One more post before bedtime... Earlier today, Joshua was practicing his Superman routine of leaping into the chair and then flipping over onto the floor. The first time he did this, I happened to have the video camera on, though I didn't catch all of it on video. We got several other attempts on video, but the first was the best, mostly because Joshua was going so fast and his landing took him by surprise! This video is also on the video bar below.

The Aquarium

One of our favorite places to go is to the Aquarium! This past week we went with some friends and had a great time. I asked Joshua what his favorite part was this time and he said that the anacondas and the bullfrogs were the best! Since then, every blanket in the house has become a "snake". They all have names and he even curls them up to "tuck" them in for bed. Our future should be interesting. :) Neil has kept many critters since we have been married. And even though I've handled snakes before, I've always asked Neil to not bring any home. I have a feeling that as Joshua gets older I'll have to rethink that rule! We'll see! I would rather know about a snake in my house than not know and be surprised! :)

Note: There's a video from the aquarium on the video bar!

Yesterday the boys were able to dress up in their costumes for storytime! They had a great time and Ms. Becky, the librarian, even had cookies and special treats for all of the kids! Before storytime began, Joshua went hunting for books about Frogs. By the time we found some, he had already picked out several books. Needless to say, the book bag was VERY full yesterday!

What did God make?

Tonight as I was getting Joshua ready for bed, he asked me if God created the trees, frogs, children, our family, and the list goes on... This went on for several minutes. Then he asked me HOW God created the trees. I told him that I didn't know how, but I knew that He just did. Then I told him that one day, he could ask God that same question. Joshua answered, "I think God made the trees, one by one"! What a wonderful answer from such a sweet boy. It is refreshing to hear him talk about God and ask questions like this!

Hot Chocolate!

Ever since our last visit to Mimi and Grandpa's house, Joshua has been very interested in Hot Chocolate. So, last week on a chilly afternoon, we made our own! Joshua helped and then really enjoyed "sipping" it until it was gone! We did put an ice cube in it to cool it off. He loved every minute of it and it was a fun afternoon in the kitchen with him!

Micah is walking!

The big news on the home front is that Micah is walking and actually has been for about two weeks now. He's really starting to take off now and is doing much better with balance. He's had some pretty funny moments trying to maintain his balance. I've gotten a couple of videos uploaded! You can see them at the bottom of the page! I haven't figured out if I can embed a single video to an actual post, or if it has to go on the "video bar". Any help or suggestions would be appreciated!

A fresh start!

I've blogged before, but it's been awhile. So much has happened since that time...two kids, several moves cross county...more than can be mentioned in an opening post! As with most things these days, it always seems to take a long time to get anything done. I've wanted to start up a blog again for a couple of months. Well, today is the day!
