Random things that have happened lately:One of my best friends from my D.C. days came for a visit (the one in the middle). She just ran the Boston Marathon...FAST. She is quite a woman. The girl on the right is our other friend who also lived in D.C. (Virginia really) who now lives in the next neighborhood from me. And her parents were my mission presidents. Small world.My brother and his family came to visit. We went on a hike I already wrote about but couldn't resist posting a couple pictures of the kids. I love that their three kids are the same ages as my last three. And that they get along SO great.We had brunch with neighbors over conference weekend...love these guys.
Lucy had her first braids. I know, kinda scruffy looking but I was sure proud of them.
Grace lost her teeth which I already posted about but I thought this picture was funny with those big holes in her gums. The lisp that the absence of teeth has given her is pretty funny.
Lucy's about as big as Grace.
Max is practically a grown-up. I think it's crazy that a ten-year-old can fit so perfectly on his mom's bike. He loves it.
Do you think they like this slide?
I've started giving Max and Elle photography lessons. Boy oh boy they really love it. They are actually pretty quick to pick up on the f-stop and shutter speed stuff. We've had fun doing it together. They experiment with different settings any time I let them get their hands on the camera:
Max took this one...trying to get the person in front in focus and the person in back to be blurred out. And Elle took this one.
Lucy's best friend.
Lucy's other best friend.
I realize I'm short on Elle pictures...I better get working on those.
