Summer Activities

Life is interesting.  I feel like I have been busy lately, but it is doing the routine stuff.  The boys and I do at least one little activity everyday to keep things fun.  They really look forward to what I have planned even when it is small stuff.  I am posting pictures of what we have done.
We read the Rainbow Fish and made these fish crafts.
We did an umbrella craft.
This activity was probably the  most fun for them this passed week.  They painted on bread with food coloring and milk and we made dinosaur shapes.
Porter, especially got into this activity.
We found instructions on how to draw this little guy from Cut the Rope.

Today Tanner and Vance made up little books.

 As I think on the passed week it has been an interesting one.  I have felt disappointment, sadness, discouragement, gratitude, joy, happiness and probably everything in between.  I am trying to hold my head up high and shoulder all the things that come our way with faith in our Heavenly Father.  Sometimes I feel lost, but I do know that Heavenly Father is there guiding us and blessing us.  I know we I have much to be grateful for.  One of Stephen's former co-workers and friends died in a plane crash over the weekend.  It is a reminder to me that life is fragile and we never know how long a loved one will be with us.  I know I personally, need to stop and truly appreciate the wonderful people in my life and not take them for granted.  As I go through these Earthly trials I want to be able to look back and be happy with how I dealt with them so I know I need to do better.

Tanner's Om Nom looks just like the game. He's pretty good.

One of the specialists Chloe saw last year had her paint on bread. I thought it was kinda gross, lol. But the kids loved it.

So do they eat the bread after they paint on it? It does look kind of gross.

They did eat it. I used clean, new brushes. I thought it looked gross too, but they didn't seem to mind.
