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

funny book

9/1/12- SJ wanted to be like C and speak some Spanish.  She says, "This is how you say SJ in Spanish...cinco y seis." 

10/24/12- We were outside playing and C asked me if I had the baby thermometor so I could hear if S was crying (it took me a minute to realize she meant baby monitor).

10/24/12- I think SJ has been playing with the boys at school.  She makes things into weapons and after aiming them at us says, "You have a bweeding boo-boo!  Here's a band-aid"  Also, today she said, "C is the mad guy"  I think she meant bad guy.

10/30- The girls love the "Fresh Beat Band" from Nick Jr.  The theme song has a part where the beat-boxer says "It -goes a- little- something- like- this."  SJ sings it like this "Hip-po-pot-a-mus!"  At another part, the lyrics are something about a special day.  SJ sings "special today" in a voice that makes her sound like a street hawker with a foreign accent.  It makes me smile every time.

11/10- In the bathroom at Greg's office (a not-kid-friendly space with very high ceilings and therefore lots of sound amplification), SJ says, "Mom, girls sit down to go potty, right?"  She repeated this a few times before I reluctantly answered her from the next stall, "yes, that's right."  SJ... and boys stand up to go potty, right, Mom?"   "Right, sweetie... let's finish up and get out of here."

Fun Run

C and SJ have been begging to run in a race "like Daddy."  Here are photos from their first ever race.
Soooo excited!!!

At the starting line (Silvie and I cheered them on).

Watching them come in on the home stretch brought a little tear to my eye.  Are they cute or what?!?
They both did great and ran the whole way ("one WHOLE mile" they'll tell you).  When I asked C what her favorite part was, I was sure she'd say it was the snacks afterwards, or the bracelet she got for finishing, or the race T-shirt, but nope.  She simply said, "the running."  :)
P.S.  Clara got 2 stitches.  Here she is showing off her bandaid.  No accidents, just a suspicious mole that needed to be removed.  She was very brave during the procedure and can't wait to get the stitches out so she can go swimming, again.
