What we've been up to this week...

we have had one heck of a busy week!  we had VBS each morning from 9am - 12noon at church - and i was a leader with a group of 6 5th graders.  aidan was my assistant leader and we had a blast each day!  ryan and cole got to enjoy VBS also in their classes and they woke up excited each morning to get ready and go!








 





on thursday our children's ministry director talked on stage to all the kiddos and explained to them how much JESUS loves them and how important it is to ask HIM into their hearts. she prayed a special prayer with everyone and asked for those who took that prayer seriously and had asked JESUS into their hearts for the first time to let their leaders know so we could write down their name and phone numbers to turn in for follow up calls. after she was done speaking - one of my kiddos came to me and told me that he had prayed that prayer and truly believed that JESUS was his savior. oh. my. i got so emotional and my eyes just welled up with tears. i couldn't have been smiling any bigger!!! i am so happy for him and i hope he knows what an important decision he has made!


we also had lots 'o fun at the ymca this week!  we went just about everyday after cole's nap.  i would go workout while aidan played basketball and the little boys went to their class and played.  then - we would all go swimming after.  the boys love swimming and really had such a fun time!  ryan is the most timid in the water - but each day he got a little braver ;)  now he's pretty much a fish like his brothers!







we have been practicing writing letters with ryan and this week he wrote his name by himself for the first time!  he was so proud of himself and i must say - i was very proud also!  he's getting so big and learning so well.  only a 2+ months till kindergarten...eeek...



i am loving summer so far and it's just getting started!  i love being able to be home and spend this time with my boys - even if they might have driven me crazy one or two times this week ;)

sock bun was a total fail.. but in all fairness I didn't start out with nice hair (it was crappy and frizzy).. so I will try it again with clean brushed hair ;) however, last night I tried the headband one.. you put the headband on like a hippie then wrap all your hair around it.. I thought it was going to be hard.. but it was beyond easy!! took one minute.. and that gave me great curls.. except my bangs were beyond freaky! LOL had to iron them flat.. but after trying both I'm 99.99% sure that there techniques are meant for ppl with straight hair.. I have wavy hair so I really don't need the curls.. I just want to wake up without frizz!!! ok, lemme go catch up on your posts ;)
