Showing me how much he's grown. I don't need a reminder! He's gotten so tall.
I made these the other day. So good. I can't wait to get back into my cooking/baking groove after this baby is born. Everyone has been nice about it, but there is no way they haven't noticed a serious lack of home-cooked meals and snacks around here.
The boys were scared out of their wits the other day...they found an opossum, playing opossum, behind the shed. They ran, yelling up a storm, to the back door and burst in. But of course, the temptation was too great and they had to check it out again, only to repeat the whole girly running and screaming thing.
We memorize Napoleon Dynamite quotes around here.
Another part of pregnancy I won't miss. Gross, but they've been necessary.

I realized I have four "starts" this year....all almost exactly a week apart-first with Abbey going back to high school and then it all ends with Patrick starting afternoon preschool in September. It will be nice that way I think, and give me time to keep up with it all.
