VBS, Birthday Parties, & Haircuts

 Before bed one night Sissy grabbed my Bible and started "reading."  She has been doing this more and more and it does my heart good to see. 
 Little G with his pj's on and wanting to give Marley a walk.  I'm thankful that I have had the chance to get up early and walk every morning.  Sometimes it's just me and Marley but most times it's also Little G.  He gets up much earlier than the rest of the family and we will grab him his breakfast to-go and will put him in the stroller and get Marley on his leash and head out the door.  It's been a great start to my day and Little G and Marley seem to love that time too.
 Not too long ago I took all three kids to get their hair done by a friend of mine. 
 Bubby was ready to get his hair cut short and when he was done he loved the way his head felt.  He did a great job sitting still.
 Sissy was next.  She really didn't need her hair done but ever since I got my hair done a few weeks ago she has been talking about getting her hair cut.  We decided to get it just trimmed.  When my friend was done trimming Sissy's hair she asked if Sissy like it......Sissy said no.  She wanted it to look different than what she had so we asked if she wanted it curled and that seemed to make her happy.
While the curling iron heated up we had Little G get his hair cut.  You will notice that there are no pictures of Little G getting his hair done.  It was all hands on deck to get him to sit still and stay happy.  That boy has flipped a switch to turbo-speed lately and has me constantly running.  The haircut turned out adorable despite his constant moving.  My friend only needed one band-aide by the time it was over.
 The curling iron was hot and Sissy was ready.
 She loved every minute of it and when she was done she gave everyone this look that she was better than us.  It was funny at this age but definitely won't be as she gets older. 
 Look at that handsome fella with his new haircut.
 After their spiffy new hair styles we then headed to our third VBS of the year.  Bubby G and Sissy G were old enough to go to Little Grove Christian Church's VBS where my brother preaches.
 They got to wear some neat VBS shirts.
 Look at those adorable curls.

 Bubby's class.
 Someone shared these pictures with me....we obviously didn't know we were getting our picture taken.  We kind of look mad.  Eek. 
 Little G wanted in on all the action.  He seems to be growing up really fast.
 Hanging with his cousin.
 Sissy with her class.
 Pretty girl.
 Ice cream sandwiches.  I was told they ended up having to give Sissy a spoon because she was scooping the ice cream out of the middle with her finger.  Apparently she doesn't like the cookie part.
 Any time Little G hears or sees an airplane he instantly points up and says "Look, air-pane." 
 This was the first time I've ever seen him say "Cheese" when I took his picture.  Have I mentioned he is growing up way too fast?
 The older two wanted in the picture too.  This doesn't happen very often so I was glad they wanted to join in.

 Walking out of VBS the next night and Bubby insisted that he take care of Little G.  He said, "Don't worry, Mom, I can get Little G for you." 
 I was walking along thinking I wish I had my phone to snap a picture of them holding hands out to the van but luckily my brother had the same idea and got some cute pictures of them.  And, yes, that's me in the background with the baby belly.

 The whole VBS on the last night.  Sissy and Bubby are in the front row and you can actually see Mr. G in the back doing his own lil photo bomb.
 Sissy's class again.
 Bubby's class.
 I see water guns and a Frisbee in the air so I'm not sure what game they were playing but it looks like fun.
 Sissy getting her teachers.
 Bubby playing soccer with his class.  Yes....the field was in a grave yard.
 Last Saturday we had a birthday party for one of Sissy's friends.  It was a princess party and then the birthday girl had an older brother who had pirate stuff for the older boys to play with while the little girls did princess stuff.  And it only makes sense for Sissy to want to be half princess and half pirate. 
 Little G loved his little eye-patch.
 All the princesses.
 Dinner time.  Little G even got in on the princess food. 
 The boys outside digging for their buried treasure.
 In their pirate ship.
 I was 24 weeks last Wednesday.  Baby G is becoming more and more active.  Last week I also saw my new doctor in town for the first time and I really liked her.  We had a little ultrasound done and the baby is looking great.  Head down right now and is growing like she should.  Praise God.
 Last Sunday we had another birthday party down in Marion for the kids' second cousin.  This lil boy's dad is a police man so the kids were excited to get a look in his squad car.  Bubby got to push the sirens and turn on the lights and talk into the walkee-talkee's. 
 Sissy even got to do the siren's.
But she was also a little shy about being in the police car. 
I'm currently in the process of figuring out all my homeschool curriculum.  It is just about a month away from school time.  I'm really excited about homeschooling but it has been overwhelming figuring out what curriculum I want to spend money on and incorporate in my children's education.  I hope to be blogging and showing all about what our days entail.  There will be a lot of trial and error but my goal right now is to show Bubby how much fun learning can be and to be an encouragement to him while he learns.  He's a pretty smart kid and is eager to learn so I have high hopes.  The hard part will most likely be finding a routine that works for us, organization, and finding things for all three kids to do during this time.  The best part of all is knowing that I'm doing exactly what God is calling me to do.  I'm not against public school or private school but I know with out a doubt that this is our calling for right now.  I have that peace that comes from being in God's will.  Until next time....
