"Na na Na na, Na na Na Na, Hey hey hey, Goodbye"
Now replace a few of the words:
"Na na Na na, Na na Na na, Hey Jesus, Fill My Heart".
Now imagine driving home after a long day at work and three toddlers are yelling this Christian rendition at the top of their lungs over and over and over.... and over. Yep, that was my ride home today. My heart was filled to the brim!

We have VBS this week, Sun - Thurs evenings from 5:00pm - 8:15pm. This means we go straight from work/school out to church and don't arrive home until at least 8:30pm. They serve a meal at 5pm so the good news is I don't have to worry about supper at all this week! We made VBS a family affair this year. All 3 kids are in a class and Wes & I are in charge of games. We've participated in some pretty mean games of kickball.
Swim lessons wrapped up last week. We had good days and bad days. The rain last week made consistency a bit difficult, but in the end I thought the kids made good progress. Avery actually did some swimming strokes and showed no fear. Austin was still a bit hesitant about being let go on his own, but he was did a good job of putting his face in the water and floating.
Avery started gymnastics last week. She loved it but was pretty exhausted when it was done. I'll do a full report on that at a later date.
Otherwise, we are rockin' and rollin'. Everyday is a new adventure.

Then there is the change in room arrangements. Austin & Avery have pretty much slept every night of their lives in the same room, in the beginning the same bed. I remember the early days when we would swaddle them and lay them side by side, making sure they were touching so that they would feel secure. Well as of last night, they are no longer in the same room. We moved Caleb into Austin's room and Avery now has her own girl room. I am pretty pumped because now I can decorate a girl room and a boy room seperately. It was tough when there was one of each in the room. Wes and I have been talking about making this change and we weren't going to do it until August when A&A turned 4, but it just kind of happened. Much to our surprise, Avery didn't have a problem sleeping by herself in her new room. Caleb was the one that showed the most resistance. The rooms still have a ways to go. We hope to paint and rearrange a few things, but that will all come with time. One thing at a time.

This was the beautiful view we had out the back door after the rain. This photo does not do it justice. It was the brightest rainbow I have ever seen!
And these are our puddle jumpers.... perfectly mismatched. They cannot stay dressed in the same outfit all day long and rummage through their drawers and closets for the oddest combinations. Drives me crazy, but not a battle worth picking.
