Thankful for: the fact that my family is home and all together. Thankful that things are slowly getting back to normal. Thankful that our family and friends are so incredibly awesome and have helped us out so much.
Looking forward to: I am really looking forward to Memorial Day weekend. It is the kick start of summer, Amy and I have our first wedding of the year together, and it's gonna be awesome. We are actually thinking the kids are all old enough to go camping. In a tent. Ohhh, yeah.
Listening to: Grant is hiding from Ben, but Ben isn't looking for him. Ben is trying to trace his feet on the magna-doodle, but he's not too skilled at that yet. Drew is still sitting in his chair, eating breakfast. I am LOVING the quiet that is here right now.
OK, that didn't last. We suddenly heard a huge rumble and ran outside to see that the neighbors had a dump truck unloading gravel at the edge of the pond. We have a huge pond on our property that is actually shared by three neighbors, and the ones who have the biggest hunk of it are doing a little pond-remodeling project. We are very interested in seeing how it all turns out.
The boys were so into seeing the dump truck that after it left, we hung out there for a while watching a backhoe move stuff around, and then we looked closely at a big slug, and then into the yard to play and ended with a walk through the spooky woods. And as we passed the holly bushes, I was reminded once again that "We no eat the berries, or we die and go to heaven." To which I wanted to drive home the lesson, "Well, you might not die, you might just get really sick and hurt a lot and have to go to the hospital but you won't be able to play in the playroom because you'll be so sick." I really don't want them going to Sunday School and having their teacher teach about how great heaven is and having them think, "That sounds fun! hey, I know how to get there!", and then have them eat a ton of holly berries in an attempt to go to to the greatest. place. ever.
Well, that's all I have for Friday Facts today. I want to go play Candy Land with the boys and I can't think of anything that's missing, so I'm off. Have a great weekend, everyone!
