I have been loving the weather here lately. The temperatures are finally bearable, and I just want to be outside! Brandon and I have been having little adventures during the day while the girls are gone, but you’ll read all about that in my Project 365 update! (You knew I was going to work that in there somehow right? )
Wednesday was quiet around here. The kids had a rather laid back day which is always good. Lately my house resembles the WWE because when they get in arguments they tend to fight. I’m not kidding, I’ve actually had to literally PULL them apart. I hope it’s something they grow out of quickly!
Jordan gets the picture of the day for Wednesday. She was sitting quietly in front of the TV, but she wasn’t watching TV. She was drawing on her magnetic board. My grandma bought them for the kids last year and they haven’t put them down yet.
My house was shaking like a leaf on Thursday from the construction going on behind us. They are putting in a new part of our subdivision and the noise was driving me crazy. I figured since there was no way I could get peace, that Brandon and I should walk back there to see what was going on. I put him in his wagon, and off we went. We walked about 30 minutes to get there, then we watched the big trucks building the new road. Brandon was thrilled! One of the trucks even honked the horn at him. On the way home we were checking out all of the wildflowers blooming on the side of the road. There must’ve been at least ten different types! I snapped a photo of these “lellow” ones that Brandon pointed out.
We went to the library for story time on Friday, but Brandon got really shy so we had to leave early. I decided to take him to the park because it was such a beautiful day. We played for about an hour before we had to leave to go home for nap time. He did not want to leave. I had to pick him up to get him to the car and he was kicking and screaming. I hate that because then everyone looks at you like you’re killing the kid! He is lucky he’s cute. Here he is on his favorite part of the play set. (The “birate” ship.) *Note his tongue hanging out while he concentrated. He gets that from me. LOL
Our leaves don’t change much here in the Fall. I wish they did. I get envious when I see some of my friends’ beautiful photos of Fall foliage. So when I was in the backyard on Saturday, and saw this bit of red on a tree over my back fence, I decided that it was “my” bit of Fall. So I had to take a picture. Hey… you take it where you can get it right?
Ronnie went to the race track with his friend Chuck on Sunday. They had an absolute ball racing the cars and having “man time”. LOL He came back happy, and really… that’s all that matters. He took this picture of his friend’s car and his car side by side, and that became the photo of the day even though I wasn’t there to take it.
Today Brandon and I spent the morning at the doctor’s office. I had some high liver levels on my last blood test, and they wanted to repeat them. Bubs was so patient while we saw the doctor, but when he saw them coming at me with the needle to draw my blood he totally freaked out and cried. I felt so bad. The tech even tried to give him a little car so he’d calm down, but it didn’t work. Hopefully these results will come out okay and I won’t have to go back for a while! Today’s photo is the exterior of the building that my primary doctor works in.
