good food and good eye

 Three of the four of us love sauteed kale. It is so yummy! Hannah did try it but she does not like it.
 While Hannah was resting from riding her bike she saw thing little praying mantis. She watched him for a while then went back to bike riding.

mystery egg and sweetness

 I saw this while I was watering the flowers. I'm curious as to what will come from it, if anything.
I went to tuck Hannah in and found this. I let them stay up a little longer. I love when they are sweet to each other!

Happy Father's Day

I love watching Derrick with the kids. He is the best Dad! He is so patient with them and takes the time to teach them new things, play with them and listen to them. I am glad to have him to do this parenting thing with. I did not take a picture of him and the kids today but we had a great day going to church and spending time as a family.

I am thankful for my dad, father in-laws and grandpa's. I have great men in my life who set good examples and love and support all of us.

Happy Father's Day!

Air Show

Derrick always says that we should go to the Air Show and we seem to always miss it. Well not this year. He ordered tickets and we put it on the calendar. It was hot, but we had a great time. The kids did great for the most part. It was really cool to watch, but did make me nervous at times.

silly boy and spcial visitors

 Hunter had a great time at Playcation this week. I am glad he was able to go and thankful for all the works who made the week so fun.
This afternoon when I went to take the trash out there were three mamas and 10-12 baby turkeys walking in the woods. Hunter had come outside with me so he ran back in to get my phone so I could take a picture. I would not get close enough to get a great picture. If you look close you can see three of the babies to the left of the mamas. We hope they will come back and visit soon and often.

You sleep much better once you build yourself a fort. Just try it next time you are not tired and someone makes you rest. I love this boy!

express yourself

 Hunter came home from Playcation and made this. Can you tell what they learned today. He asked me to staple seven index cards together and he started making his book.
Hannah found our old laptop in the basement. She learned how to type during computer and wanted to practice her skills. She has written several stories. She likes to write about the things she does that are fun.

I hope they will both continue to draw/write and enjoy it for a long time.

a project for everyone

 Hannah and I worked on making Christmas ornaments.

 Hunter helped Derrick paint the bathroom.
 Whiskers checked on everyone and then took a nice long nap in the middle of the living room floor.
 A few of the finished ornaments.
 We couldn't let the day end without a little bike ride.
 The bathroom is really coming along. Derrick always does such great work. I really like the color.

the boy loves dirt

This is Hunter's happy place. He can't stay out of the dirt when he is outside. I love it!
