Mommy's Make-up

This is NOT a black eye! Joshua disappeared upstairs for a few minutes - and when we went to go find him - this is what we saw!

Seatbelt Lessons

Since we broke into the backseat of our van with the addition of our third child, we began to teach Karis how to buckle her own seat belt. I didn't want to have to climb into the back of the van to buckle Karis every time we went somewhere, so we made a family activity out of seatbelt lessons.
Joshua cheered Karis on as Craig tried to teach her how to buckle. Honestly, I thought it would be a process of her figuring it out, but Craig is such a patient instructor, and she got it quickly! I asked Craig what other little tasks we could teach her!!
