Life through the (cell phone) lens

Here are some cell pics from the past month or so. . . 

The kids admire a beautiful sunset from our upstairs bathroom.

I scored this costume at a consignment shop for $4.50.  On any given day, at least one of the boys is in it at some point. 

Even seven-year-olds get a little messy when eating chocolate.  (At least this one does). 

Bella hosted a tea party in her room.  The "tea" was chocolate milk.  We also had pretzels and fruit.

Coloring after storytime at Barnes and Noble.  Curtis usually scribbles something and is done in a minute or two.  This day, however, he spent a good 10-15 minutes and used multiple crayons (as opposed to the usual: one) to create this masterpiece.  I'm keeping it. 

Graydon and Bella colored nicely as well. 

"Look Mom!  Trees and a house!"

I chaperoned Bella's class field trip to the Academy of Natural Sciences museum in Philadelphia.  After keeping track of five first graders in a crowded big city museum, I was exhausted. 

When we got back to school, I signed Bella out early and we went out for coffee (hot chocolate for her). 

April 26th was 'Take Your Child to Work Day'.  Bella was Andy's Assistant Pastor for the day.  She dressed in one of Andy's old sweaters that I accidentally shrunk.  Her idea!  They were quite the pair.  She says that she wants to be a pastor or a teacher when she grows up!

While loading the kids into the car, we told them that we had a surprise.  We stopped to get gas along the way, to which Graydon whines, "Is this the surprise?"  They were all excited (and relieved) to discover that the real surprise was ice cream!

A picnic at the park on a beautiful Saturday.

I like Graydon's longer hair in the ice cream picture!
