This week brought our camper home safe & sound! The whole experience was a dream come true, with a bagful of nature crafts and a new sprinkling of freckles for souvenirs.
Yesterday Jake was invited to the wedding of his third-grade teacher. Watching his face as she walked down the aisle almost made me cry. I could just about read his mind...Wow! My teacher DOESN'T sleep at school. Wow! My teacher is a GIRL! Wow! My teacher is a princess! I'm in love!
This week, Em traded her chlorinated tangles for this cute new 'do! She thoroughly enjoyed being "the oldest" for a week. Her best friend, Catherine, came to town and stayed for a few days. They swam til they were pruney, had a 2-wheeler bike rodeo, and discovered Anne of Green Gables.
Although she enjoyed the company of her gal-pal, Em was completely starstruck by the teenage boys who spent the weekend in our basement as part of our church Youth Conference. She is quite a hostess and a bit of a flirt.
This week, Sam continued building his Spanish vocabulary and enjoyed his first trip in a canoe.
Sam jumps between two extremes--hysterically happy or happily hysterical. Sometimes it's hard to know which is worse.
This week has turned a doggy-paddler into a real fish. Gliding, diving, and keeping his face in the water....no problem.Luke was thrilled to see WALL-e at the movie theatre and caught his first firefly in a jar.
My new assignment is Early Morning Seminary. I will be teaching the New Testament to 9th-12th graders every day before school. I hope they like marching and fingerplays.
His reward? Flying cross-country with the wife and kids this week. Plus four weeks of non-stop togetherness. Let the fun begin!
