Life has been CRAZY at our house (do all my posts begin with that same sentence?). Everyone has been sick again, and I feel like I have not accomplished anything. When I post on my blog, I feel like I accomplished something so that is why I am sitting here Sunday night writing about my family life.
The other day, Randy came home from school and told the boys that the mountain man had come to visit his class so he was going to tell them about the mountain man's visit. Mark looked at Randy and said, "How little was this mountain man?" I laughed so hard I almost cried. Maybe Mark thinks mountain men are dwarves from Lord of the Rings, but Randy explained he was a regular man who lived in the mountains and shared his experiences and stories with people.
Dax was diagnosed with Strep Throat on Monday. This kid can't catch a break, but he is doing great after a week on antibiotics. He had some pretty scary fevers (some reaching 105.7), so I am glad Dax is finally smiling again. Tonight when I tucked him into bed, he told me I was a great mom. That made my whole day!
Oh, Seth! He had all the horrible sickness that Dax had, but no antibiotics to help. Seth has had a nasty cough, runny nose, and has been sad all week. Today was the first day he seemed like himself again. Dax put these glasses on Seth and it helped make everyone in our family smile. Seth weighs 21 pounds now. Randy and I are going to have to start seeing a chiropractor from carrying him around. I hope he learns to crawl soon. What 3rd time mom says that?
This bald eagle was in the tree next to our house yesterday morning. I took this picture out my kitchen window. Randy missed seeing it, but the boys and I watched him for about an hour. Seeing this bald eagle helped us birders make it through a long Saturday!
