Summer Pictures

Well, it's been almost 6 months since my last post. Hopefully I will do better. I am very tempted to give this blog to Katie as part of her school project! These pictures were taken at Anna Claire's birthday party and at the lake house when we visited with Tom's parents.

We will start our second week of homeschool tomorrow and Parker and Braden will start Lake Ridge Academy next Tuesday. We celebrated Kara's birthday Saturday with an olympic party and we had alot of fun - more pictures to come....hopefully!

Classic Quotes

In the vein of "Kids say the darndest things" comes quotes from the Wilson kids...

Use your money wisely
Mom: Kids, we need to remember to take our money to church tonight to give to the missionaries.

Braden: I don't want to.

Mom: Why not?

Braden: I don't want to waste my money.

(So much for the Great Commission.)

For everything there's a season...
Nanna: Today we found out that two people died.

Ryan: Nanna, is this dieing season?

Can't we all just get along

Katie goes to a Bible study at a friend's house.

Mom: Katie, what was the Bible study about?

Katie: How to get along with your siblings?

Mom: Well, did you learn how to get along with your siblings?

Katie: I don't know. They weren't there.

Recent Pictures

Two weeks before Christmas, Katie and Kara had their first "sisters only trip." They flew all by themselves to San Antonio to visit and Nana and Papa and their friends. They had a great time- going to their class Christmas parties, helping Nana bake Christmas goodies and playing cards with Nana and Papa.

With the girls gone, the boys did play!I did try to get a Christmas card picture of the kids, but, as always, this is not easy. I think on Christmas Eve I did get a better picture, and I will post that one later. (It's still in my camera)

These pictures were taken at our neighborhood park with the help of Aunt Lauren when she came to visit and help us get adjusted.

One great thing about moving up here has been that we are able to see Trent and his family more. Here is a rare good picture of all the kids!
