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

My Purple House

For the past year or so, SJ has been talking about her "purple house."  This purple house has just about anything a 4 year old girl could want...  unlimited pets and candy and beautiful dresses.  I often hear her saying, "That's ok, Mom, I have that at my purple house, right?"

All of that pretending must be exhausting...

SJ in the mud at the farm.  She is probably the opposite of a "stick-in-the-mud"

She still has a mischievous side... here is a photo of her haircut.  She was playing Fancy Nancy one day and filling her hair with barrettes and bows.  Little did I know that she was also snipping the sides off of her hair.  Sigh... we were just starting to get a full head of hair on this girl.  Back to square one, I guess.

SJ helped me get out the autumn decorations.  She added lots of thing she found in the garage... training wheels, soccer trophies, pinwheels, and caution tape.

She loves riding her bike (she got rid of the training wheels a few months before her 4th birthday) and doing the monkey bars at the park.  She loves to help... especially in the kitchen and with baby S.  We can't think of anything cuter or sweeter than a 4 year old girl.

Sick day

C was home with a stomach bug a couple of weeks ago.  This is how we passed the time while she couldn't eat...
Also... overheard, recently:
C:  "Daddy I don't want to be an astronaut because I would have to do things that aren't safe and I wouldn't get to eat good food and I would miss my kids too much."
Is she my child or what?!?

Rainbow shooting stars

Catching up, here.  C played soccer in the Spring of this year.  This team of kindergarten girls named themselves the rainbow shooting stars.  C really "got it" this season.  This girl has a competitive fire in her belly (I have no idea where she gets it).  The first few games were rough... in the pouring rain and against teams with some really good players.  After one really fast girls scored on their team many times, C was heard saying "it isn't FAIR!" while crying and running off the field.  After that, though, she worked really hard and figured out how to score and score and score.  She had a great time and it was fun to watch her.
