Here are some great pictures I got last Saturday before our family photo shoot. :) And a couple extras. The weather was SO nice! While Mitch took the oldest 5 kids to a local homeschool soccer meet/coop/pick-up game (whatever you call it--whoever shows up divides into teams and plays), I hung out with Malachi and Tirzah. Before you think that this is easy for me, think again--all my helpers are GONE during that time. So I spent all my time chasing these two down. :) After giving them a much-needed bath, I figured I might as well chase them with the camera in my hands.
Ugh--the box elder bugs!! The kids love to catch them, pull their legs off, squash them, etc. Tirzah is no exception.
Time for a walk!
Our little trees aren't looking so little compared to Chi. Some day they'll be mighty oaks!
We had our own soccer match. :)
Yes! (He called it a score every time he kicked the ball into the fence.)
A rainbow of colors!
Ahhh...the cozy coupe...the best selling car ever.
This one has been with us since our days at Crown College (ahem...11-12 years ago)
Big brothers are so helpful.
He looked up and said, "Mom, look at all those little clouds!" I said, yes, smile and I'll take a picture of you and the clouds together. :)
The next two are from playing outside today. It was a little chillier at a high of 64. A good 10+ degrees cooler* than last Saturday.
He was helping his dad in the garage. Mitch was sanding some kuub blocks.
*Note: There really is no such thing as cold. It's just the absence of heat. And there is soon going to be a great absence of heat. (Sniff, sniff). Again I am SOOOO thankful for the wonderful weather we've had. It's been a glorious autumn!
