Guys, if I am just being truthful, I am EXHAUSTED! We have made the paper to electronic conversion in the last week. I feel like I am working about 60 hours a week. I started the art classes for the kiddos twice a week. Ellie AND Gabbi both started dancing AND gymnastics each at different times, last week.
I am planning for a MOST awesome upcoming art retreat, which requires much study and dedication to get the personal growth stuff down pat. The art stuff is the easy part! And it's gonna be awesome if I do say so myself.
And.... well.... I am whipped! Todd's mom and dad and bro and sis in law are coming in town tomorrow, so we'll be entertaining through the weekend. We haven't seen them in months!
I'm WORN OUT! Have you been there?! So, I am just going to have to tell you the story here and let the pictures speak for themselves. This is Grayson and Reed and super blond headed, Cole. They all live next door and across the street.
And Ellie LOVES having boys all around. Un. Cool!
She claims she is "dating" Grayson who is in the blue shirt, and I am pretty sure it's because he is 7. For the record, I do NOT talk about "dating" anyone to her. I am not sure WHERE she gets it. Emma Lou and the big girls next door , maybe?!
So they're chilling... in dad's room... gonna get beat if he finds out they're jacking with his clubs.
and miss Big Shot decides it is time to head to the art room.
I think ALL kids secretly LOVE art!! And so the creating began. Look at Ellie. was she in her element or what?!
She eventually stood up on that table and gave some mighty instructions!
Check out her drawing. I'll admit, I am pretty impressed with the control she has for her age. She adds swirls to everything. Wonder where she gets that from! Ha.
By the time they left, they were even adding stitches to their pseudo-canvases using her Hello Kitty sewing machine!
For Ellie, this was a dream day. All these boys, commanding attention, and making crafts. Yeah... we are living the life! ha
