I'm back! The kids have been so funny these last couple of months, I've just been so busy!! Sometimes I just don't even have a moment to write these things down before they go out of my head! So here's what got recorded! :)
Nat is convinced that she is going to turn into a boy, or used to be a boy.
Natalie: Ladies and gentlemens...here are some papers. That's the rule.
Z: Mom, what do they call a place where people's bodies lay after they die? Is it a secretary?
Nat: My watermelon has a lot of juice in it. That's why its called watermelon!
Z: If i grow up to be a person in a band, I would only sing songs that honor God. Is that what God wants?
Z: Once I got some seeds, and they were volcano seeds, but they were non-house-lava-ing volcano seeds. So I threw them back into the field behind our house, and a volcano grew and lava-d in our yard. But the lava didn't burn out house, since they were non-house-lava-ing volcano seeds.
Nat, when done eating Froot Loops for breakfast: I'll save my loops for later.
When we were on vacation, Davey would NOT fall asleep in the car. It was late, he was exhausted, and he was just crying and crying. Finally, my husband put his hand back and held Davey's little hand. David literally instantly laid his head down and fell asleep. It was so sweet!!
A friend came and fancied up my hair for my sister's wedding, and when Z saw me with my hair so done up, his response was, "What is up with your hair??" Always honest, I guess! :)
In the middle of the best man's speech at my sister's reception, during a pause in quiet room, Z also blurted out, "Mom, what is he talking about?"
When we were leaving our resort in Tennessee one day, where we stayed in a four-level log cabin with Joel's extended family, Z asked what the 'Welcome Center' was for. We told him it was a place to go if you had questions about your cabin. Z responded, "I have a question. Why does our cabin have so many stairs?"
When we were getting ready to pack up, I still needed to rearrange some things in our suitcases before Joel lugged them up the aforementioned stairs, so I asked Z to go wake up his Daddy, and tell him not to bring the suitcases up, because I was going to do something with them. Z said, "Okay, I will tell him, 'Your wife is going to do something with the suitcases.'" Lol!
Natalie and Z both said several times during and since vacation, "Silas is the cutest baby in all the world." :)
Davey had such a fun time with his cousin Reed, who is only a month older than him! They loved to shout NO! together, and get into all kinds of little mischief. :)
Z: I just saw a Japanese restaurant. Or at least I think so, because it was called Little Tokyo, and Tokyo is the capital of Japan. Apparently he learned this on Disney Junior! :)
Z, after reading a library book on the body: Your skin has five layers! They're all different colors. One is purple.
Nat was trying to say Hersheys one day, and said, "Yoshis" instead. :)
Z has started being embarrassed for the first time this month! First, he said he was embarrassed to wear his jammies to the library (but it was a jammie picnic, so everyone was wearing jammies), and then when I gave him a pink cup because his was dirty, he said he was embarrassed to drink out of a girl cup!
Zachary made up a song called Jesus, You're the Best. The lyrics go, "God, you're in my heart. God, you're in my soul. I don't love anything more than I love you." I got a video of him singing it, and I will have to try to upload it soon! :)
Nat made up a song called Only if You Obey, about when you get a treat. :)
When my parents were visiting, Z heard my dad say he was going to eat a bowl of cereal for breakfast. At the time, Z was swinging on the bull swing, so he asked, "You're eating a bull of cereal?" My dad responded, "No, that would be silly. You have to think about the context." To which Z said, "Context? Context is what you put in your eyes when you can't see!" :)
David has LOTS of new words!! He says "butt" for button, which totally cracks me up, and wah for rock. He says MOO for cow (LOUDLY, in the milk aisle and anywhere else he might happen to see a cow!). He also counts 'two, two, two, two, two'. Two is the only number that matters, right? :) He has said, 'blah' for please a couple of times, but mostly he just flaps his hands around insistently when he wants something. Sometimes he even does a little 'wanting 'dance, which is so, so funny. :)
While we were driving somewhere, Z announced that he had come up with a logo for a new company. The company is a restaurant called Wing World, and the logo is a world, but the continents are chicken wings! :) He is just so creative! :)
Another latest 'invention' of his is the Grass Chopper mower - it looks like a grasshopper, and has a mouth that opens and closes, chomping/mowing the grass. Look for it in a store near you! :)
One day during Bible time, we were talking about how we can ask God for help, and Nat gave this example: "Yeah, like when I don't know how spell my letters, I can say, 'God, help! Help! I don't know how spell my letters!" :)
My grandma sent a handwritten note in the mail, and when Z took a look at it, he said to me, "Mom, will you read this to me? I don't know how to read this font."
I hope to post Z's stories and book reports from the 2nd half of the school year soon, as well as our curriculum plans for the fall, and a wrap-up post of what we did for school this year, if anyone's interested! :) Hope everyone is having a great summer! :)
