This Past Week

Oliver loves to be outside.
One night we made homemade pizza for dinner.

Oliver loves to climb up on chairs now.
John's oldest brother and his family have been here visiting.

The kids have played lots of Wii.
There have also beena few rounds of pinochle.
There has been lots of lounging around too.

Look-- I can stand all by myself Mom!
What a handsome young man William is growing up to be.
Kid pile!
On a hot day I had the younger boys go outside and wash their bikes.  They had lots of fun!
They were no longer hot or bored!
A large bucket of water also provided cool water fun!
Anastasia is such a sweetheart.  She will sit with the boys and patiently play Sequence with them.
Nolan had another post-op visit with the ENT.  His ear is draining again so his next surgery was postponed.  He is now on a new antibiotic eardrop to clear it up.  We'll go back to the doctor in two weeks.  Hopefully his ear will be clear so his next surgery can be scheduled.
 P.S.  When I have the time and the right words, I would like to share about a certain little someone.


  1. Life is always full with kids! Cool to see Connie and family there.

    I saw a neat idea on Pinterest the other day where you build a basic structure with PVC pipe, like a cube without the bottom, drill holes, attach the hose and it becomes a carwash for little boys. Might be something your big kids could build for the little ones. :)

  2. LOVE all of the pics of your BEAUTIFUL family.

    We are hoping for a Road Trip your way next month, and I would love to bring my kids by to meet your sweet family. I'll keep you posted.

    Laurel :)

  3. William is sure growing up in a hurry.

  4. Praying for continued healing for Nolan. Love that Alex is standing! Wish we were piling on with our kids at your house too!
    Can't wait to hear about your certain someone! HUGS!
