Mini Post Monday - The Lame Edition

We are finally well, but struggling to catch up with life, so I think this will be a rather lame excuse for a Mini Post.  Be that as it may, here goes nothing!

  • That was the nastiest virus I think I have ever had.  No one in our family escaped uneffected, and I am very glad it is over.  I am also thankful that Jerry and I weren't sick at the same time!  He did such a good job of holding down the fort while I holed up in our room, hiding from the kids, while I was sick! 
  • I just love this picture of Ethan and Andrew playing together.  They are really starting to form a neat bond as they now enjoy each other's company and are able to play things they both enjoy!
  • The boy's bathroom is finished except for a few details.  They are now using it for showers, teeth brushing, and all other normal bathroom functions.  I still need to find a trash can, a mirror, a shower curtain I like, and a towel bar.  Other than that, it is finished!  Woo-Hoo.  Of course, I don't have a picture since this is the "lame edition" and all.
  • T-Ball season has officially started.  Aaron has had two practices so far and he just loves it.  Of course, I don't have a picture...I did take the camera to the first practice with me, but I was still a bit sick (as was Andrew) and I was lucky just to make it home with all my children in tow.  Ethan has had two practices scheduled, but both have been rained out.  I really hope he gets to practice some before his first game!
  • Aaron had his first all-day Cub-O-Ree this last Saturday.  I just love Cub Scouts.  They are so family friendly, emphasize good values, and teach the boys great skills.  Aaron had so much fun.  Ethan was able to do a lot of the activities with Aaron's pack, too.  Andrew, Jerry, and I were just along for the ride!  I hope to put up more pictures from this soon.
This is part of Aaron's Tiger Pack (plus Ethan) piled up on top of their Cub Master!  It's a really great group of boys.

Ahhhh, I love the pictures! I totally wish they had something like boy scouts for girls. Girl scouts are just not the same. I can't wait to see pictures of the bathroom and of T-ball! And I'm so glad you're all on the mend. I've been looking around my house and getting itchy to make sure it's nice and clean for when you come.

What's with the asteriks on your book list?

Johanna said...

I was going to explain that. In fact, I think I'll add that to the post I have to go up today... They are the books that qualify for the challenge I gave myself to read more books of literary worth. They are either non-fiction (which is just hard for me to get into), Newberry award winning children's books, or classic literature that is on some reading lists I printed off from some grad school's Master's in English degree "you-should-be-familiar-with-these-works" list. You can see that I still overwhelmingly read the stuff I love - historical Christian fiction, or Christian romance, or Christian mystery... But hey, at least I am averaging 5 books a month so far this year. That's good, right?
