A couple months ago, my friend Mandy and I took the kids (sans Paige) to Drake's Beach for the day. My family has been going to the beach for years. Almost always on Mother's Day and whenever else we can. It holds a special place in my heart and memories. It was such a great day. I didn't have my camera, but I did have the video camera and captured this great video. Selah just makes me smile and laugh. Mandy brought her Canon Rebel so whenever I am able to snag those pics (they are GREAT!) I will. Or, you could go find them on her blog at www.teamheilner.blogspot.com. Look in her July archives. Anyway, what a wonderful day at the beach, followed up by the tradition visit to Taco Bell at Cordelia Junction. Happy and tired at the end of this storybook day.
I know it is blurry, but it was the best one I could get for some reason. My camera is temperamental when it comes to getting shots of Selah. She moves so much! Anyway, all morning she had been playing with a half an easter egg in her mouth so that it looked like a clown nose. Just had to post it. :)
In Ry's kindergarten class, they have a mailbox that the kids can write mail and it is read to the class at the end of the day. This was the first time Ry chose to write some mail. The only rule is that there must be some writing on it.... I was pretty impressed (as usual) that he wanted to do this...although, his favorite part was putting the stickers on. :)
