Speaking of the boys, I will have to share what Logan said the other day. For those of you on Facebook, this is a repeat, sorry. I was in the mud room trying to get some wash started when Logan came in there and found a daddy long-leg crawling around. He quick went for a sandal laying there with which he was going to smash that little bugger. The spider had disappeared on him, but he was not disheartened. Instead he said in his sweet, little voice, “Come here, spider. This won’t hurt very much!” The spider didn’t believe him.
Wyatt is growing like a weed and is the lovable teddy bear of our family. He is a good baby, especially since he loves to suck his two middle fingers. Those fingers have saved my sanity so many times that at this point I don’t care how hard it may be to break him of the habit. It was especially nice when he and I went flying back to Indiana for Seth and Jessica’s wedding last weekend. Flying with him was not bad at all. And the weekend back there was something I will treasure always! Thank you, Dad, for making it possible. Just so all you people know, I did not simply run off and leave Lowell without his consent. We could have brought the whole family, but it was a last minute decision and worked out better for just Wyatt and I to go.
Thanks to our wonderful Lord, Lowell now has more work lined up than he’s had in over two years!! We are so excited! In fact, the week I had to fly back to IN, Lowell had so many things going with work, etc, that we were rather stressed. And you all may think we’re nuts, but we’ve spent the majority of the last 2 1/2 years in each other’s company almost 24 hours a day and now when he’s gone for a whole day, I rather miss the ornery guy. I’ve been known to call him up with some lame excuse just because I need to hear his voice! I guess being married for 11 years does something to the mind and heart!
Lowell’s also been hunting alot this fall. We had our last elk roast today for lunch, so it looks like I might have to lower my standards to plain old beef again! He hasn’t shot any elk or deer yet, although he still has rifle season and late archery. I’d like to actually hunt for deer up here behind our house when rifle season opens.
Well, I need to get moving….I can smell my raspberry/blueberry cobbler that’s almost done baking. Lowell wanted blueberry….I wanted raspberry. So we compromised. His half has blueberries and my half has raspberries. We will not weigh ourselves tomorrow!
We love you all and wish you God’s richest blessings!
