Notable points of interest:
The boys got out their air soft guns and the first thing they shot was their youngest brother's backside. Ouch.
The family made a fairly good attempt at a healthier lifestyle by planting. Premature planting, most likely.
The dad began the work of opening the pool; the water is 64 degrees. At this rate, it will be 27 years before the pool is warm enough for the mother to put her toe in.
Boy #2's trombone arrived. He can make a sound with it, and although his parents think this first year of band will be a long one, they never dreamed that a child who struggled with oral motor apraxia would one day be able to blow enough air into an intrument to make a sound. Interpretation: to the neighbors we do apologize, but to us, it was a sound of triumph.
The mother of the family traded bagel slicing duty for nursery duty on Sunday. She actually prefers the bagels.
The daughter and oldest son were overjoyed when their mother and father offered them the chance to go to Kentucky this summer to spend time with their grandparents. How much more thrilled they will be when they learn their Texas cousins will be there, too.
And lastly, asthma continues to taunt this boy and his parents' efforts at taming it.
And now to enjoy the last of the long week-end.
