Nate got some new glasses. Actually, he got 3D glasses when we went to see Monsters vs. Aliens this weekend. He thinks he's quite special with his new specs!

I took my Girl Scout troop on a field trip to a local scuba shop where they learned to snorkel. At the end of the lesson the instructor gave the girls the option to try scuba diving! It was an excellent field trip and the girls had a blast.
You can see lots of photos of Sarah and Paige playing fishy if you click here.
If you prefer the short-and-sweet photo display, just scroll down.
Sarah and some of her friends -- ready to go!
Sarah the Snorkel Queen
Sarah geared up to scuba dive!
That's Sarah scuba-ing!

My boy always seems to have a haircut plan. On our last trip to Mr. Steven, Nate was thrilled to come home looking like a businessman -- if you remember. On this trip, he didn't want a haircut at all. We rattled off ten different possible styles and he vetoed every one of them until, finally, he declared, "I want to look like Draco Malfoy!"
Draco Malfoy is Harry Potter's enemy at Hogwart's School of Witchcraft and Wizardry. We've been reading a chapter a night and, as a reward, the kids get to watch the movie that corresponds to whichever book we just read. We've only finished one book and are almost finished with the second.
Anyway, back to the story ..........
Nate asked to look like Draco Malfoy. I told Mr. Steven to give him a regular cut and then style it like Draco. The plan worked and everyone was happy.
Here's Draco Malfoy
Here's Nate-o Malfoy
Can you see the resemblance?

Tonight was the Daddy/Daughter Dance at the girls' school. They got all dolled up, got corsages from daddy, went out to a fancy dinner, and are at the dance as I type.
I took a whole bunch of 'before' pictures but haven't had a chance to really look at them yet -- I've been on my date with Nate. However, this picture caught my eye as I was downloading and I love it. I had to take a second to put it in the blog!

Here are a few pictures that don't have a real story.
I just like them.
This is Paige very early in the morning with sleepy eyes.
She's laughing because she's sitting on the breakfast bar and she thinks she's a gargoyle.
This is Nate after he slid down our sliding board in his karate uniform
... after I warned him not to do it.
This is what a business man looks like when he is wearing his favorite jammies.

Paige got a soap making kit as a gift from Mrs. S.
In reality, it wasn't so much a soapMAKING kit as it was a soapMELTING kit. Didn't matter. Paige loved the idea of pouring hot melted lava all over a few plastic bugs.
Now, however, she's not feeling quite fulfilled with having this experience only once. Now, she will only bathe with soaps she made herself and, therefore, we've been drowning all sorts of creatures in bowls of melted soap.

Nate asked me to make him a scavenger hunt with a prize at the end. Bossy little guy.
He hid on the swingset while I drew pictures of nearby destinations and then taped them all over the place.
The prize? A baggie full of tortilla chips in the mailbox. What?!? He didn't give me any notice AND he's easy to please!
