A few weeks ago my Mom made homemade pop tarts with the kids. They were a hit!
The kids continue to wow me with their amazing drawing skills.
Here is their latest drawing they completed this past Friday. It took them every bit of five days, but I think it turned out really well.
William (He is now back to being home schooled.)
A few nights ago Caleb met Rainn Wilson at his college. Did you know he founded Soul Pancake?
This past Sunday we had a little appreciation barbecue. As John was barbecuing hamburgers and hot dogs, this Good Year blimp flew overhead. By the time I found my camera, it was nearly out of sight.
Here is Sherry (from church) and my Mom.
Here is Steve, Kathy, and Mike (from church.) All four of them faithfully serve others at church week after week, so we wanted to show our appreciation through serving them a meal.
Here is "Kitty Breath Noodles" fast asleep after lunch. Yes, that is one of her nick names given to her by Anastasia-- and crazy as it sounds, it fits. :)
Meet the newest member of our family-- Ginger. We rescued her from the same kill shelter that we got Lexi from. It is obvious that Ginger was abused and starved but she is the sweetest dog ever!
This picture was taken the first day we brought her home. Poor thing was spayed earlier in the day, so she was not feeling very well.
By the next day she was busy exploring her new home.
This picture was taken just four days later and it looks as if she has already put some
meat on her bones.
It is interesting to see how much Lexi has changed now that Ginger is part of the family. Ginger is a few years older and much calmer than Lexi. This has made Lexi calmer too. Here I thought that having two dogs was going to be a lot more work, when in reality, Ginger's presence has mellowed out Lexi in a most wonderful way.
