Happenings

It is hard to believe it has been a week since I have been here.  We have just been busy with everyday life.  Between school, grocery shopping, laundry, story time, soccer practice, bible study, 2 no nappers...  the weeks just fly by!  There is just not nearly enough time to get everything done that we want to do!  

One thing that the all three Lee kids cannot get enough of is sidewalk chalk!  
It has been awhile since we  made our last round of sidewalk chalk so I thought we would give it another try.  This time we tried to make bigger chalk using toilet paper rolls for a mold.  The last chalk was too small, they blew through it in about 5 minutes.  
The kids loved their new chalk!  And it is going to last us awhile.
One suggestion...If you decide to make the sidewalk chalk using toilet paper rolls, the key is to let the rolls dry all the way.  I am talking about a couple of days, you have to be patient.  My advice is to just put it away for a few days so you will not be tempted to check and see if it is dry.  If you peel it off too early, this will happen...
I still did not wait until it was all the way dry, but you can see the difference in the two.

My dad came in town this weekend.  We had a great weekend with Granddaddy!  Sara Wells found a new person to cling to instead of Mommy!  She was never far from Granddaddy.
And neither was Miller...
nor Ella.
Saturday we all headed out to Ella's soccer game.
It is hard to believe that Ella only has one more game!  The season has flown by.
Murray has his first season of being a soccer coach almost under his belt.
And Sara Wells is now an expert at keeping me busy at the games!
Here is my attempt at trying to get a picture of Granddaddy with all of the grandkids.  Not too successful.

As you might have noticed in these pictures, Sara Wells has found her new favorite hairstyle.  I have already made my confession that I think it just does not get any cuter than these sweet little pigtails.  Now Sara Wells agrees.
Literally the first thing she says when I get her out of bed in the morning is "tails, tails, tails."  And if I cannot put them in that instant, there is major crying until I can get those pigtails up.  My, this one has got an opinion!
But how can you resist such a cute one!!!
