Did I mention we are moving?
The house is ours. The refrigerator arrived. The kitchen and laundry room are fully functional. Our bed will be delivered at the end of the week. We are looking for a couch. Oh, and rugs for the hardwood floors. And the children have successfully tracked in a good portion of dirt from the yard and have generously placed it all over the place.
This is real life people.
Because it has been raining, and because we aren't on a hard deadline to get completely moved, we are taking baby steps. Here is the first load of boxes that Joshua and my Dad brought for me to start on.
And here is the first empty box!!
And here is where I where I pretend I have never heard of Child Labor Laws.
Have no fear...they only worked for a little bit and then they went out to play on the swing set that was, at the time, surrounded by all sorts of old paint cans and such. And a few tubes of unidentifiable stuff.

Thomas has taken to showing off his climbing finesse...
...and his getting stuck finesse, too!
And this? This is the creation Thomas designed especially for Sarah Grace. Upon receiving it, she exclaimed. 'Oh, Thomas! It is SO beautiful! I just can't imagine a better brother in the whole wide world!'
And as my heart swelled, I could see their sweet little halos peeking out from behind the kid filth and hear angels singing a chorus.
