Epic

Remember how I said I had helping hands on bread making day? Remember how I clarified that they went on to find more entertaining things to do than just make bread??

Well, this is what you get when a 12 year old boy helps in the kitchen…

Never a dull moment!

Sheaf of Wheat

Yesterday I made bread rolls for Thanksgiving. While I was putting together these…

Horse Girl decided to make this…

I had no doubt that she would pull it off.

Finished!

It took a long time but the result was well worth it. I should mention that Grandma also helped form all the kernels of wheat.

My Son the Artist

Now while I’ve always known Kaelyn was a little artist, I had no idea Kendrick had any artistic talents until this year. He started bringing home amazing drawings and he started doodling on notebook paper, and I was very impressed with what he came up with!

Here are his displays at the Art Fair.

My Daughter the Artist

We have known Kaelyn has artistic talent since she was a toddler. She has blown us away through the years with her various creations using all types of materials.

The kids had the opportunity of having art class this spring, taught by a local architect and artist and they both love it!

They showcased their drawings and paintings tonight at the Art Fair.

Grandparent’s Weekend

I haven’t been blogging personal things lately. It has been all I could do to stay on top of new puppy photos and announcements, so the personal stuff gets put on the back burner.

But we had a nice family gathering a couple weekends ago and all the grandparents flew to Spokane to attend Grandparent’s Weekend at UCA, the Academy that Darien attends.

The weekend was filled with music from the choir, choraliers, band, and the orchestra. The gymnastic team also performed. I’m excited that all of my kids will be attending next school year, and we will be living just a few miles from the school!

It was nice for everyone to be together and to get a mini vacation away from the chores of life.

Darien always looks sharp in his tux. He now towers over both grandmas, affectionately known as “Mema” and “Mom”.
