Weekend fun!

August 12, 2014

Our weekends are sure to be filled with usually lots of activity. However, our past few weekends have been busy in the garage so play has looked a little different.

After being in KS for so many weeks, Katie was delighted to be back at archery for the last shoot of the season. There is something about 3D targets and prizes that make things especially fun. Now that she’s back home, it will be easier to be diligent about her exercises. Strengthening her arms and makes her aim more precise and her hand steadier. (Katie is facing away from the camera next to her friend with the blue hair.)

Clare was so happy to have found a surprise from Aunt Jenny (delivered by Grana).

Thanks to a generous friend, Jen scored Clare the best lot of Little Pet Shop toys ever.

Simply amazing how much she loves these little critters. In fact, when we go to the gym, she begs to bring one in each hand. When I pick her up an hour later, she’s still holding those two.

I hear little conversations from the backseat as we are driving. There’s sure to be one or two in my purse for every outing. I love that the accessories aren’t even so necessary yet. She just loves the little animals. I’m certain I haven’t even seen all of the animals as there are so many. Seriously fun though and she’s loving it. Ellie too for that matter! Well, she might just like a reason to climb onto the table.

I definitely find them tucked away in many places throughout the house.

Thank you to those with older children who share with younger children so generously. This house appreciates it immensely.

Long live a tradition started many, many years ago. Ms. Rebecca is always so gracious to give our kids (first Katie and Michael and now the little ones) the chance to help her wash her car. Today, the occasion called for church clothes or rather the urgency to not waste time changing.

What child doesn’t love water? However, it’s even better when you get your own water bucket and soap soaked sponge, and control of the hose and sprayer too. Simply fantastic!

Ellie abandoned her pacifier to play in the water.

Actually, maybe it was just to practice her dog impersonations.

I love that Clare pretends to not want to get wet (after she’s already soaked) and begs to be sprayed with the water while protected under the umbrella. Hilarious.

All finished.

Their reward for a job well done….goldfish and the chance to dry in the sun before coming into the house.

Now it’s the start of a new week and a school week also. New things to come in this week.
