I feel like my blog is a little redundant...wash, rinse, repeat, but this is life now. I know one day I'll look back on these days and miss them. We have been up to more of the same.
I got a sneak peek at Madeline's pictures, and oh my word. So stinking sweet. It was a "princess" photo shoot which is a little cheesy I know, but she thought it was the most magical thing in the world. I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures.
More frog catching...her love of frogs is a borderline obsession. They are everywhere, and she is actually pretty good at catching them. She's quick, and we crack up watching her.
It's not always rainbows and roses here though. This girl has a mind of her own, likes to voice her opinion, and is SO stubborn. I have no idea where she gets that??!! :) So while 4 has been a fun age so far, it's also a little frustrating at times. I think this was when I wouldn't let her run across the dirt pile beside the pool. My worst fear since they started the pool has been her falling in it. Seeing as how it's concrete and all, it's pretty terrifying so we've been kind of strict about her playing around it. Clearly, she thinks I'm unreasonable! :)
PS we also got a fence! They finally finished it after about a month!
Speaking of the pool, it's sooooo close to being finished. They said hopefully by this weekend so fingers crossed we'll be swimming this weekend! Can you spy a sweet girl in there? Rescuing frogs now doubt...sometimes she and Terry play ball in there too! haha
The flagstone and tile were supposed to be "bamboo" colored and when they did the tile and the flagstone, it looks clay-pit orange. I strongly disliked it but the guy said it's a natural stone so you never know what you're gonna get, blah blah blah. I decided that it was a very first world worry and to let it go. When they put the pavers in, I liked it a whole lot. So I can sleep well now and so can you! :)
And of course, we've been to the beach a couple of times. I just love watching her at the beach. It just never gets old for her or me either really.
When we went on Thursday there were crabs everywhere, but they are so dang fast! I never did get a picture.
At one point, the clouds covered the sun and the sun was just peeking through. The water was sparkling, and I was just overwhelmed. God is pretty amazing! I can't imagine looking around and seeing anything but His handiwork!
Finally, we got our toes done. It was overdue for me, and this was the first time Madeline sat still long enough to not mess hers up before we left! I was kind surprised by her color choice, but she said it matches Mario Kart so I guess that's good enough for me!
