The Big Day (again, thanks Greg)
WOW! Looks like we need a tanning bed or something.After looking back at those pictures, I can tell that we had no idea what we were getting into. We were the greatest parents then (isn't everyone who doesn't have any children???) I think we have learned a lot and the best part is that I would rather spend time with Jason than anyone.

Sitting on the throne at the new lego exhibit
Benjamin dresses up as a dinosaur in the dinosaur exhibit
Noah & Samuel take a drive in the cab at Comic Strip dress up
Isaac thought we forgot about him until we let him out of the stroller to play in the water in the preschool Playscapes area. He squealed and splashed. I loved it!
1. Pay attention in Driver's Education on how to parallel park
2. Peeing outside before coming in a busy building might be a better option than waiting in line 20 minutes.
3. Do not correct your daughter for pulling around your 3 year old by the collar in fear she might lose him. It might eliminate the need for a museum worker to return him to you later.
4. Preschoolers and Grade-schoolers enjoy exhibits differently.
5. Know when the museum closes so you don't have to sprint the last floor in 25 minutes.
6. Remember your wallet.
7. Sand & Water don't mix inside or outside of the mouth of a toddler.
8. Do not plan to make dinner at home later because you will never get home in time to eat it. It's not worth the preparation time before leaving while the remainder of your home is being remodeled by little people.
9. No matter how Verizon Wireless sells it, cell phones were not made for photography and great memories.
10. DO NOT GO BY YOURSELF WITH SIX CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 8 TO A MUSEUM ON PRESIDENT'S DAY JUST BECAUSE IT IS FREE!!!
When I get there, Jason told me that Isaac had thrown up while I was gone. Can you believe it??? Trying to finish up quick, Samuel messes out of the diaper again. We clean up the table and run to the car. Samuel sits on my coat in the car and we make it home for baths and bed. The Lord was gracious to us to allow us to be able to laugh at our evening. Could it be any crazier? Life in our house with 6 children is never the same!

This past week, Jason and Lynnea went to school for an annual Daddy/Daughter Activity Night. Lynnea looked forward to it all week. She planned to wear her favorite purple hoodie....a little like Cinderella getting ready for her ball (except with a hoodie and jeans). I took these pictures before they left.
I pray that we never forget the daily impact we have on our little girls. They are beautiful, delicate and full of God's creativity. Lynnea is absorbing new things everyday and I want God's truths to become part of who she is. Thank you Jesus for our little blessing... however silly that might be.

A HUGE thank you to the Majercik family who sent our family to see the Pacers on Friday night. Every year, they have been so kind to give us tickets to their box seats.
I am not sure whether the kids enjoy watching the game more or visiting the dessert cart. This year we took the entire family.
Noah and Samuel were rather reluctant to go down the steps in fear that that they would fall over the glass. This was forgotten when they got their own can of lemonade.
This year we bought boom-boom sticks and the kids thought that was awesome. Unfortunately, the boys didn't know they were for cheering...swordfighting was more appropriate. Sorry to all those in the box with us.
Jason "thought" he was getting his picture taken with Larry Bird????
