Family Adventures

Outside our new tent from Grammie. All five of us slept together in it a couple of nights ago. You can't see the whole thing in this picture, but it has a really nice little screened in area and two rooms inside. And, you can stand up in the whole thing, there is a ceiling light and the door is on a hinge. Not your grandma's tent folks!
New haircuts. It took 2 hours to do all 4 (Eric included). Mommy the barber didn't get paid but everyone is much cooler for summer. It was painful (for mommy, love their curly locks) but everyone looks better.

Elijah was setting up dinosaurs in our room while I got ready Tuesday morning and I heard him saying, "Look into the future T-rex, what do you see... and you Brontosaurus, what do you see? They're all looking into the future Mommy... see?"

Uh huh... OK.... Yeah, they're looking into the future. Isn't that a pretty abstract thought for a 6 year old? Shouldn't he be making them eat one another up or something?
AND, Eric dearest eating the first garden tomato. Elijah snatched the 2nd and Micah the 3rd. Isaiah and I both passed on our opportunities. I'll take mine in a salad or sandwich.

The hair cuts look great! I bet the boys are happy to be cooler. That tent is something! I might consider camping in something like that. Wish we could see you guys some time. Maybe me and the kids to come down sometime in the close future. . .

Simile Metaphor Collection

Elijah after running: My heart is beating like a coconut rolling down a hill.
Elijah on urination: Pee is like horses galloping out of the gate. Once they get started you just can't stop them.
Elijah: If school were a human I'd give it a wedgie.
Elijah: I am like a hot rod and I just want to be a plain old Ford
Elijah on the fruits of the spirit: I've got them all covered except self-control. Its like a tiny green tomato and the rest are all big ripe ones. Especially love. Its like the biggest tomato we saw in the garden tonight.
