A day in the life...

Yep, she woke up with hair like this!

Back to green smoothies and milk mustaches! I love when the kids will drink my smoothies. Makes me feel like I'm feeding them something healthy instead of just junk.

Swim lessons continue! MA loves wearing BC's goggles while he's in the big pool! MJ is in a different class from the boys, although they swim at the same time. MJ has no fear of the water, but doesn't appear to have to coordination for swimming just yet. And the boys...as soon as we get into the wading pool they jump in, blow bubbles, and seem fearless. BUT when it's time for class they are just the opposite. Instead of just jumping in cannonball stye they sit down and slid in. They're just timid about it. Seems strange since they've had lessons before and really enjoy being in the water.

Little Sister Love

We are so blessed to have this little peanut in our lives!

We bailed on church service this morning. We haven't found our home church yet and looking for a home church can be a little tiresome. So we skipped the routine today. We stayed in our jammies a little longer than usual, fed the littles McDonald's, and went shopping for carpet remnants. Our entire downstairs is wood laminate flooring. It's nice, but feels gritty under our feet and we wanted an area rug for the living room and kids play area. We picked up some remnant carpet, are having bound, and will lay it should be ready on Wednesday. Overall it's a way cheaper option than getting a fancy area rug when we have no interest in moving it with us when we go. It was a nice Sunday to relax with family. I'm thankful we skipped church, but am looing forward to church hunting next Sunday!

We went out to buy stuff for the house today. Found ourselves at Lowe's! You know how they have kid workshops periodically? Well, they had 1 today, but we missed it. The boys and MJ were commenting on how cool the robot was (which was what they had made that morning). Well, 1 of the clerks gave the kids the craft to do at home! The kids were so excited about being able to make a robot. Can't wait to get home and put them together!

Out and about

It's FRIDAY!! MJ had school, but we went out exploring once she got home. No swim lessons on Fridays so we needed to get out! Luckily while unpacking I found their spy goggles which are perfect for bird hunting and finding other treasures along the way. Sometimes MJ has a hard time keeping up with us. Luckily I have a double stroller she can hop into when she gets wore out. Having the spy wear kept her walking just a tad longer than usual. Success!

Bradley & I are down to 1 car. Days that I don't truly need the car, he'll be taking it into work. Other days, he'll be riding a bike. But, if he's out with the car I'm out walking the neighborhood with the crew. Of course it's usually while MJ is at school. Plus it helps break up the tedious task of unpacking. Man, we downsized before coming here but we need to do it again. We just have some stuff that's plain ol

We have a great neighborhood for walking and spending time together. Our house is nicely situated right by a cemetery. No big deal to me, as I grew up across the street from one. BUT I can't for the lfe of me remember there being a digger readily positioned nearby to dig the graves. The boys love walking down to see it. I don't have the heart to tell them what it's there for. Honestly I don't think they'd even understand what I was telling them anyway so we'll just keep it on our walk route of cool things to see!
