Entertaining ourselves...

For some unknown reason (perhaps insanity) my mother gave my children impromptu golf lessons the other day. Yes, all 3 of them. Was she surprised when they wanted to hit an actual golf ball rather than the wiffle balls? Not really. Was I? Not really. I think that if the clubs had been a bit shorter, they would have had some killer shots. Even with the clubs being a bit too big for them, they got some nice shots in. Luckily I was able to hide the actual golf ball so they used the bright orange and yellow wiffle balls instead without too much complaining!

Chalk...I have a love/hate relationship with chalk. I love to draw with it and I love that it entertains my kids. In fact, I've been wanting to try that 3D chalk too. I hate it because my children inevitably end up chalking where they probably shouldn't. Like here for example: These were Sam's purple "tap shoes"
And who doesn't like a little chalk on their nose now and then? I love this picture. Look at her eyes!
And how could I be mad about the small amount of chalk on her nose when her little brothers looked like this: (Hulk & mini me) Of course, if you ask me how they got this way, I'd have to tell you that it was Samantha that colored them! At least it isn't Sharpie, right?
Nash had his last t-ball game tonight. Could I find the game? No. Did I go to both Nibley Elementary & Heritage Elementary? Yes. I even went back to Canyon Elementary. No one was to be found. I feel bad he missed his last game!
Last week when the weather was nice we too the double stroller and the bikes and went down to Lincoln to play on the toys. Nash is destined to be a stunt man I tell you. At least he had the good sense to take his flip flops off before we went across like this! As for Caleb copying this stunt? Surprisingly, he didn't even try!

This little girl is bound & determined to get her entire fist into her mouth. She loves her binki, but when she manages to pull it out of her mouth she sure gets her fist in its place in a big hurry!
I have been dying to put this dress on her! It is a 3-6 month size, but I couldn't wait any longer! She looked mighty cute in it too. Now I need to put the one that is like it but has stars on it on her!
I can't remember if I already put this picture of Brooke up or not. I love this picture. We were sitting on the couch one night & Nash was off to my left talking to her. She loves Nash. He can get this girl to just sit and grin at him for ages. In this picture I was able to catch (sort of) one of the grins she was giving him.

I love how your kids use the chalk! Brooke is so darling in that little dress of hers!
