Wes is home!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
The last day before he comes home from these trips is usually the worst day for the kids, with emotions ranging from hyperactive silliness to dissolving into tears over toys to eating cupcakes for lunch. I’ll let you determine who belongs to which behavior. So we needed a fun activity for distraction…
A special thanks for my good friend Suz, who gave me the idea, and Pinterest for expanding it. There is a lot of sports going on right now. Normally I would refer to that as a “marriage ending amount of sports” on television . It is reminiscent to the racket that is “March Madness”. Why can’t we just be honest and name it accurately? You say “Planning for it end of February Playing in March and just kidding some of April Madness” would look awkward on the screen? Well, I think that’s the price we need to pay for truth. Anyway, the Olympics are different. There’s costumes. And dancing. And
the swedish chef Bela Karolyi.
We don’t have Bela, but we muddled through with our own Butler Family Olympics!
First event- Brave Sample Trying at Central Market
“Here kids, try some yummy coconut water!”
“I’m definitely gonna throw up”
“I thought you LOVED me!”
“Now I need a cookie”
They also tried sashimi, hemp milk, kiwi (you wouldn’t think that was so brave until you hear them describe them as monster eyeballs), sheep cheese, and rice milk ice cream.
Next event- Animal Race and Toss!
Our brave tributes
And I am just waiting for the day this is in the real Olympics…
My delicate flower kicked tail in this. Shocker.
And finally, I let them choose what to compete with last. They may not share my genes, but they share my heart, because they chose…a singing contest.

Josiah is so gangsta
Selah wanted to be dramatic. I know this comes as a surprise.
All in all, a great day and a fun way to pass the time until daddy got home!
