Boys will be boys!!

I don't know what I did, but my images are all of a sudden way too big. I think I am going to have to figure this out. Oh boy... this could be scary! If I have only half pictures next time, you'll know why!:)

Hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend and ready for the Lord's Day tomorrow!

Horse Sense!

When we were at Country Corner, a man showed the kids how to drive the horses. He let each of them drive and spent about 45 minutes with them. They had a blast and got to feel how the reins felt and got quite a lesson in horses!

Lindsay Reading!!

videoHere is a video of Lindsay reading "Fox in Socks". She only knew how to read the first part, but she just found it on the shelf and started reading. It was so cute. She has reading books she does every week, but I was so excited when she found a book and tried to read it on her own!! Success!!!

Fall Days

When we went to Ellen's we helped hand out flyers for her work. The kids got paid for every card they handed out. They enjoy adding up the money as they go from neighborhood to neighborhood. Lindsay even got excited about it! She handed out tons of them! She was so proud of herself when she got her money. The other two were, too!! Hard work pays off.
A play-doh creation. --Lindsay has been learning some fun things in school. Her teacher showed her how fun it was to use play-doh and all the neat things you can make. It inspired her and even Emily to try some fun ideas.

Here is Lindsay and Sophia with their little pizzas. They were so funny trying to make them all on their own.
The kids also made little cakes and decorated them yesterday. I'll have to upload those pictures. They turned out cute.
Hope everyone's week is going well!!! Enough for now!

Funny Pictures

Remain calm, even when it seems hopeless.

Take an occasional risk Work together as a team

These are some funny pictures that were emailed to me. I thought I would share them with the captions they came with. They are hilarious.

Oh, and about the Michigan pictures, I haven't gotten them uploaded yet. Hopefully I will get that done soon.:)

Off we Go

I am heading to Michigan for a quick trip. I have been running around all day trying to get ready for it.

I also canned some apple butter, froze some apples for apple pie, made gumbo and potato salad and got things ready for Jeff while I'm gone. I have been so industrious! Especially considering that I had a regular school day with the kids and watched two little girls!--one a baby!! Oh my I am really amazing today. What is wrong with me>!!! HeeHee

I'll try to get some pictures posted as soon as I get back. See you then. Trisha

Welcome to My World

Here is Travis doing his work
Lindsay working with the DVD player. She is pretty enthusiastic for school
Emily watching Mrs Vick teaching English.

This is what I do most of my days. It consumes a lot of my time. One great thing though; we got our patio pretty well done and it looks beautiful! I will enjoy looking out and just staring at it. We put in a flagstone path up to the deck and it is so warm and cozy. Kind of a little like a cottage. I love it. I will try to get new pictures of it and post them. You know how good I am about that:) Anyway, we finished yesterday.
