Today during Faith's routine morning prayer, I heard her saying "Thank you that I'm blessful and thank you for my blessfulls." So cute! She helps Rahel with her morning prayers now and it's such a crack-up!
The girls have been dieing to go camping this summer and the weather has finally consented so I took them to D.I. and we found a tent for $6, a sleeping bag for $5, and the cutest little camping chairs for $2 and $3. You can't beat camping for 16 bucks! We got out the tiki torches to keep the bugs away and they camped in the front yard with the baby moniter - you know, so they could make their orders ALL night long! Brother! They actually stayed out there all night - impressive!
Faith is 7 and growing way too fast! Faith is our little pleaser. She LOVES secretly making people happy (o: She's also got a dangerous crafty side!
Our sweet little Rahel
This is our little teddy bear home forever. She just turned 4. She is very quick and already has English down pat. Her feet have grown 4 sizes in 5 months! Rahel is the most loving little girl we have ever known. We're so lucky to have her in our family!
Our little twig on the Lemon Family Tree
My sweets with just the right amount of sour!
Faith: Mom, can you sign me up for soccer? I want everyone to see my super kicks!
After every verse of scripture is read during family study, Faith always asks “what does that mean?” Tonight, Rahel decided she had the answer for Faith’s question: “Jesus cooks” while doing stirring motions with her arm.
Faith: See? I told you that stuffing the blankets in there would be better than folding them!
The squeaky dinosaurs use their squeaks to find nice friends. - Faith
Where's my swimming soup? - Rahel
Upon dropping her dinner in her lap, Rahel exclaimed "Dain it Rahel"
Faith excitedly pointed at some hummingbirds and said "I know what those are! Baby woodpeckers!"
Every time we drove over a cattle guard in the Uintas, Faith would announce "there's another cow trapper"
Faith found a bug and ran through the house yelling "where's the bug smacker, where's the bug smacker"
Faith was freaking out as only a bug could bring on, and when we asked what she saw, she told us that there was a "sox elder bug" outside!
In the car, Faith announced: I am smart and a cutie!
Please share these with as many people as you can. Education is so important. I know everybody is curious, especially those of you who will be in close contact with Rahel. This is a very informative article. It's a little long, but worth reading to the end.
