August 2, 2008

I have a cold and my throat feels yucky. I thought Nick was having allergy problems but, turns out, he caught a cold, probably from church last Sunday, and now I have it too and the dad's throat is not feeling too great either. So, not much going on around here today, other than just trying to get some rest and trying to have more patience than I feel like having.

For lack of anything else to say, here are some pictures for your entertainment:).

Playing 'train'.

Ben loves 'driving' and constantly asks to go back to our friends' house to drive the car.

The boys had a very fun time pretending that their stickers were bandaids and they were hurt. They kept coming to tell me 'I hurt mommy', in this little, pitiful voice.

The dad was getting ready to go out for his early morning bike ride, before it got too hot. They each have one of his bike shoes on and they are trying to tie a bow.

Here we are painting. We all really enjoyed this and I'm sure we will do it more often, now that we have some paints and paintbrushes. I especially enjoyed this and would really like to take some art classes someday. I have never taken an art class in my life but I just have this feeling that there is some sort of art person locked up inside me:).

Here is my finished painting. I think it would have turned out better if I had not been sharing paints with a 2 year old. The boys kept mixing the colors so I would go to get a nice bright orange and end up with brown.

My husband said he thought we should frame this picture and hang it in the boys' bedroom. I asked him if he was making fun of me but he said he really meant it, he thought it was good. Makes me want to try again with my own set of paints:).
