What A Week!

I just realized that I hadn't updates my blog with the newest pictures from this past week! I couldn't believe how many pictures were on my camera that I needed to upload. Ack. I need to start doing this daily. Sadly, my new camera has decided that it hates me and will no longer acknowledge it's own USB cable. I now have to remove the card every time (and thus risk forgetting to put it back into the hatred filled camera) I need to upload anything. This also requires my lumbering prego self to lay on my floor to inset it into our printer to upload the pictures. I will usually only do this only once a week and the rest of the time I'm left to beg Bobby to do it for me :).


This was this past Sunday at church. The kids were celebrating the end of Vacation Bible School! We were soo proud of Grady for staying up at the front of the church with Graham for so long during the service with out Bobby or I!


We also loved getting a chance to see so many kids singing the songs that they had learned during the past week. How awesome is it to see so many kids praising God! Can you see Graham's profile in the middle of the picture? :)


On Tuesday the boys and I headed out to the Library for story time. It was our first time to go to this particular library and we were so excited that it included a fun singalong as well as an arts and crafts project after the stories were read. The theme there for this week was Underwater Adventures. The boys got to make shark hats to wear!

Graham realized that he was one of the oldest kids there for story time but was soo good to put up with the more "babyish" stuff for his little brothers sake.


Grady and his shark hat! His poor shark needs some orthodontic work done...

Graham and his finished hat. His shark teeth are embellished with a lovely shade of green coloring.

They had an awesome time when it was time to start looking at books. Can you tell that Grady was having a great time looking at books?? :)

Graham quickly found his favorite section. It was the non-fiction space section. I love that he has soo many interest!

Yesterday (Thursday) we stayed inside from the heat and painted some little plaster figurines that I had. Graham painted Monsters and Grady painted Farm Animals!


More than just figurines were painted...

Grady saw that Graham had taken a couple of swipes at his arm with a paint brush and he ALWAYS has to do the same thing...

And as a final picture (lest you all be confused and think that I have a perfect family)  I caught Grady later with one of dried figurines smashing it against the table and then using the flakes as chalk to color on my kitchen table.... Ah well, I've always appreciated toys/projects that were multi-use...

Whoo Hoo It's Friday! I hope everyone has a great weekend!

I kept forgetting to put my card back in my camera so I bought a second one- now there's always one in my camera and one in my laptop :)

I like looking at your pictures whenever you post them--your kids are really beautiful.
When I read about all the trouble you have to go through to upload your pictures, I thought, "One day when she has teenagers, she won't have to do it or rely on her husband to do it!" My teenagers do all that awful tech stuff for me and they don't mind! So, don't worry, your day will come :)

I hope our library has nice activities like that for kiddos! I'm sad to admit, it has been forever since I've been...I really need to get to reading a lot more. The hats are so creative! The chalk/figurines made me giggle. I cannot wait for those adventures :D
