Colorful

Before church.

Having breakfast before church.

They love the crash course track.
Peeling crayons. Parker was so good and just sat in his high chair and watched his big brothers. We were listening to our favorite Bible songs CD and were singing too.
This was when he was still interested:)
Almost ready.
So many crayons.
Colorful!
Our finished products.
So fun!
While our crayons were in the oven we used the dot markers which are a big hit.
He wrote words with his dot markers.

This morning the boys and I went to church and then came home and had donuts. We worked on laundry and the boys played with the new race track from Mimi. She brought it to Baylor last night because she was so worried about his head. She was ready to throw up when it happened and was so nervous. They had fun playing with it for the longest time today. Speaking of laundry I am in serious need of a laundry fairy:) I feel like I finally get caught up and get it all put away and another mountain appears. I think summer combined with potty training and feeding Parker solids has tremendously increased our daily dirty clothes pile. We read some books and played and then went to the library for the final day of the summer reading program. We logged our final books and the boys picked out their prizes. After the library we ate lunch and then worked on a colorful project. We collected our old broken crayons from around the house to use. The first step was to take the paper off and then break them in pieces. The boys each had a muffin tin and could put them where they wanted. We were using the pieces to make our own crayons. Baylor made a Colts blue and white one and one with all shades of green. After filling the tins we melted in the oven at 350 degrees for ten minutes. When we took them out they cooled and then we put them in the freezer. Once they were frozen they popped right out and the boys could color with them. I have been wanting to do this for awhile and it was really fun and the boys enjoyed it. Cooper lost interest after awhile but Baylor loved it. The hardest part was taking the paper off the crayons but a knife helped with the process. Tonight we had dinner at Mimi and Pop's house and the boys watched shark week at their house. Baylor was so excited for a week of shark shows.
