Henry Reading and Shouting

I had gone to the library yesterday and picked up a few Elephant and Piggie books by Mo Willems. Henry had never read these ones before and took off reading them like a pro! He has always loved letters and it shows in his reading, we're pretty impressed with his 4 year old reading skills. 

Henry had this song stuck in his head, "Shout, oh shout, shout for joy..." and spent the day shouting on the front porch!
He sure is a goose!

Tour the States - Official Music Video

Just in case you've wanted to know what our house sounds like...This! This has been playing non-stop, but it's fun to listen to and mesmerizing to watch. And if you name any state to any of the kids, there's a good chance they can tell you the capital!

May 2015 Family Photos

Thanks to our wonderful friend, Heather, we were able to get some photos on the University of Texas campus before we headed out of Austin.

This last building is where Ben spent most of his days.

Silly selfies
Cool roots
Neat nature trails

Lots of Harry Potter

2014 Christmas Piano Recital

We had the best piano teacher ever! Marcie Tirrell taught Evelyn, Hannah and William for the time we lived in Austin. William didn't start until May 2015 so he's not in this recital.

Hannah's Baptism

On January 10, 2015, our sweet Hannah was baptized. In our church, children are baptized when they are 8 years old. It was a very sweet day. We were so honored Ben's parents were able to visit for the special occasion.

Hannah and Ben in their baptismal suits, Grammie and Grandad and the rest of us.

We are so blessed with so many wonderful friends! Grammie is a pro at making a table look nice. We're so glad she was here to help! 

Neighbors, teachers, friends!!!

We sure love our Hannah
