Our kids have a "Things We Want to do Before We Move" list... we are checking things off pretty quickly now! One of them was to go to the Children's Park again...

Our kids have SO enjoyed the AWANA program here! For the last two years (through the school year), they have gone every Wednesday night and played games, learned more about the Bible, learned a Ton of verses and made new friends! Their leaders have been such a blessing and are just wonderful, godly people. The kids will Really miss them. Here they each are with one of their leaders:
Keenan with Miss Marta
Moriah with Miss Holly
Moriah's Cubbies class
With their awards and prizes
Keenan getting his award from Mr. John (he was amazing)
With some of his Sparks class
Little Miss Poser at a shoot
...with a friend she just met =)
At our favorite splash pad:
Caleb has become brave enough to run through the "Spraying Rings" this summer! =)
These two love the buckets that dump
Caleb even ventured in!
We ended our MOPS year, having a paint studio come and teach us how to paint a hibiscus! Fun!
Since this was a more advanced painting, our canvases had a pencil sketch already on them
So much fun!
The whole group
(I Love how everyone made theirs their Own!)
My finished painting
The kids and I made our own "lava lamp" the other day (from Pinterest)
All you need is:
A clear bottle
Alk seltzer tablets
Fill the bottle a little over half way with the oil. Fill the rest of the way (to within an inch of the top) with water. Add 10 drops of food coloring. Drop in an alka seltzer tablet! (1/4 of one is enough, but a whole one is more dramatic).
So much fun! (You can do it over and over!)
In the dark with a flashlight behind it
We got to witness another baptism on the bayou last week, as Vivi and Noble were baptized by their parents! =)
When you put pictures in reverse order, you can make magic! Here is Keenan's "Tower that builds Itself!"
