Embrace the Camera

This week has been crazy.

I've been leading activities and games for Vacation Bible school at our church.  Between 9 and noon I get to hang out with 200 elementary kids.  Unfortunately the weather hasn't been cooperating and we've been stuck in the gym.  Big bummer, because I like to play water games :)

Anyway, between my crazy, rainy mornings and evenings stuffed full of sports I was very happy when Action's baseball game got cancelled last night due to rain.

Smiley and I took advantage of some reading and snuggle time (with glasses on and my fabulous rained on hair):




Then Sassy joined us!  Hard to believe she's smiling because about a half hour before this pic she was shrieking in pain after slamming her finger in the car door.  Let's just say, her finger is looking nasty!


And since I mentioned that Action's baseball game got rained out last night, I would also like to mention that Sassy made her fast pitch softball pitching debut in a tournament last weekend.  And yep, you guessed it, it was raining!  She did pretty well until, the game got called off due to the fact that the home plate seemed to be sitting in a wading pool.  What a sloppy mess.  (Action was actually dumping water out of his shoes ~ Yuck!)



Enjoy your day and don't forget to step out from behind the camera and enjoy the moments together!

We read the same storybook Bible to our daughter and love it! Hope the weather gets better for VBS - being stuck inside with that many kiddos is hard.
