spring break


It’s amazing how fast one can get used to sleeping in. I automatically wake up at 6:30 on school morning whether I want to or not, so it’s thoroughly surprising to tell myself to sleep an hour longer and have it actually happen. The only downside is missing Caleb leaving for work. That, and the boys fixing themselves breakfast. Which translates to bread, cereal boxes, milk and jelly left open on the counter. Jonathan brought me breakfast in bed this morning. I surreptitiously scraped off half the butter and showered compliments on the chef. He learned how to use the coffee maker from Jackson. I don’t even know what to say about that.


We spent yesterday on the trampoline. No really. There was at least one person on it most of the day. I bounced on it while I took the dogs out and while I talked to my sister-in-law on the phone. And then I texted Caleb pictures just so he’d know some of my harebrained ideas actually turn out awesome.

In case you hadn’t noticed Jackson’s hair is LONG. And he doesn’t want it cut so I guess we’re in for another summer of me trying to keep it out of his face. I know virtually nothing about styling hair this length and google hasn’t been very helpful.


It’s been a good 9 months since the boys were on the trampoline and while I was watching them play together yesterday I noticed how much things have changed between them. They play ROUGH. Somewhere along the way they lost the gentle baby play and turned into little boys with a mutual understanding. You slug me and I’ll slug you. And laugh while doing it.

This is what little boys are made of.
