clean and pretty for the moment

Sunday morning is the only time all week I feel we all look our best and are clean and pretty, at least for a minute or two (don't forget Abbey is an avid connoisseur of dirt and dog food).
I wouldn't say Sunday mornings are peaceful (I blame that on myself, turn off the blankin' TV and lets have some peace and quiet for CRYIN' OUT LOUD!!) But I love matchy match dresses - as does Paige.

... but they do clean up good and look angelic at least for a little while.

F... is for Family

Abbey needed a family picture for Monday's joy school. I made a collage with just a couple pictures then I decided Jason needed a new screen saver so I put a bunch of pictures together. We definitely love all our family.

Kung Fu - James

James has been taking Karate every day after school in the gym. 

 He absolutely loves it. I guess the first day he kept telling the instructor he had seen Karate Kid (1980's version) and that he already knew a lot from watching TV.

He is such a goofball to watch. Here they are running relays. They have to run to the other side of the gym and do 5 or 10 pushups and run back. 

He loves karate because it is something fun he gets to do with his buddy Seth. 

He's actually not too bad when he pays attention. 

His pushups make me laugh. He moves his bum up and down more then his elbows. 

They learn a lot of self-defense tactics and he can take down bigger kids. 

I thought the some of the things they learned were pretty cool. He can't stand still in line though waiting for his turn.

Here Seth is pretending to be a bully while the other boy does and arm sweep. 

The other boys are just watching the show. 

This class only lasted 6 weeks, but another session starts up in November. Yeah!
