Oh how much easier my job would be if they were always like this! nonetheless it still brings a smile to my heart when they do have these moments. :)

Lincoln Log Abraham

Joshua loves coins: big coins, small coins, foreign coins, old coins and new coins. He loves collecting them, giving them away, finding them, sorting them, trading them, and trying to find extra chores he can do to get more.

His current fascination is with the "Life of Lincoln" series of pennies. (Mostly because they're really shiny!)
I honestly don't remember having a conversation with him about the scenes depicted on the back, but either I've forgotten or someone else must have done so because he seems to get what's going on.

Tonight he told me that his favorite coin is 'Lincoln-Log Abraham Learns to Read'. Yep you read that right, "Lincoln-Log Abraham"! Puts a whole new take on history, huh? That little man cracks me up!

Kid Pics...

A few shots from our recent trip back to Hastings. The kids LOVED hanging out with their cousin, Liam, and some of the pics are just too cute. Although, it is nearly impossible to get three little kids all looking pleasantly at one person at one time. And, when all three of the photo subjects are mobile and in love with cameras some funny antics ensue!
Somehow the camera didn't come out until the last couple of days, so missing are pics from the GR children's museum and dinner with my college roomate "Aunt" Cathy, and playdate with Paula (including a really sweet hug between Joshua and her little girl, Ella...too cute!). I also got to sneak out early one morning sans-kids and have a coffee-date with college/blogger friend, Liz and hear about her family's upcoming adventures!
So refreshing to catch up with old friends!!! :)
