So now that's done, I have a few random pictures to share. This one I took on a recent Saturday dinner at the park. The evening was so lovely, I had to try to capture it.
We may have found America's Top Model!
He's got the smoldering eyes, the GQ style, the long eyelashes.....
He's just missing the maturity.
Speaking of maturity, what kind of family can't get ready for church without hijinks like this? My husband is actually responsible for dressing him up in this. An entire load of laundry was ruined by a little someone who left a crayon in their pocket. This shirt still had the tags on. (sniff, sniff) Anywho, this certain 12 year old was anxious to show off the effects of what my little brother called 'pubeter'. The testosterone is flowing, his muscles are growing, he flexes, and Riiipppp- off falls the shirt.
Hoowee! This is a self-professed nerd who has an aversion to all things sports.And he's 12. His brothers are shaking in both fear and anticipation. They want muscles like that too!
On the construction front, the bathroom's coming right along.
My luscious vanity has arrived, and the little one has already put a ding in it.

With the weather warming up, the bigger boys have been playing outside more. They've invented an ingenious game on the rope swing. It's called "You hold on and I'll swing you around. When you fall to the ground, I win." If that isn't an injury waiting to happen, I don't know what is!

What a buffed little dude! He's just getting so grown up. By the way, did you try mayonnaise on your vanity ding? It works great for scratches in wood.

Sorry! I can't find your e-mail and your phone is busy so I'm using this method which I know will be productive...
Guess who I just got an e-mail from?????????

Jer!!!! He's doing well! Ha! What do you know.
I'll comment about your blog later I promise. I have to go...just dying to tell you...

Jenn said...

Okay, time for proper commenting. Whoa. I cannot believe your twelve year old. Oh my. You better watch out for more than one reason (that rope swing game being in the top ten).

I bet you're just quivering in your boots waiting for the double D's--Dating and driving!! But then again, I know you have a good memory...

Okay, I see we have very similar lives. I enjoyed the tag bit. One word, very clever - you made it extra clever. And 12 year olds - this is what my little pile of hormones is doing lately. He got some "Under Armor" for baseball. He wears the shirt all the time, to show off his stuff I suppose. I have warned him about being sure that it gets washed frequently. Looking cool while smelling foul - not likely to be extremely attractive. I took a photo of him on Sunday and about died. When I looked at the screen I saw the young man he purports to be rather than the little boy I'm accustomed to seeing in my mind. Comfort level took a nose dive. I'll get over it. Soon I hope.

I thought you joking at first when you told me you would put that picture of me on your blog

That is one ridiculously large tree- perfect for a rope swing!!!

Nice to meet you!
