Workin' Hard

Bubby is three years old and his attention span is much better this year compared to when we started trying preschool at home last year.  I couldn't believe his excitement at getting school books.   
He is getting to cut, glue, trace, and color. 
On this one he cut out each hat and glued it to the correct person.  He did it 100% by himself.  I was very proud of him and he loved every minute.  I could tell he was proud of himself too.  We put this paper on the fridge and he has been showing friends who come over his work.
Circling the picture that is the same.  He did great. 
Tracing the line.
He is a very hard worker and is very particular on making sure he gets it right.  I had no idea he would care so much that he was doing it right but I'm sure its a good thing.  The Bible does say in Colossians 3:23 "Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men."  That's actually the scripture that I wrote on my basketball shoes back in high school.  But Bubby was no doubt doing his school work with all his heart.  It was precious.
Working on drawing his shapes.
This is gonna be lots of fun.

Gym Rats

Headed to the gym. 
Got her basketball clothes and shoes on and she's ready....
To hoop it up.
Big bro is standing back watching his daddy shooting around.
Didn't take long for all three to be out there running around and having a blast.
Bubby for two!!
This boy was in ball heaven.
On the run.
And this lil cutie was content being the....
Floor general.
Love smiles like that.
Sissy stole the ball.
She wanted so badly to shoot the ball....just didn't quite have the strength to make it go very far.
Working on his dribbling skills.
After all that hard work we needed a lil hydration.

Sissy thought the water fountain was funny but wasn't wanting to stick her mouth in it.
I have a feeling on daddy's day off we will be spending lots of time in the gym.  Mr. G and Mrs. G were both gym rats growing up so my guess these two will be gym rats too.

Took the kids to the fountain at the local park.
Sissy just stood there for a while staring at the fountain with a big ole smile on her face.
I think she was thankful that we took her there....especially on as such a hot day as it was.
Testing the water.  Gotta love the lil fountain on top of her head as well. 
Bubby being silly.
Another lil boy came about that time and started playing in the fountain too. 
He was great with the kids and knew only to spray Bubby and not Sissy.
Sissy's favorite part of the fountain was simply running around and around in circles.
And then she would stop and let out a loud scream.
It isn't easy to get either kid to slow down long enough to get a smile.  You should've seen Mr. G and me running around like fools trying to get a picture of these two.  When it was all said and done I think I was almost as wet as the kids.  I'm just a freak about pictures I guess.

What a goofball.
No offense lil boy in the back....but I finally got Bubby to sit and smile for a picture...kinda wish you weren't in the background.
Scratch that....I REALLY wish you weren't in the background.  This would've been such a neat picture.  Oh well.
Love the excitement on her face.  Just know she was probably letting out one of her screams at this point.
Showing me how wet he is.  He was loving the water.
Is getting braver and braver.
So is this one.  She's almost to the top.  And with that kid in there I'm guessing she's gonna end up getting accidentally sprayed.
Uh....not sure what that face was for.
Getting sprayed....
Which resulted in a lil bit of a cry.
All better....back to making her rounds.
And stopping to scream.
Attempt at a sibling picture.... didn't work.
Trying to get Sissy to say "Cheese."
There we go.  I love her "Cheese" face.
Action shot.
Almost to the top.  Getting brave.
This sibling picture worked out well.  Glad you can't see Mr. G standing behind me making all those funny faces.  But whatever works.
LOVE that they LOVE each other!!!!
And LOVE making memories like this.  It was fun day.

I was able to do a lil video so you can see the kids in action.
