Vi is out of surgery. Dr. Buckmiller said everything went well. We are still waiting to be brought back to Vi.
Violet cheered in the Jenks Christmas Parade today. We all had fun going to the parade, and the kids liked collecting candy. She did a good job after she got over being chilly, but it was really a great morning for a parade. We spent most of the rest of the day around the house, and the kids climbed the tree in the backyard for quite a while, and even took some books outside. It was a great day!
Quentin and Violet both entered an art contest at their elementary school. They loved getting a canvas of their own, picking out paint colors, and deciding on what they wanted to paint. They had to stay within a theme (Together we can), which they didn’t really understand. Quentin just wanted to paint fish or dinosaurs – he didn’t see the need for a theme. They finally settled on a reef painting for Quentin (Together we can save the reefs) and a rainbow for Violet (Together we can make the world a happy place). I love them and we are going to hang them in their rooms. Quentin got 3rd place in his age group, and Violet got an honorable mention. They both got trophies, and were very happy!! Sorry for the bad pics.
Some pics from last Sunday afternoon (11.07.2010) – climbing trees (or, rather, the one tree we have that you can climb) and swingin’.
