Crazy Hair Day

The girls did a VBS at our friends' church last week and really enjoyed it. A few of the days were themed. Here they are on crazy hair day.

Chicken Sitting

Recently, one of Davey's best friends asked us to chicken sit for about a week. Our main responsibilities were to make sure they had food and to let them out of their coop for awhile each day. We really enjoyed going over to their house and taking friends along to visit.

Shaving Cream Letters

This year for our library's summer reading program, kids 5 and under are supposed to accomplish a list of activities. Most of the activities are fairly simple (go on a walk and count trees, let your child pick out a bedtime story...) but the one Naomi was excited about was making letters in the tub with shaving cream. We did this last week and she loved it (although I would say it is way to hard for kids her age to successfully press the shaving cream out and move it).

Fire Truck

In the last month I have found so much great stuff at garage sales. I have a list that I create all year of what we need and I try to shop from that. I definitely stray from the list because you never know what you will find... like a fire truck for $1 (when your son is in a fire truck loving stage).

Snot Rockets

We had colds go through our house the last couple of weeks. Drew is pretty good at getting his nose wiped (for a toddler), but he isn't great at blowing his nose yet. However, he has an amazing ability to sneeze out his boogers. While he had the cold, this was his face many times a day after a sneeze...

The Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, we went hiking. I did not take many pictures but I did snap this one of Naomi wearing her camo on camo... can you even see her in the tree?

I also took this one where we stopped and the kids just played in the forest.

RIP Chewbacca Fish

A few weeks ago, Andrew texted me and asked where Naomi's fish "Chewbacca" was. I did not really understand the question because of course Chewbacca was in her bowl. Upon careful examination I too concluded that indeed Chewbacca was not in her bowl. It took me a minute or two after that to spot Chewbacca dead on our stove. Apparently the poor fish jumped out and then flopped to her death.

We debated whether we should just replace it or if we even needed to mention it. In the end I thought honesty was the best policy. Namoi cried hard when she heard the news, but has done well with the loss. Just tonight, almost 3 weeks later, she asked me to tell the (funny) story about how I found Chewbacca dead.

Family Wedding

Last month, Malia traveled with Dan and Mary to a family wedding in South Carolina (there are perks to being the oldest grandchild!)

At the airport with Emmie.

With the bride and mother of the bride.

Hotel shenanigans.

Visiting the Billy Graham library in North Carolina on their way home.
