A dog and book

Every morning, when Nathan leaves for school, he has a cute ritual. 

He sets up his animal of the day and the book he wants to read when he gets home right inside the front door. 

Then, when he gets home, the two things he loves most are there waiting for him! 

Whenever I walk by it during the day, it makes me smile because I'm reminded of him.

Family Expo

We went to the Family Expo this weekend. The kids had a fun time!

Elsa-always a big hit. 


Reptile man is also fun. Nathan, did you know there is an alligator on your head? 


Elizabeth would only pet the alligator. She didn't want it on her head. 


A very huge snake!


A fun model train set up. The kids loved to follow those trains around!


Nathan up on stage performing clown tricks. He's holding the stick and whirling around the frisbee. 


Elizabeth playing with some kind of special magic sand. 



Ronald McDonald called Elizabeth up to the stage. 


He handed her a huge crayon that broke. Everyone laughed. 


They also had their picture taken. Then, his camera broke and everyone laughed. 

It was a fun outing. The kids saw animals, cloggers, lots of clowns, and brought home a lot of fun things like frisbees and lunch boxes!

A Cat Tutu


Elizabeth made a cat tutu by hooking them all into her undies. Very nice. Then, she made a hat out of her undies too.

A Warm Day!

Last weekend, we had a random warm sunny day with no wind! The kids played outside a LOT! 

They ate lunch outside. 


They did some sidewalk chalk art. This is Nathan's picture of a garden. They played baseball too!


Elizabeth's sparkly red dress made pretty red spots on the wall!

Bus Driver


Nathan wrote this cute letter to his bus driver. For some reason, I must have taken the picture upside down and it won't flip it for me!

Cute Things 7 year olds do

They write adorable thank you notes. Here is Auntie Laura's thank you note from Christmas. 


They make their own fruit salads. This fruit salad has oranges, bananas, apples, and almonds. 




They love going to the library and checking out chapter books. He's almost done with ALL The Magic Tree House books! 


They build great forts out of blocks.
