What we've been up to

The kids went back to school today and it was nice to get my house (mostly) back into shape but I have seen some benefits to having them home and thinking summer might not be something to dread afterall...We had our St Patricks day cupcake and lemonade stand and it was quite a success- somehow they ended up making $25 to share between the 5 kids who worked it. (thanks Papa) We got a bit of a garden started too, thanks to my wonderful mom for getting my 2 grow boxes ready. I was so intimidated to get started but now I wonder why, it's not hard. The plants we put in are growing great but only a couple of the seeds sprouted, I am going to blame it on my kids somehow... I can't wait to start getting some tomatoes and peppers!My [big huge] little baby just keeps growing up and it's not fair! He gets bigger every day and it's so fun to see him doing new things but I wish we could just slow things down and keep him a baby a little longer. My favorite is his "uh-ooooooohhhhh." He says it slow and low every time he drops something, or thinks about dropping something, it cracks me up.
