Let's Click {mar.3~9}

This week was much quieter than last week, but still full of happy memories to capture and share.
 {mar.3} E, and S, were making a little mechanical toy run loose in the living room, and baby W would giggle and then chase after as fast as he could.  It was so sweet to see them all enjoying playing together.
 {mar. 4} We took water dyed food coloring, droppers, and a baster outside and went "painting".  This was the last thing on my winter bucket list, and I was so grateful the Lord provided the snow.  After painting we went sledding and had a snowball fight.  (Our painting was totally inspired by the Still Family.)
 {mar. 5} We started My Father's World Kindergarten this week, and S had a great time.  He enjoyed making play dough S's, and his face just cracked me up.
 {mar. 6} Our sun snack, half an orange and crinkle cut carrots.
 {mar. 7} E and s cut up a shoe box, and drew the city of Jerusalem inside, then created this game.  The goal was to make good choices so you could keep moving forward on the path.  I love listening to their choices of "singing a good song", "reading the scriptures", and "saying your prayers".
 {mar. 8} We're learning about the sun this week and did a little experiment.  We planted two cups of lettuce seeds, and then put one on the counter and another in a dark cabinet.  Today we compared them and saw how the ones in the sun were shorter and greener, and the ones growing in the dark were pale, taller, and generally less healthy.  We also talked to the little ones about how we need the Son as light in our lives.  (We decided to save our seeds that had been growing in the dark, and I'm pleased to saying, they're making a comeback.  I feel a lesson on repentance coming on.)
{mar. 9}  Daddy loves that W photo-bombed V, and I love how cute she is with her cookie and jug of milk.  Grandma and I just couldn't pass those bottles up when we went to thet store the other day.  I think maybe we need adult supervision when we go out.  Colleen, wanna be the adult next time?

Now that I'm caught up on Let's Click again maybe I'll get really motivated later in the week and post about our mini vacation to Jamestown... maybe.

Let's Click {feb.24~mar.2}

Yup, behind again.  What can I say, I'm not a faithful blogger, but at least I'm a faithful photographer.  

Here's our week:
 {Feb. 24} The little ones decided to open an art gallery, complete with directional signs on how to get there.
 When I arrived at the gallery, the art was all spread out for viewing. 
 {Feb. 25} V went out and scooped snow into an empty ice cream container then sat on the floor to share with W.  She is such a generous girl!
 {Feb. 26} We had another unexpected snow that gave me the chance to do some unfinished activities I had planned, like "hiding" red hearts in the snow for everyone to find when they went out to play.
 We also finally made our outdoor ice sculpture and hung it up.  It was beautiful to watch it blow from my kitchen window.
 {Feb. 27} Our first muffin tin meal in a LONG time.  Nothing fancy, just hummus from Trader Joe's, and some vegetables and pita, but it felt good to even want to take the time to make one.
 {Feb. 28} Spaghetti dinner at the amazing hotel we stayed at when we took a surprise, and very last minute field trip to Jamestown. 
 {Mar. 1} We spent the entire day discovering life at the Jamestown Settlement, and at the National Park Service Jamestown site.  Daddy helped the three big one scrape out the inside of a burned out log with shells to help make a canoe.
 {Mar. 2} We had an impromptu Rueben dinner at grandma's after church, and of course I forgot the camera, so I took a picture of the leftovers.  Did I mention dinner was good?!

It felt good to want to get out and do things, and to actually follow through on that.  The last year has left me with little desire to actually get out, and even less desire to follow through on actually getting out, but my word for the year (hope) and focused prayer and scripture study has helped, and I am feeling the Lord breathe life back into my heart.  We'll "hope" that keeps growing!
