Here we go…

This week is sure to be a fun-filled, action-packed week, so I am pretty sure that this will be the post for the week.  We get to host some friends of ours who have moved to another country.  They’ve been there over a year; it will be so good to see all of them and to meet their new addition! […]

“Poor Ruby”

Today was a beautiful Friday.  I did some work around the house–you know, laundry, making beds, putting away toys, and so on and so forth.  Ruby was at school.  Molly and Mack played outside most of the morning.  Mary, Ben and Katherine made a stop by while some people looked at their house.  We ate lunch and let the kids […]

Oh, the randomness

We have not been doing that much this week besides school and house work.  It’s enough to keep us busy, but it really isn’t all that exciting.  So here are some random pictures from around here. We had a birthday party here on Sunday.  Katherine, Ruby’s friend, turned 6 years old.  The Koester family is moving to TN soon, so […]

An old pic

I was looking for a picture for Josh when I ran across this one: and this one: And I remember that I loved this hair do on Molly.  I want to have it chopped like this again.  Too bad she says she wants it to grow down to her ankles.  What’s a mother to do?  I would only do it […]

Quick Story

This morning Mack awoke COMPLETELY SOAKED from tee-tee.  This has happened for weeks and weeks and weeks.  The issue is that he puts his hand down his pants…I know, too much information…anyway, I know he will outgrow this.  At least I really, really hope so!!!  We make him go to the bathroom right before bed.  He wears a pull-up at night, but still–he wakes up wet. This morning I said, “Oh, Mack.  Good Night!  What are we gonna do about this?”  I then began thinking about not giving him any drink after 5:30, and I said out loud, “I am just gonna have to cut you off.”  MEANING, I would cut him off from drinking too late.  He thought I meant cut him off, literally.  He looked at me perplexed and said, “I don’t want you to cut me off, Mama.” I cleared things up quickly, though maybe if I had made him think I was gonna cut him off he would stop putting his hand down there!!!!  UGH.
