Frances at 4.5

She is either the sweetest child ever or the craziest person to live. She doesn't live in the middle. Only on the fringes.
When she is the sweetest child in the world, she cuddles, tells she loves to everything in the world 80 billion times, holds your hand, gives you kisses.
When she is the craziest kid in the world, she throws stuff at you, hits you, tries to bite you, and tries to run away. 
Thankfully we live in the happy place for most minutes of the day.
She loves princesses and star wars.
She isn't afraid of any rides at Walt Disney World (she road space mountain for the first time on our last trip!)
She lies a lot. She says she wasn't lying, that she was trying to trick you. She'll say she doesn't like school. That she doesn't like her favorite food anymore. I might be raising a little sociopath (Fingers cross this is a stage).
She doesn't like to walk. She likes to be carried. She thanks John for being a nice horsey (after he carries here on his shoulders). 
She can almost count to 100 (if you help her a little bit along the way).
We play an alphabet game where I say the letter and she says something that starts with that letter. She is very good at the game.
She can write her name and her brother's name. She is very interested in learning how to spell more words.

Pixie Dust

We went to Magic Kingdom this past weekend. As a reward for riding Space Mountain for the first time (Frances was suddenly tall enough for it!), she got to pick out a new pair of earrings. After we purchased the earrings, the cashier asked Frances if she wanted some pixie dust. She of course said YES. When we walked out of the store, Frances was trying to jump so she could fly. She asked me why her pixie dust didn't work.

The new earrings (of course) inflamed her ears -- so we are back to the earrings that her ears were pierced in. It looks like poor Frances can't handle cheap metals in her ears just like her mom.

Max is very well behaved at school. The entire school year his clip was never moved down. Max claims he was the only kid that happened to.
He loves going on vacation. 
He is like his dad in that he loves to know random facts.
Max participates in gymnastics and soccer right now.
He wants to do running club next year.
He loves to play with the app snapchat.
Max like to play board games -- trouble, chutes and ladders, minion life.

6 on 6 Blog {May}

Hey! Another 6 on the 6th blog post! Please be sure to scroll down to the bottom of my post for the link to continue around the circle.

Once again I didn't take very many photos this month. At some point, I am sure my desire to get my camera out will reemerge.  We did go check out the local flower field in April though (before it was completely ready though, since it was the only time we had to go).

That is me in a photo! Courtesy of my husband.

I am really enjoying having an underwater camera (this is the one I have). I bought this one because it can shoot in raw.
My daughter is an expert at the underwater camera business.

We visited a local county fair...

6 on the 6 {April}

I'm trying out another blog circle. In this one the theme is simple -- post your favorite six photos of the month! Since I've barely been taking six photos a month in the past few months, maybe this will be the kick in the butt I need to start shooting again.
