First time for the slip-n-slide this year. It seems to always kill my grass, so we might not get it out too often. Clark always seems to end up with his clothes off though.

New vampire in town.

Clark bit me twice on the hand in ten minutes, breaking the skin both times. Any helpful hints from other closet-parents-of-biters?

My little girl is into cars...

Audrey is really making me laugh with her intense interest in cars. She asked my friend Marla, "What kind of car is this?" and Marla responded, "A Nissan Pathfinder." Audrey said, "Oh, that is not made in the United States." This is coming from a relative of Ann Falloure who, after purchasing a brand new car, could not name the make or model!

She has also taken to asking God to please give us "a Chevrolet Suburban."

One of the members at our gym drives a SmartCar and this fascinates her.

She spotted it first last week and shouted, "SmartCar!"

I said, "That is a really tiny car, isn't it?"

"Is it really tiny, Mom?" she said skeptically, almost scolding me for exaggerating. "I mean, it's not like you could lift it with your hands or anything. A really tiny car would be one on a Christmas ornament."

Well I guess you can't argue with that.

Our little pioneer children.

Addendum to Mother's Day Post

In all of my praise of Shannon for Mother's Day, I forgot to mention that she takes pretty good care of me as well.

Clark's Swing

If you can't see his swing so well, it's because I've had to back up to avoid getting hit.

Tribute to Mom

Shannon is the greatest mother that I could ever imagine to raise my children. I know that my children are being raised in a environment of unconditional love where the learn Biblical principles daily. There is never a dull moment in our house with Shannon but we wouldn't have it any other way. Some of these pictures are repeats, but they are my favorites of a great mother and our precious children. Shannon- thank you for everything you do. You have a incredibly hard, never ceasing job but I think you can see some of the fruits of your labor if you look our children's faces in these pictures.

Breaking news...

We've been working on potty training with Clark this week and he's been doing great! Today is his first full day with no accidents! (Unless Anna comes along and says he had one during Sunday School). He still has not successfully used a public toliet so I am unfortunately dragging the toddler toliet everywhere I go, but anything to save some $ on diapers!
