I know that my birthday is two months away and I know that I usually don’t for anything, but this year I think I need a Leatherman for my purse.
Raising boys requires different tools that raising girls. Little girls you make sure that you have bandaids, nail clippers, and chapstick. Boys? Bandaids, wet wipes and a Leatherman. I have thought to myself on two different occasions this week, “Man, a multipurpose tool would come in handy right about now.”
I have been having a grand time with these two rascals today. It reminds me of the days when Grace and Lydia were little. They would play for hours together and hardly ever fight. Jack and Max only had a few scuffles but then they were strapped in the cart at Home Depot and little boys do much better if they can’t touch each other.
We dropped off five big kids to bible camp tonight. 4/5 were very excited to go. The 1/5 who wasn’t excited will change his mind once he knows what to expect. He was told about 100 times what to expect, but he needs to experience it for himself before he actually gets it.
Lydia, Adie, Silas and Titus rode unicycle today in the St Cloud Parade.
I was a proud Momma!
We finished VBS this week. Another great year for everyone.
McFarland USA is one of my new favorite movies. The kids absolutely loved it tonight. I’m grateful I bought the DVD because I have a feeling that this will be a new favorite road trip movie.
I am so blessed by another year of this man’s life.
I took the girls on Friday to Fort Snelling down in the cities. The girls found out how long it actually took to do laundry hundred years ago.
On Saturday the cousins came down to surprise us and hang out at the lake. We spent the night and enjoyed an amazing Father’s Day together.
We did think it was funny that two sets of kids were dressed the same when they arrived.
Max and Jack didn’t make it very far before they were out for the count.
They started the day by spending the morning creating a zoo organized by climates. I was quite impressed by their resourcefulness.
This afternoon I never expected to find them both on top of the refrigerator. When I walked into the room, Jack was lightening quick off the top and left poor Max to fend for himself. It took everything in me to not laugh. He started crying because he was guilty, guilty, guilty.
I found out later that Jack scaled it between the wall and the refrigerator. Max stood on a chair while Jack pulled him up the rest of the way.
We took the kids to Duluth for a day trip to see their cousins and ride the timber twister for the Birthday Boys!
