Sara and Silas are the best of friends and the worst of enemies. Lately, my house is full of screaming "Mines" and "Mommy, Silas took that from me!" However, they recently found an activity that they can do together and not fight about-well, usually. . . Thanks Mr. and Mrs. Potato head for helping me keep my sanity.
I am working on compiling cute bath pictures of Sara and Silas and my sister's triplets. She has already sent me so adorable pictures of Bella, Bastian and Sophie, so now I have to get my kiddos to cooperate. My goal is to change them all to black and white and hang them in my bathroom. We will see how they all turn out.

Well, it has taken me nearly three weeks to finally get these pictures posted. We had a great week at family camp! The kids had a blast, and did really well. They were exhausted by the end of the week. We took a ton of pictures and video, but we spared you all the boring and embarassing details. You will find NO pictures of Matt and I scaling the thirty-foot climbing wall, riding the zip-line, or Matt winning the corn-on-the-cob eating contest. . . but it all happened and we captured it all on film. We see no need to exploit ourselves in that way, although we had a lot fun doing those things. We would love to go back again next year-Enjoy the pictures.
This inflatable slide was probably Sara's favorite thing to do at camp. She would have gone down all three hours it was up if I would have let her. It was way too hot for that! She kind of lost her balance when she went this time, but later she asked me if I had seen her "trick". Good cover-up Sara!
Wednesday night at camp the parents had a meal to themselves. The camp staff took the younger children and gave them dinner while we enjoyed an italian dinner and string music in the dining hall. (It was nice not having to cut up anyone's food into little pieces before we ate)
The Friday of family camp all the children's groups, starting with the 2's-3's, put on a little program. Sara's group, the happy hoppers, said a verse and sang, "My God is So Big". This is the first time Sara has ever had to get up in front of a large crowd and I wasn't sure how she would do. I wondered if she would be shy and not sing or a total ham and do great. . . well, the pictures speak for themselves! (You all have to see the video)
