Today I mowed the lawn. We have nine acres, but fortunately only about two or three of the acres need mowing. I have a wagon that hooks to the riding mower where I can pull the kids behind while I mow. I had two kids in the cart and one on my lap. Multitasking for the win! Afterwards, I installed new sconces on our front porch. They were always a little wonky, but one quit working and the other fell off during an especially violent storm we had several weeks ago.
Everyone is sick :( My kids very rarely get sick, but my daughter has pink eye, my son as an ear infection, and my other son is teething. And their parents are very, very tired.
We had quite the storm whip through here and it blew a number of our shingles off. Our roof started leaking, and I explained to my daughter that someone was going to come install a new roof. After hearing this, she exclaimed: Daddy! It will be so fun to see the sky and stars while we are inside! I quickly realized that instead of simply replacing the shingles, she thought they were going to take off the ceiling as well!
Today we took the kids to their first Kid’s Workshop at the Home Depot. It was a lot of fun! Yay For Home Depot My kids both really enjoyed it, especially my daughter. This month’s craft was to build a birdhouse that hangs on the window. They can’t wait until next month :)
Painting Daddy’s Truck The other day, the kids were playing outside in the mud. When they came back in and we asked if they had fun, they happily exclaimed: Yes! We painted Daddy’s truck! How can you get mad at that face? I went outside and they had used mud to finger paint all over the truck. I think it is fantastic.
