Wanted to include a few random pictures since it has been so ridiculously long since I have posted anything! Jonathan is in is baseball uniform. I need to get a better picture. One in action perhaps. He is number 42 which was my highschool basketball number. Ashley chose that number for him. I was really touched at his gesture and that he remembered the number.
Well, day six of Ashley's trip is almost done. I had planned to write something every day to keep track of what all we did while he was gone. You see how that has gone! Briefly this is what we have been up to:
Two ball games for Jonathan. At one of these Eli chewed on a cigarette. He even smelled like tabacco. made me sick!! The other game his skin got a little pink from the sun. I felt terrible!
We visited Ashley's grandma and aunt. They always crack me up. they think Jonathan and Eli are quite wonderful which is so good for my heart.
Numerous 4-wheeler rides. Eli loves to go and makes the funniest noises. Jonathan is getting a little too comfortable on his for my liking. He has too much Ashley in him for his own good!!
Ate lunch with Jonathan at school. It is always such fun to go. I like being known as Jonathan's mom.
Got Eli's picture taken, finally.
Both boys have a cough and runny noses. Not fun.
Helped make snow cones at school for all the students since it is state assessment time. Brought back memories of working before kids.
Several walks. They both so love to be outside.
A little work at the office. A few projects at the house.
A little bit of mowing. Lots of laundry.
Attempting to handle phone calls for Ashley.
Eating supper outside on the deck. It was a gorgeous evening.
Survived church without Daddy. the boys did really well.
Went to one of Jonathan's friend's birthday party. Kids are funny when they see each other in a new surrounding.
Eli is still gagging a lot on chunkier foods but we did add spinach and black beans to the foods he has tried. so far the only thing he seems to consistently not like is bananas. Loves pears and plums though. tomorrow I am going to try mangos with him.
Cut Jonathan's hair. And his ear. Felt soooo bad. Trimmed my own hair a bit. I have never done that before. Not sure it was such a good idea.
Eat ice cream nearly every day!
Watched some Little House on the Prairie.
Finished reading Farmer Boy with Jonathan.
Felt very grateful for phone calls and text that amazingly work even from Honduras!
