We're Into It - Blog Party

One of my daily blog reads, Hope Studios, posted a list things that her family is into right now. I am joining the blog party with my own family's list of things we are into. With a 3 1/2 and a 5 1/2 year old, our list changes fairly frequently, but here are a few recent things we love.

Liam is really into Legos and Lincoln Logs. I am constantly amazed at all the things he builds. - The men are Ricardo and Jimbo and they are on a 2 seat helicopter

Peyton is into reading the Magic Tree House books - both kids are really excited about reading

Art- Liam created this robot by himself with tape, glue sticks, scissors, and paper

I am so into yarn and am doing both crochet and knitting (part of my stash, Thanks Grandma Lily!!!)

A sweet little crocheted sweater for a friend's baby
We all like games - card games, Uno, Cootie, Don't Break the Ice, Dominoes

Liam loves his stuffed elephant, Mr. PeanutsAnd Peyton loves her monkey, Mr. Bananas

I am still playing flute, 21 years after I began, in a wonderful concert bandMark and I are WAY too into coffee, especially locally roasted beans

I am really into reading God's word. I read the Bible in the NIV translation, and now I'm working on the Message translation. I love this version, but I miss my notes in the Study Bible I have. I make myself get up early every day to read it and it's been a great thing in my life.Thanks, Jennifer for doing this. I had a lot of fun thinking about the things we were into right now and taking some pictures of those things. It's cool to see how this will change as we all get a little bit older!

I forgot I'm into dominoes too! We play it nonstop all weekend!

I agree - it is a great way to capture our interests and to see how they change. We also love legos and games.

Is that the sweater you've told me about? I love it! Great job!

I had to get a new Bible recently...my old one was worn out so I got the Message. I didn't like it - I think mostly due to the fact that it is difficult to use both in Sunday School and at home when I'm doing my lesson. So I just went and got the NIV Quest Study Bible a few months ago. I love it!

Love your list! We love legos, also. And that sweater is adorable. Great list!

Have you and Mark tried "Shenandoah Joe" coffee? They're in Charlottesville. I think they have some of the best roasts I've tasted -- especially their Mexican!

Enjoyed your list. My oldest is into Magic Tree House books and will read them over and over again.
