How long will this last?
We started out the day with Mr. Jack Herbert coming over and helping us dig a hole for our new maple tree. He also helped shovel wood chips because we need to redo some landscaping from where a whole bunch of evergreens died.
We visited the cousins over at Grandpa and Grandma’s house.
Lastly because we haven’t have enough fun while Daddy and the girls are gone, we ordered pizza and went to Lake George. My boys are little energizer bunnies…they just keep on going and going and going. We get done with one activity and there are already asking for what’s next. They are going to keep me young. By the way, they all ate three slices of pizza and Titus ate four (which is half a pizza) plus the crusts from Max and Jack. I have no idea where that child puts all the food he eats. I can’t imagine in 5 or 6 years.
We were up and at ‘em early this morning. With Ava knowing how to climb out of the crib, it makes it rise and shine as soon as she can get to the side of my bed. After her dad picked her up, we loaded the van to go to Dutch Maid and over to the train park to eat our deliciousness. Oh my! It was so good that I won’t need that for awhile.
Silas strapped them in for safe keeping. I laughed aloud when I turned around from strapping Max into his carseat.
The boys found ducks and I had to put a damper to their party by not letting them take off their shoes to “just put their toes in the Mighty Mississippi.” Nope. Not Happening.
We came home and cleaned the inside of the van (power washed the carseats and everything) and they all earned 10 tickets for helping, which they promptly used to watch a movie (or two). I then decided to do something that I have never done before. I WAXED the van. That was a lot of work. I mean waxing that white whale was a workout. I know I burned all the calories from my Dutch Maid doughnut.
Silas came out to admire my hard work and said, “Wow, Dad is going to be so happy with you. (Pause) No wait, Grandpa is going to be even happier. He hates driving our van when it is dirty. We should tell him to get over here and drive this thing.”
Because waxing took so long, I fed the little rascals lunch at 1:45. They thought it was so funny eating so late and with only 4 boys in the house – everything is funny to them. Bathroom humor has risen to an all time high without the three girls here.
Tomorrow will be new adventures.
He is in mourning because I’ve decided that his three favorite shirts are now too small.
“Six shirt” – he’s seven so can wear the seven shirt
“Noah’s Ark shirt” it has holes in all the seams.
“Duluth train shirt” he has worn this one longer than the other two combined. I think we are going on three years. It has already been through 3 other boys before it was handed down to him. It has been a favorite.
He has to come up with new favorites which is going to be hard. He doesn’t like anything that I buy, so you might be seeing him wear his grey t-shirt. It is the only one in his drawer that he will wear now.
Poor Silas…growing up is hard!!
