Spring Break

I'm being a terrible blogger, of late. Since April is full of birthdays, surely I'll do better next month. In the mean time, here are some pics from our Spring Break trip with the fam. Most of which are stolen from mom. Wow, I'm inconsistent AND a photo thief. I promise, I'll make up for it.

First, allow us to welcome you to historic Branson, Missouri. Where there's not much history, but there are lots of large fake bears, gorillas, Mount Rushmores, Cape Cods, Taj Mahals...I could go on and on.

We tried to see more of Natural Branson. There was a lot of rock skipping, and that's always good for the soul.

There was also a lot of coloring, by kids and adults alike. Also good for the soul.

Keddi and Madi in the lighthouse (see aforementioned "Cape Cod").

The girls even played in the pool. I am not going to tell you the temperature of that water, because you would send the authorities immediately.

The girls had lots of quality conversation with Papa. And they spent a lot of quality time in this, their favorite spot. The bottom of the stairs. Weird.

At the end of every darn good evening is a darn good walk, followed by a rest in a gazebo.

It was early. Ten after six. Chris was at the gym, and I was helping Meredith dress for school. Madeline wandered off. This is what Mer and I found when we got downstairs. Little peach helped herself to a breakfast of chocolate chips. Not surprisingly, this girl knows how to start a Friday RIGHT.

She's hitting her stride, yall.

Tonight she read all 62 pages of Green Eggs and Ham without missing a beat. But what was fun was the way she owned it. She repeated lines throughout the book, not because she had missed a word, but because she didn't feel she had done the line justice with her dramatic interpretation of it. She's not always so patient with herself in the world if academia, but this was different. Sam WOULD express his sorrow over his friend's cowardly palate, or Meredith would not turn the page.
