Wyatt: (in the grocery store with the mission of getting some cold medicine) Mom, can you get me some medicine to help keep my boogers in?
Brendan: (Tonight. He didn't know where I was. Crying.) I was lost in the house!!!!!!
(Later. In bed. After his scare. Calmly talking to himself. Big sigh.) Okay. I'm a little scared. But I know that God's with me.
One little boy OBSESSED with saving the world from bad guys, dinosaurs and monsters... What could he be hiding?
Aaaah. His super identity. Of course.
And this little mama bird. Had to post this picture I caught of her sitting on her nest. She's pretty camouflaged in there. Look on the left hand side of the picture.

I'm excited to have my vegetables planted. Rand is excited for his little creation....
I went grocery shopping while Rand was mowing yesterday, and came home to this:
That's right, Rand mowed a baseball diamond into our backyard. Yes, he's pumped. And yes, you remember correctly, there are 6 Little League ball fields right across the street. But they aren't in our backyard...and this time of year, the ones across the street are almost always in use. So. Now we have our own. Rand suggested we plant corn in the outfield. See where his mind is going?? Our very own Field of Dreams. There are plans for more creative mowing to include a chipping green for golf practice in the back part of the yard, as well as extending the ball field a tad to be able to accommodate a couple soccer goals. I guess this is life with boys, right?
At least I got a little patch for myself and hopefully it will provide at least a few fresh grown veggies of our own.
Amazingly, I've managed to squeeze in peas, cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, carrots and green beans. There's room for expansion, but I may not want to spend any more time ripping out grass and turning all that dirt by hand. This was big enough!
Yesterday (and today for that matter) felt like full blown summer. We spent all day outside, working and playing. The warm weather has caused the trees to explode with leaves...literally overnight in some cases. After a long, cold, gray winter, all this color and warmth is causing a very welcomed sensory overload.
--Forgot to mention....Remember Rand's eye??? Click here for a reminder. Well, this morning Rand woke up with that horrible eye infection again. We think it was triggered by too much sun and allergies. (We're pretty sure a sunburn triggered it last year, too) Yuck! It's really bad. He is taking the anti-viral pills that he still has left over from last time, but it looks like we'll be going back to the doc. or at least getting more medication from the doc. in AZ. Shades are drawn, sunglasses on...just like last time. :( Pray this heals up quickly. It literally took months to heal last year when he had this. (I'd post a pic, but seriously, it's pretty sick.)
