Our very special Peanut turned 1 this week. Above is 1 of about 150 shots that I took of her eating her cupcake. I only kept 84 of the good ones from the shoot :). I will post more, along with some shots of her Pink Puppy Party soon... a 1st birthday deserves it's own post!

Pal also turned 6 since my last QTs. Poor middle child, I only took 4 pictures of his birthday. He did have a pretty sweet day however. Kevin took him to a maker faire, where they spent the day looking at and creating cool things. You can see the car he made at the faire to his left. (And the kid asked for store bought cheesecake for his cake... I happily delivered on that one.)

The birthday buddies had a special moment today when Pal brought Peanut in for his show and tell. After giving his classmates three clues about what he bought the kids determined that it was a robot, mouse, or kangaroo. A 4th clue of "it wears diapers" was needed for them to figure out that "it" was a baby. Peanut put on a good show by barking at the parent helper and toddling around the circle of kids. I took some pictures, but they include other people's kids and I have always felt weird about posting other people's kids on my blog.

Speaking of posting pictures of other's kids, here are a bunch of em. I guess I feel like this is different because the kids aren't really identifiable. IDK, correct me if I am wrong.
In this picture you see the grand finally of a six week long sports camp that my kids participated in with other homeschool families. It's the shoe toss that finished off our field day... so classic. Each week the kids participated in a different sport and the parents took turns coaching. I love it when homeschoolers unite. If you homeschool, you should set up one of these for your community. Let me know if you need any tips.

Bean is thrilled to announce that she will be a toy solider and an arabian page in this year's performance of The Nutcracker. It's all things buns and marching with pointed feet around here lately as she practices throughout the house.

Audrey Assad came to town last week, can't you tell it's her? Wait, you can't, sorry, I didn't want to be creepy.
She sounds the exact same when she is live vs. a recording. It's incredible, she's incredible. And I so appreciate how she doesn't write music to get on K-Love (not that it's evil to do so), rather she writes for worship. Her music is truly inspiring, powerful, and good. I felt so blessed to get to see her again as this is her last tour now that she has a new little baby. She'll keep creating new music, so don't worry!

I'm headed to a retreat this weeken. Would you say a quick prayer for me? I hear it's super intense, so of course I'm trying to decide if I'm excited or not.
Linking up at Conversion Diary!
