{pretty, happy, funny, real}

~Capturing the context of contentment in everyday life~
Every Thursday at Like Mother, Like Daughter
pretty paintings by the children at Ellie's birthday party

they all painted (or made a collage) on a canvas and painted some little peg people!

Here's Ellie with her drawing of a piano that she made during MC's lesson and gave to her teacher today.  She was so proud!  The girls have their first piano recital next week.

Happy little brother playing around during a baseball game!

Happy kids after another baseball game and a belated birthday dinner for Ellie at On The Border!  Finally we found some good fajitas in town!

A day in the life of the B family homeschool where Ellie attempts to read One Fish, Two Fish, Red Fish, Blue Fish while wearing the scuba gear she got for her birthday, and her brothers try to pester her. 

 Dr. Seuss kind of works with scuba gear though, right?

At least we're teaching our kids to multi-task!

A real moment of calm and peace with the boys using the do-a-dot paints, workbooks, and coloring for about 10 minutes.  This rarely happens.  Hoping for more of these in the coming months!

I love your real :) Those content moments are so wonderful (when the come.) And Dr Seuss totally does work with scuba gear.
