John had his 3 year screening today with the Parents as Teachers. The little guy did an awesome job. The lady was amazed at how John could carry on a conversation about pretty much anything. He ended up getting a 92/100 on the test part, passed his hearing and vision screening test! We are very proud of him! He got tripped up on a few things, but overall was just perfect! He told me a joke tonight...
John: "Hey mom, why do chickens sit on eggs?"
Me: "I don't know."
John: "Because chickens don't have chairs!"

I seriously almost fell off the couch I was laughing so hard. I can't believe my 3 year old just told me a joke that was really funny.

Sweet Sophia has really started to pick up the language now. She is saying all kinds of words like "help", "Where are you?", "Don't know?", "up", "spoon", "drink", "cheese", and the list goes on. She is also really starting to point at all of her body parts and name more family members names. We went through a book tonight called "Baby's First Words". There are pictures and words below them. She was able to tell me what about half the pictures were on her own and the rest she was able to repeat clearly after I said them. She is also really into a certain puzzle, counting to 3, and giving knuckles. She gets excited when I am able to understand the words she is saying and cheers for me when I get it correct.

Life is good on the Turnbough home front. For those that don't know, I have passed my principal's I guess I am official! This was one of the hardest tests I have ever taken in my life. And not to brag...I rocked it. My score was 187/200. I had to get at least a 164. I am so glad it is over with and I won't have to take it again.

Matt is diligently working hard at church. The holidays are approaching so it is about to get crazy! He is also helping out with the house that was bought downtown beside the Hope Center. The hope is to redo it and turn it into a retreat area where interns can stay or people can go down to stay to help out downtown or have some solitude time. We are excited to see what opportunities it will bring.

Have a great night and thanks for reading!
