I received an email from Lauren’s teacher earlier in the day with some of the details, but waited to see if Lauren would bring it up on her own. I enjoy hearing about what she felt was the important part of her day. Before bed, she came in smiling and said “Oh daddy, you will never guess who we got a letter from!” Continue reading
Today we just “went with the flow” as Lauren pointed out. We slept in a little, had breakfast, hit up a local festival, visited with family, went out to eat, then crashed. Continue reading
Tonight’s homework was to read Acts 16:16-34, which Lauren did out loud. She was to then write a prayer about being a witness. I was very impressed with how well she was able to read and grasp what was happening.
“Hey dad, can we go to the park?”
My first reaction was to answer with “We’ll see.” Which usually means no. But I thought, why not go? What do I need to see about? It was either a yes or a no. Would I want them outside playing or sitting indoors behind an iPad? So we went to the store to get some picnic items then headed to the park! Continue reading
At the park and we are officially hiking according to the girls. Emily said to me:
“Daddy, try not to step on any bugs because they are just trying to live. All they want is to have some life.”
The girls were pretty adamant about taking back packs. Lauren packed 2 stuffed animals and Emily packed paper and crayons. If we got stuck in the wilderness I worry about how long we would survive.
Lambie was left at gymnastics last night. Apparently this was not discovered until bed time when it was too late to go get him. So my mission this morning was to be at gymnastics when they opened so we could rescue lambie. We walked in and found him in the cubby where he was left. One little girl was a whole lot happier!
I got a call at work that Lauren was headed to the ER. She was doing cartwheels in the front yard and fell. She told Gina that she heard a pop and that her arm was hurting really bad. Better to be safe than sorry, right?
The Easter bunny is not something we make a big deal of. There is a basket of stuff in the morning and we try to make it something that is not full of candy only. Continue reading
These were Emily’s first school photos from Hampton First Baptist Academy back in Georgia. She hated having photos taken, something that has thankfully changed. Normally she cried and refused to take photos. The school even brought Lauren in to try and cheer her up. I don’t recall the year on these, but her facial expression was priceless and naturally these are my favorite school pictures of her so far.
A little late on this, but that is what happens with this blog. Rarely do I sit down and write up something the minute it happened.
For Valentine’s Day, the girls had to create a Valentine’s Day box. I really don’t recall what other instructions were given. Gina had deferred to me since I was “the creative one” which in turn led me to Google. Ha! I found a box online and showed it to Lauren, so all we needed was a few supplies to make it happen.
