Busy Summer

I haven't been able to post pictures lately, because of our numerous computer problems. We've been getting it "fixed" for a couple of months now. I am stuck using Joe's laptop, which has it's own problems, and I can't upload pics on it either! As you all know, I love taking pictures, and I would love to be able to post them!

Anyway, we've had a really busy summer. Almost every weekend we have a fish fry, or a cook-out. For the 4Th of July, we roasted a whole hog ( same as last year). A few weeks ago we went to Chattanooga TN, to visit my Aunt. She lives on Signal Mt., and we love visiting. I am always wishing we could stay longer :) More recently, though, Savannah has been very sick. She is much better now, but last week was pretty tough. She had a virus that turned into a respiratory infection, and she was miserable. She wouldn't eat anything for days, and I had to strongly persuade her to drink fluids, so that she wouldn't get dehydrated. She would cry and cry, until she had worn herself out. I am SO GLAD that she is doing so much better now, and that she doesn't have to take that antibiotic anymore! Isaac had the virus too, but his did not turn into an infection.

Today has been pretty normal. S & I have been "cooking", a game that they think requires water, because it is so much fun to pour water from one dish to the other, and stir stir stir. They enjoy cooking with their play dough too. Translation: giant messes. Savannah likes to make messes and clean them up, which is a good thing. I, of course, have to go behind and clean up anyway (she's only 2, after all). After lunch, I thought it would be fun for them to help me make pudding. Hahaha. We did have fun, but definitely at the expense of their clothes, the table, the floor... I made the mistake of leaving the room for a few minutes to get something. I came back to find Isaac using his pudding as a lotion, smearing it all over his legs, feet, and arms. He held up a pudding covered foot to me and grinned. Savannah had dumped hers out on the table and was making big "swirls" with her hands. I picked them up at arms length and put them directly into the bathtub. They had great fun in the tub also. I wish that I could clean the table and floor that easily... :) We then read "Blueberries for Sal", and now they are asleep. What would I do without nap time? ;-)
