Group photo

I took this quickly this morning and was surprised how well it turned out (4 of 5 are looking at the camera!).

I'm falling behind

My house work is getting so far behind I feel I may never catch up. Lately I just ignore it, but the clutter bothers me. However, I'd rather hold Hannah. She won't be this little forever. It is so hard to put such a precious little girl down, and house work is hard to do one-handed. I do have a sling and a wrap that I use at times. There are others who would be happy to hold her for me, but I am a bit selfish since I enjoy her so much. Since she is asleep in her crib right now I should get off the computer and go do some cleaning, laundry, cooking, or help Rueben with his algebra. I just need to decide where to start!?!

My firefighters

Last week we visited my sister, Becky, at the firestation where she works. She works at the front desk - not as a fire fighter. She took the kids around, showed them the fire trucks, and gave them fire hats. The next day the kids were up early, dressed in red, and went out early to play fire fighters.
They loaded the hose onto the fire truck (aka red wagon)at the fire the girl tended the hose at the truck, while
the boys put out the fire!
The job is done, and it's a good thing, because the wind picked up making the rest of the day bad for fires!
