Weeks 9 & 10...where has the time gone?

These past two weeks have flown by! We are currently in the van on our way to Nashville for a wedding so I finally have a moment to sit down and update the blog. In addition to the normal craziness of our wonderful life I've been moving through the "Bible in 90 days" plan, which means quite a bit of reading time for me. If I stay on track I should finish on Christmas Eve. It's that neat timing? I love how God works out those little details. :) 

Jeremiah has been growing by leaps and bounds. The day before he turned 5 months he figured out this...

It didn't take long before he started doing an inchworm action to scoot along. Once he learns how to pick up one of his hands it's all over! He'll be a full fledged crawler before we know it. 

School is carrying on as usual. The kids are memorizing the old poem "Paul Revere's Ride". They love to memorize things! 

Jeremiah celebrated 5 months of life...he's cuter than ever!

Silas was taking photos of the family one day. He got some great shots :) 

We had the Houston's over for a family night last Saturday. We love these kids like they're ours. 

The next day we celebrated cousin Laya's birthday at her "art party". The kids each got to paint their own mini birdhouse. 

We've been changing things up during math time by playing games. "Time Bingo" is a really fun one! Definitely worth the dollar it cost me at Target last year  ;) 

It's that time of year fill up our Operation Christmas Child shoeboxes. (Has it really been a year already?!) We were so blessed this year by an unexpected gift from someone at church who gave us money for our shoebox shopping trip. 

Silly kids...

The boys have been really enjoying their Trail Life troop. Jason is their leader so it makes it extra special :) 

One of the older boys taught them a new game last Tuesday: 

While the boys were at their meeting and Bella was at her AHG meeting, the younger three kids and I went to fill up the gas tank...and didn't quite make it. Oops. 
Fortunately we have great friends. Jason's fellow Trail Life dad came to our rescue. 

So here we are, four hours into the trip and so far we're having fun! :-)
