The Screamer

Kaitlyn is creating quite a reputation for herself as "the screamer". Occasionally she begins yelling out, not because she's upset. Oh no. She does it with a smile. It's somewhat alarming at first because she's SO LOUD. But after awhile it becomes humorous. I've been wondering if she's trying to say, "Hey people! Listen to ME! Look at ME!"

Until yesterday this mostly took place within the confines of our home. But now she's gone public! Her first performance took place during dinner at church last night. Everyone was staring at our table wondering what I must be doing to torture this child. People from across the room were stopping by to check on her. Of course once people realized she was just yelling for fun, they talked to her and encouraged more shrieks. One thing's for sure. She got A LOT of attention! I guess she liked it so much she decided to see what it would do for her while I got my hair cut today. Same affect. Lots of attention throughout the salon!

Fun with Food

Here's Hannah having fun helping me make brownies. She loves to help in the kitchen!

Kaitlyn eating green beans. She seems to like them, but she sure was eyeing our brownies!

Catching Up

It's been hard to keep up the blog w/ everything we've been doing. And now I'm trying to get my Premier business going again after taking an extended maternity break. Oh well. Here are some pictures from the last week or so.......

Last Sat. was Naomi's 3rd b-day and we helped her celebrate at the Bicentennial Mall Fountains, one of our favorite summer play places.

Naomi is examining one of her gifts while Veronica & Hannah are too busy blowing their bubbles to notice.

"Hey Ethan, how do you like my My Little Pony tattoo?"

I thought I'd throw in a picture of the capital building, which is directly across from the fountains. Notice the motorized scooters at the bottom. Apparently you can rent them to tour around the city. Pretty cool.

Last Sun. after church we went out to our friends Kevin & Tricia's new house for burgers and swimming. We had lots of fun!

Hannah eating at the kids table (without Mommy) at church Wed. night. More proof of growing up!

I finally remembered my camera! Here Hannah is before going to Cubbies. Our little poser. We are so proud of her! She is memorizing a new Bible verse every week. She just earned her first patch for being able to recite all of her verses so far. We are so thankful that she is already learning to hide God's Word in her heart. We pray that it will serve as a foundation for future faith.

Funny Football Story

Last Friday night we went to the Davidson Academy football game, where some of our students go. Before the game I prepared Hannah to cheer for the Bears. She enjoyed practicing "Go Bears!" Well, when the team ran onto the field I encouraged her to cheer. She said, "I don't see the bears." We did our best to explain why there weren't real bears there, but why everyone was yelling for them. She inquired several more times as to where the bears were, but by the end of the evening, she was yelling proud and strong "Go Bears!"

Also, she was confused by the fact that the announcer kept calling her name. A guy on the other team, who made most of the plays for that team, had the last name of Hanna. So, there were moments during the game where the announcer was saying, "Hanna...." every few minutes. Hannah kept looking around. Poor thing. Someone there said she must feel like she's in the Twilight Zone. A deep loud voice keeps calling her name and she can't find the bears! It was quite entertaining.
