a little bit amusing

A few recent funnies from Little Happy ... who often bikes with a Bible and a favorite bag :)

He frequently asks, "What time is it?" He learned this from me ... as I don't wear a watch ... and, more often than not, I'm phone-less ... so I often ask Jeff what time it is. This might be stating the obvious ... but he really doesn't need to know what time it is. Furthermore ... we're not the most scheduled folks ... we have more of a general rhythm to our days ... and not a set lunchtime, bedtime, etc.

Last night when he asked and I said it was eight o'clock ... he said,
"Oh, I fought (thought) it was twenty-firty (thirty)."

And what's really funny -- to us anyway -- is that when Jeff tells me what time it is ... I sometimes repeat the time back to him in a shocked voice :) For example, I'll ask what time it is ... and Jeff will say seven-thirty ... and I'll respond, "SEVEN-THIRTY???" So ... another time when Little Happy was inquiring about the time ... he did this too :) We cracked up :)

***

He discovered he has a gap in between his front teeth ... so he's been telling me ... "I fink (think) I lost a toof (tooth)."

I was cuddling Little Blondie ... and he said, "It's good to be here!"
"Why are you so happy?" I questioned.
"Dinosaurs," he answered.
Then he began singing a made-up song ... Dinosaurs Make Me Happy :)

a little hand thing

As aforementioned ... Little Happy LOVES singing ... especially singing in the car. He always does this little thing with his hands when this particular song starts up :) Oh, what fun!

a little pair of old sandals

Does anyone know ... how out of style are these??? Are they horribly fashionless ... or just moderately???  I think these are from the mid to late 90s ...

I think they are more ugly than not ... but for some reason ... I haven't parted with them yet ...

a little flyer

My little sweet baby ...



Little Darling ... turned three this week!  THREE!!!  You probably can believe it ... but I can't!  He is growing up so fast ... a little more each day.  When he woke on Monday morning and I told him it was his birthday and that he was three ... he responded with, "I'm still little."  Later on, however, when I was relating the story to Daddy ... Ezzie said, "I'm big now."  So ... he's a bit undecided :) 

We got Ezzie this big foam flyer ... and it was more fun than any of us anticipated :)  Getting in position ...
Success!
A second try ... and check out Foofie's expression here ...
And here :)  No, she didn't throw it ... she's just simulating ...
We really should have considered "Happy" as a middle name ... or something like that :)  Of course he can fight and fuss when he wants to ... but most of the time ... he's such a happy fellow ... and brings much joy to all of us :)
Lillebror {Little Brother} and his sisters.  Buddy was at a friend's birthday party ... hence he's not in any of these photos ...
We went to Culver's for supper.  Lillebror and his ice cream ...


Then, we went to a park because we hadn't had our fill of the foam flyer ... and we wanted a larger area to fly it.  Halo is about to catch it ...
She caught it :)
Foofie's turn ...
Nice form, Foofie :)
Little Happy needs a little help ...
Nice :)
Can Daddy catch it?
Yes!
Here we go again ...
Another successful launch :)  P.S.  It does loop-de-loops too when you flip the tail part around ... I have a little video I might add later ... and when it is doing loops, you can't really catch it ... you just try to stay out of its path
We also stopped at the playground for a bit ...
so the kids could do a little hanging :)

Happy Birthday, Little Ez!

a little commencement

A week ago ... my kids "graduated" again ... this time from sixth, fourth, and first grade. Thus far ... I've been to six of these commencement ceremonies and most years I haven't remembered the camera or I have had the camera but it was out of battery power. So ... these are basically my first pictures from an Eschel commencement {our homeschool co-op} ... I might have gotten one last year before the battery gave out. Anyway, they are not real fabulous ... but they are all I've got :)

And here is Halo's bird from art class ...
And one of her paintings ...
Buddy's Van Gogh ...
Foofie's Picasso ...

And Foofie's Mona Lisa :)
