Silly boy!

Last week, C kept coming out of his room saying that he couldn't go to sleep. We told him to pray, count sheep, think about his day, ect..... and nothing worked. I finally told him to get close to his radio and sing along with it (he listens to a contempory Christian radio station). This is how I found him about an hour later.
Another view of his sweet little face on that hard night stand.

Night with no power!

About 2 weeks ago, we were getting ready to put the kids to bed and the power went out. The kids freaked out b/c their fans, nightlights, and radios went out and their rooms were pitch black dark and silent. We ended up being without power for 4 hours so we had to find ways to entertain the kids until they became really sleepy. Above, they are playing with the flashlights and telling silly, spooky stories.
Next, they pretended that they were in a Star Wars movie.
The flash from my camera really lit up the room when Z was telling her story.
Here they are with no flash from my camera.......just their flashlights. We ended up reading about 10 books, told all kinds of stories, made shadow puppets, and played other silly games. They finally fell asleep around 11:00!!

VBS at Mt. Zion

The kids after a long, FUN week of VBS at our neighbors church (2 weeks ago). The VBS theme was Boomerang Express. They ended the week with water slides, slip-n-slides, and mini swimming pools; followed by lunch at McDonalds and time on the indoor playground.

They all made these sweet handprint pictures

Close up of what they say.
Picture frames that they made.
Fun pictures of them as safari guides.
All of the things that came in their "goody bags" on the last day.
Little journals that they made to record their Bible verses that they were learning.

Swim Lessons at the YMCA

Z is with the lady and M is with Chaz, the instructor. They were learning to swim with their hands in front of them and how to feel for the wall
M finally put her whole face in the water and didn't cry!!
Z LOVES the water!!
C is a little fish. He often forgets to come up and take a breath. Chaz has to tap his back to remind him to come up.
M learning how to float on her back
Z was a little scared to let go at first.
C had no problem.
M, friends T and J, Z, C, and friend J listening to the pool safety rules

1st Dance Recital

On Saturday, June 6th, the girls had their first dance recital which was held at the theater at the BJCC. Pictured above is flowers from their PaPa. He could not attend the performance and he wanted to wish them good luck!!
Here are the girls all "dolled" up with make-up and curly pigtails.
This picture was actually taken the day b/4 at their practice. It is the only close-up I have of them with their sailor hats on.
M, me, and Z about 30 minutes b/4 the show started.
They were SOOOO excited!!
Their first number was a ballet routine to "Good Ship Lolli Pop"
Z is on the back row on the left and M is on the back row on the right.
Z on the right.
M on the right.

Their 2nd number was a tap routine to "Kung Fu Fighting". M and Z are now on the front row.
That is all of the girls in their dance class. The 3 girls on the right were triplets!!
M doing a kung-fu move
Z (she had a wardrobe malfunction during this number. Her pigtail got stuck in the velcro strip on her neck and she couldn't get it loose.)
M on the left bowing.
M and Z after the recital with their participation trophies and flowers from MiMi.
I can't forget a picture of C. He had to tag along to all of their practices and he was their biggest cheerleader in the audience.

Swim Lessons

Yesterday, the kids attended their 1st swim lesson at the YMCA. The kids are participating with another set of triplets. (Their mom actually took this picture with her phone.) In the pool are their 2 swim instructors, Chris and Chaz. Sitting on the edge from L-R are C, friend T, friend J, friend A, can't see her, but Z, and then M. They all did really well for their 1st lesson and hopefully, they can all swim by themselves by the end of the summer.

Bow Heads!!

Z and M showing off their "bow heads"
They wanted to look like the little cheerleader on Z's shirt
C's toe is doing so much better. He is now able to wear 2 band-aids on it and is walking around on it really well. He goes for his check-up on Wednesday so we will find out just how well it is healing.
