short and butchered

As I write this, james has wet his pants, jonathon has been exerting big brother authority over his brothers, jeff’s air is stcking up due to over use of mayo for styling gel and rachel is eatting a little early because she was so tired she couldn’t wait 15 moe minutes. But things are ok…really. Actually we just got back from a nice weekend away and rachel is making fabulous strides in her physical abilities. Alas my brain goes much faster than I can type one handed. So I’m changingto bullet point style here:
-Rachel is crawling and actually climbed two steps today!
She’s five months old.
- Jonathon just succeeded in fighting the screen door to the death with a new sword and the sword one leaving the door with no less than 10 fatal stab wounds. Arg!
-James has succeeded in scrubbing out his stnky underwear in the toilet without my knowledge until later- twice – he did this voluntarily, lest you think I made him do it.
-Jef throws five star temper tantrums and does it so often, if you are interested in seeing one, feel free to stop by anytime, your chances are good that one will be in session.
-we went to the children’s museum in portsmouth and it was a great success aside from standing outside for 30 min cause they were full to capacity. The kids were very miserable and I even let them scream right at the feet of the lady telling people when to go in. she told us after about 30 seconds that maybe we could stand right inside until it was our turn. Oh??? Thanks!!!
-we had a bonfire sat. night and discovered jonathon loves them-especially the throwing wood into the fire part.

Ok, that’s all for now hope this was slightly intelligible.

Rachel is CRAWLIING???!!?!? Is she some sort of freakish superchild, or have I really been away that long? (maybe it's some of both, minus the freakish part...)

And I'd just like to say that you are the greatest mom, and I think you should sell the royalties to your life, because I would like to see the movie.

Man, with all that going on, I'm surprised you have enough energy to even breathe! Maybe James is just getting his foot in the door for his lifes calling of being a cleaner or something!

and here's to big brothers being bossy! Here, here...

Mary, way to use your children to express how you feel...to that lady outside the museum, I mean. It's not quite so compelling to make them stop when they're doing you a service. You probably wished you could scream at her, but that would be socially unacceptable, so just let the kids do it, and everyone understands that kids "act out," so it's all right. Suddenly I wish I had lots of kids to scream for me! Of course, they never would when I don't want them to, because they'll be perfect like I was at that age. :-)

oh my word, that made me laugh out loud. Your kids are sooo funny. I wish you guys went to my church down here....than I'd get in on it more, but at least I can "share" ya'll's life through blogging:)
God bless! ya'll....
