Circus Circus!

Too much fun that the last day of Preschool is a big circus with real life Teacher circus clowns. I am so grateful the boys learned their 123's and ABC's and even more grateful that I do not have to sit through a graduation to be a supportive mom! I'm not so sure Alexander feels the same way. This kid sure loves his teacher, but not so much his teacher circus clown.

If there is one thing that my kids love it is a good project. For me it most certainly involves a lot of work. Most of the time even more than work. . .patience. This castle building project was no exception.

This is a really good sign. They are so engrossed and loving their painting castle world. I was sure that this project was something I could handle.
I can handle this. I can! At least that is what I tell myself. The paint goes directly from the paintbrush onto the castle. Loving for the great idea. Even my crazy wild child was mellow. Look how meticulous he is being. "Mom, wook I so careful! I so careful wif your paints."
"Mom lets do paints every day, every day, OK mom?"Even Sissy sis was engrossed and actually "painted." Got to love a good project.Then something happened. I'm not quite sure where everything, and I mean EVERYTHING went wrong. This is were it started. . .
Then it went from Bad . . . .
"OH. .. My tummy. . . not me. . . Someone else painted on my tummy.""But hey, if a little is good a lot must be better."
You know that is how their little brains work. . .if a little of something is good a lot must be better. YEP I am sure that is how they thing. That is how I think! If a little chocolate brownie with ice cream, peanut butter, and chocolate sauce is good and bigger one is even better!

She has the grin to prove it. . .We haven't seen much of this little devil. That is because he was "paintin' pictures on the floor ~ and the ceiling ~ and the walls ~ and the curtins ~ and the door." One thing is for sure, "We ain't going to paint no more!" On a totally different note. . . Check out this cute book here. I love reading it and the kids love hearing it. It is a daily favorite around our house.

Come Back!

"Take us to Oregon!" "Take us to Oregon!" These krazy kids are pleading for Ma Deb to take them home with her. What can I say they love their Ma Deb. It was a fun filled extended weekend and we are sad that she is gone. To check out all the fun times you'll have to go to her blog. Fun huh? My mom has a blog. BTW They are still chanting, "Take us to Oregon!"

They do look so so innocent. And. . adorable. Almost like. . . like boys that go to bed on time. Pick up their clothes. Treasure their mom. Boys that are calm and maybe even a touched relaxed. . yeah . . .I'm done! Cause these pictures have got the story all wrong. I'll give one thing to them. . they are pretty dang cute, but pretty big trouble. Thought I would post their little program from school. The words were a little tricky for them (maybe not, maybe they just don't care), but it was good enough to make any momma smile. Love them and their trouble too. Keeps life exciting.

Pirate Power

I can't believe I almost let a season go by without documenting our little soccer player. Hello ME! Most of the time our little pirate could careless about where the ball is and who is kicking it. Heck half the time I don't know if he knows which goal is his. He is just real good at doing his own thing.

Every once in a while the ball happens to be in the perfect spot, with the perfect amount of space and this pirate gets in the perfect kick. Makes my mommy heart sing! Wahoo!
But most of the time we are just doing this. . . swinging our arms, lagging a half a soccer field behind all the action.
Ah. . .who cares?!?! Max is a good kid and tries his best. Let's be honest, if you ask him it's all about the half time treats . . . . . . . and the medal!He's a keeper. I'll watch him pick flowers!

New Treasure

Found this little treasure.Pretty sure that the kids think that they can not eat, sleep, or breathe without playing it.

I mean look at his face. . . .he is pretty engrossed in this thing.
And look at them. . . they aren't even the "Pickering old women". . .I don't think I heard a single picker. Love them when they love each other.
On a mommy note, it is pretty dang cool and it entertains them for hours. At least they aren't in front of the television right? Television what? I might just get rid of it for summer. Have I gone nuts?
