I wanted to post this picture yesterday, but didn't have the patience. So, today it is. Not that I have learned patience overnight. It would take me years to learn patience. It's never been my strongest attribute.
This is Grandma Suzy, Noah, Emily and Ben mowing the lawn. The kids did this for hours. If Grandma stopped, Noah would kick his little feet like he was hitting a horse saying, "go, go, go." Did I write that yesterday or did I just think it? I don't know. Ben and Emily each got a turn driving. Suzy even made it into game and made Ben the Tall Grass Terminator. He was loving it.
This morning it was cloudy and windy, so it was a tad cold. Noah was none too happy about it.
By the afternoon, it cleared up nicely and we were able to ride the jet skis.
And skip rocks.
And jump on the trampoline.
We are going to try our hands at fishing tomorrow so we needed some worms. We went digging in my Dads soil and found 7 plump ones. Emily was thrilled to pick them up and put them in the cup while Ben squealed like a well, I would say little girl, but the little girl wasn't scared.
If fishing is as unsuccessful as it was two years ago, we'll have to try our same trick. Put the line in the water with a worm on it. Set up the pole on the dock and go inside. In the morning, there is a fish on the line and we make the kids think they just caught it. They fell for it two years ago, but something tells me Emily is too smart for that now.
Oh, she was the first one to crack and mention home. Noah has been getting up once during the night, so I take that feed and then put the monitor in the room with David and Emily after. Then, Noah wakes at 5:00 or 6:00 and they both wake up and can't go back to bed. This morning Emily was laying on the sofa sucking her thumb and she starting crying and saying she wanted to go home. I asked her why later and she said she missed her bed.
Funny...I don't miss mine!
