One thing I've learned about parenting brokenhearted kids is that you can expect to have your heart broken in the process.

Don't ask me what I did. Ask me what I did not do...I did not clip her wings, and that's all.

Friday Phone Dump...

Catching raindrops...

She's so proud of this belt with a pouch...I don't get it.

Some day we just won't wear pants. And mommy is picking her battles, so...

She has her own sense of style, this girl...

When you're scared of actually swinging...

A dinosaur habitat before breakfast. It's how we roll.

She's been Harry Potter for days, now.

He was sick last weekend. Cutest little sick boy.

Weekends are for donuts. That is all.

Crafting Monday...

This week, because it's Summer break, we went to the craft store, and the kids picked out a bunch of craft kits. Naturally, most of them are painting kits, haha.

These are super cute because they come with two printed canvas boards, and plenty of paint pots.

Even though the boards are on the small side, this still kept them occupied for over an hour. Win! And now they are excited to display them in their bedrooms!

Give me your tired, 
your poor, 
Your huddled masses 
yearning to breath free, 
The wretched refuse 
of your teeming shore. 
Send these, the homeless, 
the tempest-tost, to me, 
I lift my lamp beside 
the golden door!
