i met a friend for lunch the other day.
there is a new restaurant in town that we've been dying to try.
we looked over the menu.
"what are you having?"
hmm. everything looks so good.
"I think I'll have the soop."
"with carit juice to drink."
these indie restaurants are so hip with their artsy menus.
the staff was friendly--took our order right away.
and served within minutes.
the portions were huge.
my friend was worried she wouldn't be able to finish.
so she sent it back for something else.
we were afraid we'd caused too much hassle, but they were so nice!
we'll definitely be going back!
Ethan, reading his Jesus Storybook Bible to Emma:
This is Jonah when they threw him in the lion's den.
God said, "Don't eat that! Don't eat that guy!"
This is where Jesus blasts off into the sky.
He's reading this:

We really like this one, because at the end of every story, the author ties in the promise of the Messiah, and points the reader to Christ. Makes me tear up every time! This would be a great gift for the little ones in your life. Even if they don't get the stories quite right the first time through.
The transition from two kids to three kids has been the smoothest yet. Even easier than the transition from single to married, I think.
One of the biggest reasons for this is Emma. At six, she is embracing the role of big sister with everything she has.
She adores her baby Ess.
It's written all over her face.
I just got back from a get-away with Donnie and the kids. I was thinking before we left town of how much Donnie deserved a little time off. And how much the kids deserved some uninterrupted time with their daddy. That made me wonder how much time we'd spent at home without him this year. I easily counted 5 solid weeks that he'd been out of town, and that's when I stopped counting. I don't need to know the number--I just know we had this vacation coming. And we soaked in every minute of it.
We went down to Galveston because Emma requested somewhere with a beach. We don't usually let the kids dictate our destinations, but this was also a reward for Emma's performance in school last year.
Each day the kindergartners were sent home with a behavior report in the form of a color--green happy face for a good day, yellow face for a day with some issues, and a red frown for a bad day. My little girl went an entire school year with green happy faces every single day. That is no small feat, and we were happy to reward her for it.
More pictures of our fun time coming tomorrow.
