Fun afternoon

Ally came home from school on Friday, sick with a fever, headache and stomach ache.
So we cancelled our plans to go to Grandma and Grandpa's house and stayed home.
We kept her in quarantine as best we could.  I did make it to garage sales and found some good deals.
Matt got to mow the lawn and do some things around the house.  We let the healthy kids play outside.

 Lucy is our monkey.

 I just thought it was adorable that he grabbed onto the rope with his chubby hands.

 So Ben was trying to get a stick that was hanging in this tree and he couldn't reach it.
He grabbed the teeter totter and tried to stand on it, but that didn't work with 1 person.
Lucy ran over and wanted to see what he was doing and was taking instruction from Ben on where to stand.

 I love how she is on tip toe on the handlebar.

 Ben mastered our monkey bars today too, but he does them the normal way.
 She has mastered climbing on top of the monkey bars.

We love when we are ready early!

As a reward for being ready for school early, the kids get to ride bikes before we leave.
Sometimes they have 20 minutes and other times they have 3 minutes.  I figure either way, it's good for them and is getting extra wiggles out. 

 Cute baby Jonah started his first day at our house.
The girls were more than happy to hold him.
 Brigger wasn't too sure about the lack of attention.

Life's rough

She has gotten really good about laying down wherever she is and going to sleep when she gets tired.

Uh oh

Earlier in the day he figured out how to quickly get over the bar on the bench.
Then he tried it again and he got stuck.  So he was mad.

Time out is draining

She got put in time out right around when she starts to get tired.
So she ended up falling asleep sitting there.

They were tired.

The 3 middle kids were tired after we got back from school.
Well actually Jo fell asleep on the way to school and I carried her in when we got home.

Once again...

I only had 1 volunteer for pictures after church.  She volunteered her baby brother to help.
 A stick is a must in photo shoots?
 He is quite proud of himself and excited that he can be part of more going on.

Ben earned a fun night

For staying on green for a set number of days at school, Ben earned a fun night at the splash pad. 
They were all worn out, even Matt.  Matt ran from our house and met us at the splash pad. 

 Such a handsome boy!
 Lucy cracks me up!

 Such a good baby.

 This young lady is growing up too fast.
