What We've Been Up To

Just a warning...there are lots of pictures with this post. Grandparents, I know this will make you all happy!!!

The first set is Chloe in her new apron. She received this as a "Friday Treat." She has a chore chart that she does every day. At the end of the week, we add up how many stars she has earned and she gets a dime for each star. The money she gets then goes into a "savings bank, piggy bank, and God's money bank." BUT, she can earn bonuses for helping me out around the house, being extra polite, saying or doing kind things for others, etc... These bonuses earn her the "Friday treats." So, she got an apron last week and we decided to make muffins with our freshly picked strawberries the next day. Here are some pics...



Putting the muffin mix in the bowl


Pouring in the milk


Next come the strawberries she picked


And finally a pose with the apron




The next pictures are of us at the fountain downtown after we had visited the public square farmers market. We definitely had a great time here!


Just starting to play


Cassidy and Chloe. We've known Cassidy and her family for about 3 years now and their
 friendship has been a blessing to our family.


Brody playing with the actual water sprayers. I turned my back and he
 had turned the sprayers out so they were spraying the sidewalk...and him!


Whole new meaning to "drinking out of the water fountain."




The final pictures are of the kids with their good friends.


Chloe, Brody, Sydney, and Kirk
They were all eating popsicles and watching a movie. And all of them wanted
 to sit on the coffee table to do so.

Wow in the last picture Chloe looks grown up and mature! Ah! B did too sitting on that table. I admire how you are teaching her about money at her age.
