You're A Good Man, Charlie Brown...

Molly's class play was so well done.  The kid's worked really hard.  Can't help but think there was a little typecasting in assigning Molly the role of Lucy (the bossy girl who can't stand her little brother).  ;)

Matt's tripod...

Matt got a tripod to use with his camera.  Who knew it would be much better used as a space ship landing pod.

Matt is a natural fruit arranger...

It was our turn to be coffee hour hosts at church.  I asked my 7 year old son to arrange the fruit on trays for me.  Here is what he did (all on his own)...






I think he may have a future in this!  :)

bruised, not broken...

2012.060 - My ever so graceful daughter (she gets that from me) fell down the stairs and bruised her bone.  Ungraceful + crutches = lots of opportunities to hurt herself worse.  Pray for her...  :)

stray kitty

2012.059 - (picture credit: Matthew) This poor little kitty ended up in our back yard - abandoned and obviously hurt.  Animal control had to come out and get it.  It turns out he was hit by a car and was very hurt.  So little kitty, whoever you were - I am so glad you are no longer in pain.  :(

2012.051 - We had tacos in front of the tv for movie night.  All was going well until the kids accidentally let the dog into the room.  Well, I hope they had enought to eat - Finn sure did.

Matt in the first grade play...

2012.047 - After the strangest display of stage fright (crying that he was never going to "that" school again, etc.), Matt got up on stage and did an AMAZING job in the first grade's portrayal of "Anasi the Spider: How the Spider got his Bald Head".

2012.044 - In a attempt to clean the office over the weekend.  My bosses accidentally threw out all my marketing samples and research.  I actually considered going through all this trash to find my stuff...
