dynamic duo

dylan has shown her the ropes and these 2 have officially joined forces in creating trouble! stella absolutely adores him though he is constantly in her face, lying on top of her, or pulling her arms. she is constantly laughing at him....and if she's crying he can almost always make her happy with his antics.

we love spring

some observations from our walk tonight....

-walking with a 7,6,4 and 1 year old is definately easier than walking with a 6,5,3 and newborn

-if 3 of your children are on scooters- always take band-aids along

-when a sentence is started with "hey mom, watch this trick" ... there's a good chance it will end up in tears.

-carrying a scooter, a 4 year old, and pushing a 1 year old in a stroller up hill exerts just enough energy to give you the workout you desired

-carrying a scooter is much easier than carrying a bike

-if there are worms on the ground, they will end up in a certain 4 year olds pocket

-there is a difference between a boy rock and a girl rock....and i am now educated

-always strap down the 1 year old. she gets very excited and likes to lean over to see if she can touch the ground.

-when you stop to decipher every sound, look at every dead bug and wave to every passing motorist/jogger you don't walk very far

oh how i love spring and taking walks!

a night with the needhams

Tim took Sydney out on a date this past Friday night to a Father/Daughter banquet the local Christian radio station was putting on. She had been looking forward to it for a couple months and counted down the days. Well, the banquet consisted of dinner and a concert put on by Jimmy Needham. There was no dancing much to Sydneys dismay, but she got over it. After the concert they waited in line and Tim bought her a cd and poster to get autographed by Mr. Neeham. Well let me just say this girl is quite the smitten kitten. She now goes to her room to "listen to her music", and Mr. Needham has made it to the top of her prayer request list, that he can continue to "spread the love." It's really cute.
