wonderful weather...

i love this time of year! highs in the 80s, low humidity, a cool breeze! my kids love this weather too. in fact this morning the girls played outside for quite some time. they were swinging on the swing set and writing with chalk on the porch. the windows are all open on the house and the birds are chirping a sweet sound. i don't know if there is anything better! it was so nice that i couldn't even finish cleaning the kitchen or brush my teeth. i had to go outside and play with them. i wish i would slow down more to just play! (jen- this pic is one that daph and i did for miss ellie belle.)
this week was crazy hair night at awanas. spiky hair just isn't crazy these days so thankfully my friend had some color spray. henry and sage had blue and green hair which they of course thought was the coolest thing ever. i have to admit...it was pretty fun looking!


henry has been doing a lot of reading these days which i am so excited about. i pray all the time that he would have a love for learning but most of all that he would have a desire to read the Bible all his days so that he would know God more deeply. the other day as i was getting dinner ready this is what i saw...

hope you have a great weekend!

That is awesome! I love how he looks over at her at the end as to say "isn't that amazing?" What wonderful children you have...and being a Reading teacher...I am quite impressed with his reading!

so sweet! i love it!

you asked about M and Rosie's dresses...i believe John bought M's at JC Penney not too long ago, and i picked up Rosie's dress at a resale shop a few years ago (M wore it originally when she was about 5 mos. old to a funeral, so it's been around awhile!). it was either kid-to-kid or once upon a child stores.
