Lassen Volcanic National Park

Only forty minutes from our home is the most amazing park and last Sunday we got to enjoy it after church!
The kids: Kimberly, Naomi, Ava, Luke, & Jacob
It was truly a holy outing, we had ice cream!
The Adventure Crew at Lake Helen: Kim, Tricia, Steve, Luke, Steve, Marton, Ava, Jacob, Naomi & Pam
Yes, that's a chicken leg snack.
At the Sulphur Works
Yes, it really does smell that bad!
Cousin Love at the Kings Creek overlook
Shamefully this is the first time we've taken our family to the park, since there's been more than two of us. The overwhelming consensus is that we're going back, soon!

The First Day of Watson Super School! 2010

Hambone in the middle saying, "Cheese!"
Sweet Sisters!
The girls picked out their clothes for the first day and Naomi did her own hair. Who said they could get so big?
Naomi (5), Ava (4), Luke (21 months), Tricia (31 weeks pregnant!)

We started school this past Monday and what a blessing its been! I was unsure of how difficult it would be to start up our school routine, but all three kids have done great. Ava works on her "Pre-K" while Luke colors or plays with something at the table while I teach Naomi her Math or Phonics. Then we all do Five in a Row together. So far we're just reviewing, but I've been pleasantly surprised by how much she's remembered.

Ava's 4th Birthday Party

We had the party at a nearby park
The wild tire swing with Marton & Daddy. Thankfully no one blew chunks!
Brooke, Ava, & Olivia
Amy S & Ava
The adults can thank me later... most of the pictures were of them eating do-dos!

Ava, Luke S, and Olivia
Later that day Ava got to pick out her very own Cowgirl outfit from Nana & Papa. She insisted on the red hat!
