I was noticing that I haven't posted in a while. I haven't had a lot of time, but more than that, I haven't had anything interesting going on. I think I hit a real low with the clean toilet. So, I took some pictures of the kids this week because they are my life.
Reese had an especially busy week. In addition to a haircut and wart removal, he lost his two front teeth. He spent all last week wiggling his two front teeth so they would be ready for Dad to pull them. Well, they were. They were so loose that they would move in and out as he breathed, but I am a wuss when it comes to teeth pulling, so there they stayed until Monday night FHE. We had a lesson on motorcycle/4-wheeler safety in preparation for our trip, and our activity was watching Reese have his teeth pulled. It was very entertaining. He is so cute with the teeth missing, and now can't say his s's. Oh, wait. He can't anyway!!!
Tuesday, Reese had a special visitor. He had invited his primary teacher, Sister Forbes-McGee, over for a visit the previous week. She didn't realize how serious he was until the next Sunday when he invited her again. So we scheduled a little visit for Tuesday morning. Reese was quite the gentleman. He opened her door for her and served her cookies and "Limenade". It was very cute to see him interact so properly with her. I think she got a kick out of it too.
Sorry about the shadows over all the faces in the next pictures. I am no photographer, but you can get the gist of what we are all doing.
We had a few really hot days, and I am surprising myself to say this, but I think I am getting used to this heat! We had picnics in the backyard and played in 100+ degrees without dying.
Anna led the girls in a Yoga session on the patio.
Reese was the trooper on the slip and slide, even after an unfortunate run in with the clothesline. He now has a nice gash between his eyes, but don't worry, he washed off the blood on the slip and slide.
Jessica has been such a helper these days! I am sure she is just bored stiff. Lauren is coming to visit next week and we are all VERY excited, especially Jessica.
Jeffrey spends his days snuggling in the shade with his Mama, and being one of the six cutest babies ever. He went to the Dr. last week and is 15 lb. 10 oz. He also shot up from the 25th percentile in height to the 80th!!! That explains his love of eating!
Oh yes! The big news is that "something handy happened" Thursday morning. Reese got gills! He really is part shark!
