Paul snagged this moment on his phone: little brother putting his head on big brother's lap during church. Big brother loved it, by the way!

Poppy stopped by today bearing CHRISTmas gifts from Aunt Wendy and Uncle Mert.
And then there was a little fun to be had.

Noah got a new high score on "Bop It" today: 57!!

We were accidentally given some mail that belonged to a neighbor down the road, so after our schoolwork was done today, the kids ran down the road to deliver it. I caught them racing each other back home. Imagine my surprise when I looked at the resulting photos and noticed Noah had only one shoe on!
He later explained that they were racing, he lost his shoe, and he just kept going so he could win. :) He figured it was worth walking back for it if he could come in first.
And, oh, Aunt Wendy, she loves her new clothes...
But she doesn't love Mommy's big flash...

I found a great new reading program online called Reading Eggs. You can register up to four children (works out nicely, doesn't it?) and they all work at varying levels. The kids love it! Even Noah is totally captivated. As a former teacher, there are definitely both pedagogical and developmental problems (with regard to age abilities) about the program that bother me. (I really wish companies would do a better job of consulting with parents and teachers on these matters.)
But despite the occasional ill-placed skill or over-their-head task, the program gets my children excited about learning and is a perfect supplement to our homeschool.
(I'm sneaking this picture on my muted iPhone. Shhhh!)

Today we were so happy to have Daddy back home after being gone since Thursday. We just hung out at home and then went out for pizza. I just love the tables here. You may remember pictures of Gabriel taken here. It's fun to play with the reflections.
*Sigh* Late again. You can check out all the Project 365 posts at Sara's blog: "make music from your heart to the Lord. Eph. 5:16."
