My first smartphone and a peak into our week

Some of our old pots/pans and dishes I listed for free on Craigslist. I was intending to donate these to our church for a fundraiser yard sale, but they were inundated with donations (a good thing). If you ever want 50 e-mails in a short time frame, list your dishes for free on Craigslist.

Anna at her gymnastics class, she is sitting in the middle front of the picture, the second from the left. She loves gymnastics and it's a perfect fit for her to get her energy out. 
Mailing out many, many support letters for a new ministry opportunity that we're hoping Jesse can work full-time for, serving with a Bible translation organization.

Anna's sand art.

The beginnings of a baby bump, here I was about 15 weeks pregnant.

I took this picture of my innocent looking children the day that David got covered in mud outside and then pooped in the tub. I'm usually not grossed out with motherhood, but that moment was difficult.

David enjoying some frozen yogurt!

David's older cousin and uncle made this bike a few years ago and I thought it was cute how David was driving with his screwdriver in tow.
Anna working on painting a sun, during her S is for Sun kindergarten unit.
Proudly wearing her sun badge, "Jesus is the light of the world!"
So I finally got a smartphone after having my "dumb" phone for four years. I didn't want to upgrade and pay the $30 extra a month data fee from Verizon, so I held out until Jesse let me know that we would no longer have to pay extra for my smartphone with a new plan and it would equal out to about the same monthly payment!

I was able to upgrade to my new phone for a penny... and I love it. I didn't think I'd use it as much as I do, but I absolutely love the to-do list app that I have now (I get a lot more accomplished during the day with its reminders) and I love the camera features, too. It makes it so much easier for me to capture those moments with the kids and to send them instantly to the computer. It is tempting to spend more time fiddling with it, so I try to refrain from the extras during the day (facebook, instagram, games, etc...) until the kids are in bed.
