And......I'm back. Closer to my normal self since Caroline is making some improvements. Sorry for my absence, but it's hard for me to write on the blog when our world is off balance.
So, let's get back to business with some Scoop.
Last week, my friend Jillian and I took the kids to the Overland Park Arboretum and Botanical Gardens for a walk and picnic.
She spotted the first sign of Spring! So proud of you, Jillian.
Jack found a train. Shocker.
We had 5 kids total present and lost a few for a while. No worries.
Ainsley and Brynn took a ride in the Bumbleride. I love how kids are always so fascinated with other strollers.
We studied the Kansas fossil seabeds. Yep. There's more than sunflowers and wheat fields here.
An opossum (did I say that right?) showed up behind our house the other day.
The boys were fascinated.
And, he stuck to the stereotype and played dead for us! Awesome. Well.....for a while there, I was brainstorming how to proceed with an animal burial, but he got up soon enough. So, after that it was indeed, awesome.
Lainey is sporting the French braid nowadays. See? All those years of cheerleading and slumber parties paid off.
And, Internet, I blame you for the next few months of hell I will endure due to us growing out Lainey's bangs. You think it's tough growing yours? Try tolerating a toddler doing so and her refusing to pin her hair back.
On another note, why does spell check insist I capitalize "internet"? Does this have something to do with Al Gore?
Finally, here is a video of a monster train track I built with Jack. You may want to refrain from using the volume if you're sensitive to fingernails being scraped on a chalkboard.
That's about what my voice sounds like. WHEN WILL I DROP THE TEXAS TWANG?
Hope you have a good week, peeps. Keep praying for my sis!
