It's been a good week.  We've gotten a lot done around the house.  The kids have enjoyed having their dad working on projects here for a few days so they can help (fence building, really).  And, things have just been normal - no places to go, nothing that has to happen, etc.  So, it's given us ample time to rest (and get over the colds), and just do our day-to-day things.  

Carter // 5 - Thanks to the suggestion of Kathleen, I got a couple of these Hot Dot kits for Carter's birthday, and we just pulled them off the shelf.  He's loving them, and it's so much fun to see him so excited when he gets an answer right.  So far, his numbers are better than his letters. 

Peter // 3 - He found what looks like a tomato worm outside, although we don't have a garden this year.  He put some leaves in the little bug box and I heard him say, "Hey little you want to go live back outside?  Okay."  Then he let him go.

John Paul // 2 - When we went on our little weekend trip, John Paul developed what I thought was a little cold sore on his bottom lip (I get them, so I felt bad that his started so young).  But, as the days went on, more and more appeared.  Still contained to his face and neck, I'm not so sure it's not another round of hand foot and mouth.  Poor guy.  It's almost over though!
Sophie // 1 - Sophie found John Paul's hat and put it on like this.  Then, as she was crawling around the yard, John Paul found her and wasn't too happy.  Needless to say, she didn't wear it long!


  1. that last picture I die...crawling around with big brother's hat, too cute.

  2. Awww, but she's so cute in it! :)

  3. I'm so glad you are enjoying the Hot Dots! One of our two went missing a bit ago and I just found it yesterday under the covers of Teresa's bed. She had taken to bed with her to do some extra practicing. Ha!

    You have such beautiful children, Britt! This is such a fantastic idea and what a way to look back on their early years once they grow older!
