We headed to Memphis for a "girls road trip" to see the Broadway show "WICKED". Some of the girls decorated wallets or t-shirts for the trip. Carly decorated an awesome wallet. She is such a creative girl! I loved spending my time taking her to the show. The show was incredible, the girls were precious and time with my Carly girl was the BEST.
The Little "G' girls (as they called themsleves) made a sculpture of Paris while I was helping older sister with her schoolwork. As told my Grace & Bella- The colorful Eifel Tower in the background, the long, thin road with a car headed to the house at the end of the road. The grass is blowing in the wind. Isabella made the grass, the skinny piece of road, the Eifel tower and the "G" for the ("G" girls). Grace made the colorful car, the house and the 2 fat pieces of road. So creative....This all started out by making a heart and it got turned upside down and Bella said it looked like the Eifel Tower in Paris. What great imaginations & creativity. I love when Isabella is "learning" and we aren't even doing school. I LOVE HOMESHOOLING.
Isabella has started having sleepovers! Since she has turned 6 years old she is quite social bug. Her first sleepover was at her friend, Grace's house. Bella had a blast. Here is a picture of Grace & B watching scoobydoo at our house (her then 3rd sleepover). I guess watching TV is much more fun in a box! Notice how tired they look.... Those 2 have so much energy together-its amazing!
Well here I go again. I am going to try and start updating my blog more regularly. I miss scrapbooking so very much and truly have a passion for documenting our lives...So in an attempt to do that without scrapbooking-here I go.....
So much has happend in the past year and a half (wow, has it really been that long since I updated the blog !?!?!). We have recently moved-we built a house-I will post pictures later. We are really enjoying our new home and feel so blessed that Gods plan is ALWAYS the best plan. Even when we aren't sure what the next step is going to be, we KNOW that God knows, and He is able to do immeasureably more than we could ever imagine. (Ephesians 3:20)
I am sure the next few posts are going to be totally out of order as I put some of my favorite pictures and memories if the past year.
Isabella gave her hair for "locks of love". She gave 11". We had just had 2" cut off the week before for our trip to St. Louis for her adoption reunion. She had a lot of hair. I loved her hair but it was so hard to take care of. It was always getting tangled. Now it is so east to care for and so very cute. She loves it!
Isabella always keep us "rolling" with laughter and sometimes you just have to laugh instead of cry. After Easter, Isabella had taken 2 baskets full of plastic Easter grass and spread it all over my house (it was really fun to throw at each other :)0 but then she got carried away and it was in every room.... Well after a "couple" of days trying to clean it all up-now I have a new mess... Isabella had a friend over and they decided to try and "lure" the cat upstairs. I will let the video explain the rest...
We love to homeschool....One of the best parts of homeschooling is....learning and homework can take place ANYWHERE. And when spring is in the air- what better place to do your homework than in a tree. Then, how about the entire family joining in:)
Since I am not "on the ball" with my scrapbooking- I decided to go ahead and use my blog to document memories that I would usually document in the scrapbook- in high hopes of someday printing this blog and using it to scrapbook- although I may be a grandma when that day actually comes. But in the meantime, I thought this was a great way to journal, add pictures and it is "online" so if my computer dies (as it did a couple of weeks ago) at least I will have the memories..... I LOVE to scrapbook & journaling and would love to document every moment of this precious life I have BUT then I wouldn't have time to actually be making the memories:) I have a terrible memory- even things I think are really funny or important, that I think I will remember- I forget! But if I write down the little things, the entire event or moment comes back to mind. I love remembering all the funny little things my girls say or do. I wish I could bottle up all the wonderful moments and keep reliving them over and over.
I sometimes sit in amazement of the children God has blessed me with. They are growing up so quickly, especially Carly. She has been taking a Digital Arts & Science class at a tutorial this year and she is completing a "project blog" this week before Spring Break. I checked out her Blog tonight and was truly amazed at her creativity. I hope you will check it out, I am sure you will enjoy it. I am very proud of her creativity and mostly proud of all her hard work! Way to go Carly! http://hobbies103.blogspot.com/
This is my sweet, precious daughter- hard at work!! I am so proud :):) Luv ya Car, Car...
