...the behinder I get." Amish proverb
That pretty much sums life up for me right now. We are living in our rental home and trying to move things over to the new house. There is no grass yet at the new house, so the kids inevitably end up in the dirt (ie: filthy from head to toe). I try to keep them outside so they don't track in. You can imagine how well that goes.
Last night we got an email saying that the owners of our rental had changed their plans. They are no longer planning to move back into the house, but decided to put it on the market. They listed it yesterday. Nice. They were 'thoughtful' enough to say that showings wouldn't start until the end of this week.
Just shoot me now!
There are boxes everywhere. I have taken most of the pictures off the walls. Let's just say it doesn't exactly look like the cover of Better Homes and G*rdens in here.
Between running to the house and running to the doctor with kids who are STILL coming down with strep, I am meeting myself coming and going!
After a stressful weekend, I decided that the kids needed a break from my grumpiness, so I took them to the lake. We had fun, although the water was too frigid to play in. They love to throw rocks and sticks, make leaf boats and
accidentally splash the girls.
I had hopes of getting all the photos edited but yeah....that isn't going to happen. I know it's totally uncool for photographers to share unedited photos but alas, I do not have time to edit all of these.
Ohhh yeah....my rock made a big splash!
Katie...look at mommy for a minute so I can capture your cuteness.
Let's walk to the other side of the lake. (Jillian was home from school with strep, which is why she went with us.)
"Ohhh, mom...wook at dat cool twee!"
"I donna beat you, Zoey!"
"But I have a bigger wock, Dakie."
Jake and Zoey spent nearly the whole time running back and forth with rocks to chuck into the water. They weren't satisfied with pebbles. They had to be ROCKS.
These two have a special bond of being from the same orphanage and sometimes are the best of buds.
Miss Kate, ever serious, contemplates her next move.
