Our family took in our school carnival on Friday night and I have to say that it was the best $20 spent on entertainment that we've all had in a long time. That picture of Wyndham is her smiling and showing me her ticket as she waited in line to throw wet sponges at one of the highschoolers in the booth. She was too nice when it came to throwing her sponges though...and she did what she could to avoid hitting the face in the hole. It was cute to see her want to play- but making up her own rules. Bella, on the otherhand, had no problem throwing directly at the hole and even tried to move up a step or two closer with each turn.
There were hot dogs and face painting, cotton candy and 'jail', which Brock was happy to avoid as much as he could. We cashed in some tickets for a rainbow kite at the end of the night, and that was yesterday's entertainment. We needed more wind to make the kite fly higher and longer, but still, it was a lot of fun for everyone.
We are enjoying longer, sunshiny days- even though it means Chip is away long hours at the Club. I know he loves his job and part of what drives me to want to stay on top the household chores while he is away is so that we won't have to spend time catching up on 'stuff' when is he around.
It's not summer yet, but it feels good just to know that it's coming. And I am so happy that Wyndham is making ongoing progress and really seems to be happy be outside and doing most of the same activities that all the other kids do. She's a great sport and the other kids are great right back to her and such encouragers for her to try things for herself. I'm a lucky Mom to have active, healthy kids right now. I think the new baby is going to fit right in too {moving all the time now!}.

jody-

I wish I could "share" some of the wind that we've been getting here!

I could probably look like a pro if I tried to fly a kite here in New Mexico right now!

Looks like you all had a really good time ~ so lovely to see happy smiling faces!!
My children always love their school fairs and we always end up spending too much and taking home a lot of junk (ha ha!!), but it is worth it to have happy kids!!
Warm wishes,

I think we're missing one photo... the new baby perhaps? :) When do we get to see the bump?
