Boy have we been busy...(a bunch of posts all rolled in to one)

We went to see the Hayes in Spring Hill on Wednesday. The boys had so much fun playing with Maddy and Jack, whom they hardly ever get to see now that they moved to the country! I had to pry them off of the tractor. I think I have a great idea for Christmas this year...

On Labor Day, Jonathan (and Cooper) started building me a little garden plot in the backyard. I'm so excited to start planting some vegetables for the fall! And no, honey, it won't turn into a sand box.

Another Labor Day project- Eli & Cooper helped Daddy wash the cars (but mostly washed themselves)






While they washed I took some pics of my some of my favorite flowers- purslane (or moss rose I think). They are so pretty and just never give up no matter how dry it's been. I need flowers like that! I know you are laughing at me right now Amanda. (If you're even bothering to read this) :)

Our neighbor and friend Tiffany just had a litter of 8 puppies (her dog, not herself) and Eli and Cooper got to love and torture them when they were just a few days old!

notice the new haircut...Jonathan took him, not me





The soccer season started for Silas a couple of weeks ago and the boys are all loving running around and showing off their skills! (just kidding about the skills part...don't really have any to speak of, but they do have fun!)
