Learning to Laugh


A couple months ago when we went camping and saw the Lincoln museum and New Salem, the kiddos each made a rope. The other day I was studying and I saw Sophia building away. She was playing with John and i asked her what they were doing. Apparently they were monkeys in a zoo. When I took a second look I saw that she had make this swing…she was making monkey noises and swinging from the banister…I laughed so hard!


9-30-15 Samuel lost his first baby tooth with a second close behind! He was so excited to find a $2 bill that his Daddy stuck under his pillow. His teeth are SO tiny. My precious little boy is not so little anymore at over 50 pounds and almost up to my shoulders in height.


John and Jed are good sharers. Sharing germs that is…so we have been playing with soap and water washing toys and building forts. John is really excited about learning the names of colors. He also enjoys telling Zack that he is a man.
