get HIM

to wear his own pajamas.

It's a race to Lucy's nightgown drawer each evening after they take their baths. You can see Eli's determination to get there first. All attempts at trying to get him to put on his own PJ's have been ditched.

(All these photos were taken with an iPad. The resolution is somewhat disappointing).

2nd Tooth

Lucy lost her second tooth today, appropriately while eating a hamburger. She told me to write this note for The Fairy, because she has magical powers. Hopefully, the 2 bucks will suffice??? 1 dollar bill...and 4 quarters...wishful thinking on my part, but The Tooth Fairy does not bring live animals.

As I was putting Lucy to bed, she asked me if I was in charge of the whole house. When I asked her if she thought I was, she said yes. I then asked her why, and she told me it's because I boss everyone around all the time. I told her that someone needed to tell everyone what to do, and she agreed.

Summer, Part 1

It's been a hot summer, so far, and for the most part everyone is behaving themselves. Lots of time at the pool with a little summer camp mixed in.  It's barely the middle of June and we've already harvested a few veggies.
