Lots to catch up on

The kids and I recently got library cards to the Altamonte Springs Library. We've had county library passes for the past couple of years, but getting a city library card opens up a whole new collection of books to check out (and DVDs, too!).

Joshua read us the sign about how the building site was formerly home to a hotel.

The kids had a great time picking out books in the kids section of the library.
On Wednesdays (which is early day from school), the library has crafts. So fun!

Last week, we met up with Shandra and her family for dinner at an awesome little hole in the wall Mexican place with a buffet! It was awesome to try something new and have fun with great friends. Megan and Bradley were in the same classroom last year and were so thrilled to see each other!

We've been challenging each other with Battleship, and it's so funny to see how intense Daniel is when he's playing. I think his ear protectors are on because I was making smoothies and he doesn't like the blender.

On "Fat Tuesday" we were at the mall going to Barnes and Noble and we found a clown in the food court. So we just had to get Megan's face painted, and stop for some dinner, and then continue our quest for books. We finally used our Christmas gift certificates from Uncle Paul and Aunt Nessa and bought a bunch of great books. Megan and I are reading Anne of Green Gables together.
Coming back from Adventurers on Wednesday night, the rain encouraged some of the frogs to come out. Joshua when to pick up this frog, and it instead leaped onto Daniel's leg and Daniel freaked out screaming like a girl. Megan was cracking up the whole time. Of course, hyped everyone up so much that bedtime was delayed by about 30 minutes.

Daniel made this awesome sponge-painting of Keith during Adventurers this week. It was such a great lesson - the kids learned about Alphabet and Sponge Painting.

Today at church we had a fire-drill. And then it seemed as though Sabbath School got out a little early and we were home pretty early. We had some sandwiches and then went to go play in the park, since the weather was fabulous today.

We left the first park (the fishy park) and went to Eastmonte Park.

"Hey, Daniel, can you pick up that ball?" Never one to turn down a challenge, the boy tried with all of his might until I thought he was going to strain something.

We had a blast on the playground. We are hoping to get things planned for an upcoming birthday party at the park.
