7 Quick Takes

Friday~July 3, 2009


1. I totally forgot to announce my favorite title(s) for the picture story on Wednesday. Whoops. So. Remember this picture? There were so many great responses, but I especially appreciated "Tales of a Former Superhero: All Washed Up" by Minnesota Mom, and "H2 oh!" by K from Range of Notion Thanks for playing along!



2. We're heading to my hometown for the 4th. This was a last-minute decision so we have no plans, really. (That's a hint to those of you who live there. Wanna hang out? Email me or facebook me or call me. I'd love to see you. Yes. You.)

3. Speaking of my hometown. Remember how I said we've decided (finally) to move there? Well, we still really want to go, but meeting with a realtor was pretty disappointing. We found out we'd most likely lose a good chunk of money on our house. I realize that's typical in this market, but we've put in almost five years of blood, sweat, and tears to improve it, so that's a hard pill to swallow. To be continued...

4. The other day Miles said, "It's a challenge to balance a book on your head." Out of nowhere. You'd think he was waaaay mature with statements like that, and he can be, but he also says things like, "I will poop at your face, Asher! How can you resist?!?" So he's still just a regular four year old.

5. Earlier this week we were over visiting my
Kate and her kiddos with our friend Susan and her kiddos.
Kate and her family have city chickens. See?
I have no reason for sharing this other than the fact that I really like this picture of one of the chickens.





6. Speaking of Katie. Asher and Miles love her so much. (They got that from me.) Asher fell the other night and his tooth went through his lip. (As you may know from my depressing post yesterday.) About an hour after the incident, Asher brought me the phone and said, "T" over and over (his word for KaTIE). He doesn't say much, but I got the message. He really really wanted me to call Katie. I asked if he wanted to tell her about his owie and he said "Uh HUH." I love that he needed to talk to her. I just love it.


7. Have you heard of Associated Content? I'm excited to say that I've just recently become a contributor there. I'll be writing posts on parenting/motherhood on a regular basis. To get started, I shared two posts from my archives. You can find them here and here, if you'd like. Associated Content is a great site to bookmark for when you need concise information on pretty much any subject. All you have to do is put in your search words, and you'll get just the information you need in well-written articles, all in one place. What I love about this is that you can not only find articles full of information, but also pieces you can relate to, just like blog posts. I'm honored to be a part of this, and I hope you'll check it out.


And now my children are losing their minds, so excited to get going.
This is what excitement looks like on Asher:

Have a good weekend!

Hey, that chicken picture is pretty rockin' pretty. And I guess Asher is okay too.

I'M TOTALLY KIDDING! You know Asher is just gorgeous!

There's a site called Backyardchickens.com that was a lot of fun for me when i had city chickens. Happy 4th.

I'm glad your little boy is growing up to understand the power of a phone call! My husband just doesn't get my numerous phone calls to my sisters!

Asher is so stinkin' cute.

This Heavenly Life said...

I will poop at your face?! Teehee. How do you not laugh when he says stuff like that? Adorable excited face, too. I think that picture looks just like you :)

charrette said...

Your boys are adorable! I have a friend like your Kate. Her name is Cari and my kids adore her. (They probably prefer her to me.) I callher mi hermana because friend just doesn't quite say it.

I hope the move works out for you guys. I really think you need the family support with Ryan's travel schedule. And -- when what you're doing is right -- the money just seems to work itself out. I'm a big believer in that. I still think manna sustains our family sometimes.
