The boys have a ton of fun playing outside.
Which is good.
Keeps Mama's house a little cleaner inside.
But this isn't about me.
Oh, who am I kidding.

Lucy and Isaiah adore each other.
Adore.
But Lucy-bug does get waves of jealously here and there.
We deal with it.
She'll be just fine.


Gotta love gender-non-friendly hand-me-downs.
The pink and lavender bike doesn't hurt this manly man's pride one bit.


When I handed Hao Hao the basketball...he completely LIT UP.
You'd thought I had given him the moon.


This child is all smiles, almost all the time.
He is such a delight!
Discovering all the modes of transportation...


Taking turns (not).

Fine.
You go first.
I'll help you.

Happy, happy.

And after a day of doing nothing but playing yesterday...
I really need to focus on my real job.

Bills are piling up.
Laundry is piling up.
Dust is piling up.
Kids are piling up.

I hope to give all my piles my full attention today.

I love reading about their adjustment!
Hope your piles are under control soon...do you want me to tell you the truth about this? LOL

I'm praying your laundry continues to pile up inside, because that means you're busy playing outside. Nope, my prayer doesn't have ONE thing to do with the joy I would have over YOU having a laundry pile.

But, Lori. Get those bills paid, ok?

Wonderful update Lori! don't worry about the piles ... well the live ones you should worry about ... but the ones that can't move themselves ... don't worry about those!
