April 2016!

Ellie on the recorder, Easter egg hunt, Daniel loves the States song, Dad-o mummy, Brachiation ladder, Joseph crosses the brachiation ladder, Ellie stands and chatters, Ellie walks with a mobile tray (again, longer) (and more), Crafts, Googly eyes, Daniel and Dad-o play catch, Daniel gets sleepy, sleepy Dan twirls his hair, Ellie eats a banana, Ellie practices standing, and Ellie jonesing for the camera,

That means there’s still the entire first quarter to go… but I’ve also done more than a quarter in a reasonably short time, so there’s hope!

Vivienne in the bear trap, Daniel in the bear trap, Ellie on the drums, Joseph’s origami review (part 2) (part 3) (part 4: body book) (part 5) (part 6) (part 7) (part 8), Ellie and the watering can, Big Brainz, Climbing Ellie, and Dice in a box.

These are all from May, and in case you’re wondering where the first half of June went, well, it appears that the videos from June 15th are all we have from the first half of June.  If it’s any consolation, May and April both seem to show the same pattern: few videos in the first half, disproportionately more in the second half.

I am dauntingly, terrifyingly behind in posting videos of our kids.  Photos, too.  So here are a few for your viewing pleasure from September 27th, 2016.

Abraham booklet, Memory verses (again) (and again), Halleluja chorus, Alphabet song, Narration (again) (and again), Writing (again) (and again), and the lead-up to an unrecorded Halleluja chorus demo.

I’m really hoping we’ll get another Hallelujah chorus demo.
