The children are happy so that's the important thing. Owen and Wes have spent every day outside doing something. Chasing each other, picking up sticks, we've gone on walks, met lots of our neighbors, even sat on the front porch at night to look at the stars. Summertime weather does have its perks, but I wasn't really ready to turn on the AC in March. ( I honestly also have my doubts that its really going to get any cooler!)
Owen has gotten so tall. His gangly little legs are so much ganglier in shorts. We had to make an emergency run to Old Navy to grab some properly fitting warm weather attire.
On the flip side, Wes seems awfully short :) I had him in some 18 month shorts and they were basically pants. Wes goes in for his late 15 month check up next week so I'll have to hop on with some stats. He seems stocky but short. We'll see where he is on the charts. I'm also wondering if they have a means as to measure craziness...because, wow. Temper, temper. :)
When I look back at my life, I will sadly recognize this period from Jan 2012-March 2012 as the dark period of no pictures. Meaning, I have really took none. NONE. I know. Bad, bad, bad. I may have snapped a few here and there with my iPhone, but nothing of significance. Josh has left the camera downstairs for me now so I'm trying to get inspired to take some new pictures.
I am recovering from strep throat....I don't really think I've ever been so sick. It was terrible. Penicillin is truly bringing me back from the dead and I can now at least function again. I spent two days in near delirium. Not caring how much food had been spilled on the floor or how gummy the countertops had gotten. Josh was in charge and I know for dads to be in charge, I can't expect what I get done every day to get done by him. I'm trying to make up for lost time. The laundry is a desperate situation (its almost always bordering on desperate anyways! :))
This is the calm before the storm in relation to spring soccer. Josh had no practice this week at all....but next week starts outdoor practice...meaning, practice...every day except Friday :( Games start in full force after Spring Break and its a six-week whirlwind of craziness for Josh.....and I will be on my own with the kids for a bit. I'm trying to gear up for it!
That's all for now. Just a little update! House projects have largely been on hold for, but I do hope to do some painting over spring break. We'll see how game Josh is :) Happy Summer everyone!
