, 2009S).
