I Got My Sun-On!

In the words of Simon and Garfunkel, "Hello darkness, my old friend." That's right people--I've got a tan and it feels good! We took a family trip to Galveston this weekend. For those of you who are unfamiliar with Galveston beaches, Zeke called it 'sand-mud', but it was the beach, regardless. Notice I didn't call it a family vacation; it was almost down-graded to a business trip. All you parents, you know what I'm talking about. "Let's dig." "Let's jump the waves." "Let's run to the shore." "Let's go to the pool." "Catch me as I jump in the pool." Abe and I were at the little monsters' beck and call.

Gaea, Majid, Soloman and Adam joined us one day. Snack attack!
A little family time on the Duck Tour.

Bedtime was relentless. The littlest one, who normally goes to bed at 8:00 every night, was the last one to sleep every night more than a few hours after her normal bedtime. Everybody in the same room was far too exciting to sleep. One night she was lying there, repeating me saying, "Shh. Shh. Shh," until Zekers informed her she wasn't the mommy.
All in all, a great vacation. Or great family time. Whatever, we all had fun!

Stock Tips

Buy! Buy! Buy! It's a bull market! This info is so good, it could almost be considered insider trading. And the product is....DermaBond. Super glue for skin. We have been customers yet again, but this time with The Daisy. My graceful little princess walked right into the corner of a desk. ~Note the tear running down her cheek.~ It wasn't bad, but that face is too pretty to mess up. Plus the poor little thing has a fivehead and we don't want to draw even more attention to it with a big ole scar in the middle. :) Here we are at the dr.'s office. Finished product.
Dermabond. Doctors *ahem* nurses (we didn't even get to see the doctor) are passing it out like candy. It's a goldmine, I'm tellin' ya.

Ya Big Nutter!

When the kids do something silly I call them a nutter--a little British slang for ya. :) For the first time this week Zekers met another boy named Ezekiel. He thinks God is a nutter because He made another boy with his name.

Growin' Like Weeds

As I was pulling weeds from the flower bed again I absent-mindedly asked why those weeds kept growing there. Zeke thinks they grow there so people can pick them. I'll share the love if anyone wants to come pick weeds.
