Ugh oh.  Causing trouble and smirking.

One Friday I boiled all by myself—well Nora helped too.

Bob came over to visit in the evening.

All of Joseph’s sports sway: hockey, wrestling, and arm wrestling.  Most of them are distributed to all participants no matter how they do.  The biggest trophy though is arm wrestling in which he did win first.

At the playground

Camping out!  (The tent was a surprise part of a back pack we checked out of the library.  Joseph was soo into it!)

074

Reading in the tent.  He made it until about 11 each night he tried to sleep in the tent.  I was pretty impressed that he was even able to fall asleep out there by himself (he’s a little timid about the dark generally).

Messy eater

Upside down sportsmanship award.  He was always perfectly even-keeled about his matches, whether he won or lost he was right there ready to try again.  I was very proud of this-since we don’t always see behavior like that at home

Joseph LOVES his reading mentor.  On her last day he gave her this note, plus two rubber band bracelets he made, a $1 bill, and a $5 gift card to Kinney’s he had.  I tried to convince him this was a bit much, but he really, really wanted to so I let him.  How sweet.

Cleaning his rock collection.

Only picture I have from Jay Peak for Tanner’s birthday.  TONS of fun.  Crazy busy.  Way to far away.

Her favorite toy for a long time.  She and Joseph both got a lot of use out of this!

OH.MY.WORD. she is so stinkin' cute! And I'm impressed Joseph even attempted sleeping out by himself. There's no way I would have tried that at his age!

Ok I know I have been a slacker, but now I need to say I have been LOVING your pics and am just blown away by Nora... she makes me think of Sophia! She just radiates cuteness and sweetness. She is beautiful. I love the pic of Joseph reading to her! I see a lot of sibling sweetness! And VEGETARIAN = YAAAAYYYY!!!! :) Would you like to adopt me?! That all looks so yummy!!!
