Joni has been relearning some "new" words. Her two new words today, that she had no idea what they were when she climbed out of bed this morning: basement and toaster.
Jackson's biggest fascination at the moment are all the horses on the drive to my parents', and the ski boat out in the pond behind the house. He can't get enough of them.
I also keep feeling really weird when I think about it being Saturday today and I didn't go to church.
Thrilled over candy collected at the 4th of July parade
Cucumber boat races. The kids and their cousins would put their cucumbers in the stream and then race them down the water. Joni seemed to be getting a kick out of it, but feeling a little stressed at the same time. Finally she looked up at everyone and said, "Why are we doing this???" It cracked us up.
The boys taunting the ducks and geese.
Comparing dirty bums.
Watching the water from the bridge. He kept yelling, "Is water mama! Is water!"
I just keep picturing Jackson's brain thinking all the time, "What the heck is going on around here? Where did these mountains, stores, toys, playgrounds, and new foods come from?"
