Reading Nights

Since before Christmas we've been reading the Harry Potter books whenever we're at home in the evenings. We're now on the fourth book. Daddy reads, and we all listen. While we listen, the favorite pastime is to play with Momma's hair, and Momma likes that just fine. Oh, and no hair style is complete without a picture. I just cleaned off about 100 pictures of my hair from my iPhoto. I thought I'd put a few here for posterity's sake.
Naomi has taught herself to French braid, Caleb has taught himself to braid and Bethany has fine tuned her creative skills. Amos brushes every once in a while, and I'm sure Jacob would want me to say that he has NOTHING to do with arranging hair in any way shape or form. He just listens to Harry Potter.

Belated Anniversary Overnight (Best Date Ever)

We started off our date with a walk through Laumeier Sculpture Park.




Then we headed over to the Missouri History Museum.
I remember the days of old;
I meditate on all Your works;
I muse on the work of Your hands.
Ps. 143:5
After checking into Union Station Hotel, we took the Metro down to our restaurant, Kemoll's--on the 40th floor of a sky scraper by the river. We sat at a table with this view (no joke) and enjoyed our heavenly steak and salmon. And then we topped it off for a to-die-for chocolate cake.


We walked back to our hotel.




And the next day we hit the Art Museum.


Amazing views both inside and out!


Owning a Horse

Naomi did her end-of-semester project on Owning a Horse (her someday dream), so we took a little field trip to the farm where she rides. She interviewed her riding teacher and the siblings got to ride (led by Naomi, of course).
Thanks, Naomi!
