Free Climbing

Free climbing: a type of rock (or staircase) climbing in which the climber uses only hands, feet and other parts of the body to ascend.  No artificial aids are employed to make upwards progress.

(in addition climber may yell, "Yook how high I am!" causing you to pause from dinner-making duties to check-in)

Best 3 Days Ever!

During dinner time, we often talk about the "most favorite" and "least favorite" parts of our day. 
Tonight we decided to change it up a bit and we asked the kids to share the "Best 3 Days of their far."

-Surprising Aunt Lizzie at the airport when she flew in from Cali last year
-Collecting and getting to bring home ALL my seashells from Outer Banks this year
-Swimming in Florida the time Daddy made me crunchy oatmeal (Christmas 2003)

-Flying to Florida on the airplane (2007)
-Going on family vacation this year
-Being in the delivery room when Lincoln was born
(at which point Madeline yelled, "I want to change one of mine to that one!")

-When Mommy took me on our Mommy/Daughter date night last week
-Going to the zoo
-Going to the park on Park Tour Tuesdays

-When I go to my class (sidenote:  He absolutely refuses to attend any class, Sunday School or otherwise!)
-When I do my sand castle
-Mom, I all done with my questions!

(he had some help with his)

Say Cheese!

I love me some binky.  

Hey wait!  Where'd it go?  Somebody yanked it again didn't they?!

Oh Okay, Fine.  I'll smile.

Now give it back.  Seriously.  Somebody throw me a bone, *ahem* binky.
