(I do not know why I have started the habit of using all these dots .... but I have so I hope I don't annoy anyone out there with them.)
Yesterday we went to visit Travis at his new home store. They transferred him to a store that is not open 24 hours!!! It's a really nice store with really nice people. I really love the Walgreens company so far. Well, since Travis got "paid up" as Connor said, I told them I would buy them a treat. They each got a sell inflating whoopee cushion.
Looks just like the yellow one. Yep, I wish you could have heard them. Laughing so hard tear were rolling down their faces. Of course, after about 6 hours of CONTINUOUS use, they started to tear and the fart sounds are weak, but they really had a spectacular time with those things. They were kinda pricey, so I was bummed that they didn't hold up better. The reason they are so into whoopee cushions is because of this chick...
Don't ask. You can go to http://respectthepouch.com/ if you really wanna know. It's a Capri Sun thing. We don't even have cable, but they saw the commercials and we have internet...that's all it took.
Anyway...to finish off my rather long and rambling post, here is a picture I took of my children because I love them so much...
Wait...here's another...just because. I tried to be clever and put them on different steps, but I'm not a photographer and they really wanted to leave to go buy their little fart bags, so...
Oh, and ps...Little Lizbet is 90% ready to crawl. She's almost got it. She's 6 month old! Crawling?! Isn't that kinda sad? I'm crying again. I need to go read me some HP.

Okay. I can not believe that it is August! And it's almost the middle of August even! Hello! My little baby girl is 6 MONTHS old!! Time...you are not my friend these days. So, the last few days I have been reorganizing my apartment. Isn't that what most women need to do once in a while. Move stuff around. I'm not as crazy as Shauna who not only moves things around, but strips them all and paints them! But, I have been reworking our Education areas. We totally outgrew our little laundry room classroom and have been working in the living room. So, I installed some shelves and moved the desk and did a bunch of stuff like that. It feels good to move stuff around cause then you are forced to clean certain areas that otherwise wouldn't be touched. I'll post photos after it's all done.
Speaking of education...I have also been planning school. Only we are going to try not to call it school. Thomas Jefferson Ed people...at least the people that I have interacted with recently (I need to re-read that book!) call it Home Education. Not Home Schooling. I like the sound of that, and my kids seem to think that it sounds cool too...so, I have been planning this years education. I'm beginning to feel more like I know what I'm doing, but at the same time having a panic attack cause the boys are getting older and also Connor is thrown into the mix this year. BUT...I'll be okay. Like my dad ALWAYS used to ask me...how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time. Got it! (o:
It's been some weird times lately. The heat threw us all off. Then, Travis worked his first week of over night shifts. They do a week every 5 weeks, I believe. He left home at midnight and returned home at 9am. Then, he locked himself in the bedroom until 7pm and slept. Seven days he did this. Then, he was given 4 days off to try and recover. That's what he did all weekend. Tried to get his head back on straight. So, it's been a strange the past couple of weeks. (but, let me say...over night shift or not....he LOVES working at Walgreens!!!) So, I have lots more to say but not the energy, nor the time to say it, so here are a few pictures because everyone loves pictures!
Little Miss is now sleeping part time in her new crib. She sleeps in it for a couple of hours...wakes up...wants to be held for an hour or so...then goes back in her crib. Repeat. It makes for a long night, but she'll come around eventually and all will be well. (they all did) I'm tired, but I remind myself that she is my last and what is a few months of sleepiness in my long lifetime. It's so worth it when you see this cute little face.
