Today was my day with the kids. We'll, Benny had preschool until 1:30. Ever have a day where the kids are not cooperative with what you want? This was it for me. Naps...not a chance. Cracking siblings on the head with a light saber...yep. Sucker punches/hits/tattle-tales...yep. Cleaning the bathroom floor and wall...yep (if you have boys, you know what I mean). It was a great day, topped with dinner with Jimmy and Amber. With their girl in tow, they braved our 3 kids. We were even treated with a concert from all 4 kids. There were 4 versions of a song or story being sung and recited at the same time. It was melody to our ears.

A highlight I had was to carve out 5 minutes to con the kids into posing for pictures. Here's the fruit of the labor.

Right now, these pictures really capture our kids' personalities. Benny is still funny, Everlie likes to pose with cute little goofy facial expressions, and Delaney is teething...with allergies...and always lets us know how she feels.

Today we are assembling a swing set in our back yard. Benny is excited and keeps asking when we are starting. I was up at 4:30 this morning, fully expecting him to come down with his boots on.
