Sianna loves to paint.
One afternoon, we took the bus into town. It was crowded when we got on so we all sat in the very last row in the back. By the time we got to our stop, the bus was empty. Schäfer asked if he could move to the front of the bus so he could watch the bus driver.
I love it when she wants me to walk with her.
Schäfer and Sianna were working on starfall.com while Selah climbed on the end table. Seriously, the third child has a completely different childhood.
Big shoes to fill.
Schäfer cashed in his blessings points to go on a date with Hubs. At Schäfer’s request, they went digging for crawfish, but on this particular afternoon, there were no crawfish to be found. So, Hubs took Schäfer down to the children’s park to ride his first roller coaster!
Sianna loves to run.
Love these fragrant spring blooms.
Sianna smelling flowers.
We made a quick trip to Nanchang which involved an overnight slumber party for the kids and Catan at midnight for the adults.
Safe to say we change out of our pajamas after breakfast.
Sianna picked some roses off the ground for her and Selah to carry.

She ponders eating it…
Then, she decides to hold the rose petal.
A final game of chase before the sun sets.

I was cleaning the kitchen when I looked over to see all three kids on the couch reading books. Bliss.
I can’t tell you who is more excited about warm weather. Sianna is so happy to be in dresses again. I am so happy to watch her twirl.
Schäfer and Sianna watch the boats float down the Yangtze.
Hubs and I are trying to grow seeds in egg shells. One planted… another watered.
This is my favorite place to be: on the couch with the kids and a stack of books. Unfortunately, I don’t do this as much as I would like because my littlest one gets into everything right now. Even though the house is baby proofed, Selah can still pull all the books off the bookshelf, pull out all the rubbermaid out of the drawer, carry items from one room to the next, etc. Life at 15 months is busy. Hopefully, in a few months, I’ll have three on the couch snuggled together for some read aloud time.
Schäfer drew a photo of Joseph and one of his sad brothers. He wrote “Joseph” all by himself.
