Look how dirty Justin is! At first I was mad, but than I realized that they were just being boys. And I did send them out in the backyard to play. I ended up waiting until Rene got home so I could run the errands by myself.
Oh, and here is the only "posed" picture I got of the boys.
Matthew and Justin building the Ark.
Helping to load up the animals.
Climbing to the top to check out the view.
Matthew and Justin are putting the hearts into their puppies.
Fluffing them up!
Packaged and ready to head to their new home where they will be taken care of and loved!
I love this last picture. It captures how much fun they were having!
Learning about manners. I wish I would have taken a picture with their faces and you could see how bored Matthew and Justin were. Behind them were some cows and they really wanted to go see them.
Churning butter....what you don't see is Justin getting butter all over his shirt.
Hmmm, I wonder where I can get one of these?
Their teacher is talking about recycling and the environment.
The kids are making their on "compost" bins.
I loaded my memory card into the machine and guess what popped up? All the pictures I thought I had lost!! Yeah!!! Now I have a lot of catching up to do.

The boys have been having a blast in their PE and Science classes. I'm very thankful to have found these classes. The boys are doing well in school. Justin has been a little tougher than I thought. He is having a hard time staying focused. So I've had to break up his day more. He loves history and literature. Matthew is doing great and reading up a storm. In fact yesterday he was able to do most of his schoolwork on his own. Woo hoo!!!
We have also done a few fun field trips. Last Wednesday we headed out to Riley's Farm. We hung out with some new friends and enjoyed yummy caramel apples. After we headed to a friend's cabin and hung out with them for awhile. They have the neatest cabin out in the woods. They have a tire hung on a tree and the kids had a blast swinging on it. It was so beautiful up there.
Today we went to the Skirball Museum in LA. They have this amazing hands on Noah's Ark exhibit. It was nice not having to remind the boys to not touch anything. If you get a chance, you need to go. It's hard to describe in words. Trust me, it's worth the trip. I believe some Thursdays are free. You just need to make an appointment. Matthew loves the story of Noah's Ark. In fact, he said he was going to read the story to Justin tonight when it's time for them to go to bed.
Speaking of bed, time to get the boys ready. I'm off to drown my sorrows with a Diet Dr. Pepper!
