4th of July Week in review.
I must say. I would love to blog more, time is just not on my side. So I must throw all the fun in to one post. We had a wonderful past 10 days or so. The kids have been enjoying summer and all the fun activities that go along with summer. Mylee loves to do tummy time but she tends to puke a bunch so for part of tummy time we put her over the boppy. So Now she does this. She has managed to push her self over the top of the boppy. She has really strong legs. We have fingered this out in the last week. We spent the evening of the 3rd of July at my parents house to celebrate the 4th. Because the 4th was on a Sunday we thought it was better to do our little family party on Saturday. Jim and the kids had fun playing ball and Jumping on the Tramp. Of course we made hand churned ice cream. I think this year Madison was the only kid who churned. The others were to busy playing ball and such. The boys were so excited to do fireworks they worked as a team to put the stand out on the grass. Poor Marcus knows all to well how hard that stand is. Latter on in the night When we was doing sparklers he ran right into it. And one week latter he still has quite a bump on his upper thigh. They all seemed to have a fun time. Mom even made them a fun treat to go with their homemade ice cream A true flag cake. they thought it was great. each slice was it's own flag. After the fun 4th of July party we learned how sentive Mylee's skin really is. We are now double rinsing all the wash. After she broke out in a fun itchy rash all over her face. I can say it is doing better. This is one of my favorite faces Mylee makes. Second to her smiling. She is concentrating very hard on something. Most of the time when she makes this face you better watch out as she is leaving you a present in her pants. And she does not always stay in the lines. Yes it is true. Sweet Mylee is smiling. We love to see her smile. She is even making a few sounds. She is turning into the fun stage of infantcy. When they laugh and smile. I love it. She melts my heart daily. Madison learned a hard lesson on Sunday. She really wanted to have a play date, but we don't do play dates on Sunday's. It is part of how we try to keep the sabbath day holy. She cried and cried for over a hour demanding to have her friend come over and play. When she stopped crying I found her on my chair asleep. I think part of why she cried so long is because she was so very tired. We have a weekly schedule that we try to keep. With a fun thing going on almost every day. On Monday's we take a picnic lunch to a different park every week. This week we went to Edgewater the kids had a blast throwing rocks in the Green River. All in all we had a wonderful week, with ups and downs. I keep trying to tell my self how wonderful life truly is. Some days are easier than others with 5 very active and different kids.
