Just a few pictures to share… Just a sweet picture of you two again! Our new kitty! Our last kitty we lost a couple of month ago because a stray dog came around. Instead of shoeing him off right away as we should have, we were nice to him but at the expense of the cat we so loved. Though the dog is gone, we’ve never seen our cats since. We got this one local. He’s a big lover who wants his tummy rubbed all the day long. Something special. Grandma Pam sent the kids some stickers and their own candy bar. They have never had their own candy bar before… we usually buy donuts or something cheap and easy to share so this was a real treat. More special I think was them just receiving something in the mail. I think they’ll really be “spoiled” when grandma comes to visit after baby Benjamin is born. : ) Just a little excited from the gifts from grandma. Off to play with their new stickers. Leah actually picked the boy stickers – the cars. : ) She’s making roads to put them on.
I read a book recently that shared not to buy them toys so much but real things to play and learn from (tools, microscopes, musical instruments, etc…). I liked the idea and bought Matthew a tool kit from Walmart. He loves it and uses it all the time now. He puts boards and sticks together in the yard. He makes crosses from branches and brings them in to us. He helped daddy make something for his bees the other day the required a frame. Busy bees…. : )
