We've had a weekend filled with all kinds of fun. And we hardly left the house. I say this all the time, but I am so thankful for this season of our lives where we are home most of the time. I'm sure I'll love being on the go with these boys one day, but right now I love our days just playing outside.
We finally had a weekend without rain, and we took advantage of it by spending every possible moment outside. Sam and Luke got filthy in the dirt. Sam was fine as long as it wasn't on his hands. Luke became one with the dirt by eating it. He doesn't care one bit that the dirt is all over his body.
The funniest moment of the weekend was when I picked them up at Peggy's Friday. Luke was still asleep, and when Peggy brought him out of the room where he sleeps, he was in a dress. I could not stop laughing. He had a blowout, and I'd forgotten to put a change of clothes in his bag. The dress was all she had. I brought him home and let him crawl to the back of the house where Sean was. Sean didn't think it was near as funny as I did. Then, Sam had to get some attention, so he put the dress on.
And a few funny things Sam is saying these days:
- He has been looking at the blog books, and I showed him my big belly when I was pregnant with both of the boys. We were getting in the car the other day, and he said, "Momma, I want to get back in your belly."
- Lainey, his friend at Peggy's, wasn't there Friday. Mrs. Peggy told him that she was in Jackson. He said, "She went to Nanny and Daddy Bill's house." (She was in Jackson, MS for a doctor's appointment, but he remembered that Nanny and Daddy Bill live in Jackson.)
- We've been leaving my car in the driveway on pretty days so Sam and Luke can play in the carport. One day this week, Sean knew it was going to rain, so he pulled my car in the carport. We got ready to leave the next morning, and Sam said, "Daddy put the car in the carport. Good Daddy."
- Sean made a big breakfast this morning, and Sam said, "Daddy, this is delicious."
We gave Luke a lime after supper, and he just kept licking it and making the funniest faces.
