Bethany: "Why didn't you mow your face today, Daddy? Your chin looks kinda crumb-y."

Tuesday, September 28, 2010

Putting my arm around Rebekah prompted her to scold me, "Mommy! Keep your hands to yourself!"

Earlier Bethany told me, "My foot`s asleep and it`s not even bedtime. This foot is crazy."

Bethany`s quote of the day: "let`s rock and roll! That means let`s go. I`m going to drive this baby out of here!"
I asked Rebekah what she did this week, and she responded with an enthusiastic "Apples! Pick, pick, pick!" Guess she liked the field trip to Becker Farms.

Lisa just said she's never seen Mulan. Bekah's reaction? "Are you kidding me right now?"

Abby is on the move!

A couple quick videos of Abby starting to crawl more:

Monkey Heads

Today was Bethany's day to bring in the snack for school, and Lisa, in all her awesomeness, sent her in with these:


Seriously cool, yes?

PreK 4

Bethany started 4 year old PreK on Monday. These pictures should give you an idea of how things went:









As you can tell from a couple of those pictures, Rebekah really wants to be old enough for school. Another year yet before she starts 3 year old PreK, though!

We are so proud of our Bethany; she's really enjoying school (and having Aunt Sarah for a teacher), and we're having a great time watching her grow into this new phase of her life!

Because parents, too, occasionally do interesting things

It's a fact: I left my family in Buffalo last weekend (sad) to go to Columbus for the Ohio State game (not sad), and our seats for both the skull session (which I enjoyed with my parents & some college friends) and the game itself were awesome.





Making faces

It's a fact: Aunt Sarah is a weirdo (also possibly factual: Sarah may have some choice words for me when she sees this). Also, happy belated birthday (this Monday), Aunt Sarah!


Color their world

It's a fact: Bethany and Rebekah LOVE to color!

Bethany was sent to the principal`s office on her first day of school. That can`t be a good sign.

Rebekah Being Rebekah



I suppose accessorizing imaginatively wears one out past the point of caring about sleep positions.

Party at Uncle Mike & Aunt Mary's

Not a lot of actual pictures from our gathering at Uncle Mike & Aunt Mary's house, but I wanted to share a couple particularly cute shots.

First, Rebekah in the kiddie pool:


And all my beautiful girls, sitting together:


Sometimes all I can think of when I look at those four is that song from Sunday school: "Oh, the Lord is good to me, and so I thank the Lord..."

Couldn't be more true!
