Did I Mention I Was Behind?

Uh - yeah, I think I did... and that was 16 days ago... AND I HAVEN'T BEEN BACK ON HERE SINCE! One would think that my NOT being on here regurgitating my life story and giving play-by-play accounts of sand table play (and sand-eating) would allow for me to do some serious "catching up" and getting things "in order." I got 2 words for ya. Yeah. Right.

But that's ok - we're truckin' along, making the most out of every day God blesses us with. No, I STILL don't have our house fliers done. No, I STILL don't have the For Sale By Owner sign in the yard. No, I STILL don't have the house on-line ready to sell, sell, sell. No, I STILL don't have my paint colors picked out for the new house (a.k.a. The Compound). I could go on and on, but frankly I would end up embarrassed at all of the "No, I STILL don't's."

However, I HAVE witnessed Caleb draw the most marvelous pictures and try and try and try (and just about perfect) writing his name. I HAVE swelled with pride every morning, night, and sometimes in between as my boys hug and kiss one another like they've been apart for days. I HAVE enjoyed morning coffee and muffins with my Aunties. I HAVE blown bubbles and watched as Connor chases them down calling, "Bo-boos! Bo-boos!" I HAVE watched with ridiculous amounts of pride as my 2 children were THE ONLY 2 who listened and enjoyed the story at the library during story time. I could go on and on, but frankly I would probably bore you to death with all of the "I HAVE'S."

And here we are today - preparing for VACATION!!! Caleb is beyond over-the-moon excited as he knows he will be in the presence of Shamu tomorrow. He's already talking about how he's going to feed the dolphins, let the water bucket dump water on his head, ride the water slides, build sand castles, etc. We are all so excited - like it's 4 kids ready for vacation rather than a mommy, a daddy, and their children. But, isn't that how it should be?! I hope so... 'cause it is!

Now then - if you don't want to be bored outta your gourd with vacation pictures - stay away for a while! Because I'm sure I'll make you ill with slide after slide of my babies (and their parents) loving life!

Here are some selected scenes from this month so far...

<--- ARRRRR, Matey!!! Caleb was enjoying dress-up time and sailing the seas in his pirate ship.
