We’ve got caterpillars! We got Sophia a butterfly pavilion from insect lore for Christmas and our caterpillars just came in! Sophia collected the mail and ran in the house screaming because she realized the box of caterpillars had arrived. It’s going to be fun to learn all about exoskeletons, chrysalis, and metamorphosis watching these guys change and grow before our eyes!

You know when you think your kids are innocently coloring together so you go about your business cleaning and getting stuff done? Then you walk in later to see a little body with way to much ink on it and absolutely no clothes!
I’m pretty sure he had assistance from his sister because there were marks on his chubby little bottom too…
Before church on Sunday the kids went outside to be with Paul while he did a little yard work. Minutes later, Paul runs in to get me and says, “grab your camera your picture is waiting for you!” I come outside to snap the picture. This was a pretty pleasant sight to stumble upon. Sophia had taken out a sketch pad and an extra pencil and shared a sheet of paper with her buddy/brother Kal. They were drawing pirates together.
My mom came to visit us this week. It was great! We all had fun with Mimi around. We watched some movies and she tagged along with my busy life. She also watched the kids one night so Paul and I could go on a date-the first one since we moved here-so that was very much appreciated! I took a picture yesterday of the kids at the park with Mimi.
Paul and I celebrated our 8 year anniversary this week. We’ve known each other for almost our whole lives and things just keep getting sweeter. I love the little family we’ve made together! He’s such a great guy, and I’m very glad he’s mine.
Sophia snapped this shot for us before we headed out on a date. It is a cute picture, but her standing on a bench holding my big camera was even cuter! What a great kid!
This year we are determined Sophia become more comfortable riding her bike. She’s kind of apprehensive towards it, so Paul’s trying to make sure she can get a little practice every day when possible. I’m glad he’s so dedicated to helping her and is always right there to catch her before she crashes (which surprisingly still happens with training wheels!).
