Newel and Grant took a date to go watch a friend race his car around the track. They put Grant in the passenger seat for a ride along. I think it was the best minute of his little life so far.

Christian's arms and legs are longer and longer too.
This woke me up from a much needed nap one day. I think there was some enthusiasm over some pink crystals found in the yard.
Charlotte earned a trip to our new candy shop on Main Street. She was so excited to find pale blue crystal suckers. She called them "Frozen Wands" and insisted we get two ... One for her and one for Eliza. I just loved her enthusiasm to share with a sister.

I still love swinging into the high school parking lot and catching kids after school engrossed in their own little world.
More home schooling with Grant who some days thinks he should just hang in his pj's.
