Picture #1: This is a super cute pic of my 5 yr old! I found this so very funny! Here she is looking studious and all yet sitting in a high chair! haaa haaaa !!! I love LOVE my petite girls :) They truly are so very petite. We call her 1% b/c at her well check up this past week-she measured in only at 1 %! But at least she made it onto the charts b/c my 9 yr old has YET to make it EVER!!! I am glad God gave us petite girs-so girly and so sweet.
Picture #2: Now, you might wonder what this picture is all about and I don't think posting it gives it justice b/c it is really coooool! I took it tonight of my oldest going into the kitchen and it was so bright in there. We said it looked as if he was going to heaven! It was a heavenly picture :)
Picture #3: Cleaning and cleaning. Lots o cleaning! As parents, we are called to instruct and mentor our children, not just be 'their boss' telling them what to do. We may be surprised at how the outcome may not meet our expectations. Lately, we have been making the time to really show them, step by step, what is expected of their duty and how to attain that goal. This is truly hands on learning. A big shout out goes to my wonderful husband who has taken a great deal of time really 'being' with our kids and showing them. Esp. my boys. Let us not forget how a father has such impact on his boys!!! (Thanks sweetie, I love you so!)
Picture #4: Look at this marvelous piece of work created (without directions, mind you!) by my oldest! Amazing, huh? It is a satellite. Cool. Very cool, dude.
Picture # 5: Did I mention cleaning? Oh yeah, I guess I did. This shot was taken from ABOVE, as you can probably tell. Pretty creative, huh? That would be my 10 yr old son who climbed ON TOP of our 15 passenger van just to get this shot. That thought creeps me out but this shot, I really dig it! :)
Picture #6: Here is another shot from above taken of my 4 yr old little teddy bear man, working hard. So cute!
