Art Class :)

Hubby has been back east this week getting our former home ready to sell. We're hoping to move  somewhere without white carpet more permanent in the very near future!! To make the loooong week more fun I promised the boys they could paint the wooden tool boxes they received at the conference in AZ last month. They took the job real seriously and did awesome!

Clint chose the bucket of yellow paint from the garage.

Clay used the reddish color.

Almost done!!

Good job, Clay!

Momma helped smooth it out at the end, but they did great considering it was probably their first real paint job.
A+ boys!!!!

First Day of School

Today was our first day of school. Yay!! 

First things first.........BREAKFAST!!

After our biblical character story it was time for book work.This year we are using A Beka, our local library, and various books we have here at home.

Daddy arranged his schedule to take the babies' nap time duty while the rest of us ran to our local children's museum. Children get in free every Monday afternoon during the summer. YAY!!! ;)

They enjoyed the indoor play area.

The wooden train set.

The chair pulley thingy.

The foam building materials.

The water tables.

The outdoor stumps.

The outdoor digging area.

Well, Clay preferred to roll around instead :)
( yes,his shoes are indeed on the wrong feet.......again. )

The outdoor musical area.

Every fun outing MUST end with ice cream. 
( especially if the teacher is pregnant......ahem....)

Summer Happenings

June was a BUSY month for us. It started out with my mother in-law and 2 of her kids flying in and was shortly followed by Hubby and I taking another trip to CA for a leadership conference. We rushed back home in time to finish Neighborhood Bible Time and VBS prep for our church.

A youth group from NC flew in to help us host both of those things and we really appreciated the help! Because of the extra hands we were able to do 3 different Bible Times during the day.

VBS was held during the evening and the kids had a BLAST! All in all there were about 70 different kids from our community reached.

My kiddos are growing and are into everything as usual. :) Callie is crawling and pulling up some now. Where did my tiny baby girl go?? We also have 2 birthdays to finish planning this month (July) and a conference in AZ to attend. Whew! :)
Hope everyone has and continues to have a safe summer!

Family Vacation (UT/AZ/CA)

Just got back late Friday night from our family vacation. 
Our first night was spent in Monument Valley, UT camping at Goulding's Campground.

 The boys loved being able to climb in the stage coach :)

 Hiking with Daddy

Our campsite was red dirt so everyone was covered in it. Myself included :)

 Night #2 was spent camping in Flagstaff, AZ

 On day #3 we arrived in CA. 
Clint enjoyed seeing the ocean.

 Clay just wanted to climb the rocks.

 Cade's first time at any ocean.

18 weeks pregnant......almost halfway there!!

My sweet Callie.

Walking along the harbor.


Day #4 was spent at the San Diego Zoo

Our two Ergo baby carriers and umbrella stroller came in REAL handy ;)


 Clint enjoyed climbing every animal statue he could find :)
