Love these people...


 I love the sweet moments between daughters and their daddy. 
 My big helpers. What good shoppers they are! We only got a few things that weren't on my list.
Savannah and Geneva play so well together while Maddie and I do school!
That day they were cowgirls.
 
 Saturday mornings usually start with some sort of pretend! Reepacheep was a part of it, too.
Star Wars! Maddie dressed the girls and called them her "younglings"! So funny. I also love the bubble wands used as lightsabers. 
 
We made homemade soap with Mary and Beth this week. Such a great home school project. 
Here it is curing at home!
  
She dressed herself. Love the patterns!
Saturday fun with the fam. We went to My Dairy Godmother.

Shopping for Flips Has Never Been so Entertaining!

 So we went to Old Navy for their $2.50 flip flops. We ended up having a pretty fun time!
 The girls wanted a "family photo".
Such silly girls.

AWANA

  One more year of AWANA has gone by! I'm so thankful for the Bible verses the girls have hidden in their hearts.
 Savannah's Cubbie class.

 
Cute friends.
 She's finished 3 Sparks books!
Maddie's Sparks class.
We celebrated with friends at 5 Guys after!

 We had a great hike at Rock Creek Park on Jesse's day off.





 
After gymnastics we enjoyed dinner at Coastal Flats and walked around Fairfax Corner.
 So sweet.
 Treats!
Neva took a bath in her frozen yogurt.
Bedtime with the girls is so special- most every night we read, sing, and pray together.

Grandma and Grandpa Robert

 We're having a great time with Grandma and Grandpa Robert here!
A little rain couldn't stop us from a 4 mile walk around Lake Mercer.
 Savannah walked the whole way!!

 
Geneva was tired after our cul de sac dinner and had some rest time.
 Sunday we were thrilled to go to church with Grandma.
 We went to the Kennedy Center where the girls participated in the instrument "petting zoo".  
It was a great experience- the kids were able to play many instruments that make up an orchestra. 




Then we went hear the NSO Family Concert while watching Dan Dunn speed paint to the music.
What a fun afternoon before the AWANA end of the year parties.

Daughter Dates

It's so fun being a mom of daughters! We have such fun together. Lately, the girls and I have been reading Anne of Green Gables. It's amazing to me that they beg for more chapters after sitting for a while listening (maybe it's just to put off going to bed). 
 Well, a group of mothers put on a tea for their daughters with an Anne of Green Gables theme. 
Maddie and I had a special date!
 She was excited to wear a string of pearls that my dad had given me when I was little. 
 Maddie and her sweet friend, Faith at the tea.
 I loved her face when she tried the lemon meringue!
 Our table was made up of "kindred spirits". 
My girl is growing up to be such a sweet young lady!
We had a great time together listening to a devotion about being close to God, playing games like marbles and jax, and eating delicious tea treats.
Since Savannah was unable to go to the tea, I took her on a bike date to Starbucks. 
She biked and I ran. On the way home we played at the park. 
 Savannah was thrilled to bring Grace on her bike.
 Cookies and apple juice.
I love Savannah's imagination- I think (hard to hear) she told me a pretend story the whole way home!
