Photos by Lindsay.

This photo takes my breath away.

Pretty feet.

On the way to their favorite street to race.

my babies

Baby #3. Look at that skin. Ahhhhhhhhh.
CC and Robert routinely suck the same fingers (2 middle fingers on left hand) when they get sleepy. Esther tries it out too. Robert climbs at the Bluegrass Festival. This is his second time climbing. Ever.

AGS Bluegrass Festival

Saturday was sunny and hot-perfect for the Atlanta Girls' School Bluegrass Festival. Family fun a plenty! Rob made an honorable appearance in the dunking machine.Esther throws.
Robert pushes and dad goes down.
Esther and dad do the ring toss.

The fence behind the school got covered with tie-dye t-shirts. A perfect place for drying.
The sun shining through the shirts reminded me of stained glass.Esther dying a shirt.
Finished product.
Our friend, Virginia Parker, sat in at "throw-a-pie-at-a-senior." What a sport.

CC mellows out in the heat.

Face paint? Who needs it? I got cookie.

Robert climbed the rock wall 4 or 5 times. Video coming soon.At the top. Climbing had an incredibly regulating effect on him. When he came down he was cheerful, articulate and tired. I want a climbing wall in our house.

As I was warming up in the car, "Mom, don't sing like that. It hurts my ears and it hurts my FEELINGS!"- Esther

"Look Esther! There's a camper. When we grow up and get married, we'll live in a camper, okay?"-Robert

Upon losing tooth #3- "I hope the tooth fairy brings me 1000 dollars. But not in quarters, in strips, like a thousand strips you know?"- Robert

While observing some teenage guys in the parking lot at the YMCA,
"Wow- those guys are cool."-Robert
"How do you know?"- me
"Because they have baseball hats and their pants are really low down. They look cool."- Robert
"But Robert, you aren't dark. You can't be like them."-Esther
"That's okay, I can be cool, even though I am not dark."- Robert

blue sky, girls, kites and sunshine. Happy Earth Day.

This visual feast was provided by Gloria. She took the pictures and brought the kites to Glenwood Park for a playdate last week. THANK YOU Gloria. I can taste the sunshine.

The Lord is risen indeed, Hallelujah!

Easter morning was chilly and windy! That didn't stop the Easter bunny.

It didn't keep Anna B. from coming home either. :)
Easter finery:

We finished the day with an egg hunt and delicious dinner and Granny and Papaw's- THANK YOU!
