Little Tidbits

As my kids get older, it seems like there isn’t as much news. Maybe because I’m in the throes of the day-to-day, maybe because they don’t say as many cute-little-kid-things. Regardless, there isn’t a lot of news about Addy and Kate to share. Little tidbits: Addy is getting braces on Monday. Both girls took swim lessons in June and were invited to be part of the Minot Swim Club, starting in November. Both girls are finished with school for the schoolyear and can’t wait to start up again. Both girls continue to
be complete opposites yet play together nicely, most of the time.

Whereas nothing much changes with the girls…there is lots to report on Henry. He continues to charm and amuse both our household and the neighbors. They love to see him streaking through the yard in only his underwear, streaking through the yard with a batman cape, or just streaking through the yard. I’m glad we have such nice neighbors.
Recently I was reading my Bible in the morning when Henry got up. I started to read aloud to him and he interrupted me after a few minutes to say, “Mommy, remember that story about Jesus going into a duck?” I say, “you mean Jonah getting swallowed by the whale?” and he says, “Yeah. That’s my favorite story.”
To completely change the subject, I still won’t get a pet. I just really don’t want the hassle. I also don’t want an animal in the house for our 8 months of winter. Not really sure it’s fair to the animal, anyway. So the other day the kids are talking and Addy says, “When I grow up, I’m going to get a cat.” Kate says, “When I grow up, I’m going to get a dog.” Henry says, “When I grow up, I’m going to get a computer phone.”….because texting is infinitely less maintenance than a pet. In the interim, our lovely neighbors let our kids walk their dogs and the kids love it. I’m not sure the dogs are happy with the arrangement, but they’re dogs and…well…I’ll let you finish the sentence.

For those of you who say you never see me featured on this blog…here goes. Not my favorite photo of me, but here you go.
