Caulk Art

The sun with one cloud by Beau
Cloud with lighting by Liam
More clouds with cool lighting by Liam

I love caulk art. They always say they don't know what to draw but once they get started they have a great time. We have had lots of rain the last couple days....but this was done on a nice sunny day. It's raining again today...maybe we can do more caulk art tomorrow?

My Love

I love you Handsome!
You are the love of my life!
I love waking up next to you.
I thank God for you!
I know God has great plans for our family.

Sorting Game

I have one of those bags in my laundry room that doesn't get that much attention but it should. It's my I only have one of these socks this load...put it in the bag and one day when I have time I will go thru the bag and make pairs. One day last month I asked Austin to do just that. He had lost the privilege to watch tv and needed something to do. LOL! In my house that is alway great for me...I will have you do things I just don't seem to find time to do. Austin didn't seem to thrilled about doing it but he pulled the large bag out of the laundry room and sat down next to the ottoman. He started to pull the socks out one at a time. Liam and Beau thought it looked like fun and wanted to help. So the sorting game began. Austin taught the boys how to bundle the socks together and watched carefully to make sure each one really was a match. They must have found 50 pairs! It was wonderful. Austin had been telling me he needed more socks...not anymore! We found several pairs the little guys had outgrown and passed those on. I did find a couple funny pairs in my drawer! Now the little guys ask often if they can play the sock matching game. Sounds great to me!

Liam enjoying a warm day at the park!
Beau loves going to the park!

I love this picture of Liam!
Liam had a great time going down the slide and climbing.
Olivia clapping, she loved the swing!

We had so much fun at the park today. I'm looking forward to more fun days outside.

Ms. Monique's!!!

I'm done with the DSS process!!!
I now have my papers!!
Ms. Monique's is open for business!!
I have 3 openings!
I'm praying to find at least once close to Beau's age so he has a learning partner.
I still have to have the city check the house....I hope to get that done this week.
Please pray for God to fill those spots quickly!

Compost Tumbler

I've had my tumbler for about 4 years now. I love it. Until last year I used the black gold around our bushes and tree. But last year Handsome and Austin built me a raised garden. Last summer things got so crazy I didn't get to do as much with my garden as I would have liked. So this spring is a fresh start! I'm going to plant tons of tomatoes. We eat so many. I'm going to use the garden to teach the boys about science and hopefully add to our table too!!
I'm looking forward to gardening this year!!

Lego Land

Neither one of the boys wanted to stop for me to take a picture. 2 days and counting of Lego Land on the table. I got Austin tons of Lego's when he was little. But I gave them away thinking I wasn't going to have anymore kids. I know Lego's will find their way to our house.

I took the Wii away. The kids were fighting and not listening. So the Wii is gone for a while. Today is a cold wet day outside so I pulled out Lego's. I pulled out the super big ones for Olivia. She isn't sure what to do with them but I know one day she will love them. The boys got the super small ones. They have been playing with them for hours. I think I'm going to start looking for more at yard sales this spring. I love toys like these!
