It's officially ours today. We spent a lot of time simultaneously preparing for a new series, as Zena, Madison and the grandparents spent a lot of time preparing the new house. Madison had fun running around again, and traveled around with everyone - pretty much wearing us all out! She has a bundle of energy that we wish we could bottle.

Here’s today’s coloring at church, where Madison had to color in the lines. Evidently, she was in the mood for some purple grapes. Trying to communicate this, she colored the broccoli, carrot, cucumber and potato purple. Maybe she's channeling her inner Prince.
Actually she goes through phases with colors. Today was back in her “purple period.” What’s admiral is her coloring in the lines. Sort of. But certainly a great improvement from the past, and definitely when you consider that we weren’t around to tell her to give that a try. On her own, she colored this group of healthy vegetables a nice purple color. Good job!
Madison went with us to service this morning to see the next installment of our Pridelands series, but also spent time with her friends in the nursery area as well. Afterwards, she went with us for a bite to eat. Since Mommy had a coupon for Longhorn’s, we went that way and got ourselves a free appetizer with a friend from church.
We didn’t order much, but it must have been a difficult item to find, because we waited FOREVER to get the food. Fortunately, they stalled with bread – and the free appetizer. Between that, and the pleasant company, we managed to stay cool. Get this: it actually rained hard for a bit and completely dried off before we got outside again. If we didn’t notice it from the window, we’d have never known it had poured rain outside.
Madison colored more things in at Longhorn’s. Daddy was about to let her color in the table and chairs if they didn’t hurry up! But it was a good time had by all.
When we returned home, Madison was singing the theme song to the Mickey Mouse Club, so of course we had to plug that in. It’s funny hearing her sing – and hearing her say, “Oh, Toodles!”

It's a double rainbow all the way.

Madison has her latest coloring achievement hanging on the refrigerator - she got it from church, and colored it in there as well. All of her latest works go on the refrigerator, of course. It is the letter "J," which stands for Jesus. Madison has been getting better identifying letters and numbers: tonight as we were reading one of her counting books, she was counting with Daddy to 10, which is a big deal!

Gazelles dance ‘cross the land as they were made to
Zebras zip about, whinny and neigh!
The ostrich cranes her neck at the remarkable view
As the slow turtle there makes his own way.
