Little scientist in the works

The one thing Grace really wanted for her birthday was a microscope.
And my mother happened to still have my old microscope, so she brought it to us.
And here is our little scientist investigating the world around her.  We've examined all the prepared slides that came with the microscope like a dead fly, shrimp eggs, and sea salt and other things we found around our house like lemon seeds, spinach, and curly hair samples from Grace and straight hair samples from Faith.  Science is so fun.

He likes shoes

Benjamin has a small fascination with shoes.
When he gets quiet I can usually find him by the shoe baskets.
Where he has typically pulled every shoe out and lined them on the window sill.
Then he selects a pair to put on his hands.
Then he will either bear crawl or walk about with a shoe on each hand.
Smiling and giggling all along the way.  What a funny boy he is.

Benjamin has decided that he really likes his new truck.  It's just his size...

War Eagle!

It's finally football season!!!!
And Faith and Grace are super excited.
They dressed up.
And cheered for Auburn.
I'd say "Go Tigers!"  And Faith would growl because that's what real tigers do y'know.  Grrr!  
War Eagle!

Our new fire table

We bought a new fire table for our back porch.
While David and I assembled it, the girls had a blast with the styrofoam.  They made snow...
Then we enjoyed our new table by roasting some hot dogs and marshmallows.  I can see us using this quite a bit this summer.  We are firebugs, after all.

The Little Zoo

We took a trip to the little zoo today.
And started by enjoying a picnic lunch with sandwiches.
And fishy crackers.
Then the kids rode the merry go round.
Before we started exploring the animals.
We stopped midway through to see some animals up close and personal.
Really close and personal.
What a fun afternoon for a hot, hot day.

New Tonka Truck

We  bought Benjamin a new toy that we just couldn't resist.  
A Tonka truck!  
I must say that his older sisters seem to enjoy the truck even more than Benjamin.

Skate Day

Today was Skate Day at school.
And Grace took her rocking new skates with her.
She was ready to rock and roll in them.
We arrived early and David and Faith played some games.
Like skee ball.
Then he won her a pink duck out of the claw machine.
And finally the first graders arrived.
At first Grace watched the other kids race around the rink.
Then David helped Grace roll.
And they totally rocked it.
What an awesome time we had.

We went to the beach today.
And tried to get some photos.
It is so hard to get a picture of everyone smiling.
And looking at the camera.
And if a little boy is ready for his nap, it's pretty much a lost cause.
Little girls tend to be more agreeable though.
Especially if they know they can actually play as much as they like.
Grace was overjoyed at the sight of the ocean.
And Faith was just as ecstatic.
They ran and danced on the beach.
And played in the sand.
Benjamin actually enjoyed himself in spite of missing a nap.
And it turned out to be a pretty fantastic day.

Cause and Effect

The road is bumpy, the mud is cold, and the cats are sleepy.

The "Jenn Do"

Grace has a new favorite hairstyle.
It's a bun on top of her head.
She calls it her "Jenn-do" in honor of her Aunt Jenn-Jenn.
