Caleb, Seth, Ethan, and David were inspired by the Duck boys.
Seth was so cute on a Sunday morning that I asked to take his picture; he struck a pose.
Oh Grace! Why do you want to read that??? (sister of five brothers)
David caught a bullfrog out of the pond.
Seth had a tick on him; I was able to pull it off but it was a sobering reminder of the problem we have around here with ticks. If they are in your area, be diligent in keeping them off your pets and children (and self). But don’t let them keep you out of the woods!
With my littlest love.
Sarah thought the artificial flowers in the dentist office were real, she smelled them and said they smelled “like chocolate”.
Something got this catfish out of our pond and killed it. Rich and Ethan stocked them a couple years ago so we are sad about it.
At the end of the day I used to hold babies in my arms, now I have no babies. However, I do have cats and a handsome husband ready to snuggle.
Boys on couch. Ethan and Jacob have been sleeping in the living room every night, they think it’s cozier than their own bedroom.

I finally put pictures in the locket Hannah gave me for my birthday.
We went to the diner for breakfast yesterday.
We had no milk in the house and the boys had dentist appointments anyway. So we ate and then went to the dentist. It was fun.
Sarah and I had a little walk around the ponds together yesterday afternoon; my darling chatterbox. I picked her up several times for a squeeze.

I saw this Carl Larsson painting this weekend and immediately wanted to repot my plants into unifying terra-cotta planters.
Sometimes my heart hurts because life is so beautiful and short. Sometimes I wish I could freeze time. I never want these days to end and yet I know they must someday. Whenever I feel this way (overwhelmed) I think of how grateful I am to have Jesus….and I am not without comfort for the days to come.
“Thanks be to God–through Jesus Christ our Lord!” Romans 7:25a
