The boys got up a little early this morning for a backyard train game party. The rest of the day was a Saturday working day. A rainy day was just right for cleaning up the house (with a kids dance party, breakfast-for-lunch waffles, and nap time in the middle).
Now we're enjoying the 6:00 sunshine (a wonder of Logan Springtime - every day about 6:00 the sky clears a bit and the sun shines beautifully) with bathtime for Ellie and Owen and "The Mysterious Benedict Society" read by Jordan for Landon and me.

From Owen tonight - "Let's read a book, Daddy!"
(Current favorites: Joseph had a little Overcoat, Owl Babies, Mother Goose, Nursery Tales, Teddy Bear Teddy Bear, Brown Bear Brown Bear, Go Dog Go)
And a sweet moment from yesterday, I was resting on the couch (this cold bug is hanging on!) Owen ran out of the front room, then came back dragging a blanket from my bed behind him with all his might -- "I need to get a blanket for Mommy!"

Landon and Ellie stitched their names during Conference this morning and kept happily busy for most of the first session and a little of the afternoon (woohoo!) Such a fun project - and so fun that they enjoyed it so much!
After 3 weeks with sick kids, I finally managed to catch their long-lasting cold this weekend. So, conference was mostly a rest on the couch event for me with naps in between sessions. (But the kids have been running around and dancing and singing and playing, so I have hope that I will soon feel better too!) A favorite from Conference was the line "A child who sings is a happy child" -- if that's true, then we must have three very happy children!

These two boys (and Ellie starting today) have been sick for the past few weeks - off and on - with just enough off to keep me from taking them in to the doctor. Owen had a rough few days and I finally made an appointment with the pediatrician yesterday, but then he woke up happy and great so I canceled. Then about bedtime, we got home from a bikeride and his temperature was over 103, so in we went to Instacare. The nurses gave him some ibuprofen and he just sweetly (though sleepy and miserable!) rested with me while we waited for the doctor. As soon as the the medicine kicked in though, he was happy to sit up and play and talk about the 'big bad wolf' again and again :)
Finally after an exam and some chest x-rays the doctor let me know that it looked like pneumonia. (This was definitely one of those times I was glad I didn't just keep waiting it out) Poor little guy! Still with some antibiotics working hard in his system and a lunchtime picnic today, he was running around us in the grass with a "watch out everybody" and a "look at me!" (I've not yet learned how to get these boys to rest once they feel even a little bit better.) We'll be back to the doctor this afternoon to check up on how he's doing, but so far he is one happy guy to be feeling better!

We're super excited to be having another little boy in our family! Landon and Ellie both decided the morning of my ultrasound that they were hoping for a baby brother, so they were happy with the news. (Ellie's wishes have gone along with her current favorite names "I hope it's a girl so we can name her Sarah!" "I hope it's a boy so we can name him Nathan!")

I just turned in an application to sell at the Farmers Market this summer, and I've been loving having a reason to make more clippies and other fun things. I finally got my craft room cleaned up and re-organized, so I've had such fun just sorting through fabric scraps and pieces and finding new ways to turn them into something cute. (Since I'm unsure about whether people ever actually sell anything at the Farmers Market, I've stuck with making pretty much everything with things I already have -- which is a fun creative task too :)

There's a road we take to get the North Logan library and a favorite park where we always spot deer. There's a small apple orchard nearby that I suspect they come to visit. I still have to slow down and point the deer out to the kids whenever I see them - it just seems so fun and unexpected (even though we may have seen them there last week...) It's just such a funny part of living in Logan. I love this quick drive/ride - farmland, cows, horses, sheep (and deer!) it always makes me feel like we live in a very country town.
