Kids & Chicks

Well, here are some cute shots of the kids. (Of course)
And some shots of the cute little chicks,
who are growing bigger and bigger

I told them to get some of the chicks out on the kitchen floor
(tile--can't hurt it--gotta LOVE it!)
Soon, they had the chicks
eating out of their Hands!!

Good Masters, Sweet Ladies! (or, Men in Tights!)

Yes, that's Jared in tights.
His class put on this little play to show what they have
been learning about the Medieval times.
It was very interesting
and informative.
Not to mention, fun to see Jared wearing tights!

The two sides of Libby

Sometimes, she does stuff like this all by herself, and she does a really good job!

Other times? She just wants to sit and do this: suck her thumb.

I can't decide whether to send her to kindergarten this year or not. :)

Jared's never-ending imagination

For some strange reason, I let Jared make his own version of a spider web on the stairs. And the second picture is his version of a gun which he made all out of paper towel tubes and tape. It's amazing the things that boy thinks up!

Lip Sync!

Every year, our ward YW sponsor a Lip Sync and bake sale for their camp fundraiser. It's always a fun evening. This year, the lip syncs were all done to Disney songs. Nicole's group (the Laurels) did a princess song and Jacob's group ( the Teachers) did "Who's afraid of the big, bad wolf?" Well, from the looks of him, we'd all better be afraid of the big bad wolf! :)
