 He did every obstacle...all 22 of them.
Electric shocks, ice bath and all that.  "that was fun."

officially summer

 Summer is here, it's official...because my kids come home covered in mud at least 5 times a week!  Sloane just pops in for a I ask her to wash her hands before eating?  Only if we're sitting down at the table.  A little dirt is good for you.

kickin it old school

One day we went back to 1771.  Visiting Claude Moore Colonial farm on a weekday morning is so much fun.  Talking with the family who runs this working farm as if it actually is 1771- they work with garden tools in their bonnets and skirts.

Bigs help littles

 One cute thing is that most mornings I strew around new library books and the big kids still can't resist picking them up.  They always invite the littles to listen to a story because they think of these books as being for the littles- because they are onto chapter books and have been for ages.  Traditional idea of a family breakfast?- gather round the table for eggs and bacon it is not, but it's still cute.  And sometimes there's rice milk available that no one really wants.
Billie is such a cutie, reading to Cort and his friend this morning while I sleep in.  Having a 12 year old around is really pretty cool.

Jack's new guitar

 Check it out!  Jackson wants to learn guitar, being the indulgent-parent-products of our generation that we are, we went to craigslist and ran right out to buy him one on a saturday morning.  He's got hair over his eyes, he's reluctant to shower, he's totally uninterested in anything girls have to say and he's rather sensitive and moody.  Also, he had a role in a major motion picture.  Does it get any more heartbreaker than this? 

Only if you add at guitar and a dimple to it.
