All Boy

Adrian asked if he could have a candy cane for snack today.  I forgot where I put them and said yes.  Knowing where they were, Adrian helped himself to one and then got some to share.

I remembered where the candy was “hidden” in time to get a picture and help Adrian down because his hands (and mouth) were full holding the candy.

In Spite of my Fear

I do not like snakes. My children know that I do not like them. However, that fear has not been passed on to my children!

Today, Mark was so excited to find a small garter snake while playing in the backyard. Audrey yelled asking me to get an aquarium ready for their new pet snake. Mark and the girls waited around for the snake to reappear from its hiding place. They then had a fun time trying to catch the snake.

I am so thankful that they have had a wonderful nature teacher who has been able to teach them a healthy respect for snakes. They are not afraid of them, enjoy holding them and have learned to never tease people with the snakes they hold. I have been encouraged to hold snakes and am not quite so fearful of them–but I still dislike them VERY much! Thank you Miss Krista!

Four Years Old

Adrian is four years old!

He requested a dinosaur cake, so I made a brownie and let the kids decorate it with their toy dinosaurs.  It was the best looking cake I have seen in a long time! Adrian thought it was perfect, just what he wanted. It tasted great with the chocolate chip and the raspberry chocolate ice creams he chose.
