I can't believe it is September already! The weather even turned cooler here the past couple of days and it feels like Fall. Personally, I love it! We had a good week, here is a peak.
Today we had our annual outdoor celebration at church. Instead of 3 services indoors, we all combine outside for one large celebration. I was on to sing this week. This is what it looked like after we left the stage.
After the celebration, lunch is served and then lots of fun and games. It was a super hot day, but fun.
The girls have been making craft projects lately. Today they worked with clay and this is what they made.
Super cute and fun!
Also took in this sight this evening (5:30ish).
I just love seeing the sun beams break through like that. It always makes me think of God breaking through every situation.
Piano resumed again and we have a new student here.
Ethan began lessons too! He is so excited!! Both boys are taking from our beloved Miss Michelle. Hooray music!!
I saw this today and couldn't believe my eyes!
This tree is at the corner of our street. It has totally changed colors to this brilliant yellow. I guess it knew September started today and was getting ready for Fall!
Today was a milestone for Ella. Well, maybe not a milestone. Did you ever play hand clapping games with friends when you were a kid? You know like, See See My Playmate or Down Down Baby? Or perhaps the McDonald's Big Mac song? Well I taught Ella See See My Playmate. (With Kevin's help...yes, he can do them all too!)
It was so fun teaching her this and doing it with her. Maybe now we'll move on to a more "advanced" one!
Kyla and I had lunch with our special friend Kris and her little guy, "A" today. On the way to lunch Kyla was telling me what the clouds looked like. Guess what she said this one was. (the top one)
She said, "It's a chicken with a bone in it." She meant a drumstick. I was cracking up!
At lunch Kyla took this picture of "A".
He is a lot of fun!!
Today is Ella's birthday!! I can't believe she is 6 already. She opened presents this morning...
...and then we had cake at dinner.
For those of you doing Project 365, I thought you might enjoy this picture. WARNING: This is immediately after Ella was born, so she isn't super clean...no blood though!
That is our Project 365 hostess, Sara holding Ella when she was born. Sara was with us for the delivery and even cut the cord.
Happy birthday my sweet Ella! You are full of life and spunk, with a giggle that is absolutely contagious. I am so blessed to be your mama!
Hope you have had a super week and that your September is starting off with joy!!
