Apples galore

We went to my Grandparents house yesterday for our annual apple picking extravaganza.

Taming the yard

We had a dump truck of black dirt delivered on Monday afternoon to try to level out our bare spot in the front yard. The kids were hilarious running around barefoot.  I realized how little they go without shoes on outside.  Comments like, “Oooo, I love how the black dirt squishes between my toes.”

or

“I love getting so dirty, ya know boys get dirty – girls really don’t like to get dirty.”

Whew….that was a lot of work. A huge thank you to Carl for coming out and helping me for 1.5 hours this afternoon. IMG_1813.JPGa IMG_1821.JPG IMG_1832.JPG IMG_1827.JPG

Tuckered out

Jack had a lot of fun at Patrick and Joy’s wedding tonight. So much so , that he fell asleep fully dressed.

Oh wait…I found another one who fell asleep in the hallway.

Eating machines

I (Carl) took Jack and Max on a special date yesterday and they nearly finished off a pizza by themselves. Then they washed it down with some Starbucks.

We’re in for some serious grocery bills for the next several years.

Silas quote

“When I am the babysitter, I am going to make all the rules.  ‘Like, you don’t have to eat all your food.’ Oh wait, I don’t want to babysit because that would be boring.”

Me: “Yay – your done with math. You can check it off your list.”

Lydia: “Math is so far off my list. It just fell off.”

That is how much my sweet Lydia “loves” math. I am praying I can get her through consumer math by the time she leaves the house. I have a very strong feeling that Calculus will not be on her transcript. Who knows maybe when math becomes all letters again, maybe she will like it.
