crossing things off lists
going on day 3 (or has it been closer to 5?) of gray, cold, rainy weather
we leave on Saturday for Toronto for 3ish weeks.
and I am scattered, and grumpy, and impatient at everything and everyone.
seems like there are a million and one things to do and not nearly close to enough time to do it all.
there's a Canada Day party tomorrow, a wedding on Saturday and countless little things that *HAVE* to happen before we go.
But there are the little things too, the things that get lost in the shuffle.
wrestling and monster tag
dancing and silly tickle fights.
too much stuff, too much stress, too many thoughts and worries.
time needs to slow down
unfortunately i have not mastered that little trick yet...if you do, let me know!
but if i stop _______________ wont happen
but there is so much to do.
you'd think i'd listen.

might be a while before I'm blogging again. hoping to be able to post pics from the Canada Day party before we leave, but seriously? it's low on the list of things to get done, will try (you know, provided this rain stops and we can actually go and hang out with friends and eat and watch the kids run around with sparklers!) but no promises!

Here are some of the pictures from the night. They even gave the kids medals, which Anthony slept with around his neck last night, he wanted to wear it to school but I told him it would be safer at home (he has this habit of pulling things out of his backpack on the school bus and I was worried he would lose it)

Technically there is supposed to be a face in the picture, but I took this on the weekend and it screams *boys* at me. So I am entering it, despite the fact that you can't actually see their faces :)
Head on over to i heart faces to join in on the fun or see even more GREAT pictures.

Today was our church family picnic. There was:
what more could we possibly want?
Happy Father's Day to all the Dads out there! Hope your day was filled with laughter and love.

You, my monkey son, keep me busy.
(That bright red light keeps cathing your attention and you will do anything to try and reach it!)
You've done both, and seem to enjoy each! Sleepy boys go to bed. Thankfully you have yet to discover that you can climb out of the crib that confins you for sleep.

Sunday, I spent much of the day (17 hours) in bed. I was SO not feeling well, and SO thankful that Troy was home to do everything! I did however, manage to drag myself out of bed long enough to take some pictures and enjoy a little of the WONDERFUL weather that graced us on Sunday. It was beautiful. (And today is more of the same!)
May your week be filled with lazy moments and sunny skies!
I took this picture of my daughter, this afternoon in our backyard.
It has FINALLY been warm enough here to pull the sprinkler out. If only I knew what she was thinking when I took it!

There are days when I am SURE your main goal in life is to see how close you can push me to the edge without actually sending me over, days when I am ready to string you up by your toes.
