We have been up to (our neck) with kids. Like always.
And I love that.
Here's a bit from our week...
Aislynn has been enjoying her art lessons! She drew this picture of our bunny and then used water colors to paint it. Didn't she do a great job? I think so! Twice a month a home school art teacher comes to our house and gives Aislynn private lessons. Avery and Alex did the same program back when they home schooled. Art is so much fun!
Alex got new soccer cleats. Yeah, this was a big deal. The kid carried those things around for days before actually wearing them to practice. He said he didn't want to get them dirty. You know, the thing about being in a LARGE family is that you really cherish the NEW things that you get! Even new soccer cleats. Do you like the color? Now I will have no problem finding Alex out on the field.
She folded these blankets all by herself. And she was very proud of herself. So I took a picture.
One morning I woke up to find these two cuties snuggled up in my bed next to me. We three stayed in bed a bit longer than usual because we were "cozy" so I got my phone and you guessed it -- I took a picture. Memories, you know. You just gotta snap them when you can!
At a soccer game this week, Andrew kept kissing my belly to say hello to his little brother. So cute!
Aislynn went with me to the health store in search of some supplements I needed ~ ugh this stuff...doesn't taste so good.
And finally we worked a bit in our garden plot. It had really gotten overgrown during the winter months. A bit neglected, even. But since spring is coming soon, we though we'd better get it in shape again. So we weeded and weeded and then pulled some more weeds.
Of course when I say "we" I mean "them" because I'm just not up to all that bending right now!
And Aria did her part. She enjoyed pulling up the weeds.
And that was a good thing, because there sure were a lot of them!
