Our little dude turned 3 this week. Normally, on a day like today I would be editing and posting all birthday-related pictures. Sadly, since I am still unable to post his pictures fully, it seems silly to post party pics.
Our X-man is such a tease. He still says he’s 2, but the twinkle in his eye and the smirk on his lips lets me know he knows he is 3. He is such a smart, witty little thing.
One more from our newly-turned-3-year-old: He has been walking around the house singing :Hallelujah,” lately. I don’t recognize the tune at all, nor do I have a clue where he got it. Sunday school, perhaps? It sure is sweet, though.
My middle gave me the sweetest card today. She had found some jasmine growing wild in our backyard, and knows how much I love it! After she gave me the card, she pulled me outside and showed me where it is. She made my day!
The apricot tree is FINALLY blossoming. I was beginning to get worried, as we already have some ripe peaches, and yet the apricot tree was looking dead. Praying we get lots of apricots; my all-time favorite fruit!
My husband left for Boston this morning, so it is just the kiddos and me this week. I’m considering caving on my “no screen time during the school week” rule, as we are all recovering from X-man’s party, and still very tired.
Laundry: Does it ever end? There is currently clean laundry sprawled all over my floor that was once folded and sorted, but since scattered and messed up as it never got put away. Tragedy.
Blog books! Ok, after years of wanting to publish our blog books so we have a hard copy in case something happens, I finally bit the financial bullet and began. I printed 8 books, which took us from 2008 – 2013. They are SO wonderful to have, and the kids have been devouring them. I am so blessed to have them! Can’t wait for another coupon code so I can start publishing more. (Not-to-mention, they have inspired me to try to keep up with blogging!)
Kids are itching to pick our peaches… don’t they look amazing? (Unfortunately, the rats have helped themselves, as well.
On the bright side, no rats have invaded our strawberries the past few weeks. I’m not sure why, but I am grateful!
The big girls found a bunch of ladybugs on their run, so they sent the little ones out to catch them and add them to our garden. AND THEY DID. Hooray!
Our little greenhouse seeds are starting to grow. 🙂
