Our Savior's love, shines like the sun with perfect light. As from above, it breaks through clouds of strife.

Fun fall activities

Observation day in ballet... the best part was when she got to invite her sisters to join her for free dance.

"Night of the Notables"- C researched Harriet Tubman and got to present a poster/project, read an origial poem, and answer clues about her life.  


Disney on ice.  I'm grateful to have little girls.  :)

I'm so glad when Daddy comes home



Greg has taken a couple of trips to Ireland for work.  The girls are so jealous because they want to go there to see all of the fairies that live there.  

One time there were no cabs at the airport when he got home, so they put him in a limo for the same price.  It totally cracked us up to see him pull up in that.  



On another trip he visited China and brought these back for the girls.  I put on Gilbert and Sullivan's Three Little Maids and let them dance!

Morning Shenanigans

SJ is an early bird... we usually wake up to see her in the middle of a mad scientist type experiment

Or sometimes she prepares "breakfast in bed" for us.


One morning I found these 3 all cuddled up in a chair playing pretend ponies (the hands were the ponies) with S.
