a post that I forgot to post some time ago and I'm not exactly sure when I wrote it

except for the fact that there is no snow, and from the text below I can tell it hadn't reached our current 'hotter than hades' temps, so that means about 5 weeks ago??? I don't know, but here you go!
DSC_0577 DSC_0578 DSC_0579 DSC_0580 DSC_0586 DSC_0587 DSC_0588 DSC_0589 DSC_0591 Dan had to go out of town, again. The week before was for work. This time it was because of a family emergency. (Dan's dad and grandma are sick, so if you could, please pray.)  So it has been a lot of four-on-one time with these kiddos.  In fact, out of all the times Dan has ever had to leave, I think that it was the first time I did it solo.  I usually beg my mom to fly out, but this time I decided I would try to be brave.  Well Dan is home now, and I'm writing this, so I must have survived.  I couldn't help but think of Ma Ingalls.  She didn't have texting and cell phones, and I know I would have made the worst pioneer wife ever.

Summer is here-ish, though not according to the locals. Everyone is complaining about how cold and drizzly it is.  Seriously, the weather man couldn't say enough bad things about it.  All the while, Dan and I are smiling, as we feel quite comfortable in this stint of gray that reminds us of our native land.  I'm not saying gray and drizzle is the best by any stretch, but it's not snow, and it's not too hot, it's not raining too hard to do stuff, it's just not very pretty.
So the boys and I don't mind getting a little rain.  We did some yard work while Allie napped.  Then she woke and we hung out on the porch.  She sure has those boys wrapped around her finger.

Thanks Heather!
And Kayleen, I don't have a single picture from the wedding! Allie nursed and slept in my arms for the majority of the wedding. And with Dan, I had to wrangle kids the whole reception too. Also, I've found not have a lens with an automatic focus option has really affected my picture taking - which just means that I haven't been taking many pictures.
And the pictures you took of me and Dan came out great! Thank you!!
