We had a wonderful Easter! A bit of craziness trying to get everyone ready and out the door but very worth it. Our pastor shared some footage from a person that really doubted the existence of God and so he set out to prove the story of Christ wrong. Along his journey, however, his eyes were opened and he realized just how real Christ is! We ate a wonderful dinner at my parents' house and then had a great egg hunt. It was so fun to see it through the eyes of the littlest ones that don't remember hunting last year.
Jonathan is really starting to blossom as he continues to go to preschool 4 days a week. I was a bit hesitant at first but he has done such a great job and I'm so appreciative of his teacher, Miss Brandi and his speech therapist, Miss Jennifer. He also has 2 paras that help him while he is there (and have helped us so much with pottytraining!). Here are a few pictures that he has made at preschool.
Here are some pictures that Joel created. He specializes in drawing people and is gradually adding more and more detail as he gets older. He also has a bug book that he will color in for long periods of time, trying to get just the right color of grasshopper is a tough job.
Natalie loves all things penguins. She recently painted this picture of a family of penguins. Her aunt Heather got her a stuffed penguin which she still plays and sleeps with. She loves to read books from the library about penguins and in fact, she wrote a report about them this year for school.
Allie has loved drawing for as long as I can remember. She will sit down and draw for hours. I still have books that I learned from when I was about her age and it is so fun to see her using those same books to indulge her creativity. Here is a painting that she recently created. I wish that you could actually see it in person because she even used some different textures in the grass and on the flowers to make them seem more life-like. I look forward to what she creates in the future.
