A Day at the Farm

Here are some picture highlights from Jackson & Leah's field trip to the farm for the end of the CPO year.

Jackson either looking tough or not in the mood to smile for pictures


I think the calf wanted to kiss Josh


Leah not sure if she wants to get too close


Leah and Jackson checking out all of the milk in the holding tank



Leah feeding the calf a bottle


Lookin' like she belongs on the farm


Ready for a hay ride


Chillin' at the riverside



Jackson found some eggs in the hen house. I think we broke more than we found. Oops.

CPO Awards

We had the end of the school year banquet for the CPO (Christian Parent Outreach) program at our church. It's kind of like our Mother's Day Out.

They sang "Happy Birthday" to all the kids with summer birthdays. When Leah got up there she was just so proud to be the center of attention. Her beaming smile got the whole room laughing. Her joy for life is simply contagious.



Then it was awards time. Jackson & Leah went up together to get their awards. Miss Sandra told a story about how the CPO grannies turned around during play time and found Leah stripped down to nothing but a tiara and a bracelet at the dress up station.



Miss Sandra also told about how Jackson tried to outsmart the CPO grannies by putting himself in a self imposed time-out so that he would not have to help pick up blocks during clean up time. Jackson did not like Miss Sandra telling this story so he covered his ears.


Then all of the children entertained us with their instruments.


Before we left I caught Jackson pulling a pretty little gal into the corner and trying to kiss her. Oh dear.

Soccer Practice

Wow! 3 posts in one day! I'm making up for lost time. Here are some pictures of Jackson at Soccer practice today.

Running in for a goal!


Score!


Coming in for a water break


Ahhh...that hits the spot


I think he's the cutest soccer player I've ever seen!

Come Skating

Here are some pictures of Emma reciting her poem at the 1st grade poetry recital & tea. I was really proud of her. She remembered her poem and spoke very clearly and loudly. Not shy at all like when she practiced.




Her poem was a Shel Silverstein poem called "Come Skating". It went like this:

Come Skating

They said come skating;
They said it's so nice.
They said come skating;
I'd done it twice.
They said come skating;
It sounded nice….
I wore roller-
They meant ice.

Ultrasound Pictures

Here are some Ultrasound pictures of "Lou-Lou" at 10 weeks and 5 days. My scanner is a few years old so these didn't come out as clearly as I would've liked. Oh well, you get the idea.

Looks pretty plump for someone who is only about an inch and a half long, don't ya think?


See those little legs sticking out on the left side?


No, I don't think his/her arm is growing out of his/her head. But it does look like he/she is covering his/her face with an arm. Must be too shy for pictures! :)
