The kids recently brought home some forms to fill out for a fundraiser. They asked me to do this so they could get a squishy ball. So, I did. Then a couple days later, they brought home two more books of forms, so I filled out those too. That time, they got a key chain. Katie left me a very sweet note with her key chain... Just thought that you all should know what I sold your addresses for...
Our annual trip to the cow pasture to fly kites.
Little Blue Riding Hood. Isn't she cute?
Our cheering section
Katie's Barbie kite
Chas' Lightning McQueen and Sally kite
Izzie enjoyed chasing the kites. At one point Chas' kite went down and Izzie was on it in a flash and quickly tore into it. It was hilarious.
This is a face that only a mother could love. How could you not love this face, though?
Chas: "Izzy is a shellfish" Me: "What? Why?" Chas: "Because she never lets Sophie play with her ball"
Driving to Cincinnati: Me- "Do you want me to drive?" Eric - "Let's wait until we get to a straight, flat part"
Walking through Wal-mart: Me - "Chas, hurry up!" Chas - "Mom, if I step on the cracks, I will lose my power!"
Eric took Katie and Chas out to feed cows in his big red truck. Chas goes a lot and apparently Eric lets him drive (steer) in the field. So, after Chas had a turn, Eric asked Katie if she wanted to drive. Katie: No Eric: But don't you want to be able to tell your friends that you can drive a truck? Katie: No, I'd rather just lie about it.
We were cleaning up the playroom (all four of us) and Chas was not helping very much. So, Eric reminded him that he had to give a talk on Sunday entitled, "I Can Obey My Parents", to which Chas replied, "But, I don't know what it means to obey my parents!"
