So here is Emma saying the Hail Mary in Latin. Yes, she did just turn 3 just 2 months ago. LOL she wanted a picture of her saying it to put on the blog.
benedicta tu in mulieribus,
et benedictus fructus ventris tui Jesus.
ora pro nobis peccatoribus,
nunc et in hora mortis nostrae. Amen
She only messed up the very last line of it. For that she went to bed without supper. lol Kidding!!
I think kids are way smarter than they have us believing.
Anyway, enjoy the video. I'm sure Emma will remind me daily to replay it for her.

The kids went to a Stockade Days event...or something like that, with grandma and grandpa about a month or 2 back. While there they got to try their hand at throwing a tomahawk. They enjoyed it so much grandpa (handy guy that he is ) made a log target to put in our yard. Now they can practice (yea, they really need the practice...maybe grandpa wants to come and practice with them too...lol) right here anytime they want. Well, not anytime, we aren't dumb enough to let them throw a tomahawk unsupervised. The really good thing is, my kids will be prepared for any kind of emergency where we would have to hunt for our own food.
More scaring. Joseph leaned "Bobby Bully" the Karate practice dummy up against the door of the bathroom so as Elizabeth opened up the door it would fall in and hopefully scare her. He succeeded, although the picture was a split second too soon. The picture shows her while she's still processing the situation. I just hope she doesn't go try something like this at school tomorrow.
The kids did not go to school today. It was a late start for them and they had dental check-ups also, so we just didn't bother sending them for 2 hours. It takes longer then that to drop them off and pick them up. All the check-ups went fine, except, when Matthew got done with his turn and he was waiting for Elizabeth to get done with her turn, they said Matthew needs two teeth pulled. (Brent just had his wisdom teeth pulled a couple weeks ago and he was pretty much out for a day and a half, so this is going through Matthew's head) Matthew needed two baby teeth pulled because they were in the way of his permanent teeth that were trying to come through. So needless to say Matthew was quite nervous about going right back in to see the dentist. But he got some Novocaine and some laughing gas and lickity split those teeth were out, and he was a trooper. Way to go Matthew!
