Regardless, here are a boat load of pictures from the last few weeks:
Clover smiled at the perfect times during his baptism. He had just been introduced as a baptized Christian when this picture was taken, and he smiled earlier when water was being poured on him. He loved it!!
We discovered earlier this spring that Lucky and Charm had both outgrown their old bikes, so since birthdays and Christmas were not on the horizon, we decided they each needed to earn roughly half the cost of their new bikes (Lucky ended up earning over half of the cost of her bike, and Charm earned a little less than half the cost of his bike.) They did tasks around the house in preparation for our garage sale and kept careful track of their money earned with a tally that was on our refrigerator. It worked out well for us all, as Bill and I sure needed some extra help garage sale prepping this year!
Who needs a big house when there's this much love?
And here are some random things/thoughts/etc for you:
Have you seen this Thai advertisement? I just love it.
Purging toys before the big garage sale is usually rewarded by a couple new surprises in our house for Lucky and Charm. I ordered this kit and it was a HUGE hit with Lucky. Now I need to do a little electricity refresher course so I can explain it all:). And Charm really enjoyed this sand, which I picked up at Michael's with a coupon. Both of these products I could spend hours playing with myself. A win for everyone!
I'm seriously considering this technique for introducing solid foods to Clover. Has anyone tried it? Tips?
Or have you listened to this song by Minnesota Native Molly Kate Kestner? So beautiful.
And I'm dreaming of an outdoor shade structure these days. Something like this would work well!
That is it for now. Have a wonderful weekend!!
