The Boys

Hudson's way of entertaining himself on laundry day.  He loves his (sister's) ride-on toy car.  On this day, he kept zooming up and down our long hallway.  He would manuever around the laundry baskets and head back out again.  Fulton had a great time chasing Hudson and trying to catch a picture of him as he sped by.  Hudson did take a rest on the watermelon which I thought was just so cute.  I don't normally laugh much as I do load after load of laundry for our mega family, but on this day, I laughed a lot!

Towards the end of the summer, meaning when we had carefree days before our rigorous homeschool schedule started, I was reading a Clifford book to Lilly, Ellie, and Ethan.  Ethan saw a boat similar to this one in the book and immediately began to talk Fulton into making one with him.  Thankfully we had an empty OJ container on hand.  These 2 boys had a blast working on their boats.  Fulton especially took his task very seriously and spent a lot of time on his.  Then the best part was sailing the boats in our kitchen sink.

Now that we are homeschooling, I feel as though I barely have time to breathe.  Updating the blog just isn't as high on the priority list as say math, fixing lunch, or doing laundry.  I will spotlight the girls the next chance I get though.

It's nice to laugh while working! I love the pic of Hudson on the watermelon! That's darling! It's always thrills me when my kids get creative on their own! Good for Ethan and Fulton! Loved seeing your boys in action!

Great new pic of all of you!
If you weren't breathing, you'd be dead or at least on oxygen. God is our oxygen. Hang in there-break is coming.
I, too, love the Hudson pic w/the watermelon.
