Did you have a good week too?

Last Saturday, D went to a program at the library. He got to do all sorts of activities about Dinosaurs. He helped put together this big Stegosaurus puzzle:
He created a cast of a raptor claw that we were supposed to come home and bake (for 2.5 hours!!) but we didn't do the bake part in time so A got to it. Now it is a train. It was a fun day. The girls played with Roy in the regular part of the library while I went with Dylan to this.

Monday night for FHE we used some blocks D got for Christmas to build something from the scriptures. Here's K's rendition of the gold plates:

D said he wanted to make the tabernacle. Roy assumed D meant the LDS Tabernacle where the Mormon Tabernacle Choir sings but actually D has been reading his Old Testament for kids and meant the Tabernacle the children of Israel used in the wilderness. I think it came out alright.
Here's Roy's temple:

Tuesday, we went to meet D's new soccer coach. He's starting indoor soccer. His first practice is this week. We're all very excited to go cheer him on!
Friday evening we went to the mall. We wanted to do some window shopping and let the kids play. A LOVED it. All the kids had fun but this was probably the first time A's been big enough to really get out there and play. Yeah...we don't get to the mall much.
I was having a difficult time getting the kids together for a picture so just imagine K is in there between A and D!
Yesterday we went to IKEA. I really really want some shelves for downstairs. They didn't have the ones I want though. Apparently the packaging is changing for the Exedit 5x5 shelves so we'll have to check back in February. On the good side, K is finally tall enough to get into Smaland! Barely. Seriously. The worker girl came out to put her hand on top of K's head to make sure she was in the yellow. And she was. By the poof of her hair! That meant an hour of Roy and I shopping with only one kid and about 4,000 other people. IKEA was so busy!
Now today, I'm home with D who has a bit of a fever. No other symptoms, but the mysterious fever.
