This week marks half a year! Can you believe that half a year is gone? Wow! I have fallen into just taking a quick snapshot of our day just to get a picture taken. To combat that, I have tried to take an "artistic" picture each day. I have not managed it, but it does keep me on the look out for that interesting shot.
Sunday: This handsome boy had a loose tooth and pulled it out DURING the worship service!
Monday: Avalyn bought her first technic LEGO set. She promptly put it together and had fun playing with the car's pull back motor.
Tuesday: We went to the pool for the first time this year. We hope to go about once a week to help teach a couple of the kids to swim.
Wednesday: Kyle was given two build your own model kits for his birthday. Adrian helped him put together the car. Kyle was really excited that the doors and the hood open!
Thursday was a busy day, and I thought I would take some pictures in the evening, but I did not manage to do that. So this beautiful flower picture was taken on Friday morning with the dew still fresh on it!
Friday: As our park day this week, we went to the pool again, but this time with the Presleys. (I'll post about it soon.) I am not sure what draws me to this picture, but I absolutely love it!
Saturday: For about as long as I can remember, Mercy has sucked her index and middle fingers on her left hand and stuck the corner of her blanket up her nose as her self-soothing habit. I have tried to get a picture of it before, but she always ends up smiling and being goofy. This time she must have been more tired because she let me get several pictures.
This is about the strangest self-soothing method I have heard of. What Have your children done to sooth themselves?
