Nebraska, United States
A would-be stay at home mom working full-time as a teacher. I teach at my old Highschool, working side-by-side with my own teachers. I blog to keep the Texan grandparents updated and chronicle our life for future reference. (In other words, I don't have a real baby-book or diary.) Comments make my day.

Water Wall

Over Easter I had to get some work done, so a friend lent me a toy that HAD to have been made with my children in mind.


Viola- hours of play!

Stair Tumble

So what happens when Daddy is in charge but sees weeds that need to be pulled
and
Big girls are running in and out of the house
and
everyone forgets that the baby is mobile?

Miraculously, Genevieve survived the stair tumble with only a few bumps, a VERY healthy fear of stairs and a head tilt:


Which lead to a doctors visit and now-covered chiropractic visits.

Lepper Child Iniciation

Falling in love with Daddy's spaghetti sauce!

Flying Solo

On a rare occasion I will have school off, Charlotte won't have preschool and Genevieve will nap.
Which is when Charlotte gets to do what SHE wants.
Which is what she does when she's with her siblings anyway.
Just solo.



This look of hers is my absolute favorite!

The Grin still lives!

If You Give a Child a Box...

Our monthly Amazon order came one day.

And quickly became the evening's entertainment.


I may or may not have loved doing this as a kid.

"WE HAVE OUR OWN HOUSE NOW!!"
-Charlotte

Eating breakfast in the "new house"
And then it was promptly forgotten about. 
That is, until I said I was taking it down:
One last Hurrah!

Water Play x3

My girls are water BUGS.  Seriously, this is their top "mom can we pleeeeease" activity.  I save it for when I have to get a lot of grading done. This time G joined in.


SO proud of her balancing act.


WHY do they insist on pouring water on the baby's head??

G LOVED it and annoyed her sister's to no end with her non-Elsa playing ways.

Using her third hand

To come inside

This-along with Charlotte's nasty splinters over Easter- was the day I vowed to re-finish the deck.

Easter 2017

This year's (non-edible) Easter eggs were full of home-made flower clips:

And earrings- both real and stick-on.
Levi is SUCH an awesome almost-uncle.





I have now learned why the metal thing is important when dying Easter eggs.

Cousins!

And the best Easter gift was...
A Spirograph.  Which Samantha rocks at.

Spring "Snow"

Samantha and Charlotte came RACING inside, begging to go play in the "snow" across the street.



She HAD to go get the Wesley's.  So they joined in.




Life as an observer is fun too!!

Couch Play

Genevieve's FAVORITE activity these days.
Scaring Mommy half-to-death by flopping and falling on the couch!
