These two love each other so much!  I love to hear them laugh and to watch them make each other laugh!

And, this is baby brother's face when big brother got off the swing to do something else.  Look at that pouty lip!

Last Week

I didn't take a lot of picture last week, but here are a few from playing in one of the rooms at church during Connor's basketball game.

One night we went to Connor's school for the Cluster Fair.  Clusters are a once a week class in something that interests you (the kids pick their top five and the teachers try to assign them one of their top five).  The Cluster Fair was a night to show off what the kids had learned or made during the couple of months of the class.  The classes are very random.  Connor was in a Chinese one to learn about China.  Others included a science experiment classes, a Harry Potter class, a photography class, a sewing class, an archery class, and many many more.  I took this one in the photography cluster classroom.

We hope you had a great week!

Connor and Kyle asked if I would take them to Target to spend some Christmas and Birthday gift cards, so they each picked out a Lego set and couldn't wait to start building them!

We hope you have a great week!

My favorite nine photos from January 2017.

Backyard Play

Every day lately after school we do homework and then head outside...

We loved our weather this January!

Life Lately

Whew!  I feel like life lately has just been busy.  Just normal everyday stuff kind of busy, but busy nonetheless.  I really haven't taken many pictures, but here are a few from the last couple of weeks.

Monkey see...monkey do...

Watching big brother play football in the backyard.  He was in the "stands"!

My birthday was on Tuesday and I told them I just wanted one picture of the three of them on my birthday!  This is what I got!

I don't get to spend as much time as I would like volunteering at the kids' schools because of Paxton, but on Wednesday Jane Anne came over to keep Kyle and Paxton while I went to Connor's school to help with his Clusters class (a once a week random class that you learn about something that interests you).  He is in the Chinese cluster so they are learning about Chinese culture.  Since Chinese New Year is this weekend, I was able to teach his cluster about Chinese New Year, the Year of the Rooster and the other Chinese zodiac animals.  I made sugar cookies with a China shaped cookie cutter and the kids got to ice and decorate them.  We had a great time and I loved spending time with Connor on his own!

Welcome Home Daddy!

Jeremy was away from home in China for 10 nights, 11 days for work!  We missed him so much and we are sooooo glad to have him home now.  He arrived back late Sunday night.  A friend of mine's husband has been away also, so we decided to hire a babysitter for our five kids so that we could go out to dinner and enjoy some kid-free time!  It was so good to get out for a night!

5 kids + 1 babysitter = 2 happy mamas

Today we headed to the park to play with Daddy since he was back and getting over jet lag!  Three little boys were really glad to have their daddy home!  Mommy was pretty thrilled, too!  

Playing hide and seek...


Helping Daddy count...
