Alden is 4! But before I dive into the festivities of his celebration, I have to take joy in the fact that God has blessed Wally and me with 11 years of marriage, and we are still loving it! Of course, we get grumpy (enter me) or irritated or impatient or need space or need lovin' and affection (enter Wally), but I thank God for His faithfulness to us and for Wally's faithfulness and love toward me. To think that Christ's love is bigger and better is really overwhelming. If only I could live like I believed that!
So back to my 4 year old guy.
Here are some of their finished projects.
I also printed out some pictures of various superheros doing feats of daring, and showed pictures of Jesus, doing similar things. He has many superhero traits and powers, but best of all, He is real and more powerful! This was fun!
Then it was outside for treasure reconnaissance. The evil Lizard from Spiderman had stolen their treasure, and we were calling all superheros to help us recover it. First they had to use a web to tangle up some evil fiends left by lizard to slow them down:
Then they had to scale walls and slide down into the swamp and destroy the water bombs left by the Lizard:
Next they swung over a pit on a web:
Captain America loaned his shield for them to toss into the sand trap (good target practice):
Superman had to try too.
Next Thor's hammer was used to destroy more water bombs:
The superheros had to get creative as evil thugs came pouring down from the sky:
Lastly was a face-off with the Lizard, himself. He was no match for the zapper (aka silly string can with spray-paint attachment). This worked really well, especially the balloon figure b/c it moved and recoiled from the attack:
All in a day's work for a superhero. No need to look excited:
Thankful for superheros!
A new take on the Super-Nanny.
