Looks a Bit Like Spring to Me!

We've been loving the warmer weather this week! I think it has inspired me to switch out all the girls winter clothes for warmer weather clothes. Man, every time I do this I forget how many bins of clothes I have to carry up and down the stairs to change 3 little peoples ever-changing sizes. I'm so grateful for all the hand-me-down clothes we've received! It's such a gift not to have to buy all new clothes. I must say, Geneva has a TON of 3T dresses- that's what you get being the youngest of 3 girls!!
 We did some canvas painting this week.

The girls painted an ocean/sunset background on canvas. As we study the names of God in Bible time, we are writing them in black pen over the painting. So far, we have "I AM, Elohim (Strong Creator), El Shaddai (Almighty) written on our canvas. I love that we are getting to know and understand God more personally through looking at how He has revealed Himself to us. It's amazing to think of the significance of one's name- maybe past down in your family, maybe it has a special meaning, or maybe your parents just liked the name. I was named after my mother's babysitter since she had such a special impact on my mom. God has over 900 names! What a great God we serve!
 I made some anise almond biscotti. 
 They were so good!!
  We spent our lunches outside this week. 
We had several play dates and soaked in the sun with friends outside. 
 Geneva is growing up way too fast!
 The way we did school one day- ICE CREAM and reading on a picnic blanket!
 Miss Penny came over this week and made "soup pies" and played restaurant with the girls. 
Girls movie night!! Daddy was gone this week in Cali, so we had a few special girl-only activities.
Ballet ended this week for Savannah and Naomi- such cute friends.
So glad Grandma Young is here to join in the fun!
 Dinner and a movie at the Charles house was a blast!
