Won't budge

He refused to come inside yesterday so he could stay outside and watch contruction workers in our alley for about an hour and a half. When we drive he yells "momma truc!" over and over until I say, "yes, truck." As soon as he sees another one, "momma truc!" He is a funny little man right now.

Ander's social skills

If the girls and I are doing something together and Anderson stumbles upon us, he stands away from us and watches and says, "Hi" with a low tone and a half wave. Then he puts his hands down or in his pocket and kind of stands there watching before he turns around and walks off. He is the sweetest thing I've ever known.

Here he is wanting to play with the girls but just playing with his trucks. He is holding a truck about 80% of the time.

Here is he with his fake teeth.

Contemplative Monastery

We have a friend who works for the Tulsa World and he put together this slide show for an assignment he did at this Benedictine Contemplative Monastery (apparently the only one in the United States).
It's called Clear Creek - check out the link:

Each year the girls school does a Walkathon. It's kind of funny, they walk in as many circles or laps that they can. They get a mark on their back for each lap. Lexi looks forward to it all year, she LOVES it. Ainsley didn't get to participate last year because that was when she had broken her arms. She gets nervous about stuff. She told me, "Mommy, I'm scared to do the walkathon. I've decided I am not going to run at the walkathon - just walk!" She ended up having as much fun as her sister always does. They were tired by the end... Lexi ran and ran and ran...

Here they are heading outside...

Buddy mad b/c he can't go run with them...

I'm tired!

Here is the picture I have as wallpaper on my computer. He wants to wear the left over pullups he found all of the time. He follows me around holding the princess pullup until I put it on him.

I've been so busy helping the silent auction for the girls school. Still recovering. More posts to come...
