Busy Outside

While I've been busy inside, the children have been busy outside. Bella and Daisy went for a walk in the cold. How I love Bella's outrageous combinations! She dresses herself and her baby sister.




Meanwhile, the boys built a trebuchet in the front yard.


Cinder-block powered, it throws rocks a hundred feet.


And it can throw smoke bombs taped to baseballs!

I found your page via diary of a law school mom, and I'm in love. I have to put my kids to bed so that I can spend hours reading you. I feel at peace on your page...I like that!

Love the vivid color in those first two pictures. :)

And trebuchets.... they're so boy-ish aren't they? My boys own the Backyard Ballistics and The Art of The Catapult books. They've conquered the potato cannon and next on their list.... yep, a trebuchet!

Your girlies are delightful and your boys are awesome!

Have you heard of the new book out there called The Dangerous Book for Boys? We purchased it for a family of 5 boys...not that they need it. ;o)

LOVE the pink cowboy boots. Wish they came in my size. My boys would be thrilled to build such a creation! Hope yours enjoyed it.

So, adding to my list of things that freak me out that aren't really that scary... trebuchets?

Elizabeth said...

I'm impressed with the trebuchet. What a fun and clever thing for your boys to do. And, your girls are lovely.

I just showed my 9 year old son the photo of your son. Impressed! Like your blog. Will continue to read it... God continue to bless.

I LOVE the pink cowboy boots with the pink floral skirt. Tell Bella "Bravo" for me. :-)

Beautiful photos, as always. Did you make Bella's skirt? Does it have a pattern? It looks like the perfect style for a girl her age.
