Well, Jaydie had to have an impromptu photo shoot too. I suppose by making him take pictures I am completely negating the impromptuness of it. He is just so cute and my picture-taking skills are just so neat that the two must go together (and humble too). Also, as a little side note, you need to go to this blog where I have found (as if I needed another blog to be addicted to) the perfect combination of both spirituality and sarcasm; two of my favorite things. I must warn you though that if you go to the beginning and read the whole story you will be weeping within 12 seconds. It is equally funny and heart wrenching (maybe a bit more heart wrenching). See you around.

Hallie taught me that the doorway is a good place to take photos.
Nolie's playful way of saying "let me go!!"
Can we say class clowns?

Yep, I'm a homeschool mom now!! I have been enjoying the flexibility and the fun things you can do with homeschool but I'm going to have to be real with you all; I have had 2 meltdowns. One bigger than the other. That's pretty good odds considering it's been two weeks now, huh? God is obviously teaching me patience and flexibility; hard things for this super anal girl!! Pray for me. Truly though, I am enjoying it and I think Jaydie is too. Already we've gone to Disneyland (why I started homeschool in the first place), finger painted with pudding (you know you're gonna do that too), had one of our class pets die (we could probably get another one at a whopping 28cents each), and had a taste and smell science experiment. Don't worry, I'm saving all my notes and I have lots of ideas for you when you start homeschooling.

Can I paint a little picture for ya? The twin dudes were hanging out in the front yard with Rob and when they went into the garage he thought little of it. Then he heard the car door opening and closing, along with some giggling, for about 10 minutes. He eventually went into the garage to see what was going on and this is what he found. (the picture is with his iphone, that's why it's not as awesome as my pictures) Is anyone else scared? Do any of you guys want us to watch your small pets for the weekend?

The victim.

The culprits!!! Deceptively cute.

Rob's work had their annual end of summer BBQ and they just happen to have almost a million fun bounces (okay, like 7). We released the children from their harnesses (I mean seatbelts) and didn't see them the rest of the evening. It was just plain fun for the whole family.

The Heflebower's cute girl Isabella. Jaydie and Nolie (especially Nolie) have a special love for baby Naomi. No we don't need another baby.

My friend Dena sent a funny homeschool song she found on you tube. I thought I would share it with you and then you will want to homeschool and we can all homeschool together. Disneyland counts for school right? Go here... Here's a picture too for all you picture junkie's. Not judging, I'm the same junkie.
