Rain boots aren't for wearing in the rain!

So, continuing with the theme of my kids enjoying wearing its not just shoes, its rain boots.  Each day they put on their rain boots and then they go pretend they are landscapers or builders or that they are going somewhere!  They love to wear their boots!

First Day of Preschool!

Last Tuesday was Kaden and Mia's first day of preschool. They are going to an in home preschool that is only 2 hours a day 2 times a week and there are only 5 kids.  I think it will be a good experience for both of them to learn that when I drop them off somewhere, I come back to pick them up. 

They were really excited about their little backpacks even though they really didn't need them.  They felt really big but the only downfall was that they both kept telling Joey he wasn't big enough to go to preschool yet.

Silly Boys

Kaden and Joey love to wear shoes around the house, this time they got into my newly washed and folded laundry, found a couple pairs of Tim's trouser socks and decided to put them on with their shoes.  They thought they were pretty hot stuff.  Joey really liked his pulled up to his knees and Kaden kept telling Joey to push them down like his were.  When I look at this picture I am reminded at the size difference between the two boys......they are almost 6 months apart in age and worlds about in size!

Melody saying goodbye to Arnold

This is another picture of Melody saying goodbye right before we came back to the states. This, like the other "goodbye" picture, was taken by Ian. This little boy is Arnold. Melody still prays for he and many of the other children by name at night. It is really sweet the relationships she had there and that she still cares about those little ones over there.

Piper makes her daddy proud!

Tim is originally from Wisconsin and since that is the case, we have a couple of cheese heads floating around the house.  Kaden brought out this child sized one for Piper to try on the other with most things, except having the nasal aspirator used on her nose, she is all smiles!  

Fun with dress up!

The kids have recently been reminded and discovered dress up clothes, so each day they (the 3 older ones) have been putting on Kaden's old kangaroo costume, a dinosaur costume, a fairy princess costume and a tutu.  They all take turns putting on the different costumes!
