We’ve been enjoying the recent sun and warmer weather.
The kids are spending hours outside, instead of minutes. They play family, make mud pies, and use trees for homes.
Last weekend, we had a chance to enjoy a baseball game in beautiful weather. It has been years since we have taken the kids out to do something like this. So many babies and a tired momma has made it difficult to go to events like this. I’m finally starting to feel up to the challenge again, and it has been a really nice change.
What does she see? Well, a group of military veterans parachuted out of a plane as it flew over! They each landed on the field, trying to hit their target landing pad. Four out of the Six hit the target exactly! Very impressive!
And a “selfie”… since I firmly believe my kids will want me in the pictures someday, whether I have make-up on or not.
We recently bought a youth-sized football for the kids (mostly for Kyle). Shawn spent some time teaching them how to use the grip properly and they passed the ball around for a while. We also played a family game with Mom and Dad as team captains (Shawn won, since I can’t get past him!). Then we played kids against parents, which we won, of course. It won’t be long before they can beat us though!
The rest of the pictures are just playing outside pictures. The little kids wanted me to keep taking pictures of their “treasures”. So quite a few are little sticks and flowers, hopefully taken with an artistic eye.
And another “selfie”, because Lydia made me a beautiful grass headband…
And just a quick update, for those that have asked…we are still praying about and hoping to move to England. The complicated immigration rules have pushed out our time frame, but please continue to pray that the Lord will provide work here for us and eventually work in the UK in His time.
