This is Ethan - one of our neighborhood friends and Emi's potential Prom date in 2025. He wears wife beater t-shirts, converse sneaks with flames on them and offered Emi a 'super slow ride' on his 4x4. Her face pretty much says it all.
We've all been 'pinning' stuff on Pinterest like crazy. Friday afternoons we get together and have 'Pinterest Camps' - science experiments, art and fun all based off stuff we found on Pinterest. Good times.
One of our favorite families, The Sunds, are working hard to adopt a baby girl from China. A couple weeks ago they had a mega yard sale and raised over $1000. Emi helped Ky out with the lemonade/baked goods stand.
Our first VBS camp and first time at St. Gabes where, if we win the lottery, our kids will go to school. Camp let out at noon so we would head to the playground for picnic lunches and fun.
Our dear friends, the Macholz, have an awesome pool in the backyard of their new home. The 3 mamas had 7 kids in that pool and not one drowning. We ordered pizza and for a good 20 minutes (long enough for the mamas to have a glass of wine) all you heard were calls for "more please!" Holy starving children.
These next two pictures are super blurry from my phone but had to document. Emi was eating a snack on Monday after gymnastics camp (animal crackers). Javier, who normally doesn't bother Emi (Andres does enough of that for him) got in her face, snatched the crackers from her and overturned the plate, spilling them on the floor. Normally, E's super-good about not reacting (or 'over-reacting') when the boys bug her but she was in a mood (and tired, and, apparently super hungry) and she kinda lost her mind. She screamed at him and then, *gasp* kicked him in the leg, earning herself a 'time out'. She was screaming and crying the whole time she went to sit and then this...
and then this...
