Owens first camping trip was this past Friday, and it was a blast! We played charades bythe fire, roasted marshmallows and took some hikes. Charis learned about indians and thanksgiving. More on that later. Just had to upload a pic for you. I love my perfect little family.
I sound fussy.
I am... but I still feel alright. I came home to a clean house, a sleeping baby, and dinner ready to cook tonight. I want to run tonight. But I want to be present in the children's evening... and take it easy on Joel, my main man-tag team mate.
We'll see what happens. Breakfast for dinner tonight! Aaron is going to cook..... and Charis and I are having omelets. Owen may be getting his first bite of rice cereal tonight! he could eat all day, and still eat some more. But, he does refuse very clearly when he is full. The boy just likes food, you know? He sure is a cutey :)
I think way faster than I type. I have so much to say. Maybe it's because I spend so much of my time alone (but with Owen) and don't interact as much. I am home alone, more of a hermit. It's ok. baby o is stirring... gotta share the love :)

Nine eleven gave me a family. It changed my course, in some ways. I chose to stop my nomadic existence, and experience things I before hadn't known if I ever wanted. I'll stop with the vagueness now. Just sayin. It changed me. It changed us. It was a moment all of us will never forget.

Today, a little love to my baker's rack at some point. I am following flylady again... trying to bring the order to our chaotically small home, paring down and putting away. My goal is to get the house in such order that when it is time to move, we simply pack up what's left and get the heck outta dodge. I am gonna miss this house though, so many firsts. First preschool, first bachelor's degree, first kindergarten picture, Joel's graduation, mine, first marathon, our 30th birthdays....first boy.... sigh. My memories are making me melancholy lately. Gonna have to fix that somehow.
Will be adding pics to these posts either today or tomorrow. Gotta have pics!
