Well, I'm finally getting over my huge fear of guns. I still am not a complete pro at it, and I still get a little nervous when I'm about ready to pull the trigger. Now I don't consider them to be in the same category as spiders, snakes, and tight spaces. I pray that I'll never need to actually use one, but I feel better now that I know I could be ready in an emergency.

Ben's New Trick

Benjamin has learned a trick recently that makes everyone laugh. The following pictures show the jist of it. Up, down, left, right, down, repeat. He thinks he's so funny that he cracks himself up.

Jordan's Fauxhawk

Jordan believed that I would be willing to let him have a fauxhawk. Since he needed a serious haircut, I let him keep it for a day. Granted, if we had to leave the house he promised he'd comb it. I told him in order to commemorate the event, I'd post a picture.

Naked Sunday Mornings

As I was getting ready for church one Sunday morning, I decided I'd better check on everyone since Taylor wasn't home. While I headed downstairs, I heard a continual "squeak, squeak, squeak". The noise started getting louder the closer I got to the back door. Much to my surprise, this is what was causing the noise.......

Being the smart little stinkerpants he is, Ben pulled over the stepladder to let himself up. For those of you who are easily offended, I blurred out the embarrassing areas.

School Spelling Bee

Noah sitting in line on the bench waiting for his turn.

Up in front of the principal for one of his words. He looks so relaxed. I think my nerves took more of a beating than his did.

Noah won 1st place for 2nd grade!!!! They even moved on to the "Challenge Words" for 4th grade in order to weed through the kids a little faster. We are so proud of him! Great job Noah!!!!!
