I put this post on my blog last night, I thought I would add it to our family for those of you who don't frequent the VanderLouw blog much. Enjoy!!
Ray left about a week ago for Spokane. I told him that I would post lots of pictures on the blog of how we have been spending our time. These kids are sure keeping me on my toes, and trying to entertain them for 15 hours a day is exhausting!! I am sleeping really well at night, except when one, or two, of them crawl in bed with me!!
Maggie learned how to climb on to Elliot's train table. She gets up there then cries and screams until I come in and get her down, she hasn't figured that part out yet!
Elliot found the bungee cords in the garage and made some letters with them on the driveway. Elliot likes to make letters with anything he can- crayons, pretzel sticks, markers, etc. Great job Elliot!
Maggie LOVES to be outside with the other kids. She gets on the big wheel and just sits, or she pushes it around. I win the bad mom of the week award, my precious little baby had little sunburned arms after we came inside. I felt so bad!!
Inevitably, they turned the paint brushes on themselves...(Lori, you were my inspiration to let them do this!!)
They got in the bath right after this was done, Grace told me that it looked like they were swimming in chocolate milk!
The read lots of books-Grace puts the books in Elliot's little clothes hamper and drags them out to the living room. I also shaved Elliot's head earlier this day, I think he looks so cute with his little shaved head!
A couple of nights ago the kids all went in Elliot's room to play. I was so relieved to do the dishes in peace, as I heard no fighting coming from the room. This took them about 10 minutes, those are the pieces from the train table on the window sill. They took all the books from the book shelf and put them in the now open train table and emptied Elliot's drawers. Grace told me that they wanted to make a club. It was really cute...until I had to clean it up. I know I should have made them help, but I just didn't have the energy!
