I love this so much. Kal wanted a batman cape so Paul tied his old blankie around Kals neck just like he used to when he was a kid. Pretty darn priceless.

So this may seem like a silly little thing to be excited about but I’m pretty darn thrilled to see these plants I planted coming up!! It’s been crazy rainy so they are muddy, but I may actually be capable of gardening. **fingers crossed** I keep checking on these every day since I saw them surface. Thank you Relief Society for helping teach me and boost my confidence! And thanks to my Mother in Law for helping me plant!
I went to the Kansas City LDS temple Thursday evening. It is such a beautiful peaceful place. I’m so thankful we live very close to it. If you are curious, here is more information about LDS temples. I took a few pictures around the grounds before I left. Even played around a bit with free-lensing, (the flower pic) although I am by far no expert.
This is Kal. Completely and utterly deflated because Samus won’t let him ride her.
…or maybe it is frustration that his mom cut his bangs like a two year old…I’ll be taking him to a professional tomorrow (hopefully). I know! I shouldn’t have cut it, but it was in his eyes. I had a moment of insanity where I thought I could do it!
Tuesday we had a delightful field trip to the Arboretum! I wish it wasn’t all the way in Overland Park because it is also one of my favorite new places! We will have to go back frequently. The kids discovered some pretty impressive fairy houses in the woods. That was certainly a highlight.
We went on a little nature hike tonight at Martha Lafite Thompson Nature Sanctuary and Sophia really enjoyed herself. We brought cards I had made and put on a ring of Missouri birds. We saw a Cardinal, a Great Blue Heron, and a Red-Tailed Hawk. We also read a few signs along the path about the trees and I’d like to make some reference cards for those as well. I think we’ll be doing this a lot more! It was a great evening
I was in Illinois from Friday through Sunday and Paul was totally fine with the kids and without me. Goes without saying but he’s a pretty awesome dad. On top of being Mr. Mom for the weekend he also surprised me by painting our entire bathroom! (Don’t worry, he didn’t pick the color without consulting me, I had purchased the paint about a month ago when Sherwin-Williams had a 40% off sale. I bought colors for several areas of our house and this was the last room of those spaces left to paint. It is Sherwin-Williams Serious Grey.) The previous color was the same as all of the walls in our new house, it was a very cheap matte grey that kind-of matched the tile. The previous paint didn’t hold up to water, so this was becoming a problem in our bathroom as the kids have splashed frequently in our tub. How refreshing to see this new color! It had to be one of the worst rooms to paint though because of all the cutting-in. This was a really awesome surprise!
