These days..

 I've learned how to get pics from my phone to the computer. So for those of you NOT on's some pictures of life as we know it: June changing into outfit number 4 of the day, the kids being taught a drill at the Tredegar Iron Works Museum ... 

After school mess. We eat on this same table-the transition can be overwhelming.

Dayne and a Civil War soldier.

June's exciting new feat: the monkey bars!!

Kids learn a "drill" at Civil War and Emancipation Day in Richmond.

Spring break/sprinklers!

After 2 days straight of puzzles..

Geof. the HOT redneck doing yard work.

A pregnant Lizzie (yes, we're irresponsible pet owners)

 Learning how to do some fun braids to Dayne's hair (she didn't like this was pulled out and in a messy pony-tail by mid-morning, I'm sure),

 Movie time with cousin Christian (my cousin Ivy's oldest. They came down for a short visit this past weekend.

 Geof. and the kids before their school's 5K PTA fundraiser. Cole and Geof. ran that thing so fast. We couldn't believe that Cole came running through the finish line not even 5 minutes past Geof. and Geof. told me that he pushed himself hard the entire race! Cole came in first for his grade. Dayne ran the 1 mile fun run and has a great stride and zipped past the gathered cheering crowd on each lap, but chose to walk the rest of the way.  :)  

 Geof. and Dayne, half-way through our nightly reading of "James and the Giant Peach".  Those two have something special. 
Dayne's top-knot. I love it. She does not.
Cole got a bow and arrow. This is him mid-yell at  June to, "MOVE!". Don't worry, she was far from danger. He's cautious.

Cole MUST come to AK and bring his bow and arrow with him, Owen wants one badly. Geof.s work clothes are impressive to be sure ;0). Your family is so good looking! and you are always doing such fun things, nice job super speedy running too!

Had to laugh at the dining room table! I have this thing about buying desks for all my kids rooms so that they will have somewhere to do homework....unfortunately that "somewhere" ends up being in the middle of my family room floor or on the coffee table! Meanwhile the desks are jammed full of all their treasures (junk) upstairs! I am afraid if I were you we would probably end up sitting on the kitchen floor eating before I could get the table cleaned off!
