The girls making baklava for our Mediterranean study.   Jessi thought it was heaven.  I took some to church that night.  One lady told me it was the best she had ever tasted!  Way to go girls!

The girls and I have been studying different types  of nests.  So we made some cup nests.  Well, we decided that birds are pretty amazing – it’s a lot harder than it looks!  Our materials then our nests

Saturday we stained the playset and did some clean up.  Jason found this HUGE mushroom.  We had to show Sammi!  Then we headed up to the farm!  When we told Joy we were going to Grandma’s, she started signing “cow.”

They have new puppies!!

Then I was on baby duty while everyone picked berries!

The girls stayed to play with Mandy and be at the farm.  I had forgotten how much I like it out there.  The space and the quiet are good for my soul.  Jason and I brought home some mountain laurels for our yard that were growing up by the front lake.

A first!  All three babies in our bed on a Sunday morning.  Bella usually can’t get straight off the vent.  She is doing so awesome right now!

She started the day with her glasses on, but they ended up with teddy!

Hanging out with Daddy

Lizzy finished her 2nd chapter book!  Sammi doing Personal Progress while holding Didi!  Another first – I took Bella outside and she wanted down, so I put her on the grass.  She crawled all over the grass.  That is dirt – real dirt on Bella!  Wahoo!

Sammi planted some apple seeds and they are starting to sprout.  She loves botany – this is my kitchen window – all of the plants are hers.

My pumpkin plants.  Last Saturday we planted them.  They are seriously five inches tall now!IMG_8344
