It's been a busy week. Don't know how it all gets done!

We're having a wedding here next month, so i figured i better weed around the barns! I haven't done that at all this summer. It's just not priority. So it took me 4 days, but it's now done. We get this horrible stuff called Bermuda grass that invades my beds. It spreads under the ground and quickly.

We found someone to live in our apartment. She's moving in on Labor Day. We're excited to have her here. She's a missionary in Haiti and is back for a time, not sure how long. So we're doing a few things to the apartment before she moves in. I warned her the boys will get attached. Ben's already said "i love you" and he's only met her once!

Rod's lower back and neck are in bad shape right now. He's very good at managing his pain, he doesn't complain. But i know it's bad. He has a history of back problems and surgeries, but hopefully this will come and go, like it usually does.

Life is never boring with little boys. I don't know how many times I've looked at them and said "How did you break that??" "Where did you find that??" Or in a recent circumstance "How did you kill that?" (ask me later if you want details on that one). And i still haven't figured out just what is so funny about boogies and poop. It's a mystery i tell you. With that said, i always wanted boys and i wouldn't have it any other way. We are very grateful for 2 dedicated Grandmas who help out on a regular basis. Rod and i said we probably wouldn't have had a 4th child if it wasn't for them, just knowing they will help when needed and give us breaks. I really believe that's true. So, THANK YOU ladies!

Clay turned 4 months old this week! wow. He eats solid food like a champ, i can hardly believe how easy it is compared to the twins. I don't even wear a bib on him, he just woofs it right down. applesauce, banana, green beans, and rice cereal. We're not really on a schedule with it, i just give it to him when i have time or when i feel like it. (I'm a pediatrician's dream come true in more ways than one :) He's always moving around so i really haven't gotten any pictures lately that aren't blurry. But here's a recent one. Adam let him borrow George for a little.

It was nice to sit down and reflect a bit on the week. Now i have someone that needs tended to in the bathroom.

Happy weekend

I like that last picture! How cute! Are the boys Curious George fans? Kelsey is loving him right now.
