You know my Mom's over when you see all of this homemade delicious bread. She has been baking up a storm with the kids. Anna picked out homemade hamburger buns.
Today my Mom and a few of the girls made Danish pastry.
Everyone thinks they are wonderful!
Today us girls went to a friend's baby shower. We didn't win any of the games, but we had fun trying. One of the games was earning points for having certain things in your purse. They asked about things like lipstick, a hairbrush, a checkbook, and perfume. If only they would have asked about shot records, catheters, baby wipes, and Costco ads-- then I would have won! Going to the shower was a neat experience for the girls since it was their first.
Later in the day, John took a bunch of the kids swimming. It was at least 104 degrees here today.
I spent some time in the garden. It is growing like crazy!
Jonny, Paul, and Andrew played this basketball game tonight. Not sure any baskets were actually made, but they had fun trying.
Oliver is knocking our socks off with all the things he is learning to do. It is so bittersweet. On one hand he is the sweetest baby in the whole wide world who still loves to cuddle which we all love, but on the other hand he is growing by leaps and bounds and entertaining us with all the new things he can do. We love to see him thriving but as he grows he is losing a little bit of his babyness each day.
All I can say is-- Olliver don't grow up too fast!
Dennis, Alex, and Nolan still love Legos. They play with them through out the day. They sleep with the little men. They pack them in their backpack for show and tell. Nolan even holds onto one when he goes to the bathroom.
William loves Oliver so much. But he will only sort of admit it. :)
Annalyn can be such a ham for the camera!
Here is Caleb getting help from Adam as he studied for his SATs. He took them bright and early this morning.
Adam is officially done with high school. He graduates this coming week. Last week at an awards ceremony he received another scholarship and summa cum laude as the top 2% of his class. He has already began working. He will work through the summer and then start college in September.
We are so proud!
