So over the next few weeks…

DSCN9047

I’ll be taking lots of “together” pictures!

A whole month

Wow, I can’t believe it has been over a month since I last posted.  I think that is the longest I’ve missed.  Things have been busy around here, I’m glad Feb. and March are over!  They seem to be our busiest months!  Things are now slowing down, and I’m breathing a sigh of relief!  We actually got a full day of school in today, the first in weeks.  Bryan got the garden planted this afternoon.  I think he said we have 17 rows of corn.  I hope and pray it all comes in!  We love corn!  He has pintos, limas, tomatoes, beets, carrots,  cucumbers, watermelon, and cantaloupe planted  and probably some I’ve forgotten.  I think the garden gets bigger every year.  Of course our family seems to get bigger every year, and the bigger the kids get the more they eat!

Leah and Seth came running in today with an idea, they wanted to clean out the kiddie pool for the babies.  The pool has held our sweet potatoes since last fall, and there were some still in it.   They cleaned it out, and the kids had a blast.

It was warm outside, but the water came straight from the hose…

DSCN8783

They played and played…

One really mean brother poured cold water down his back…

To celebrate Jonathan’s birthday…

DSCN8309

I honestly have a hard time believing…

DSCN8311

He’s 15…

DSCN8308

I wish I could scroll back a few years…

DSCN8325

I want to be selfish, and keep him to myself…

DSCN8331

Cuz he’s my FIRST baby!

DSCN8323

Mom’s, you know the swell that hits your chest…

DSCN8338

When you see one of your own…

DSCN8366
