I thought the other blog template was in need of a change along with spring and I decided to go with the boring, plain old white because they nothing I post will clash with the background. If this blog is a long term thing, I would eventually like to design my own template- but that's a lot of work and takes brain powere, of which I am limited.
Today Lori walked to our house and the boys played outside for awhile. It was great to be out in the warm, spring air with a friend. Lovely. After lunch I brought Kayla to meet the Dennys near the turnpike because they are all going to Canada to do a concert this weekend. Kayl (not a typo, that is my nickname for her) was all twitter pated and smiles to see 'Siah. Such is the life of a young lady in love. I have attempted to post a video of her singing at their last concert, but I think my computer doesn't like the idea. I suppose I shall keep trying! After dropping Kayla off, I enjoyed my ride back home- with the windows rolled down and the music turned up! I love the feeling of sandals and capris and it is sooooo exciting to be able to wear both for the next couple of days. The rest of the afternoon was spent finishing my book- yes, about Jane Austen- on the porch, soaking up the sun and "freckling." Eli asked me where freckles came from and I told him that they were kisses from God. I know it's not theologically sound, but it sounded nice and he didn't ask anymore questions- usually he asks "why" or "how," but he didn't. He just smiled. He makes me smile a lot. Yesterday, when I was giving the three smith boys a bath something else made me smile. I took Andrew out of the tub to get him dressed in the other room and I hear: "It fell in the toilet! It fell in the toilet!" I speeded up the dressing of Andrew and stumbled back into the bathroom only to find the barely used bar of soap in the toilet. I wasn't going to fish that out because there were other elements in the toilet along with it, so I flushed the toilet, not thinking (duh!) that the soap would go down too. Thankfully it didn't clog up the toilet and after awhile it will disintegrate. After the initial shock, I just laughed. It was pretty funny!
The above picture is a riot! As a long shot, you can't really see, but click on the picture and then look at Adam's (in the red) face. It's hilarious- we all were sitting around the picture trying to figure out how to make the face, but we can't!!!
