Some friends were in town a couple weekends ago so we met up with them at Exploration Place. We hadn't been there in a while so it was fun to watch Brecken get to experience it and to catch up with friends I wished lived closer.
Some days it feels like naptime will never come. But when it does, this is what is waiting for me.... : )
We've been working with Taryn a little harder on her letters, sounds and sight words lately. She's not the most.....ahem, joyful of learners. A lot of times we both end up
This is the sign of a house full of girls. Even the poor cow and horse can't escape dress-up time.
Made these tiny "bacon and eggs" the other morning for Bible study. I don't know why but I get a kick out of them.
Derek and I were debating going out to my parent's house after church on Sunday when these two took up the cause and began chanting, "Nana's house! Papa's house!" (Repeat, repeat, repeat) Needless to say....we went.
Swim lessons are still going great. Yesterday they both swam all the way across on their own (the short length). They were pretty excited. I think they spent more time on the bottom than the top and may have swallowed half the pool but I'll take it as they did....a victory!!
Do you watch the Bachelor? Have you been struggling with who it is that Ben looks like but can't quite put your finger on it? Conundrum solved....
Taryn has really surprised me a couple times lately with how grown up she's getting. Comments she makes, chores she steps up for on her own, watching her become such a loving, helpful big sister. It's fun to see but is also just a reminder of what a short time we are blessed to have her with us in our home. I'm excited to see who she will become but pray that I can enjoy and remember each step of the way. And that I won't slack in my role of guiding her to be a people-loving and God-fearing woman.
Papa typically has something in his truck for the girls when he stops by. This time it was some cool glow bracelets. They made for quite the evening. When the sun went down we turned out all the lights and played for about and hour in the pitch black. The girls loved them and we had fun playing hide-and-seek with them, "writing" letters in the air, designing jewelry from them, etc. Taryn's slept with them every night since even though the glow's been worn off for a couple days now. Gotta love $1 fun.
I tried to tell ya. Randomness. Right now you're wondering how you can get that time back. Sorry, about that. I hope the next blog on your list has a tad more substance. : )
