It's the Simple Things

Today I listened as Kate tried to coax a dead bug on the windowsill awake. "Hey Bug! It's time to wake up!" she said sweetly. Of course that bug wasn't getting up so she gave up eventually.Or so it seemed.  Not 2 minutes later she was at the same windowsill saying, "Love you bug! Love you!" I love kids. They are such a master of living life in the moment. Of enjoying the simplest things of life. You know things like.....

Wrestling. As long as everyone is laughing it's  a-ok!

A tunnel made out of a blanket.

Using chairs to make a fort

The brightest moon I;ve ever seen.

Height check! Even for Mrs. Potato Head..:)

Kate's turn! She's 3 feet 1 inch!

Carso's turn!

I used my mixer no less than 6 times this week. Kate's getting smart about this. She stays close by inncocently asking, "Whatcha doin'?" She knows she can lick the paddle soon.

To do it right, you must at least get it on your nose. Now that's true enjoyment!

This week end I became reacquainted with an old friend, my sewing machine. It resulted in a sunny yellow dress for my sunshine girl.

Kate and I drew a lot this week end. Mostly circles. As she asked me to draw her each shape I obliged. Then suddenly she says, "What about a octagon?" Um yeah....that has 8 sides right? Kate's octagon is in the lower right hand corner. My girl's wicked smart!

I love watching Carson drawing. He gets really serious about it. He carefully considers each color.  

Carson is watching the sprinklers run outside. He's been helping Daddy outside a lot lately. Jared built a pond this past week and Carson helped Jared carry the small rocks. He took his job very seriously.

Again, so many great pictures! The moon one is beautiful. And I love Kate's dress. How did you make the K? The last picture of Carson is precious.

God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
