Our Week

Sammi and Bella outside studying.  Bella being normal, making messes!  Welcome to the real world Bella!

School experiences – why those light weight bird bones are so strong and how bats identify their babies.  An attempt at making a fossil..   Discovering that insects have three sections to their bodies and how temperature effects cold blooded animals.                Cute Joy!

Sweet Alex is cooing and laughing.  I would think he would get annoyed with all of the attention he gets from little hands, but he loves it!

Wednesday brought my brother Nathan to stay with us while my Mom is in Germany.  He brought three puppies down with him.  They are so cute!

Living…swinging, Nathan playing on the Wii, and Becca practicing with her friend on the viola.  Auditions for next year are coming up.  We are hearing a lot of Etudes around here!May 20 052May 20 054May 20 056

Sammi found this great frog in the back yard!     Alex “sitting” up in the Bumbo!  Way to go little one!  Alex is just so cute!

Joy brought home more art work.   I had to take a picture of Bella sleeping on her vent.  I am really beginning to believe that this vent might leave my house.  Incredible.  I am amazed!  No more life support?  What a concept!

Domino’s now has a gluten free pizza, so Becca had to try it.  It was really tasty, but she says there was some gluten somewhere because she could feel the effects later.  Oh well, worth a try!

Such a cool woodpecker!       Nathan and Sammi playing “poke.”

Friday night Becca went to the Houston Symphony with TFME (Texas Future Music Educators).  They went to Hard Rock Café and then to the Symphony.  There was nothing at Hard Rock that was gluten free. So she had the meat, cheese, and a coke for $20 please.  Little disappointing.  Afterwards, they got to get up on stage at Jones Hall and meet some of the musicians.  That part was very cool!

First off, my apologizes to Donna – we didn’t tell you we were taking pictures!  Smile  How I loved this afternoon!  The girls were getting antsy after Stake Conference.  So we decided to go for a ride – to Donna and Brad’s.  I whipped up some birthday cookies and we all piled into the van – even Bella.  We just went.  It felt so wonderful to be able to be spontaneous! 

Thanks for letting us stop in Leavitts!  Happy birthday to both of you!

I was so surprised that you were able to bring Bella out this far. But I am so happy for her amazing progress! It was so wonderful to see your family!
