Knocked out!

( no pictures)

Two weeks ago we were all playing keep-away in the backyard. Well not Silas. He was playing with toys and randomly laughing at us!
Mike and Rowan both went for the ball and mike ends up landing on Rowan. Mostly on his head!! It was quite amusing but of course Rowan is crying and mike felt awful. When Rowan gets up his mouth is all bloody. I knew his very loose tooth had been knocked out but he was pretty freaked out. He had a nice scrap under his eye too. We searched for the tooth but couldn't find it. Luckily the tooth dairy seemed happy with a nice letter explaining what had happened. She sure is an understanding lady!

Happy Birthday To Me!!

Yesterday was my birthday! I was hoping for a nice stress free day. No yelling at kids, no kids fighting... Yeah, pretty high hopes! It wasn't quite THAT perfect but was a nice day. Rowan went to a safety camp with a friend so that helped with the quiet a bit ;)

Mike took the day off and we ran errands- hello Target! And went out for Chinese good with Eli and Silas. Eli was so excited to go out! He thanked us like a million times for taking him for Chinese food! Eli and Silas both loved the egg drop soup! And i got myself a few things at Target. We even got me a fancy coffee drink ( i never buy those thibgs cause they are so wxpensive! and i felt like crap after i drank it...)
Of course once Rowan got home they fought nonstop :/ but they did help mike make me a cake. Mike made dinner too. Sooo good!

2 Down

The big boys have now been home for 2 full weeks. I think we're doing pretty good so far. Next week swimming lessons and camp start and the week after that is my online class, then things really get fun. And by fun I mean stressful :/

The boys are doing great with their chores and even Eli can unload the dishwasher alone now! Yeah! They've been fighting a little less too. Sometimes....

We met some friends at Homer Lake this week and that was a lot of fun! We'll probably hang out there a lot this summer. Rowan's been really helpful with Silas, I can even shower without having to watch him! Woohoo!!

We are starting to get strawberries from the garden! And Silas has actually taken a few bites without gagging!
