What's Going Down

Extra! Extra!

Woman neglects her blog in favor of peace and quiet. Given that she's got five children, her pursuit for peace & quiet is fruitless.

Because it's finally October, the weather has started to cool to manageable temperatures. This means we can go out of our house for longer than the time it takes to get into our cars. Huzzah!

We have one particular tradition in our house that is highly protected. The post-church Sunday afternoon nap. If I don't get one, you really don't want to be around me on Sunday evening. On this past Sunday, I managed to get a decently long nap (longer than 20 minutes) and woke to the sounds of my children playing happily on the patio outside our bedroom. I wandered out there to check on them to find this:

 Libby, who was napping, but woke up, was gotten out of bed by her big sisters and strapped into this thing. When I found her she was just rocking back and forth and happy as can be. That is, until she saw me.
Breaks a momma's heart. And makes me giggle my fool head off.
 There... now that's more like it. Smiley girl. 7 months old now!
We took a walk as a family since the weather was so darned agreeable.
 Guess who potty trained this week?!?!?!!!!

 Love these little people.
Especially when they're full of happy noises.

Nice to have you back.

Pearl is the same way. When she sees me, she needs me, so sometimes I go out of my way to avoid her so she can enjoy some alone/sister time.

I am glad to know there are others out there who let there kids play outside after church. I have always felt quilty, but with three high active boys we would kill each other sitting in the house all day.

Sunday-afternoon-quiet-time is a must in our house, so we are counting down the days until we have morning church next year.
Lucas potty-trained… hooray!

Yay! I enjoyed the fun pictures! I wish we had a nice, quiet path to take walks on near us...that sounds lovely.
