Big Bunch of Pictures

One of our favorite snacks…smoothies!  This was our favorite combination so far ~ blueberry banana.  YUM!

Playing trains with the neighbor boys…you’d hardly know there were 4 boys in the house, as it was nice and peaceful.  (I wasn’t allowed to watch them play; apparently, they can’t pretend and imagine when they’re being supervised…)

Grandma & Grandpa S came for dinner, and they brought souvenirs from their recent vacation.  I had two happy little boys!

Alex is playing his favorite board game – Diggity Dog (or “Diggy The Dog”, as Alex calls it…) with Mommy.  Max is in the background playing with some of the extra dogs.  I guess we had an unofficial “hat day”, as even Jensyn is wearing her hood while she watches us play! ;)

For those who read my Tot School posts and see the mess of toys in the background, I’d like you to see that the room is often tidy.  The boys like to play upstairs in the morning, and we generally start school at 10 AM when the baby goes down for a nap. By then, the boys have strewn toys everywhere.  It really is a fairly organized room :)

(view from the stairs…tot school is off to the right)

Max was SO cute.  While I was cooking dinner, he drove his 4-wheeler into the kitchen, sat down on the floor with a book, and proceeded to “read” it to himself from memory.  He actually got quite a bit right, which is really impressive since it’s a library book we’d only had for 2 days!

I haven’t taught them any rules yet, but we recently opened the Connect 4 game that’s been sitting in the closet for forever.  Boy, did they ever have fun…hours of fun…with this game!
